The Broken

My favorite time hopping series is back in audiobook form. That’s right, I’m talking about Echoes from the Past by Irina Shapiro. Today, I’d like to discuss the series’s grand finale, The Broken. As always, I will try to keep my review relatively spoiler free, but if I surprise you, remember this amazing series is on book eight!

  • Overall Rating: 6/6 Glass Slippers
  • Genre: Historical and Contemporary Romance and Drama
  • Heat Rating: ♥♥

In 2015 Dr. Quinn Allenby is called to inspect the skeletal remains of an infant for the hit TV show Echoes from the Past, a program that “solves” old murders and deaths from centuries ago. A mother herself, the work is especially difficult, as the remains have been tampered with and the skeleton is new enough that, for the first time, the family might be still alive. But with the help of a broach found with the baby, she’ll work to put a name to the remains.

In 1955 nurse Helen meets David, who sweeps her off her feet. At first, their courtship is secretive, as Helen’s mother despises the thought of her only child being whisked away. And once they’re allowed to wed, Helen believes herself to be the luckiest woman alive. But when a chance discovery in her mother’s bedroom threatens not only her marriage, but her immortal soul, Helen will have to decide if the truth is worth her happiness.

Through the decades, a secret has been kept, one buried in the garden of an unassuming London home.

As always, I was immediately drawn into the story in a way I’m normally not when it comes to most books. Falling back into Quinn’s complicated life with her messy, extended family is always fun, as is following her into the past to untangle the life of someone who’s only left bones behind. Her tale is one of back stabbing siblings, unreliable parents, and a marriage stronger than most I read about. She has to fight for the shreds of normalcy like packing her daughter Emma’s lunch for school and setting up coffee meetings with her boss in between fact checking her visions.

Since this is the last book in the series, I’ll miss it greatly. The way Shapiro is able to weave the past and present together to form a seamless story is something I’ll always admire. She ended the series in a strong, yet organic, way where most storylines are tied up, and while the future is uncertain for some of the cast, they’ve all more or less ended up just where they needed to be.

Overall, and as always, I recommend this book, and all of Echoes from the Past to all contemporary and historical fiction fans who are looking for their next six glass slipper read.

A Little V-Day Love

Valentine’s Day, a day of grand gestures, little notes, chocolates, cards, and flowers. But for romance readers, it’s also a time to appreciate the stories that make us melt. So I’ve compiled a short list of some Valentine’s Day books to add a little more love to your holiday.

The Giving Hearts – Sinclair Jayne

Marietta, Montana local Miranda owns and operates a small gift shop in the historic Graff Hotel. During the month of February, she asks the town to do small acts of kindness. Meanwhile, orthopedic surgeon Whitman never thought he’d step foot in Marietta again. But when he’s told to work at their hospital for a month before going on to his dream job in LA, he’ll remember all too well what he left behind in his home town.

The Tycoon’s Kiss – Jane Porter

Marietta, Montana librarian Taylor prefers to read about romance instead of trying her hand at love. And when she’s pushed into attending the Valentine Ball with tech bachelor Troy, she’s horrified. Troy wasn’t thrilled either, but he loves a challenge, and melting Taylor’s cold exterior seems like a fun time.

Texas Bachelor – Eve Gaddy and Katherine Garbera

Johnny and Fiona are only partners in a law firm until they’re matched at the annual Valentine’s Day dance. There’s always been a hint of something more between them, but one night of romance turns into more than either expected. But to follow their hearts, they may have to leave behind all they once knew.

Valentine Charms – Anne McAllister

Every year, a secret admirer leaves second grade teacher Jane a charm for Valentine’s Day. Those little gifts were the closest she’d come to love, but her students thought she needed a little push to find the man of her dreams. Football star Zach has had his eye on Jane for years, but hasn’t plucked up the courage to go the distance. Twenty-three second graders decided to make a play of their own and make sure their teacher has a date for Valentine’s Day at last.

The Trouble With Valentine’s Day – Rachel Gibson

Kate hates Valentine’s Day, and when she’s broken up with and forced to move back to her small hometown in Idaho, she figures the holiday will be even more lame than the year before. Rob’s the former hockey star who now owns the sports shop in town, and he has little interest in anything V-Day related. But a chance meeting in a grocery store makes both of them reconsider what they always thought.

Dear Cupid – Laurie LeClair

Librarian Gemma wasn’t too keen on reviving her town’s newspaper’s Dear Cupid love advice column, but she’s too nice to refuse, even when she learns she’ll be taking over it with local architect Sean. Sean has his eye on renovating the building Gemma’s family’s antique store is in, and originally decides to help with the Dear Cupid column to get close to Gemma to get her help. But as time goes on and more couples are brought together, there’s only two people left who could use a little of Cupid’s magic for Valentine’s Day.

Dog Park Sweethearts – Sasha Summers

Autumn has everything she’s ever wanted in life, but she can’t be truly happy until her dad finds love. Luckily, she has the perfect woman in mind—Noah’s mother. Noah is only in town for a little while, but he’s on board with Autumn’s matchmaking plan. As the scheming pair grows closer, Noah starts to wonder if Autumn is his ideal Valentine, even if his time in town is running out.

Cursed by Cupid – Wendy Sparrow

Tilly never used to be so terrible with love, and she refuses to think not passing on a silly chain email made her perpetually single. But as she comes upon another Valentine’s Day without a date, she’s wondering if she should have just sent on “Cupid’s Curse.” Bryant doesn’t think the curse is real, but he’ll take his chances if it means a night out with Tilly. Will they survive the first date, or will Cupid claim another victim?

Valentine Kisses – Ann B. Harrison

Reality TV show host Bella decides to take some time off to visit her sister in Cherry Lake for some R&R. She ends up as the temporary head chef at the local hotel and remembers what it’s like to love what you do. Single father and fire chief Jake puts his skills to the test when the newest chef in town sets her kitchen on fire. With Valentine’s Day approaching, will they whip up some romance in the kitchen?

A Dog Called Valentine – Roxanne Snopek

Animal shelter volunteer Lily has her hands full when someone dumps a dog in her lap right after Valentine’s Day. The dog’s a wild one that only former K9 cop Shane can handle. He agrees to teach Lily a few tricks of the trade, then wash his hands of all things furry forever. But as the pair work together, his heart begins to open up to both Lily and the dog called Valentine.

Not Okay Cupid – Heidi R. Kling

Hazel had it all; the grades, the man, and a perfect best friend…until her BFF and her BF decide to hook up right before Valentine’s Day. She’s crushed until her BFF’s older brother comes to her rescue with a plan. Felix hates how his little sister betrayed Hazel and vows to help her become the “perfect” girl to break her ex’s heart. But as they work together to exact her revenge, the plan goes off the rails in a major way.

The Valentine Quest – Melissa McClone

Nevada goes to Marietta, Montana to work on her PHD dissertation just as the town’s Valentine’s Day celebrations are beginning. She hates the holiday, but loves the prize for one of the events—a tropical vacation she knows her military brother deserves. Ex-bull rider Dustin is tired of catering to tourists and hopes winning a tropical vacation will help his mood. The unlikely pair joins forces for a better chance of winning, but it could cost them everything.


What’s on your TBR list this Valentine’s Day? Let me know! I’m always looking for my next favorite read.
