Remember last spring when I was super stoked about a time travel romance called The River of No Return by Bee Ridgway? You don’t remember? Well, click HERE. I’ll wait. You’re back? Good. You’ll now understand my excitement when I received an email last week from the publisher tipping me off to the release of the PREQUEL to The River of No Return, The Time Tutor. Prequel, sequel, I mean, who can really tell when you spend your time hopping around through time, you know? Now, I’ve yet to read The Time Tutor (as I’ve naturally over-committed myself to reading ALL THE BOOKS) but I’m really excited to tackle it soon.
Why am I writing this post on a book I haven’t read yet? Only because I want to share FREE STUFF with you! The folks at Plume Books/Penguin Random House have graciously offered a copy of the newly-available-in-paperback The River of No Return to one of YOU lucky readers. Enter the giveaway below! *UPDATE* I forgot to mention that this giveaway is for residents of the US and Canada only, by publisher’s request. As in, the publisher is mailing it out and probably dislikes international shipping charges as much as I do.
I saw a review of this one the other day and it looks great! I can’t wait to read it – it’s going to be a difficult decision trying to figure out what to buy next when I get paid on Friday!
I understand your excitement for a new book you know you’ll love 🙂
I suppose the giveaway is only for the US, so good luck to every one!!
I couldn’t resist Tudor England despite the danger; what a fascinating period for larger-than-life personalities and historical change!
Sounds like a great book! Will have to add it to the looong list!
As for a time I would like to visit, perhaps 60s/70s America so that I could participate in and experience such social change during the civil rights movement. Such interesting times, not too long ago, that we seem to be so far from in some ways already.
Thanks for the giveaway 🙂

Fun! I didn’t know The Time Tutor even existed!

Oh, right, and for going back in time: Hmmm. Really really tough call. I like this time quite a bit. Could I travel in space as well as time? I think I’d keep it small — maybe go back in time and meet my great-grandfather. I don’t think he’d freak out, and we could have some awesome conversations about adventure novels.
(Going back in time to meet someone from History that I want to meet seems fraught with peril — it’d be amazing to meet Oscar Wilde, but who even knows if he’d be willing to talk to me? And then it’d be a trip wasted.)
I suppose if I was going to go back in time, I would do something totally sappy and visit my Dad since he’s not with us anymore. I feel like he would be okay with meeting my future self, and I don’t think it would blow too much of a whole in the space/time continuum.
One day, I shall win one of your giveaways.
If I could go back in time I would go back about 13 or 14 years and have my twin toddler boys back again for just a little while. Back when they thought I was the greatest thing ever.

OMG I LOVE THOSE COVERS. So beautiful!!!
I have always wanted to go back in time to visit the WWII era. I am so interested in that time period.
I would love to go to the 1920s – similar to the movie Midnight in Paris. Such a cool time.

This has been on my wishlist since it was published last year, but I have yet to get myself a copy. I think I would travel back to the early 1980’s for the music scene in the U.K. I’m an 80’s baby so missed out on some awesome music (maybe I only think it is awesome from being forced to listen to it by my parents but still!).
I would love to win!
I would love to win! If I could go back in time, I would go back to meet my parents and grandparents as children.
You had me at time travel, which tends to be the only form of romance I can take. That and quirky romances.
Sounds like a great new paperback. I’d love to win a copy. If I could travel in time I’d go back to the 60s. Peace, love, and good vibes y’all!!
There are so many places that would be cool to visit, but I’d miss modern conveniences too much (and I don’t mean like my phone, I mean like toilets). But ignoring practical concerns like that, I’d want to go back and see the Library of Alexandria before it was destroyed. That would be awesome… in the truest sense of the word.
This is weird but I would like to go back to the early 1900’s to be a part of my family then. I love hearing stories of who my great-grandparents were and a lot of what they did has made who my family is now so I would love to be able to experience it first hand with them. I would also time travel with Claire in the Outlander books just so I could swoon over Jamie in real life.
I have heard nothing but good things about The River of No Return and really need to get around to reading it.
Omg I loved The River of No Return! It was one of my favorite books of 2013!!
I’m loving the whole time travel concept these days and it sounds like a great book. I’m also loving those book covers. Beautiful!
I’m loving the whole time travel concept these days and it sounds like a great book. I’m also loving those book covers. Beautiful! I’m a sucker for history and medieval England is a favorite…with the Tudor era close as well. Would love traveling to those times.
Sounds like this would be right up my alley! I am putting it on “the list” now.
I’d definitely go back to the ’20s!

If I could go back in time, I think 1913 would be awesome… I’d want to be AT the premiere of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring!

I really wanted to read this back when it first came out but missed it, but MAN can I just say I probably would have done anything to get my paws on it had this been the hardback cover?? I’m in lovvvveeee.

Tough question! I’d love to visit ancient Rome, Greece or Egypt, but it might be better to visit the US in the 1920’s. I was reading a book in that setting, which seemed interesting and also seemed like a pretty decent time for women’s rights.
I’d go back to when my son was a baby & really enjoy those years. They just flew by.
I’d return to the summer of 1993 in order to myself a do-over. I wouldn’t accept the date invitation from the guy who would become my husband and eventually EX-husband. Boy, oh boy, would things now be markedly different.
