Troianne (The Time Travel Society) (Volume 1)

Troianne (The Time Travel Society) (Volume 1)  by Crystal Miles Gauthier

He said all the right things... 
Then left her alone. 

Troianne Shelden is your everyday, intelligent student. With a love for history and stunning figure, she's a catch for any guy. But after a night of passion with a handsome stranger, introduced to her by their mutual friends, she finds herself pregnant with nowhere to turn for advice. 

Her parents passed away long ago and, soon after Troianne finds out she's pregnant, her grandmother passes, too. Left with a large inheritance, she looks forward to life with her new baby. 

Fate takes the wheel when she goes into labor. On her way to the hospital, she passes out from intense pain and wakes up in a very different place... 

The next thing she knows, she's hearing carriage wheels and voice shouting for help. Lightning illuminates the inside of what was, only moments before, the back of a taxi cab. When the door opens, she's greeted by a handsome man dressed like he stepped out of the past. 

In shock, she realizes that she's somehow traveled back in time-- 
...and she has no idea how to return.

2.0 out of 5 stars Major editing neededJune 4, 2015
This review is from: Troianne (Time Travel Society Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
* I received a copy of this book free in exchange for an honest review *

I realy wanted to like this book. There was an interesting story there. The problem was the writing/editing. A lot of details were contradicting. Like when Troi tells her Meemaw she tried contacting Becker, but he hadn't responded to her emails or calls. Yet, in two other places, it said she has no clue where to reach him. There were editing errors with punctuation throughout.
This is supposed to be a romance, but we just shoot to falling in love, without actually seeing the romance develop.
We have Terrance saying he isn't going to tell the "dinner party guests" anything, yet the guests mention him telling them.
It wasn't very true to sticking with the historical facts. We have characters that are not time travel people, speaking like they were modern.
I disliked the "baby magic" it just felt tacky to me.

I think some major editing needs to be done to this book, only then could it possibly be a 3 or 4 star story. As it is, it was not worth reading.
Why no voting buttons? We don't let customers vote on their own reviews, so the voting buttons appear only when you look at reviews submitted by others.
