Isabeau Munier is a witch that in 1692 was going to be burned at the stake so she cast a spell to escape the fire but while she escaped she ends up cursed. The curse has trapped Isabeau to forever remain in Lobster Cove with each time she’s tried to cross the town line she gets sent to a new time but the same town. Over the years Isabeau became friends with Grayson Wright’s uncle who knew her secret but now that he has passed away Grayson has come to town to finalize his affairs. Isabeau and Grayson find themselves attracted to one another but will Grayson ever believe the secret that holds her in this small town? Echoes of the Past is mostly a romance read with a touch of the time travel and witch aspect to it. I would have liked to have seen more of those but with this being novella length I can understand why there wasn’t more expansion to the story. It took me a while to warm up to the romance side of the read while I was hoping to touch on the witchcraft and time travel but after it got going I found myself still enjoying this book and the characters. I think fans of romance will probably enjoy this romance novella with a bit of a twist. I received a copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I received this book from net gallery for an honest review. In 1692 Isabeau was going to be burnt at the stake until she cast a spell which saved her life but took her forward in time. The curse has trapped her in Lobster Cove: if she tries to leave the town lines, she gets sent into a different time. Isabeau meets Stan when she finds herself in the twentieth century. He helps her find a job and home and they become good friends. However, when he dies his nephew Grayson, makes an unexpected visit to her shop. Will Grayson believe the rumours about Isabeau being a gold digger? Will Isabeau's ever be free of the curse that keeps her trapped in Lobster Cove? This was a short, romance book with a small aspect of time travel and witchcraft. This was an enjoyable read and I liked the characters. I loved Havoc - his bond with Isabeau was definitely unique and sweet.
Awesome read! Unlike anything else i've read! Great characters on top of a story that hooks you right from the beginning! 100% recommend!

There is a secret there and he wants to find out what it is. Isabeau can't tell anyone as who is going to believe her crazy story, Stanley did and he looked after her for many years. Will Grayson believe her or will she lose him for good as her old friend is back and she wants her to pay for the pain that Isabeau caused. Will love win this time or will she be stuck back in time where they tried to burn her for being a witch? A great story never a boring moment.
