Miss LiV Adventures is a five book series that follows the Unwitting Journeys of the infinitely curious Miss Livingstone through time.
Collecting books for Mr. Thomas Worthington, she becomes tangled in life and love as she learns of her relationships with Mr. Scott Worthington and Mr. Thomas in alternate timelines. Further complexities unfold with family and friends, as she finds keys to her ultimate choice of which life to live. All while being chased by the powerful family of the mysterious Mr. Manush.
“I can highly recommend this book to any readers who enjoy mysteries, romance, historical fiction, and magic.”
“A Wonderful Reading Romp You Can’t Put Down”
“Let’s face it, fabulous and large carat jewels are irresistible, so who could fault Miss Livingstone from wanting to touch, hold, fondle those she discovers in a secret compartment of a huge, intricately carved desk at the new bookstore in town? … She can’t help herself. Adventure beckons and its call is simply more than she can resist.”
“What I enjoyed right from the beginning was Caprice’s quirky personality and the consistent and expressive narrative voice, which fits her and the time period perfectly…The author clearly researched the historical details of the time(s) and then blended them with magic and some steam-punk mechanics.”
“A new blend of history, great literature, and adventure, Miss Liv Adventures was a fun read. I especially liked how every adventure ended with the steam train taking Miss Livingstone back (or forward) to her own time. I really liked the integration of books and history into the plot of the book and thought the details surrounding the key were marvelous and fantastical.”
“Dialog is excellent, consistent, and realistic. The friendship between Caprice and Janie is adorable, and Thomas Worthington is a dear with some mystery yet to be revealed. There is plenty of tension as Caprice travels and is chased by the questionable Mr. Manush.”
“The villain of the piece seems to be chasing her and urging her along at the same time. Although seemingly a simple tale of experience over emotional drama, there are levels to this story; complexities of the past and future which are hinted at but not answered in this first book. All the better for us readers. I’m looking forward to the next installment!”
“not my usual genre but i enjoyed it immensely. wanted to read it right through in one sitting. read it again as soon as i’d finished. DEFINITELY will be checking out the follow-on books. a fast paced story with engaging characters and fun language. a real pleasure to read.”
“Witty and Delightful Characters”
“Memory Key picks up right at the end of book one and without any backstory, so the series is definitely meant to be read in order. Once again, the witty character of Lizzie Livingstone is a delight with a wonderful balance of turn-of-the-century propriety and recklessness.
As a magical time-travel story, this book includes not only the continued search for the mysterious stones that facilitate travel, but a magical Memory Key causes a different future to unfold. The book is the tale of that alternate future.
Though there are some action-filled encounters as Lizzie and Scott time travel, most of the story unfolds in discussions of the mysteries of the stones and the identity of a strange woman who continues to cross the pair’s paths. There is also the ongoing courtship of Lizzie and Scott, which ends with… (no spoilers here).
Readers who enjoyed the first book in the series will also find this one satisfying. Characterization is wonderful, and though this is not a fast-paced book, it had no trouble holding my attention. I look forward to the next in the series.”
NEW RELEASE! DECEMBER 21, 2020… Note from the Author:
This segment of the story was extra long in coming. The complexity of character relationships and the twisty tangled timelines of the indefatigable Miss Lizzie tied my story-weaving in knots and caused several implosions of my grey matter. But with persistence even the tenatious Caprice Livingstone would struggle to rival, I’ve proudly delivered Book III, at last! And Book IV: Secret Key and Book V: Life Key will nicely tie up all the wriggling threads of Miss Livingstone’s journey’s of Life and Love. Coming soon… Enjoy the Journey!
