Was it just a coincidence or was it fate? That the moment I logged in on twitter, I immediately saw that Time After Time's cover will be revealed in 30 minutes. This is the second book by Tamara Ireland Stone following the unusual "long distance" relationship of Bennett and Anna.
I have read Time Between Us (the first book) last year, and I did not know it came with a second book. This book has been one of my great reads of 2012. I loved it and I was satisfied with the ending. As much as I loved the ending of the first book, I still want to read more about Bennett and Anna. So, thank you Tamara for another story! :)
Here comes the second book...
Calling Anna and Bennett’s romance long distance is an understatement: she’s from 1995 Chicago and he’s a time traveler from 2012 San Francisco. The two of them never should have met, but they did. They fell in love, even though they knew they shouldn't. And they found a way to stay together, against all odds.
It’s not a perfect arrangement, though, with Bennett unable to stay in the past for more than brief visits, skipping out on big chunks of his present in order to be with Anna in hers. They each are confident that they’ll find a way to make things work...until Bennett witnesses a single event he never should have seen (and certainly never expected to). Will the decisions he makes from that point on cement a future he doesn't want?
Told from Bennett’s point of view, Time After Time will satisfy readers looking for a fresh, exciting, and beautifully-written love story, both those who are eager to find out what’s next for Time Between Us's Anna and Bennett and those discovering their story for the first time.
Now, the cover...
Both covers are very pretty. Simple yet pleasing to the eyes. At first glance, I think Time After Time will immediately catch someone's attention maybe because of the color. But to be honest, I prefer the subtle shades in Time Between Us. It just looks more elegant with its sky blue shades and horizon(?) landscape. Then, we have Time After Time. What I like with this one is that we can now see Bennett. He is bigger, closer, and clearer than the first book, which is very fitting with the plot. So, which is better? I think the crown goes to Time Between Us.
What do you think? :)
