Synopsis: In one century she loved him madly, and in another she wants nothing to do with himIn 1844 Ireland, Liam O’Connor, a rogue and a thief, fell madly in love with a squire’s daughter and unwittingly altered the future. Shy and naive Cora McLeod thought Liam was the answer to her prayers. But the angels disagreed and they’ve been waiting for the right moment in time to step in.
Now Liam finds himself reunited with his beloved Cora in Providence Falls, North Carolina. The angels have given Liam a task. He must make sure Cora falls in love with another man—the one she was supposed to marry before Liam interfered. But this Cora is very different from the innocent girl who fell for Liam in the past. She’s a cop and has a confidence and independence he wasn’t expecting. She doesn’t remember Liam or their past lives, nor is she impressed with his attempts to guide her in any way.
Liam wants Cora for himself, but with his soul hanging in the balance, he must choose between a stolen moment in time or an eternity of damnation. (Synopsis from Goodreads)
My Thoughts: I really liked the idea for Chance of a Lifetime, it definitely caught my attention. This book has two timelines, plus a story of multiple lives. I really enjoyed the part of this book set in 1844 Ireland. The historical setting was my favorite of the book by far. We get to see Cora and Liam meet, fall in love, and then mess up the time continuum.
The book then gets a little strange. There's heaven, angels, and Liam being sent forward in time to fix the mistakes he made in the past. It was definitely an interesting read.
I really did enjoy Cora and Liam as characters though. They were going through all these crazy things, but I did want them to be happy together.
This book was different, but I did enjoy it. I appreciate a book that takes a concept and runs with it. If you're looking for something fun, I'd recommend it.
