The fireplace hadn’t looked like a time-portal.
All Kate had wanted was a fun, relaxing day out, watching the knights jousting at Nottingham Castle. What she ended up with was something quite different.
Transported in a heartbeat from 2011 to 1485, how will Kate handle life at the Ricardian court? Even more importantly, how will she cope when she catches the eye of the king himself?

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Kate knows a lot about King Richard III and when she falls into a fireplace at Nottingham Castle and travels back to 1485, she gets to learn about him firsthand. I enjoyed reading about what happened in the time before the king was killed as well as how the author portrays him. Since we don’t know how he really was, it was nice to see him portrayed in a positive and romantic light.

It’s a shame this novella wasn’t longer but it’s still good. I especially liked the ending.

Author Bio 

Jennifer is a marine biologist by training, who developed an equal passion for history whilst stalking Mary, Queen of Scots of childhood holidays (she since moved on to Richard III). She completed her BSc and MSc at the University of Hull, and has worked as a marine environmental consultant since graduating.

Enrolling on an adult education workshop on her return to the north-east reignited Jennifer’s pastime of creative writing, and she has been filling notebooks ever since. In 2014, Jennifer won the Story Tyne short story competition, and also continues to work on developing her poetic voice, reading at a number of events, and with several pieces available online. Her Kindred Spirits novels are published by Crooked Cat Books and available via Amazon.
