    3.5 Stars When Joe first sees Nora standing in Grand Central Station, she has no suitcase, or coat even though it was early in the December morning of 1937, barely dawn. She seemed completely out of place, and her clothing seemed from another time. He approaches her, offering assist...

    (2.5 rounded up) Meh. I feel kind of let down. This had quite a bit of hype and the premise seemed good, but it fell flat for me. First, the good: I loved the setting. 1920s-1940s Grand Central Station in NYC. I loved the idea of playing with ?Manhattanhenge,? when the sunrise ...

    Ok, I did not see that coming. Usually, when a character does something unexpected near the end of a book, it means that the author has written herself into a corner that she can't get out of without someone having an epiphany or just acting way out of character or something. But in th...

    Lisa Grunwald has written my favorite kind of novel. Set within the wondrous boundaries of Grand Central Terminal, Time After Time is the story of Joe and Nora, the love they find amidst impossible circumstances, their fight to stay together, and the great sacrifices they make along th...

    via my blog: https://bookstalkerblog.wordpress.com/ 'What Nora had never shaken was the memory of fighting to come out of the ether.' Nora Lansing knows where she wants to go, just not how to get there. She is young, ?out of place? and railroad worker (leverman) Joe Reynolds is...

    This definitely feels like a "it's me, not you" rating. For one thing, you have to be willing to buy into the instant connection and I just didn't. For another, it turns out I don't really like love stories where (view spoiler)[the characters are separated by time like this! (hide spoi...

    Joe and Nora meet and fall in insta-love. Their happily ever after is kept at bay by the fact that Joe is mortal and Nora is a ghost who can only live in Grand Central Terminal. This is the premise as well as the entire plot of this 400 page book. Maybe the premise sounded good but...

    Time After Time has an interesting premise. Time travel set against the background of the Depression and then World War 2. However, the implementation of this idea fell flat for me. The characters did not feel well developed nor were they likable, and I had a hard time caring about the...

    Thanks to the publisher for providing a free review copy via Netgalley. As with many other time travel romances, the central conflict is that the traveler doesn?t age the way the non-traveler does. Despite the repetition of that plot element, this is still a good story. Joe and No...

    It's December 1936 when train leverman Joe Reynolds first encounters an unusual young woman in Grand Central. He can't help noticing her eye-catching red hair, outdated flapper dress, and lack of a coat, despite the cold weather. She declines his offer to walk her home, and Joe loses t...

    I must say there was some initial reluctance going into this book. It sorta kinda sounded like women?s fiction, a very specific type of lachrymose sweeping romance. And wouldn?t you know, in the end it actually was a potentially tear inducing grand (Grand Central based) epic love s...

    Poignant ~ Enchanting ~ Sweet tl;dr : Death doesn't stop love. This is a non-traditional romance novel, if there is one. It is a really sweet tale about love during the Depression (and later) in New York City. The writing has a gentleness that is appealing. The well-crafted char...

    I received this from Netgalley.com for a review. December 1937, Joe meets Nora in Grand Central Terminal. She seems slightly out of place and off kilter. Joe is captivated by Nora from her first electric touch and he despairs when he tries to walk her home and she disappears. I...
