      Where do I begin? This book was so good that I read the whole thing in just one day! I couldn't put it down. Eugenia Riley is one of my all time favorite time travel romance authors. It's set on the stage of an opera theatre. The heroine has a beautiful singing voice but she lacks confidence. There is a rumor of a ghost who haunts the theatre and she has an encounter the very first day of rehearsals. Something is drawing her, pulling her backward in time. When she arrives the ghost is a flesh an [...]

      i adored this book! the main character travels back in time while doing a play, and meets the man that had been haunting her for weeks, but as a ghost. now he's flesh and blood and every bit as desirable as the ghostly figure from her time. it's mainly about them, but it's also about her finding her destiny in the opera. this book really inspired me as a singer. let's not forget that Eugenia Riley always has steamy scenes in her books. a wonderful book i would recommend to anyone. :)

      Love the idea of thisLove the concept and setting, the romanticism and era, but like many stories, a couple of things had me gnashing my teeth. Jacques womanizing waysd Bella's inability to consider committing to try! And with that, I mean to him, staying, and fully letting go as a opera singer. He was charming and used to getting his way. He didn't see anything wrong with his behavior or past. In that, I was fully on Bella's side when she didn't want to be his next conquest, but admit, I did se [...]

After her audition, the director asks her how she got into the opera house before they arrived. She told them Mr. Usher let her in and they all start laughing. The director tells her Mr. Usher has been dead for many years. Bella is shocked, two ghosts in the same day, but only one had any effect on her, the ghost of Jacques LeFerve. Bella has a beautiful voice, b [...]

      I was inpressed by this author's knowledge of music and how skillfully she used it interwoven into the story. It uses both classical and operetta music to tell the tale of Bella de la Rosa, am singer in the chorus of the opers in New Opleans, mainly to please her dying grandmother who was a misucuan as well as her deceased parents. The Opera House is haunted by the ghost of a handsom singer, Jacques Lefevre who was murdered onstage during the performance of an Operetta called "Kalidiscope." Duri [...]

      I love stories that transcend time itself. I believe in soul mates, and stories like this brush that theme. Of here is truly only one person for you, then even time could not keep you apart. I loved the surprise at the ending, too.

      You know you're going to have to suspend disbelief to a certain degree when it comes to a historical paranormal. In this book, opera singer Bella de la Rosa suffers from stage fright, so she only wants to be in the chorus. She moves from New York to New Orleans to be with her grandmother, who is in ill health, and gets a job singing in the chorus at the St. Charles Opera House -- which is, of course, haunted by the ghost of a tenor who was murdered 100 years ago. And, of course, he keeps showing [...]

      Good bookYou people should just read this book yourselves and write your own review on this novel yourself and I really enjoyed reading this book very much so. Shelley MA

    • Tamela says:

      An enjoyable read, though pretty predictable. The fact that Bella pops back and forth in time without any real explanation kind of bothered me.Jacques is also a bit annoying as he seems to be so "naive" about his treatment of women love them and leave them type of guy. He goes through life without thinking how this would affect his victims I mean lovers. Because of this I never really warmed up to him. He just didn't seem like a likeable character.I'm also not a fan of Bella. I know she had a de [...]

      As Bella De la Rosa tries to overcome her stage freight and be the diva her grandmother always knew she could be, the murderous past of the theater comes back to haunt her, literally. As Bella see's the irresistible ghost of Jacques LeFevre calling for her to sing to him, she finds herself swept threw time, racing against the clock to save him from fate. Or was it her that caused his untimely demise?I absolutely loved Bella. She was full of spunk and demanded respect. LOVE LOVE LOVE that. More l [...]

      The first time I read this I was in college and that was more than 10 years ago. Back then I was all over this book, I was in love with the Jacques LeFevre, the lothario tenor who stole the heart of the protagonist, Bella Dela Rosa. I loved it because the romance affected me. See, I don't usually get all sappy when I read a romance novel but on this one I did. After so many years I read it again and to my surprise, it hasn't lost its charm. It is one of those books that I couldn't put down. The [...]

    • Diane Hoover says:

      The stellar reviews on this book confuse me. While it started of strong and interesting, that ended by 25% in. Jacques is a chauvinistic, self-centered, womanizing, spoiled "hero". Bella is a stubborn, unfulfilled woman. And neither character arcs in ways that are believable or endearing. And Jacques' dialogue is so repetitive that your left wondering if his real life persona is a ghost stuck on a recording. This book could have been emotionally charged and the mystery of the murderer could have [...]

    • Deb says:

      This started out as an interesting story with some mystery of two ghosts. By the middle, the story was getting tedious with Bella's "oh no we cannot be together" and her "oh no I didn't mean it please take me back to him". This would have been better as a short story. In addition, I wish there had been more of the old caretaker ghost. Just two instances so no real purpose in the story. Overall it was an okay read.

    • Christine says:

      The build-up to the two lead characters meeting took some time and was a bit tedious, but after that, the story moved faster and was more entertaining. I felt like the back and forth between Bella and Jacques about their relationship was overdone, especially toward the end, but not to the point where I wanted to stop reading.Overall, not the worst time travel book I've read, but also, not the best.

    • Dee-Ann says:

      I liked this dithering between 4 and 5 stars. It was romantic, had some suspense and was quirky with time travel (and some steamy love scenes). It was a little bit soppy in some parts, but overall I could not wait to read more. The ending was good, a little too happy maybe, but it was a feel good ending with a surprise thrown in.

    • Kbee says:

      First book I have read from Ms. Riley and it was pretty good. Another twist on TT as well as The Phantom of The Opera. Liked the characters they were all realistic. I found myself looking up the songs and listening to them while reading.Though at times it did drag a bit it was an easy & fast read.Loved the ending.

    • Heather says:

      What a great story. There is some seriously steamy kissing!! and sex. I was glad that Bella over came herself to be free from her stage fright so she could realize her place with Jacques and on stage.

    • Cheryl says:

      I read this book "years ago" I think I still have it in PB. But when I saw it was a free ebook I decided to re-read it again. And I still liked it after all this time.

    • Pernette says:

      Good book. Loved the New Orleans setting. Loved the characters. Enjoyed the paranormal,time travel aspect. Will definitely read other Eugenia Riley books.

    • Ann Babcock says:

      Great book! Super love story!

    • Jessica says:

      The story dragged out a little, so it took me a bit longer to finish, and the plot was a little frustrating sometimes, but over all--I liked it.

      Awful. Just awful.
