Title: Back in Time with Jelly Beans


Author: Michelle Godard-Richer


Genre: Historical/Time Travel Romance


Book Blurb:


Fueled by curiosity, and her dream of becoming a big-time journalist, Bella Thomas digs deep into the history of her small town. Mayflower thrived until the local Jelly Bean factory burned to the ground in 1927, killing handsome founder, Henry Hinchcliffe, and devastating the economy.

In a twist of fate, instead of Bella finding the past, she's snatched out of the present and transported to the factory a year before the fire. There she is rescued by the sweet and swoon-worthy Henry.

Bella can’t stop herself from falling for him even though he’s destined to marry another and suffer a tragic fate. Without any regard for her own happiness, Bella is determined to prevent the fire and save Henry. Even if he can never be hers.


Editorial Reviews:


I read this book in one sitting and that's solely because I fell in love with Bella, the modern-day heroine of Back in Time With Jelly Beans. She's returned to her hometown and wants to unravel the mystery of the jelly bean factory fire of 1927. When she's thrust into the past, her quick-thinking allows her to assimilate to the roaring 20s. She's a wonderful heroine and I loved reading her descriptive narration is noteworthy. It's immersive and historically accurate. The research this author accomplished and wove into the narration is so well done. I completely forgot where I was and became a part of the story.If you love Outlander, you're going to love Back in Time With Jelly Beans. Your heart will soar, as mine did. I can't wait for more from this author. This is a must-read book for the summer. A perfect beach read." N. N. Light's Book Heaven

"This time travel story was well crafted with an interesting plot and characters. The storyline contains a good tale of intrigue. How will Bella return home, can she save Henry, and who is the mysterious woman in the photo? Bella and Henry are a sweet and fun couple. The historical setting was written with good visuals. This author has a talented voice for weaving a light mystery into romance. There is a surprising twist at the end, hinting at the possibility of another book, which I look forward to reading."
