I have really began to like Jenny Lykins work! While all the books I've read so far have a Time Travel theme, they are all unique in their own way.

Waiting for Yesterday follows Barrett, a sad and very alone woman in 1997, who gets sent back in time by her guardian angel. She is sent to find love and is thrust into an awful position.

I connected with Waiting for Yesterday more then the others I've read by Jenny, it just struck me as being more real. The beginning is just wow! What a way to find ou
Paranormal Romance
Brooding over the fact that her ex boyfriend has just married her twin sister, the heroine falls asleep in a B&B and wakes up in 1887 in the body of another woman who's in the middle of childbirth. From that point on, she constantly confuses the people around her as she's completely different from the woman she's supposed to be.

This is the only book I disliked from this author. Too much detailed information that makes me cringe in certain areas. I can handle the details of her giving birth as that's part of the main plot.

This recently came out for the kindle, and I remembered enjoying it when I read it before. Still my favorite kind of story (time travel)

this was a re-read. I don't remember when I read it originally, but its been a few years. I didn't remember exactly what happened, which makes it always fun to re-read a good story. :) my favorite kind of story... time travel romance! :)

Sweet story

I'm new to this writer but it was pleasantly surprising. The slow heat between the lovers but the only thing g drove me mad was the thing about time travel romance one has to t e all the other.

Time travel romance! Woman from 1997 gets thrown back in time to 1887 to learn how to love and be loved and stop just getting thru day by day. Nothing great!

A good read

I liked this book a lot. The only reason I'm giving it four stars is because of the spelling and grammatical errors that are in it.
