Everything happens in its time…

For Jeffrey Oakes, life in the seventeenth century hasn’t been the thrilling change of pace he hoped it would be. The lack of power tools, better hygiene, and cold beer has him yearning for the luxuries of his modern-day life. It might all be bearable if he had someone to maneuver the cultural differences and minimal conveniences with—someone

This one was a little too short for my liking! It felt like everything was crammed in and then when I reached the end I was left wanting so much more. There were so few details and everything was so rushed, it was quite disappointing! I did enjoy the story nonetheless but my rating would be much higher if the story had felt more complete!

Another A+!!

as with all the books in this series it was great fun. catching up with old friends and all that. I must say that I do adore young Cooper. he seems to be the instigator/mischief maker of most the romances in this series. I'm holding out hope when the series gets to the end, we may be blessed with a story of grown Cooper falling in love. keep in mind this is a novella and not a full fleshed novel, so it's quick. However there are tons of familiar faces, Cooper related hijinx, and lots
I think this could have benefited from being a full length novel. Too much of the emotional development happens for the characters during time not written in the story. (This is especially true for Kathleen)

I really wanted more development for this novella and was just left saddened by the speed with which the story played out.

Love it , love it, love it.

Every book in this series is a delight to read
There is just the right blend of history, character development, suspense and romance. This was a very quick read as it is a novella. But that did not take away from the enjoyment. Begin with the first of the series.

I listened to the book on Audible.

I didn't want the story to end... I love Cooper trying to make his dad happy with a new wife. He is totally precocious and adorable. Jeffery deserves some happiness. Completely in Love with this series. I've read all the books and now enjoying the audio version. Lily Collingwood makes the characters come to life!

In Due Time

A great full in between novels. It answers questions that I didn't know if the author intended to dedicate an entire novel to.
Short but sweet, read this novella to fill in some gaps.

Another in the series but a novella which was okay... probably because all the same cast and crew were there.

Jeffrey's story

Cooper strikes again and I love him ! The little matchmaker along with Norma combine for a delightful story in this amazing saga.

Makes you want to read more

I'm ready to read book 5! Each book has a wonderful storyline, and at the end hooks you into needing to read on.

It’s Jeffery’s Turn!
Characters: Jeffrey Oaks & Kathleen Carter
Setting: US, Scotland (Past/Present)
Mature Themes: Sex

Recommendation: Cooper was a highlight for me in this series, and to see him back and causing trouble again was wonderful, add in his Aunt Jane and you’ve got a novella worth reading.

Jeffrey’s done everything for Grace and Cooper, but as Cooper watches his dad struggle to find love in the past, he calls in help from everyone’s favorite witch. Morna is back at it again. Setting

In Due Time is Jeffrey Oakes' story. Jeffrey has stayed in the 17th century for his adopted son Cooper. For a 20th century man, finding a woman to spend his life with is difficult especially among the 17th century women who prefer the sword welding Highlanders.

When Jeffrey returned to the 20th century with Cooper to visit Cooper's grandparents and Jane Mitchell, he meets Kathleen Carter. As usual, there is a bit of decision making on Jeffrey's part of being noble. This causes friction between Je

Again, the unrealistic way four year old Cooper is portrayed in this short novella really took away alot of my enjoyment at reading Jeffrey and Kathleen's story. I don't know, maybe four year olds like him actually do exist but I kind of just would like to see him act like a four year old, not a grown man. He's a child, he shouldn't have to act like an adult just to identify with them. He's super cute and extremely loyal, qualities I hope never abandon him.

Overall this was okay. Can't say I enjo
I've always enjoyed this series and was excited for this book and for Jeffery to get his happy ending. And I love, love Cooper. What a smart tenacious kid. I loved the last Novella in this series (the Christmas one) but I felt that this one overall didn't hold up quite as strong. It was a bit rushed and I felt that the end came too soon. I would have liked the time Jeffery and Cooper spent at Cooper's grandparents' home to be shorter and Ms. Claire could have then focused more time on building t ...more

Sweet Novella

It's Jeffrey's turn, and son Cooper is determined to see his dad happily married. When Coop and Jeffrey travel forward for a visit, Jeffrey meets Kathleen. In Due Time was a great way to spend time until Bethany Claire's next Morna's Legacy novel was published. Be sure to read the series in order. They build on each other.
