Mesmerist by Pam McCutcheon

"An antique hope chest containing five unique objects . . . five people inexorably drawn to the items inside . . . each sent to the past where they must accomplish a task and find their own path to true love with the help of a magical matchmaker determined to bring soul mates together, even across time.

On the eve of her wedding, dog trainer Gina Charles finds her fiancé in flagrante delicto with her maid of dishonor, so she flees to a hotel in a nearby town. Unfortunately, her room already has another occupant--a ghost with compelling dark eyes who cuddles up to her in the middle of the night.

Gina reluctantly agrees to help the ghostly mesmerist, Drake Manton, learn how he died. When her investigation leads her to the burned-out Chesterfield hotel, Gina finds a hope chest in the ruins and is drawn to the melted dueling pistol inside. When she touches it, she and her faithful terrier hurtle back in time to 1883 where she comes face-to-face with the very alive, very sexy mesmerist.

Now all Gina has to do is prevent Drake's fiery death so she can return to her own time. Or will she give up her life in the future for a lifetime of love in Drake's arms?

I enjoyed reading this book. No cliffhangers. A few "too perfect" or "unbelievable" moments, but overall a good, fun and interesting read.

I really enjoyed this little story. Some times i would get so angry with Gina blowing Drake off, but the ending turned out different then what I had expected.

At times, it was difficult to connect with Gina - she seemed an unlikely mate for a 19th century man such as Drake. Having a ghost lead Gina to the past pit a different spin on time travel. It becomes very predictable as to who and what happens, but overall a nice little read.

I just loved it! The main character Gina is so light, so enchanting! The narrative is very vivid and rich in details, good for the imagination! I couldn't put it down.

Drake and Gina's story is a really fun time travel, and part of a great series. Gina is, thank heavens, a modern woman who doesn't get stuck in some of the more tired cliches of the past, and Drake isn't one of those alpha heroes that you want to bop over the head. I love how it's his ghost that draws Gina back into the past, too. Why can't *I* check into hotel rooms like that? I highly recommend ENCHANTMENT, and the whole Hope Chest series.
