Self-determined Jessica Brewster is wary of any emotional relationship, after being betrayed in a bet. When the beloved grandmother who raised her dies, she inherits a mysterious teacup which when rubbed transports her back to 1886 in Old Fort Laramie, switching places with her look-alike great-great-grandmother--wife to her ancestor's magnetic first husband and mother to his charming nine-year-old daughter.
Can she pull off the charade and find a way back, or will conscience and her twenty-first century "slips" expose her identity? As true love--and a gypsy--derail her plans, her ancestor's brother shows up with his own dark secret. Is her future in the past? Her decision could save her life...and her legacy.

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
