This part I even liked more. Normally I am not a big fan of time travel, but the author has made me change my mind. The way she writes, adds emotions and drags you in to the story is high class. It's also nice to see that one of the characters ends up, even o I have read part one of the series and I really liked it. It's also nice to see that one of the characters ends up, even only for a while, in your home country. It even connects you more to the story.
If you have missed part one, hurry and buy it and oh, don't forget to add this one to your basket as well. I know you will enjoy it as much as i did. Mar 30, Karen Mace rated it it was amazing.

She loves being surrounded by so much history and has her favourite pieces at the museum, one of which is a pair of victorian ice skates that have the initials CAT on the side of them - the name intrigues her and she soon finds that she becomes a little more tuned into their past with a series of flashbacks.
And when she meets Theo, who is staying at the nearby campsite, she has an extraordinary feeling that she knows him but can't quite figure out where from. His presence unsettles her a little as the bond they appear to have is strong despite only fleeting meetings near to the museum.
I love the community feel of the Hartsford series and it's great to meet up with old 'friends' from book one, although this is a story that can still be enjoyed as a stand alone read! It has a gentle feel to it throughout in an idyllic setting, and the time slip element is crafted so well that it just feels so normal to flit between the dual timelines. During the flashbacks, we learn more of the character of Catriona and her story of life in a much different time, with her struggles and expectations. And when Will appears in her life it becomes clear that they are meant for each other, but others don't agree.
I loved the relationship between Kate and Theo - they don't rush things and are aware that each other has baggage, but sometimes other forces are at work and they more they try and stay away from each other, the more the opposite happens! There are laughs, loves and tragedy Another fabulous read that had me captivated from start to finish - and any book that features vampire ducks is fine by me!

Description - My Candlelight Novel by Joanne Horniman
All in all it made for an absorbing read. Although it was sad to say goodbye to Katie, Theo, Cat and Will, I held onto the thought that Kirsty no doubt still has many more Hartsford Hall tales up her sleeve - great news for all of us. All in all an excellent read with great characters, well deserving of five stars. Apr 12, Joanne rated it it was amazing. In Watch for Me by Candlelight, Kirsty Ferry has her main character Kate move seamlessly between the past and the present. Kate works in a folk museum in the village of Hartsford, close to Hartsford Hall.
When she comes across a set of Victorian ice-skates she is quite fascinated by them and wants to find out more about their owner, Catriona Tredegar.
And when she meets visiting farrier Theo Kent, she has a strong sense that they have met before The connection between Kate and Theo in the pre In Watch for Me by Candlelight, Kirsty Ferry has her main character Kate move seamlessly between the past and the present.
The connection between Kate and Theo in the present is almost instant as there is a immediate spark of recognition between them. They quickly fall into an easy friendship and it is clear there is a promise of something more for both of them. In a similar way, Catriona and Will are also drawn to each other in the past but their love is not without its difficulties, being of very different social standing.
I loved the detail about all the clocks striking at significant moments and whenever Kate was moving between times. It reminded me of the song 'My Grandfather's Clock' which struck twenty four when he brought his wife home for the first time and then stopped working completely when he died. It was a real page-turner for me with characters I really liked well, except for Kate's temporary assistant Jenna and Chris, Kate's boyfriend! The moving between the past and present was perfectly done with a real sense that it was all perfectly plausible.
I enjoyed too the echoes of the characters and events from the past coming through into the present. The romantic element was beautifully done - I would expect no less in a ChocLit novel. I really hope that we might have a return visit to Hartsford, not just to find out what happens next for Kate, but also to get another glimpse into the history of the hall.
Apr 03, Anne rated it it was amazing Shelves: But this book has to be one of the best examples ever of how practice makes absolutely perfect. The author handles the whole thing with absolute ease and considerable flair — strong and credible love stories in both timelines, real drama and sadness, nice touches of humour and the supernatural elements introduced totally naturally. Both stories are really excellent.
I loved the festival in the modern story — the folk museum itself, the ice-cream bicycle, the bosom-thrusting assistant, the back stories of both main characters, the tug of romance — and the historical thread was just wonderful, a romantic and dramatic tale with an uncertain conclusion that has your heart beating faster for all the right reasons.
This was a thoroughly lovely, beautifully written read — timeslip romance at its very best. Mar 25, Helen rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book is so well written, the characters begin to feel like family and you become drawn into their world and every so often you step back out and realise how deep you have become absorbed. The centre point of this book is about a Folk Museum set in Suffolk and how somehow it draws people to it and kept them close. Feb 17, Teagan rated it really liked it.
