    1. This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.This was a fun book. I am kind of partial to time travel romances. I guess I like the idea of imagining what it would be like to suddenly be thrust into an entirely unknown situation and trying to figure out what to do. I was really in the mood to read a time travel romance so I decided to pick up this book and I am glad that I did.This is the third book in the Mists of Fate series and it read just fine as a stand alone even though I [...]

    4. This still is NOT Reilly's story!!! Ms. Scanlon, what are you waiting for??? ;)This is Colin's story and is actually a PG-7 one. LOLYou'll not believe me, but there's just 2 kisses!!! O_OBeside the lack of hot action, this is actually a very nice book about time travel. :)The action in this book is mostly in present time and revolves around Colin's matchmaking enterprise Celtic Connection where the heroine is (almost) forced by her aunt to find the perfect man. At the same time Colin is blackmai [...]

    5. a wonderful mix of staid modernism and fanciful notionsI would like to thank Nancy Scanlon, Diversion Books, and NetGalley for allowing me to read an ARC in exchange for an honest review.Colin O’Rourke aims to expand his matchmaking business to the UK, but Miss Winifred Emsworth, a popular gossip columnist, is not a fan. She holds a lot of sway with the public, and Colin needs her endorsement to be successful. He asks what he can do to convince her his company is as great as he purports—and [...]

    7. This could have been a much better book with a different narrator. Every word she read was way to “bubbly.” It didn’t matter how serious the subject was the narrator was happy and bubbly. And her men’s voices were terrible, since they sounded just like women.It was a decent storyline and mostly I enjoyed it. Even though the time travel didn’t happen until about 60%, so that was somewhat of a bummer. Colin was a time traveling “protector” and Ellie and Gwen stumbled on the path in t [...]

    8. Disappointed about the ending. Too abrupt as if the author was near her deadline and decided to just come up with a last minute ending idea. No epilogue to make up for it. Hate how indecisive the hero is. He rejects the heroine multiple times due to some things that are out of his control and then after a pep talk fr his mom ( which was not that great imo), he decided that he can be with the heroine. Hello, what happened to all the various reasons you cannot be together in the first place? I did [...]

    9. Love, againNancy Scanlon did it again. She made me fall in love with such wonderful people. Mists of Fate is an enjoyable page turning delight. All three books are well written and so easy to read; hard to put down. Thanks Nancy, can't wait for your next book.

    11. A gripping story of two people who find true love. She is a book store owner in London, he is a business owner in Boston. Question is, where are they going to live?

    12.

    13. A time-traveling romance novel that's part of the Mists of Fate Series (this one is Book 3). This work can easily be read as a stand-alone book. I have not read the other novels in the series, but after reading this one, I plan to go back and read them. A family of hunky Irish time-travelers who also happens to own a matchmaking business. The MCs are captivating in a quiet way, the supporting characters are heartwarming, the settings are well-designed, and the plot is adorable and fun. The story [...]

    14. I received this book in exchange for an honest review. I loved reading about Colin and Eleanor who feel a connection from the beginning but can't reveal their feelings right away due to meddling family, work and the fact that Colin is a Guardian who can time travel to save the family line whenever it is in danger.Eleanor is mostly content with owning a bookstore, reading anything she can get her hands on and spending time with her aunt Winifred Emsworth who is a famous journalist who raised her [...]
