I received this book/movie for free from the above-listed publisher/studio in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book/movie or the content of my review.
He's from 1892 England, she's in a small library in 2017. And that's just the start of their troubles. Emme never meant to stay in Maine. She'd come only to find a librarian for her Gram's library, a custodian for the collection of mysterious books she'd promised to protect.
On a dark, wintery night, alone in the library, she takes her first glance into one of the antique novels and finds herself transported to 1892 England staring into the eyes of handsome and dashing hero Jack Ridgewell. As each chapter passes she learns you can truly fall in love with a character in a book, that book boyfriends are real and Emme must choose between the real world, and his.
When the last page is read he's gone and Emme feels the cold loneliness of lost love. Will she find Jack again, or will their love be forever lost? The answer lies within the pages...
I love time travel stories, and this one starts of with our protagonist finishing up her year in college, when all of sudden her grandmother (the keeper of a mysterious library in Maine) dies. Emme, our main character, inherits the library and the magic part begins. Now if you are like me and you adore shows like Lost in Austen and movies like Kate & Leopold, this will be the perfect beach read for you. The plot moves quickly and the Emme is engaging enough to keep you interested.
First and foremost, this is a romance, so some of the time travel details aren’t full fleshed out, but I prefer my stories less time-wimey and more plot driven. The Librarian is just that. You keep turning pages simply because you want to know how it will resolve itself in the end. And speaking of the end, it does resolve itself, but in a way that may hint at a sequel. Emme and Jack are two characters that feel familiar, yet their banter and the truly funny moments make them feel different enough to not be stock characters.
There are some minor editing details that tripped me up when reading, but honestly, these details are missed in romances all the time. It didn’t stop me from reading this story, which is told in a cinematic way. I would love to see it as a TV show or a movie. This is such a perfect beach read — short, interesting and just enough swoony romance to make it worth your while.

I am Southern California native, now living in New Jersey! How did that happen? I am married and have two beautiful little girls who love to read just like Mommy. I have had a passion for books since I was a little girl and an imagination for just as long. I hope my books can inspire others to read and to write too.
