    Even with some of the uneven writing, this was a fun read! 'Whirlpools' was full of action, adventure, and a great romance between the H/h - Duncan and Erin. The time-traveling sequences were freaky, and I loved the author's detailed knowledge of history (Maryland and Great Britain in the year 1715). There were two occasions when I wanted to strangle Erin for being TSTL, but she made up for her lack of brain power later on in the read.

There were two occasions when I wanted to strangle Erin for being TSTL, but she made up for her lack of brain power later on in the read. Duncan seemed a bit withdrawn at first - thanks in large part to his bitch of a mother - but he was also a badass. I loved the man! Especially when he was ready to throw down with anyone who insulted Erin, who was biracial... and from the future. The story ended with the bad guy and his spawn making plans for revenge, so you guessed it... there are more books in this saga. I'm not sure if I'll read more, as I don't care for long, drawn-out series. I'm thinking about it though, as I really enjoyed this book. 3.75 stars.

    A new chapter in the Graham saga has begun with this story - and what an exciting beginning it is! Not only is there time travel, but there’s the added complication of a mixed-race relationship in an era when black people were routinely mistreated and looked down upon, two horrific villains, a quest to find a missing person, and enemies appearing right , left and centre. The main characters have to make it through one scrape after another in a breathtaking sequence of events.

Not only is there time travel, but there’s the added complication of a mixed-race relationship in an era when black people were routinely mistreated and looked down upon, two horrific villains, a quest to find a missing person, and enemies appearing right , left and centre. The main characters have to make it through one scrape after another in a breathtaking sequence of events. Through it all the hero shines - he’s not just handsome but intelligent and liberal before his time, and also open-minded, brave and honourable. I loved how he took to the 21st century like a duck to water, remaining mostly unruffled and calm throughout. The heroine struggled a bit more when it was her turn to be thrown out of her comfort zone, giving rise to some spirited discussions (to say the least), but the reader is always on her side, cheering her on. It was incredibly interesting to view the world of 1715 through the eyes of someone so different, and for that matter, learning a lot about this era which isn’t used often enough as a background for historical novels IMO. Throughout, the couple’s chemistry could not be denied and the romance is lovely. As this is the first in this new spinoff series, we don’t have to say goodbye to Duncan and Erin quite yet - instead we can look forward to more adventures with this couple soon. I can’t wait!

    Anna Belfrage’s newest time slip novel hit the shelves just when I was looking for my first summer read, and what a fabulous way to plunge into vacation season. Without leaving my sun lounge I was transported into eighteenth-century Scotland with the gorgeous Duncan Melville, and although I didn’t want to share, I grudgingly accepted that Erin Barnes was the perfect match for him. Together, they sizzle, and I was soon swept away into a classic Belfrage historical fiction romance…gorgeous scenery Anna Belfrage’s newest time slip novel hit the shelves just when I was looking for my first summer read, and what a fabulous way to plunge into vacation season. Without leaving my sun lounge I was transported into eighteenth-century Scotland with the gorgeous Duncan Melville, and although I didn’t want to share, I grudgingly accepted that Erin Barnes was the perfect match for him. Together, they sizzle, and I was soon swept away into a classic Belfrage historical fiction romance…gorgeous scenery, brilliant characters and a perfect amount of romance to raise the temperature but not overheat the plot. I really enjoyed both stories and settings equally, which in itself is a huge compliment to Ms. Belfrage’s deft story-telling abilities. I have not read her entire Graham saga series, so as I enjoyed reuniting with some of the characters, I welcomed others who were new, and some of the relationships, such as Duncan’s poignant interactions with his mother, really were compelling. The back and forth between time periods were seamless, and I have to commend Ms Belfrage on her sensitive and beautiful handling of race and attitude in both stories. Highly recommend…load up your kindle and head to the pool with Duncan and Erin now.

