    Supremely dull from the first to last page populated with unlikable characters and a complete waste of my time

    Corlis McCullough and King Duvallon have a history and it isn't a good one but bygones can be bygones when the journalist and professor find a common cause the preservation of old New Orleans Corlis didn't expect to have such a visceral reaction to the old buildings but her ancestor was intimately involved with their history and scents take the 20th Century Corlis back 150 years in time to experience what happened How free people of color owned these buildings and how that came to be Corlis never knows what scent and what place will impact her and she is sure that King will think she's crazy Plus she's a journalist and she's supposed to be completely objective but in New Orleans where everyone seems to be a distant cousin of everyone else black or white and doing things under the table is a fact of life it may be the standing in front of bulldozers is the only way to save the historic buildings It was an intricate story but I was mostly bored I wasn't crazy about the story in the past and I didn't like the Corlis of the present though I can't explain why I have the second book but I am going to take a break for a while

    This is a book with that extra something it is not about reincarnation but instead the main character Corlis smells things and sees things from the past We do get an explanation to why this happen why things that happened were so strong that they left a trace It's New Awlins sugar things are strange thereCorlis is a non nonsense reporter She loves to get a good story but that usually lands her in trouble because who would know that the person in the story was related to the guy owning the news station So she changes job a lot But I like her integrity It's all about the storyThe book is about the past and the present Corlis follows the news that is King Duvallon as he tries to save old buildings from getting torn down and something fishy is going on behind the scenes The guy who wants to build new things is not a good guy And of course there are sparks between Corlis and King The second part is about the things Corlis sees Back in the early 1800th century her ancestor lived in New Orleans A lot was going on there and a lot of the people she meets in this book she also meets back then their ancestors that is It all has to do with a building that they now want to tear down So we see old Corlis in her unhappy relationship We learn that 45 % of the black people were free people of color in New Orleans How daughters of mixed unions were brought up to become high class courtesans Everything connects What is really helpful is the chart at the beginning of the book How everyone now was related to the people back thenThe book changes now and then Corlis chapters and then old Corlis chaptersOk that sounds like there are a lot going on but it's not a bad thing You get into the story at once and there is no problem following it I was really fascinated by the old story and I certainly did not know this about old New Orleans It was a really interesting part of its historyWare knows how to mix her history and present and she does it so wellConclusionAn interesting book about a truly fascinating city and a rich cast of characters

    I am having a very difficult time reviewing this book I am from New Orleans which is why I picked it up I have worked on Julia St and am very familiar with all the places the author describes in this book I also remember many fights over preserving historic buildings in New Orleans which forms the back bone of this story It's a fascinating premise for a book and it's also a time slip story which I love Corliss is a reporter who keeps getting fired because she's a little too zealous in her job She moves to New Orleans and promptly gets fired again for showing a little too much reality at a society wedding While there she meets up with King Duvallon a a man she had run in with at college But here they begin to discover they have a cause in common While reseaching some buildings she slips back in time and relives the history of the buildings I love this part of the story and I enjoy the present day story as well My main problem with the story is that sometimes it comes off a little flat and awkward The details about New Orleans and it's history are pitch perfect but they aren't always introduced in a seamless way But other than that a really enjoyable story

    This is another of those books that I probably wouldn't have picked up if it hadn't been on sale and had a lovely cover which doesn't match the book at all I know I'm not supposed to judge books by their covers but sometimes they do catch my eye and the synopsis sounds good But at 475 pages I think this might be the longest contemporary romance novel I've read and I just don't like them that muchI know it was also about historical preservation in New Orleans and there were flashbacks to a previous time period something that either works or it doesn't Unfortunately the time slip aspect was choppy and it took forever for the earlier timeline to capture my interest On top of that the modern reporter storyline felt exactly like a romance novel even though it was also heavily invested in a battle over some historic buildings Sometimes I'll read this kind of romance for a change of pace but I expect them to be uick especially if they're in contemporary settings This one dragged on until the last hundred pages when I did finally get interested in the whole preservation showdown It just took too long to get there

    Bah Not much here to interest me in reading further I don't care for the present day charactersstory and I didn't find much in the past storyline either things were just silly as were the character's names I do like Ware's historical novels but this is the second time slip of hers that I've bailed on


  7. says:

    Ehhh okay read There were times I found myself interested in it but overall it was too long for what the plot had to offer Really had a hard time getting through the first 150 pages


  8. says:

    Overlong and the psychic time traveling back to the 1800s just didn't ring true for me


  9. says:

    The story seems very interesting but the writing is stilted and the high number of words italicized for emphasis is driving me crazy


  10. says:

    I've read other Ciji Ware books that I enjoyed much The main character in this book got on my nerves I've never found the trying to be a chareer woman but constantly shooting myself in the foot with obviously poor decisions type character appealing
