The Seven Year Slip

Books on Tape Jun. 2023. 9:44 hrs. ISBN 9780593739495. $85.50. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
When Clementine moves into the apartment she inherited from her beloved aunt, she learns that her aunt’s fanciful tales about her magical apartment are real. One evening, Clementine comes home and is transported seven years into the past to find the apartment occupied by a beautiful man with a Southern accent, moonlit eyes, and dreams of being a chef. Clementine is immediately charmed, then distressed when she is thrust back into her time and a meeting with James “Iwan” Ashton, up-and-coming celebrity chef, potential author client, and the man she flirted with in the apartment over lemon pie seven years ago. Can Clementine and Iwan ever slip into the right time to be together? As Aunt Analea always said, it is about timing above all in matters of the heart. This single-POV romance is a swoon-worthy journey, aided by narrator Brittany Pressley’s excellent character work in bringing Iwan’s Southern drawl and Clementine’s powerful emotions to life.
VERDICT Poston (The Dead Romantics) deftly weaves the magical apartment into the story and pulls off a spectacular happily-ever-after. For fans of Emily Henry and Abby Jimenez.
