  • Florida homicide detective Brianna Breeze can't seem to catch a man unless she handcuffs him. So her best friend decides to take matters into her own hands and tricks Brianna into seeing the Love Gypsy, a time traveler's friend noted for her extraordinary matchmaking skills.

    When a tall, muscular man wearing jeans, a black leather jacket, and slicked-back 50s hair bursts in on her first visit, Brianna is bewitched. Despite the gypsy's warning not to get involved with him, Brianna can't get him out of her mind—even though she, more than anyone, knows the pitfalls of romancing a stranger.

    A present-day murder, a mysterious vintage car registered in the distant past, and a smoking gun complicate the puzzle. Brianna doesn't know if her lover from the past is a murderer or a savior, but she's willing to risk time travel to find out.

    Excerpt:

    I giggled and glanced up at him, hoping he would think I was either joking or making a bold pass. “Well, I have a personal policy not to let a man I don’t know into my car without a pat down.”

    I reached over and put both hands around his waist.

    Dom laughed. “Wow. You really take your job seriously. This must really put a damper on your love life. Okay, Detective Breeze. I’m at your disposal.” He raised his arms in the air. “Pat away, pretty lady. I think I might even like this.”

    I patted away, feeling his muscular legs and solid torso. He was clean. “You’re good to go. Come on. Get in.” I opened the passenger door.

    “How could any guy turn down an invite like this? I’m curious to see what happens next.” Dom closed the door. “I want to assure you, my mother raised me right. I’m a perfect gentleman, far from those perps you must meet at work. Can’t blame you for being careful.”

    “Really? A gentleman? So say we went back to my place, we’d watch TV?”

    “Yeah, sure, and talk.”

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When I first picked up The Love Gypsy, I knew I was in for a treat. How could the novel not be thrilling with a gypsy fortune teller, time travel, cops and criminals? To me, that is a perfect mix for a delightfully fun story. The novel is a great length, an easy read in one sitting, although it could easily have been longer. The characters are charming and their dilemmas are heartwarming and heartbreaking both. I would recommend this novel to readers seeking a heartwarming romance with just the right dose of adventure to create a grand storyline. I also believe this novel would be a great launching point for a series of stories about The Love Gypsy. Readers will love this novel as much as I did.

Detective Brianna Breeze is stunned when her best friend Tessa drops her, rather unceremoniously, off at the residence of the most well known love gypsy in their small town. Brianna is noticeably suspicious, but decides to take a chance and see what happens. When a gorgeous stranger named Dom suddenly sweeps into the Love Gypsy’s residence and Brianna’s life, Brianna knows nothing will ever be the same. Who is Dom? When dead bodies and gunfights begin appearing with a suspect eerily similar to Dom, Brianna isn’t quote sure what to do. Can they ever find a way to overcome their individual trials and finally be together? Make a visit to The Love Gypsy and see what unfolds.
