I love the idea of being guided to your true love through a magic brooch. Although the brooch is ugly, it is so much more. I think its outward appearance would deter the haughty and the non-believers, but for those who truly believe in love, they might see the brooch for the magical item it really is.
I really enjoyed watching two people of different time periods try to learn about and fit into the new time period they had traveled to. The interactions between characters was amusing and had me laughing throughout the book. The author did an incredible job at transporting the reader into the story and allowed us to consider small details of everyday life we might not have paid attention to otherwise, especially when being transported back to 1812.
This book was fun and enjoyable to read, and I know others will enjoy it as well!

“You can stay with me.”
The words were out of her mouth before she knew her own intentions. “I do not know where I maintain my accommodations, but I believe I have some form of…” Her voice trailed off.
Tina said in an incredulous voice, “You live in a frigging mansion.”
“Then you are invited to my frigging mansion to stay with me. Who else resides in the frigging mansion?”
Doctor Demfry chuckled.
“I am sorry this is so comical to you, Doctor Demfry, but I cannot remember who lives in the frigging mansion.”
Legend has it Cupid’s Brooch sends you to your one true love…
Actress Liz Barrett, adored by millions, wields Cupid’s Brooch and trades places with Miss Elizabeth Barrett of 1812, a young lady without connections who fears having no choice in whom she must marry.
Either Liz’s rabid fans have made up this crazy story, while Elizabeth suffers what is surely purgatory, or they’ve traded places in time and perhaps even fallen into the arms of their one true love.
But what will Lord Whittington and Dr. Demfry do if fate is determined to switch them back?
