Love Stories


I love hearing about how people met and their love stories. In fact, it's often one of the first things I ask when I meet a new couple. Most people, if they're still in love, like to share their story. A few have actually been used in my books, or a version of them, but I'll never tell.

Let me tell you a little bit about my love story. I first met my husband when I was 11 and he was 12. My heart skipped a beat or two, and I think my palms began to sweat. I looked forward to seeing him after that. But soon we went our separate ways. We met again when I was 15. I was his best friend's girlfriend, so he was often at our group parties and hung out with us. I just knew somehow that he was meant to be mine The next day after a birthday party for my friend, I told my mother that I was going to break up with my boyfriend and marry him someday. It wasn't easy over the next several years. On and off as teenagers do, but in our senior year we knew we were in love and married the year after graduation while he was in the Navy. And we're still friends with his friend and my ex.

Would you like to share your love story with me and the other followers who read this post? We can't wait to hear all about it.

 Yesterday's Memories is ready for you to enjoy. And it's already #1 in New Releases in Historical Fiction as well as #35 in Time Travel Romance.  I'm so excited for you to read this final book in the A Slip in Time series. 

Here is one of the wonderful reviews it has already received.

Yesterday’s Memories

The “Slip in Time” series by Jane O’Brien seems to be ending. And by “seems to be ending”, I mean
“Are you sure you really have to end this beloved series, Author O’Brien?”

*sigh* Ok, I will review “Yesterday’s Memories” Book 12 as if it’s the finale in the series, but I’m crossing my fingers…

“Yesterday’s Memories” ties up the events of this bestselling series in a lovely and loving way. As readers of the series know, a family quilt has enabled certain members of the Clark family to travel from the present time (or from even more in the future), to the Michigan of the 1800’s. So, it is fitting that this book is written as a “word quilt”. Every chapter features different members of the family, so that by the end of the book, we have pieced together the stories of most of the family. What a special way to sum up each character and leave us satisfied that all is well.

If you’ve read past the of end each book to the supplementary material, you know that the Author lists all of the characters- which are in the hundreds by this time. And we get to say “Farewell” to many of them. Part of the book focuses on lovers Jay and Sadie. Their story is a moving and heart-rending one. Dora and Wade and Franny and Luke are the main characters of the series, and this book finds them making a big decision.

Yesterday’s Memories is stitched with the same warm humor, compelling romance, and history that we have loved in all the books. Reading “Yesterday’s Memories” is like leafing through a well-loved photo album and enjoying the big events and small moments that make life beautiful.

Time slip travel is fascinating. Many thanks to Jane O’Brien for giving us 12 rich and wonderful books. I highly recommend Yesterday’s Memories (And even if this series is truly over, I’ve overheard that a new series is coming.)

Many thanks to Author Jane O’Brien who graciously shared an advance review copy with me. This is my honest review.

Yesterday's Memories is Almost Here!


It won't be long now that Yesterday's Memories will be released. we're working on the final edit and formatting. The Preface for the story was printed at the end of Yesterday's Wishes. If you didn't get a chance to read it, I am giving you a small sneak peek here. No worries. It's more of a history lesson and will not give away anything about the book. It only sets up the era. Enjoy!
The year was 1902. The calendar was well on its way into the new century, bringing along with it exciting inventions and a new way of living. Times had been good to most of the people of Twin Lake and Holton, although not all had had an easy road. Some of the families had prospered while others had struggled. The last few years had been tough for the farmers as the climate had alternated between too much rain and not enough. Many people began to give up their land and move into the cities where jobs could be had that didn’t revolve around the weather. It assured them of a steady income, and along with that came security. They were discovering how convenient it was to be close to grocery stores, churches, and schools, but at the same time those conveniences came at a cost. The streets were noisy and often dirty. Horse droppings were numerous, making it difficult to keep the streets clean, even though the Dutch and German merchants often swept and scrubbed the streets in front of their stores on a daily basis. A few automobiles had arrived in the big city, a transportation miracle, that brought along with it noise, steam, sputtering, and awe. The speed limit was a whopping ten miles an hour, but still some residents felt it was too fast. There were now over eight thousand cars in the United States and one hundred and forty-four paved miles of road. America was on the move.

Cover Peek

Two months ago Yesterday's Wishes was released, and I knew at that time I only had one more book to go in this series. I didn't know how I would feel about ending A Slip in Time, but when the day came to sit down and write it, I was surprised at how quickly the story came to me. I was both thrilled and sad at the same time. Thrilled that the story line was pouring out of me, and sad that the ending came too quickly. I can't wait for you to read it.
Yesterday's Memories is now in the hands of the beta readers for proofing and editing, so I hope to release it sometime in January. For now, I thought you would like a first look at the cover. It actually says it all, and if you have a good imagination, you can tell what I'm trying to say.
If you haven't read Yesterday's Wishes yet, I hope you have some spare time over the holiday rush to catch up, because you'll want to join in with all of my Facebook friends as we chat about Yesterday's Memories.
