The Accidental Heiress – CJ Fosdick

Five of five stars

While this is the third of a series, I had no problem at all reading it without having read the first two – though I will go back and read them.

Fosdick tells an engaging and intriguing tale that spans through the present day – and well into the past.  I had no trouble keeping straight who was who – whether in the past or the present – and becoming totally immersed in the stories she tells.  This is an author with a clear love for her characters that is evident in how well she draws them, and how sympathetic they all are to the reader.

The Accidental Heiress is – in part – the story of Jess and Robbie.  Time travellers who found each other by chance and married, in the present day; they are finally on their much delayed honeymoon in Ireland, Robbie’s home of more than a century before.

The Accidental Heiress is also a story of social justice and much needed change.  In its recapping of events of the past – its way of explaining present day confusions – it addresses the situations that often brought unimaginable results to many who felt helpless to counter their circumstances.

Jess and Robbie have a love that spans centuries, but their story is ageless.  From the crash into the Shannon on the last leg of their journey to honeymoon, to the journey home again, I could not bring myself to leave them until I knew all of what happened.  I’m sure you’ll feel the same way as well.  I highly recommend this author, and this series.

The first of this series is found here:
