If y’all have been reading along, you’ve seen my review of the first in Amy Matayo’s Charles & Company Romance series, Before Time Runs Out (affiliate link). Well, guess what?! She’s got the second in the series coming out in June, and today I’m sharing the cover!
I tell you what, I’d pick up these books just for the elegant covers, even if I didn’t know what an phenomenal author Ms. Matayo is. I’m not a romance reader, and yet here I am, reading romance and loving it.
For newly published author Eliza Sterling, having her first book launch party at the Metropolitan Museum of Art is a dream come true. When your book is a modern-day retelling of Great Expectations by Charles Dickens and the Met is hosting a display of rarely seen Dickens’ artifacts at the same time, she chalks it up to a case of good timing.
For publicly disgraced, former best-selling author Lew McDonnell, seeing a debut author having her first book launch party at the Met brings up all sorts of resentments. Especially when the book this lady is promoting just happens to be one of his old manuscripts that she’s clearly plagiarized and claimed for herself.
When heated words are exchanged in front of a display case containing an original copy of Great Expectations, both Lew and Eliza are prepared for a fight. But they aren’t prepared for the room to shake, for the display case to shatter, or for the old book to send them both careening toward a new existence entirely.
When Lew wakes up on the floor of the Charles Dickens museum in London to see Eliza working there as a tour guide, he knows something has gone horribly wrong. It’s the same day and time, but suddenly he’s the best-selling author headlining his own book launch again, and Eliza is serving him drinks and working all hours to make ends meet. And the weirdest thing of all?
Lew is the only one who remembers their former lives.