    A gripping tale… I am a fan of time-slip historical novels, and in this tale, the lives of an 18th century man and 21st century woman collide. Hungry for a mix of adventure with history, romance, politics, a mysterious humming locket, and villains? Then this dish will more than satisfy. Duncan, sword in hand, rescues Erin. There’s plenty of conflict driving the plot, including how 18th century man discovers and adapts to life in the 21st century.

Hungry for a mix of adventure with history, romance, politics, a mysterious humming locket, and villains? Then this dish will more than satisfy. Duncan, sword in hand, rescues Erin. There’s plenty of conflict driving the plot, including how 18th century man discovers and adapts to life in the 21st century. But Duncan barely has time to get used to running water, cars, and the internet - escaping Erin’s enemies sends them back to his time. Wonderful characters and an intricate plot make this novel a page-turner. Belfrage knows how to immerse the reader in time and place. She brings everyday life of the past into vivid detail, and she knows her history. As a reader mostly of medieval historical fiction (12th & 13th centuries), I loved this picture of early 18th century England and Scotland in the time before the more well known 1745 Battle of Culloden. Duncan Melville is related to a host of characters the reader might have met in Belfrage’s Graham Saga, but knowledge of those books isn’t necessary to fully enjoy this story. The Whirlpools of Time stands alone, with the author skillfully introducing bits of that ‘history’ where needed. Get ready for a great ride. Highly recommended.

    When you open an Anna Belfrage story, you know you are in for an exciting and intelligent read. The Whirlpools of Time is no different. There is time travel, plus a courageous heroine, endearing hero, quirky characters, family, a mystery, romance, dreadful villains, the eighteenth century – all deftly written. The author is exceptionally good at portraying relationships in good times and bad.

The Whirlpools of Time is no different. There is time travel, plus a courageous heroine, endearing hero, quirky characters, family, a mystery, romance, dreadful villains, the eighteenth century – all deftly written. The author is exceptionally good at portraying relationships in good times and bad. She goes beyond the expected stereotypes often found in ‘historic’ fiction and her characters become living people in the flesh. The adaptation (or not!) of each main character to the other’s time is witty and often poignant. In previous books in the Graham saga, we often see the figure of ‘the outsider’ and here the author has portrayed her heroine as a modern American young woman of mixed race. Never obvious, Belfrage has shown us the subtle and not so subtle difficulties of a free woman of colour in the early eighteenth century. A clever and insightful study while keeping the story moving at a cracking pace. Readers of previous Graham series books will not be disappointed in any respect with this new spinoff. New readers will be fascinated and will probably want to search for the original Graham Saga. Highly recommended.

It immediately jogs your memory of the other Graham books, and how enjoyable they were. This is a superbly written, about a twenty first century woman Erin, and the man she falls in love with, an eighteenth century man, Duncan Melville. It is fascinating to see how Anna works out the time travel, and how they fall in love. The differences in the times makes it stimulating, and it definitely gets the imagination going. The author gives great detail about the heroine who is of mixed race who travels back in time to the 18th Century, and the trials she faces in Scotland , England and in Annapolis before 1745. This book is a page turner, one better than the next. There is always a villain who is the most detested character in both of the times, and The Authors description hits our imagination with a magnificent bolt. The research on the history during the 18th century makes the story truly fascinating. Definitely a book worth reading. The suspense and nefarious characters will make you want to read more!

    Wow - Anna Belfrage is an amazing storyteller! I absolutely adore all of her books and this one did not disappoint. So glad to spend more time with the Graham clan but with an interesting twist. Can't wait to read the next book in this new series. If you have never read Anna before, you definitely should. Start with A Rip in the Veil and go from there. You will have many many hours of engrossing reading. Wow - Anna Belfrage is an amazing storyteller! I absolutely adore all of her books and this one did not disappoint.

    Excellent read Another in the Graham saga, a double translation in time; just as gripping, rather more adult. An excellent read, not to be missed.
