Doors to the Past
By Rachel Scott McDaniel

Now to begin with I will admit I have not yet finished this book - due to a shipping mishap I got the book late. But what I have read has been excellent. 
I really enjoy books that take place in various time periods with something that ties them together. In this case the commonality is The Belle of Louisville. This ship is in both 1920 and the present the focal point of a mystery. 

In both time periods the characters are mostly likeable but there are hints at secrets that may or may not change my opinion of them (further reading will be needed. 

I love both the cover and the title of this book - it just drew me to the book and at this goes well with the story. At this time I believe this will be a 4/5 star reviewed book if all continues as it it is with the pacing and storyline.

I was provided a complimentary copy of this book with no expectations but that I provide my honest opinion. All thoughts expressed are my own.

Series: Doors to the Past
Author: Rachel Scott McDaniel
Publisher: Barbour Fiction
Release Date: September 1, 2021
Genre: Dual Timeline / Romance 

Two women, a century apart, are bound by a haunting secret aboard a legendary steamboat. 

As wedding coordinator for the 100-year-old steamboat The Belle of Louisville, Devyn Asbury takes pride in seeing others’ dreams come true, even though her engagement had sunk like a diamond ring to the bottom of the Ohio River. When the Belle becomes a finalist in the Timeless Wedding Venue contest, Devyn endeavors to secure the prestigious title with hopes to reclaim some of her professional dreams. What she hadn’t planned on was Chase Jones showing up with a mysterious photo from the 1920s. 

A century earlier, Hattie Louis is as untamable as the rivers that raised her. As the adopted daughter of a steamboat captain, her duties range from the entertainment to cook. When strange incidents occur aboard the boat, Hattie’s determined to discover the truth. Even if that means getting under First Mate Jack Marshall’s handsome skin. 

Walk through Doors to the Past via a new series of historical stories of romance and adventure.
