Glimmers by Barbara Brooke Blog Tour Stop

A simple touch and suddenly, Paige is in the past - living someone else's life, seeing the world through their eyes, and feeling their deepest emotions.

Paige used to think memories only existed in one's mind. But now, she knows better. She can't explain how or why, but she has glimmers: special moments that have remained behind - clinging to a letter, a ring, even a worn-out pair of boots. 

When Paige returns from each glimmer, a small part of her has changed. Who is this gourmet cook, fashion designer, feisty lover? And how is she supposed to explain this to her family without them thinking she has completely lost her mind?

Paige thought her new talent was a gift, until…she was suddenly transported into her sister’s memory, and caught a glimmer of her secret life. 

Take this humorous and romantic journey, as Paige learns about true love through the lives of three extraordinary women.

Runner-Up in the 2012 New York Book Festival (Romance)!

MY REVIEW 
5 OF 5 GLIMMERS

What can I say I am a sucker for a good romance story and glimmers is definitely that. Paige is just your ordinary mother, wife, sister and daughter but she has a secret. She has Glimmers of the past from other people. She sees what they have kept as memories and gets to see them first hand. Every time she comes back from one of the Glimmers she keeps a piece of that person. She can't believe what is happening to her and sometimes she really enjoys having the glimmers.The glimmers can come from a letter, a ring, shoes, anything that holds traces of a person past.

Then she has a glimmer of her sisters secret life. A secret she has kept and Paige is surprised to see it but to be able to feel the emotions that her sister felt is a lot for Paige. Paige really gets to see a lot when she has her glimmers and she has even gone into a glimmer where she is in love for the first time and I have to say that the one glimmer was my favorite. What can I say I am a sucker for love and romance.

This is such a different read for me because it was wholesome, clean with no sex scenes and no cursing. I really enjoyed it and I look forward to reading more from Barbara.
Currently, Barbara Brooke resides in sunny Florida with her supportive husband, two adorable children, gorgeous greyhounds, and scruffy mutt. She is actively creating new worlds and interesting characters for the next book in one of her series. Shhhh, can you keep a secret? Not only does she write spellbinding, heart-pounding women’s fiction, she also writes books for the young-at-heart, adventurous sort who yearn to dive into a good young adult fantasy story. These particular books are written under the name H.B. Bolton, but that is another story altogether.
