  1. You and Karen obviously have a lot of fun talking about books! I really enjoyed listening to you both.
    I don’t know if Karen has gotten suggestions in the intervening months from others for books which combine time travel and romance, but the most obvious title that came to my mind is the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. If Karen doesn’t want to get stuck into a never-ending series like Outlander, however, another suggestion is the Winter Sea by Susanna Kersley.

    1. Oh thanks! I will let her know. I've been thinking of trying Outlander again because of the romance side but haven't yet. I had tried it in audio and that didn't quite work for me.
