If an author took historical fiction, time travel, romance, and mystery, mixing them together, what you would pull out of the oven is Island of Secrets. The author has found this unique blend to delight readers from many genres. The characterizations are strong, the romance is intriguing, and the story stuck in my head after I finished the book. I never wanted the relationship between the protagonist and her love interest to end, because I was so invested in them. This is just what historical romance should be.

This story had so much potential, but the grammatical errors were very distracting thus making it difficult to read. The characters were two dimensional and not very interesting. The author should have spent more time setting up the scene and not rely on witty (yet not very good) dialog. If you don't care about grammar, punctuation errors galore, unrealistic 18th century behavior and speech patterns, a lot of plot holes, then this story is for you.
