A Twist of Fate (A Stitch in Time Book 2) Kindle Edition
The problem, of course, is how to explain her absence to her husband. Does he think she abandoned him? Has he remarried? Is he happy in a new life? Rosalind decides to don a disguise in hopes of answering her questions before showing up on his doorstep. Instead, a twist of fate has her mistaken for her young son’s new governess.
Rosalind has every intention of revealing herself as soon as August returns home from business. Until then, she’ll get to know her son, a quiet child who has inexplicably been abandoned by an endless stream of governesses. That’s when the hauntings begin. Rosalind has finally come home and something—or someone—doesn’t just want her gone. They want her dead.

2nd book in A Stitch in Time series. Paranormal romance with time travel and ghosts. Can be read as a stand-alone but better as part of the series in order.
Rosalind accidentally falls through the time-slip in Thorne Manor and it takes several years for her to figure out how to return home to her husband and son. Those years have passed at the same rate and when she finally does return her son is five. He thinks she died while her husband refuses to “see” beyond his business duties. Rosalind becomes the governess to try to find a way back to her family. But someone doesn’t want Rosalind in the house and tries to scare her away.
Engrossing and thrilling. A little suspense and a lot of character growth.
Edmund is so reticent for five years old. I wanted to hug him and was glad to see him become comfortable with Rosalind.
Husband August had jealousy issues when Rosalind accidentally left him. It was gratifying to see him playing with his son. I won’t say more for spoilers.
William and Bronwyn (from book 1 and 1.5) return to help Rosalind.
I loved this story so much. I will definitely be watching for the next book in the series.
Add in a scary ghost determined frighten away all newcomers, a lonely little boy and a bitter husband and you have the makings of a fantastic Halloween treat.
All the stars.
I loved this book which is second in the series. Kelley Armstrong is one of my favorite authors and this book is a prime example of why. I really enjoy time travel books and this concept is excellent. The book was well-written with well-rounded characters. I was drawn into this magical tale from start to finish and am very eager for the next book. I highly recommend both book and series which is best read in order.
I really enjoyed this book and the audio narrator was fabulous.
Twist of Fate, was definitely worth the wait! Immediately, Armstrong had me encased in this time traveling mystery romance. I felt the pain and devestation that Rosalind felt having been ripped from her world, her family and tossed into the future. You felt Rosalind desperation to return home to her family, to have what she had lost. Then upon Rosalind returning home to her time, she walks right into the biggest mystery of all. Well mysteries. Who is haunting the family? Who wants Rosalind gone so much they would go as far as to try and murder her? Is the family safe? Will Rosalind's husband recognize her upon his return?
Armstrong kept me on my toes with every page. I did not solve the mystery ahead of time. Which is exactly how I like my mystery books. She wrapped it all up in a beautiful box and a nice neat bow on top. Armstrong's characters are beautifuly written and well developed each with flaws of their own.
I know it's cliche to say, but I couldn't put this book down. It had my attention from the beginning to end, a fact my dog did not appreciate. I was delighted to see characters from Stitch in Time make an appearance to help our time traveling friend out, although this book can be read as a standalone.
gets into her room and pours pond water on her bed and she didn't wake up? Hey husband didn't recognize her? Give me a break!

The characters leap off the page in this time-travel adventure that is so unique from any other series that have gone before. The experiences of Rosalind Courtney are heart wrenching and suspenseful, as the book twists and turns with such a page-turning pace that the reader has difficulty putting it down.
I look eagerly forward to more books in this series.
A Twist of Fate by Kelley Armstrong
This is the 2nd book in her A Stitch in Time series. It’s a wonderful gothic mix of time travel, murder/mystery, suspense, ghosts and romance.
For me, the best part of this story are the characters, their relationships and personal growth.
It’s the story of Rosalind, a Victorian woman who accidentally steps through Thorne Manor’s time-slip, ending up 180 (or so) years into her future (our present) – leaving behind her husband and baby. Rosalind was thought to have either died in a riding accident, or run off and abandoned her husband August and baby son Edmund.
The story follows her return to her own time, and her reintegration into her family – complete with disguises, ghostly sightings, and a mysterious death.
Someone in the household though, doesn’t want Rosalind there and mayhem ensues.
What works least well is the set-up that allows Rosalind to return to her home, disguised as the new governess, and her self-talk/justification for pretending to be another woman.
What I’d like to see more of – her time in our present, how she adapted and managed to create and own her own business in only four years.
For me, the best part of this story is the developing relationship Rosalind has with Edmund – a quiet well-behaved child who learns to trust and enjoy his time with his mother.
Rosalind’s relationship with August also develops, and she’s much stronger for her time away. August too has grown during their enforced separation.
Unravelling the mystery includes a number of twists and turns I didn’t see coming.
More straightforward than A Stitch in Time, this was an equally enjoyable read. Looking forward to reading the third instalment.
