[Catherine Chant] ì Wishing You Were Here [contemporary-romance PDF] Ebook Epub Download ì I recieved this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. This book was a delight to read, and drew me in from the beginning, even though a few times I was wondering were the plot was headed This story starts off in 1956, by introducing us to Joey Tempo He was the newest singing sensation to hit Memphis, but within twelve months of being discovered, was killed in a plane crash back to the United States from London. Now, fifty years later in the present, we have Callie While looking in her grandmother s attic for 50 s memorabilia for a theme party, she discovers Joey s first album, and she finds herself being drawn into his tragic story, and wanting to change his fate While listening to his record she is transported back to 1957 where she thinks she is there to save him from the plane crash, especially since she ends up in the air I was sent a copy of Wishing You Were Here by Catherine Chant from the author in exchange for an honest review. My kind of time travel The concept of time travel is something that intrigues me, but I admit that I am quite picky with the books I read that focuses on this idea I am not a big fan of science fiction or fantasy, so technical time travel having to do with time machines and the like don t really appeal to me However I do like it when it involves a fate based storyline, like Wishing You Were Here has As a music lover myself, the idea of an Elvis Pressley style character also really caught my attention. 50 s charm Set in a small American town of Shelby Falls, Chant paints a picture of a typical 1950 s era setting Complete with the small town support, drugstore diners and ice cream shops Think Grease While ot Callie Reinhard is listening to an old record of Joey Tempo s, a famous singer from the 1950s who died in a tragic plane accident flying from England to the US, in the US when she falls asleep, only to wake up at London s Heathrow Airport in 1957 where she learns she has been sent to make things right After she manages to convince Joey to change his flight, much to the annoyance of Joey s manager, she ends up moving to the south to work for his record label Joey s fiancee lives there, too The Callie tries to help make things right, the worse things go and the attracted to him she is. While romance is not my normal cup of tea, Chant writes well She has clearly done her homework on the historical and musical aspects of the 1950s One of the best y a romance genre novels I have ever read.
3. 5 starsTime travel and also reincarnation is not my favorite story I feel it is a little bit tricky than other stories It s because the authors have to have a good reason to cause their characters to time traveling Thus they also have to provide the logic in it If the characters can do it how they are going to back to where they belong, what happen with their life if they change the past, whether they can carry on things when they time traveling and other stuff like that If the authors fail to intertwine those questions with logical explanation and cannot be related to the story then it failed me In the other hand, the idea fascinated me so I will always up for time travel story I even have one stand nicely on my favorite book 3. 5 StarsI ve been struggling with my review of this book since I completed my read I received the book as a read to review and overall, I am glad I did It s a good book, one of those that sticks with you when you re not reading it I enjoyed the premise The author has a great writing style, not too weighted or wordy, yet immersive pictures are conveyed with great ease The characters are well rounded and mostly believable I loved the book in so many ways, but here is why I ve been struggling the book desperately needs a solid edit I m not a stickler for perfection in books Typos happen things get missed That s the nature of reading and editing Every person will catch something different But in the case of this book, errors are glaring Missing I got a free copy of the book from the author, in exchange for an honest review 4. 25 starsShe s out of place.

Wish You Were Here is a book where you can t stop reading, your heart pounds in time with the characters in the book, the writing style just drags you into the story and in the end, you can t help but fall in love with the book. I love the time travelling theme in the story and the beautiful love story between Callie and Joey Tempo. When I said love story , I meant there s a lot of pain, anguish, slight jealousy and the ups and downs of a relationship The way Catherine Chant wrote the story really really really pulls me in and made me feel whatever the main character is feeling. For me, that is one of the few elements of a really awesome book. The story is unforgettable and the characters are likable When I first read the synopsis, I was immediately p She S Out Of PlaceHe S Out Of TimeIn , Joey Tempo Was The Biggest Sensation To Hit Memphis Since Elvis Presley Within Twelve Months He Was Gone Killed In A Transatlantic Plane CrashHalf A Century Later, Callie Reinard Is Headed For College And Her Dream Career In Radio Broadcasting When She Discovers Joey S Iconic First Album, She S Mysteriously Drawn To His Tragic Story A Profound Desire To Change His Fate Invokes A Mystical Force That Sends Her Back To To Make Things Right What Callie Doesn T Expect Is Her Meddling To Make Everything Worse Much Worse Joey May Be Glad To Be Alive, But Not Everyone Welcomes Her Presence Especially Not Joey S Glamorous Fianc E, Who Has Her Own Plans For His FutureEvery Second Callie Spends In The Past She S Altering Much Than Joey S Fate She S Changing The Lives Of Everyone Around Her And She S Growing Closer To Joey By The MinuteIf Callie Can T Find A Way Back To Her Own Time Soon, She May Lose Than A College Education And The Career She S Always Wanted She May Lose Her Heart To A Boy She Can T Have I missed the fact that this was YA book when I bought it and boy was I glad The book had me hooked from the start and was gutted that I had to put it down at 1 in the morning to sleep I good length book with a brilliant story I am looking forward to reading by this author I recommend this book to anyone who loves YA books and to everyone else there is no naughty bits and I would let my daughter who is 16 read this There is a love story in the book and just a fabulous read. 4. 8 stars rounded to 5 on my Goodreads list see review at mamabookasaurus. blogspot. com I picked up my iPad at 1pm yesterday and read through my son s nap At the bus stop picking up my daughter and waiting at the pharmacy on my other son s medicine my eyes were glued to the pages Reluctantly, I put it down when I had to stop to make kids dinner, change diapers, fill sippy cups, review homework, give said medicine and tuck them in for the night Then I read non stop till 12 30am And I am sitting here writing my review now instead of getting much needed sleep because it was Just That Good. You all know I am a sucker for time travel novels This one was superb It was back and forth time continuum craziness Chant wrapped me up tighter than a newborn in a swaddle with her fascinating take on what could happen if you went back in
