Today I’m very pleased to be posting my review of Storm at Keizer Manor, the debut novel by Ramcy Diek.
About the book:
A Historical Time Travel Romance:
While her boyfriend Forrest goes to college, quick witted Annet works at the Keizer Manor where the oils from 19th century master painter Alexander Keizer are exhibited.
After a fight, the couple strolls through the dunes to patch up. When dark clouds roll in, the beautiful sunny weather turns into a thunderstorm so violent that they get separated.
The next morning, Forrest finds himself alone. So does Annet.
Regaining consciousness in a monastery, Annet is convinced the nuns are playing a prank on her. It can’t be the 1800’s! She’s a pregnant Twenty-first Century woman and doesn’t belong there. But how will she get back to her own time?
About the author:
Thirty years ago, Ramcy Diek fell in love with the United States, and moved from the Netherlands to the Pacific Northwest where she now lives with her husband. They are both self-employed and work in the tourism industry, giving Ramcy ample opportunity in the winter to indulge in her favorite pastime: reading and writing.
Storm at Keizer Manor by Ramcy Diek is a fabulous debut novel that I thoroughly enjoyed.
I’m a sucker for a time travel novel and this one did not disappoint. It has everything you could possibly want, from a heroine who is misplaced in time to romance, peril and mystery. Add a paranormal twist to the tale and you have a story that takes you on a rollercoaster of a ride, twisting and turning along the way.
The story is told from the alternating view points of Annet, a 21st century woman who finds herself flung back into the 19th century, and Forrest, her boyfriend who is searching for her in the present day.
I enjoyed this book a great deal and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good time travel story that will keep you enthralled until the final page has been turned. A lovely read.
Thank you to TBC and the publisher for giving me the opportunity to read an ARC of this entertaining and well written book.
