Worth the read: The Hourglass Door by Lis Mangum

The Hourglass Door by Lisa Mangum is a very original spin on a good old fashion love story.

Abby, our heroine, is a senior who’s living a life of “status quo”.  The boyfriend, though cute, was handpicked for her when she was a child. She’s applied to all the colleges her parents and friends expect her to go.  Her life is going according to everyone else’s plans, until he transfers into her school.

Dante is different than any boy she’s ever met.  He’s Italian, keeps to himself, wears gloves on his hands, and it feels like time slows down whenever he is near—of course she’s intrigued. But giving into her attraction draws her into the tragic tale of where he’s come from—sixteenth-century Florence!  Condemned to the future for crimes he didn’t commit.  But he wasn’t the only one forced through the hourglass door, and they are dangerous.

When these men force Abby to reopen the hourglass door, Dante must follow and stop them before they can change the past and affect the future.  Abby fears she’s lost Dante forever until a package is delivered showing her how to remake the hourglass door…

Yep, it’s a series.  The next book is entitled The Golden Spiral. I love it, hate it when they keep me hanging.
