I absolutely loved this book and could not put it down. I read a short Candy Hearts story by the author already (Hot Stuff, a short, sweet contemporary "novelette") and I fell in love with the author's storytelling, voice, and style right away. I've become a pickier reader but I love love love her style. I knew this one would be just as great. I could really tell that the CJ Fosdick did her research (I'm a sucker for historic settings that whisk me away to another time and place). Reminiscent of Outlander (so if you love Gabaldon's books you'll love this one!), we have a modern gal transported back in time, but she becomes her ancestor! I loved Jess and Mitch. The story-line flowed naturally (as did their love). I read the blurb for the next book (though this book is a fabulous stand-alone) and I can't wait to dig into that one, too. I need to know more about Mitch and Jess!

A magical family heirloom will send one woman back in time to live the life of her ancestor, while finding a love that time could not destroy. Trapped in 1886, Jessica must pretend to be her great-great grandmother, but can she convince Jessamine’s husband and child? Armed only with knowledge of the era, how can she perform all the task required? How can she fake knowing what to do or what to say? THE ACCIDENTAL WIFE by C.J. Fosdick was a surprisingly touching read as we see the new life Jessica must fumble through while trying to discover how to get back to her time. Driven by Jessica’s characters, we are constantly in her head, seeing things as she would and feeling every emotion she carries. Is it possible she has found her soulmate in her grandmother’s first husband? Will he believe her when she tries to tell him or think she has had “an episode?” How does she become a mother to her great-grandmother as a child? I found that living this tale through Jessica’s eyes had moments of pure delight as well as moments that seemed to drag on, like being caught up in a tunnel, not quite getting the entire picture of what was all around her. I do have to say, the final pages made this story for me, they were emotional gold. I received a complimentary copy from C.J. Fosdick!

I thoroughly enjoyed The Accidental Wife. I must admit I do not read a lot of this genre but on my wife's recommendation I started The Accidental Wife and could not put it down. Jess and Mitch are great characters and CJ had me debating Jess' dilemmas, cheering her achievements and happy for her joys, CJ definitely brings the reader into the story. Needless to say my wife and I are still on good terms and I absolutely would recommend The Accidental Wife. Tyler Scott

On a ski vacation, I found it hard to put this page turner down to ski--or pack up to leave. I loved all the characters, especially Mitch and Jess. I was so emotionally involved, I found myself laughing, crying, even biting my nails at the suspenseful parts of the story. I also learned a lot from all the historic references. Can't wait for the sequel!!

Wow! What a great read C. J. Fosdick wove using her creative ability to bring the characters to life with trials and tribulations sprinkled with love and humor throughout her book, The Accidental Wife. I couldn't put it down. I laughed. I cried. And was torn by Jessica's dilemma. I absolutely cannot wait for the sequel, The Accidental Stranger. Beverly Mayer
