YAY! Today is my stop on this massive and amazing The Write Reads Book Tour!!
Keith Nolan falls in love with a remarkable young woman from the past, talking to him on a home video she recorded in 1989.
To keep their conversation going, he must find more of her tapes—while forces work against them both, and time is running out.- Goodreads
The first thing that came to mind, once I finished reading this book, was how beautiful it was. From beginning to end, I had a overwhelming feeling of nostalgia and that was because this story reminded me of one of my favorite movies called the Lake House with Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves.
Side Note: I love me some Keanu Reeves and will watch/support almost anything he does.
But this nostalgia had me on the edge of my seat. It was a form of rush because the story is dripping in romance and the race against time.
A Different Time is a simple story. I loved every bit of it. Keith is 22 when he finds the video and at and first I was like hmm this isn’t genuine at all and he is just smitten and wants some excitement in his life. But as the story continues I change my tune. His heart is coming from a good place and as a reader you feel that, so if you pick up this book give it a chance.
The pace of the novel is a bit slow, so if you looking for face action race against the clock speed style (see what I did there) this isn’t exactly it. This book hits you on an emotional level about true love, destiny and what you are willing to do for it.
What stood out to me, although a simple story, was the twist and the ending. It was not something I saw coming nor was expecting but it was a slow build getting there. I would recommend this book. Its light, refreshing and romantic.
Also that cover though!! *heart eyes*
