Hey guys, there are three blog tour posts today.
Because I’m an idiot and don’t always remember the tours I sign up for, or apparently the dates for them.
Anyway this first one up is one for part of ‘The Write Reads’ as they’re doing another ultimate blog tour!
Keith Nolan falls in love with a remarkable young woman from the past, talking to him on a home video she recorded in 1989. To keep their conversation going, he must find more of her tapes—while forces work against them both, and time is running out.
I always love when I can include a book trailer, it’s the inner youtube fanatic in me really shining.
Anyway, this is a sweet little novella that was a nice light read. I mean light enough, if you don’t mind a bit of heartbreak along the way!
The foremost definition of short but sweet!
Keith was a nice protagonist, there was no secret darkness to him, he was well rounded, and I enjoyed that he wasn’t some dark and broody character.
On the same token, I really enjoyed Lindsey, she was a down to earth girl and had some of the best taste in music! [The 80s are calling me now, haha]
While I found it sweet, I wasn’t a fan of the insta-love feel, but I do admit that the way Hill played everything out made it balance out well enough in my opinion.
Keith and Lindsey are brought together through some logic defying home made tapes from the 80s, Lindsey’s video diary, in which two way communication is somehow possible.
I thought the pacing was great, and enjoyed the switching from between Keith and Lindsey, I just didn’t believe in their love story, but you know what? It was a nice read and it was something that was just perfect to read when you have a couple of hours of your day free and aren’t looking for books with heady and slow paced plots.
I actually enjoyed Hill’s descriptions, they were great at giving you imagery without wasting pages in his novella. Overall, I enjoyed this, and if you’re into a bit of love at first sight and time travel, this book is definitely for you!
Thank you to The Write Reads tour and the publisher and author for a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review!

The Rest of the Tour
One reply on “A Different Time – Blog Tour”
Great review, Haley! I agree about the insta-love and that was really the main flaw for me in this book but it’s really a personal preference since I know a lot of others loved the romance. It was definitely an interesting concept, I just wished that the story could have had more character development to be more believable for me. Still, it was a nice sweet read and a good length novella!
