    I was suffering a book hangover when a friend suggested I read this next. I wasn’t really sure in the beginning, because like others, I found the two roommates very annoying and frustrating in the beginning of the book. My friend urged me to read on and I’m so glad I did! I’m now suffering from a new book hangover and I can’t wait to read the next one in the series.

    I originally thought it might be similar to an advice column, but I was wrong, and it is SO much better. I am not one to give away things in my review, but if you are a fan of time travel novels read past the beginning frustration and immerse yourself in the fascinating world that Ms. Liebig has created.

    I felt that Daniela Acitelli did an excellent job narrating the book, especially with the different accents for eras which likely do not come naturally. Switching on a dime between current colloquial language to that of the early 1900s could not have been easy. Not only does she pull it off but the skill with which she does leads to some additional hilarity as well.

    I can’t wait to start the next one and I may even reread this one again before I do.

    I was provided with a free copy of this audio book for my honest review. The views expressed here are entirely my own.

    Dear Maude by Denise Liebig is book one in The Dear Maude Trilogy that I listened to on audio narrated by Daniela Acitelli. This is the first book by Denise that I have read/listened to and it definitely won’t be my last. I was not really into the start of the book but I was glad I pushed through because it got better after the initial ground work was laid on how Emily ended up time traveling and falling in love. This was a great twist on a Time Travel Romance. Daniela did a good job narrating. I did find the reading a bit slow so I did listen at 1.25 – 1.5 speed and it was still easy to keep up with the storyline. I feel the book ended in a way that it could stand as standalone. But I am looking forward to reading book two For The Love Of Maude to get the next chapters of Emily and Dell’s love story. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Time Travel Romances.

    If you’re thinking The Chronicles of St Mary’s Series, don’t! This starts slow and stays that way, but at least when it finally get going it’s pretty good. Emily, the key protagonist, is very immature for a recent college graduate. When recruited by an evil-thinking time travel company, she takes an inordinate amount of time to get a clue. Turns out there’s a competing “good” time travel organization that comes to her rescue. Mayhem and romance ensue through the end of this first book.
