Title: Forward in Time With Jelly Beans

Author: Michelle Godard-Richer

Genre: Time Travel Romance


Book Blurb:


In 1932, Henrietta Hinchcliffe graduates from medical school and jumps on the opportunity to reopen a clinic with Dr. Iain Carter. After realizing her dream, Henrietta should feel fulfilled, but she longs for more--the kind of soul deep love her brother and parents found. Fate intervenes when a magic box of jelly beans whisks her away to the future. Soon after arriving, she discovers her unborn nephew will die in 1932 if she can’t find a way to save him. To complicate matters, the answers she seeks may lie with a handsome doctor named Joshua Bingham.


My Review:


Most of the time, time travel goes back in time. But in Forward in Time With Jelly Beans, our heroine is thrust forward in time and sees first-hand what the future holds. I truly loved this story. It’s original and features a woman doctor ahead of her time. The world-building is creative yet realistic. The sweet romance will capture readers’ hearts. Plus, there’s a bit of suspense. Will Henrietta get back in time to save her nephew?


Wow, what a brilliant story. It took my breath away and stole my heart. The premise unfolds at a nice easy pace. The world-building is the framework of this story and it’s excellent. Michelle Godard-Richer creates two worlds that intersect thanks to a magical jelly bean box. The time travel is believable yet not too scientific. Terrific world-building.


For me, this book is all about Henrietta. She’s a fabulous heroine who’s smart, caring, and a talented doctor. She thinks fast on her feet and adjusts to modern times with ease. She deserves love yet is unsure when it stares her in the face.


The romance is wholesome and heartfelt. I enjoyed how it didn’t overtake the rest of the plot. It’s a bit of a slow-burn but fits for a time travel.


If you’re looking for a romance through time, pick up Forward in Time With Jelly Beans. Another gem written by Michelle Godard-Richer. I look forward to reading more from her.
