REVIEW, BLOG TOUR & GIVEAWAY - West by Lizzy Ford

Award Winning and fan favorite author, Lizzy Ford, introduces us to a new time travel romance, with WEST, which Outlander fans are sure to love.

If you could change history, would you? WEST is the first installment in a series of standalone novels in the History Interrupted series featuring four women sent back to different time periods to modify historical events. Fans of Diana Gabaldon's OUTLANDER series will cherish this new series from Bestselling Author Lizzy Ford! Look for EAST, NORTH, AND SOUTH  in 2015!

Synopsis:

If you could change history, would you?

College graduate Josephine “Josie” Jackson answers ‘yes’ to the question on a survey while visiting an Old West tourist trap. The next morning, she wakes up in Indian Territory in the 1840s, where she’s given a mission to complete before she can return to her time: to reset history by finding and stopping the man responsible for a horrific massacre.

It seems easy enough, until she discovers that three other women have been sent back to the same time period. When Josie uncovers what happened to them, she realizes the chances of her getting out of the past alive are not good.

To survive, she’ll have to trust the very man she’s there to stop, someone who has every reason to distrust her and only one reason to help her - to prove he’s not the monster she claims he’ll become.


4 out of 5 (really liked it)

I received this book from Barclay Publicity in return for a fair and honest review.

If something sounds too good to be true then it probably is. This is something that Josie should or shouldn't have thought about before taking the survey, depending on how you want the story to go. She ends up many years in the past to try and change an event that she doesn't know about, involving possibly two men whose names she knows but that's it. There is a mystery here though as she finds out that she is not the first one to be sent back. Who is Carter and what is his game? What about the Sheriff? He's certainly up to something. 

This story wraps itself around you as you learn more about Josie and what makes her tick as well as the circumstances she finds herself in. There are some characters that you will detest every time you see their name (Philip) and some that you know have done 'bad things' but you still like them (Fighting Badger).

The story slowly comes together, keeping you in suspense the whole time. Warning though - there is a major twist at the end that had me gasping in disbelief. This book wraps everything nicely together whilst leading nicely onto the next book. Definitely recommended for all fans of Lizzy Ford, Doctor Who, time travel and romance.
