By 1895, the United States is in the 80th year of the isolation imposed by King Thomas I and upheld by his successors. But some are chafing under the shortages and restrictions, and when inventor Dr. Featherstone declares he has found a way to override all borders, there are those who applaud the discovery and those who fear it.

When Dr. Featherstone fails to return home for an important scientific gathering, his daughter Caroline enlists the help of the member of Parliament from Charlotte, Nathan Llewellen. As the two search for the kidnappers, Caroline is plunged into a world where travel to other realities is possible in the blink of an eye, and people can assume the forms of fearsome as well as familiar animals…and where love comes at the most unexpected times and places.

Nathan’s peculiar gift might cost Caroline her life, but she has already lost her heart.

    This was a fun story, and kept me interested. I’m not much for historical type stories, but this one has a little bit of twist, so I enjoyed it. There’s a little bit of a steampunk feel, and I liked the mystery/suspense in the story. There’s also a little bit of a sweet romance, but this book doesn’t really focus on that. Caroline’s inventor father goes missing, so she asks Nathan for help finding him. Nathan works for Parliament, and is having issues with the possibility that there are some nefarious characters involved in the Parliament. Another storyline is that there isn’t any trading happening with foreign entities, so that is causing some contention between the members. There’s also some dangerous men after Caroline because they are seeking information on her missing father. I liked Caroline’s feistiness, but she does lack some common sense. I liked her though, and the other characters were good too. Nathan has an unique magical ability, and there’s also some supernatural things going on with some other characters that added some fun to the story. I listened to the story, and the narrator was a good fit for this type of story. This story is sort of formal and proper, so her voice worked with it. I’d like to continue with the series, and read about the other adventures Caroline and Nathan get into. One more thing, why isn’t this on Goodreads! It’s not going towards my challenge, so sad!


    Very Creative Alternative Timeline Historical Romance!

    This is #01 in the A Question of… Trilogy Series.

    This series is listed by Sandy Bruney on Audible but other sites have it listed under Sandra Bruney.

    HFN with a continuing storyline.

    This is a SMC Series: (Same Main Couple/Character Series) A trilogy to be exact. The first one can be listened to as a standalone, but if you intend to continue the series I would recommend reading these in order.

    Content Advisory:
    This is very PG with no sex.

    This is a Historical Romance with an Alternative Timeline. There are Steampunk elements as well as Paranormal. It’s definitely not like anything I’ve listened to before, in the best way.

    Caroline Featherstone is the heroine of this trilogy, and she is a stubborn little thing for sure. Although its an alternative world, its still not far from the history we know. Women are still without many of the rights we have today, but she is determined to be more than she is allowed to be. This leads her into to many shady situations, especially when jumping blindly in trying to find her dad. Her brilliant yet ignorant father, has gone missing and there are those that are not above kidnapping her to get to him. Lucky for her, there are those that would protect her with their lives. These friends have many special skills that give them an advantage above mere mortals. I don’t want to ruin any of the surprises, but just know that this is a paranormal and that wolf on the cover is not a pet!

    Nathan Llewellen is our hero and he is more than meets the eye! He is a widower and a politician. Nate is heading the party to drop the border restrictions. He knows that if Caroline’s father truly did invent a way of communicating without wires, that it would upset the Status Quo of the last 80yrs. This should be a good thing, but there are those that greatly profit off the way things are now, that would kill to stay on top. There are paranormal secrets in Nathan’s closet, as well as those of his acquaintances.

    Pay attention to the clues!

    This title was originally published in late 2014, but is actually quite relevant to current political times. If you don’t follow politics, that’s OK too. This was a great ride, with lots of surprises! I was so much into the story that I missed one of the clues that should of been obvious to me. I still got it before it was revealed to me, but way after the point where I should of picked up on it. 😀 This is great for those that like paranormal romances, steampunk, historical romances, or clean romances. I personally like a little smutt in my reads/listens, but I still enjoyed this tale.

    Sandy/Sandra Bruney has created some great characters. The world building is very inventive. This is my first by her and I hope to listen to the rest of the series.

    This was not my first or last listen by Ashley Holt. Her character voices are great even though at times it can get a bit muddy when the dialog goes on for length and numerous peeps are talking. Overall you don’t notice much though because you will be too rapped up in the story.

    Normal speed was fine, however I listened at 0.90x. It is my personal preference.

    Audiobook obtained at my request and I am voluntarily leaving this unbiased review.
