“Time travel romance at its best!”—Fresh Fiction on Chance of a Lifetime

They can’t be together, but they can’t stay apart…

Liam O’Connor has one purpose in this life—to push the woman he loves into the arms of another man. The Irish rogue unknowingly changed the course of destiny when he fell in love with Cora McLeod over a century ago. Their passion was intense, brief and tragic. And the angels have been trying to restore the balance of fate ever since.

Now police officers in Providence Falls, North Carolina, Liam and Cora are partners on a murder investigation. The intensity of the case has drawn them closer together—exactly what Liam is supposed to avoid. The angels have made it clear Cora must be with Finley Walsh. But headstrong Cora makes her own decisions and she’s starting to have feelings for Liam—the only thing he’s ever really wanted.

Liam knows this is the last chance to save his soul. But does he love Cora enough to let her go?

An Impossible Promise by Jude Deveraux picks up not long after Chance of a Lifetime ended. It is best to read this series in order. I thought the book was well-written with developed characters. Liam is a delightful and handsome Irish rogue. Jude Deveraux is great at creating this type of character. Cora is a smart, feisty, independent, and a strong woman who has bad taste in men (she picks the wrong men to date). This is a dual timeline novel with chapters taking us back to Ireland in 1844 when Liam stole Cora away from Finn. Liam has two months left to make things right and save his soul. Cora cares for Finn but she has growing feelings for Liam. Liam and Cora are trying to solve the John Brady case when another murder occurs in Providence Falls. I thought the mystery was well-done. It is well-plotted with unique twists along the way. There is suspense and misdirection. You wonder who is telling the truth and who is lying through their teeth. I like the humor in the story. Liam encounters new items, terms, and situations that add levity to the tale. As with Chance of a Lifetime, we are left with unanswered questions at the end of An Impossible Promise. We must wait for the third and final Providence Falls novel to see how things turn out.
