Hill's 8th life ended in 1998 in an accident… and now that it had ended,
she remembered that all her other lives had ended the same way. After
this, she was not interested in trying life again. Apparently, the
"rules of incarnation" said she had 95 years to live; so she had to go.
But this time, she made a deal with the "Resettlement Committee" --- she
was NOT going through childhood again --- she would have health, wealth,
and because her last 8 lives ended when she fell in love --- no love!
woke in the body of Nora Wilding . OK, she could live with the name
- her favorite novelist was named Nora, but she had been tricked!
She had expected to go on… not back to 1875! No cars… no restraunts…
no toilet! Although technically, they did not lie, she wondered what
else the "Resettlement Committee" forgot to tell her. She is
now the owner of a ranch with irritating Seth Murdoch as her foreman and
handsome Richard Bonner claiming to be her fiancée. As much
as she tries to resist, Nora finds herself falling in love with Seth… the
reincarnation of her past loves. Will the battles between the
2 men bring an end to this life, too?
that they would now have to adapt to the new Nora, the conflicts begin.
There are many humorous scenes and dialogs as things change in Nora and
in those around her. As the story unfolds, there is an element of
suspense along with the humor, which kept the story interesting.
There are brief flashes to her past lives, which help her understand this
life, and add to the plot. The epilog and the Author's Note at the
end "tweaked" my funny bone and gave a grin with the HEA.
though Reincarnation is not my favorite Paranormal theme, the time travel
and the author's humor and wit bring a strong entertainment value to this
story. I would recommend this as a good vacation/ beach read.
