Kate chose a lifemate over a soulmate. Her marriage comes to a crossroads in her mind, and she is given a literal chance for a do-over, a gift of time shifting via the Devil’s Triangle. She must choose between her soulmate and her wrecked life as a disillusioned wife and mother. Impellizzeri brilliantly portrays a woman who inadvertently contributes to the misery in her own life by refusing to let the past be and give herself fully to her present. She learns that no matter what choices are made, and invested in, some things cannot be controlled. There are so many layers to this story, including the parallels of the legendary tale told by the ship’s captain to Kate’s life and the tricky ending to her circular thinking, both impossible to escape from…or not. That ending, circling back to the beginning, is so clever. Fans of time travel, star-crossed love, and characters whose hearts grow three sizes will love this story.

Reviewed by Lisa McCombs for Readers' Favorite What if? We all ask this and we often spend an enormous amount of time concocting various answers. In Lemongrass Hope, Kate gets her answer, and in a very surprising way. After a painful miscarriage that results in a marriage proposal and promises of a secure and happy future, her “what if” catches up with her. Kate and Rob marry, start a family, and lead a life of professional success; yet there is something missing. Thoughts of her first love haunt Kate with increasing fervor as she realizes that her marriage is not what she had hoped. And hope is exactly what Ian had provided, even if he wasn’t the “marrying” type. Kate was determined to hold the marriage together, even when she received a phone call from her husband’s mistress. It was time to create an escape plan. Her broken heart yearned for the man who always gave her hope. He had said that they would always find one another and she needed nothing more than for his promise to materialize. I so loved this story. The characters are easy to relate to and, even with the rather strange turn of events, I believe in them. Even if they do not realize it, readers are constantly on the hunt for that novel; the story that is meant to be read at exactly the right time. Lemongrass Hope is that story. It is a timeless tale of love, awakening, and, above all, hope. Thank you, Amy Impellizzeri, for this gift to the many readers who are searching for "that story." I have found it. Lemongrass Hope is a marvelously realistically told story, if you believe in true destiny.
