Blog Tour + Giveaway: Yesterday Series by Amanda Tru

Yesterday Locket Tour




Her yesterday was five years ago. What will her tomorrow bring? When HANNAH KRAEGER saves a family injured in a car accident, she has no idea she has changed events in the past. Waking the next morning, Hannah discovers her yesterday was really five years ago. Each trip Hannah takes through time changes the timeline and her own life. With help from DR. SETH MCALLISTER, Hannah must unravel the mystery of why she time travels and who she actually is before the strange ability costs her future, the man she loves, and even her life. YESTERDAY is a thrilling Christian Romantic Suspense filled with unexpected twists, mystery, and romance.  


 My Thoughts: It has been a while since I've have read a time travel story. I am glad to have been introduced to this series because it was a good one! The first book, Yesterday, was a great introduction to Hannah's life.

The story started off with a big bang. The reader immediately becomes hooked into what is going on in the story. Things got even more interesting after learning that Hannah somehow traveled to past to save four people's lives and met the man of her dreams. I found myself wondering how things were going to workout for her and Seth. I was also fascinated on how easily Hannah time traveled to the past yet when she returned to the present, she suffered horrible side effects. The story also ended with a cliffhanger that immediately got my heart pumping and had me ready for the second book.

To sum up, I found this book to be fascinating. I liked the time travel aspect and I enjoyed Hannah's character. I give it:

The Locket

Hannah suddenly finds that she has time travelled once again, but this time is different. After helping save a woman's life, Hannah discovers that she has completely altered the timeline and thrown her very existence into jeopardy. Facing life-threatening effects upon returning to her own time, Hannah is then given a death sentence: if she time travels again, she will die. Now, Hannah must solve the clues to her own identity and find a way to save her own life before she is once again sent spiraling through time. Will her mother's locket hold the key to both her past and her future? Has she just found the love of her life only to lose him? Could God have a plan for Hannah amidst the chaos?  


My Thoughts: Oh my goodness! This was so good! It was better than the first one. I found myself holding onto my Nook every moment as I read through the pages.

In this second installment, we came to learn the truth behind Hannah's identity. The story started off immediately after the first book. Seth and Hannah have both been transported to the past during the time Hannah's mom was giving birth. Hannah came to learn something shocking, which lead her to search for answers about herself. This book was full of surprising twists that had me wondering how everything was going to be tied together or simply end. Unlike the first book, this one does not end with a cliffhanger but ends with a happy note.

I greatly enjoyed reading this one. I am highly looking forward to the rest of the series. I give it:

Although I loved my job as an elementary school teacher, I am now very blessed to be mommy to three adorable little boys and living my dream of being an author. I have a vivid imagination and have always been easily entertained by the stories in my head. Fortunately, I also love to paint those pictures with words. I like writing a wide variety of genres, and my current book list includes everything from a Christian time travel / romance series, to an action-packed suspense, to a romance involving a woman who likes to anonymously play matchmaker. Although I enjoy historical, Christian, paranormal, suspense, and everything in between, my books all have one thing in common--I love to surprise my readers with the unexpected. I currently have 7 books available for kindle, nook, and paperback. My family and I live in a small Idaho town where the number of cows outnumbers the number of people.

  1. I love the cover of Yesterday and the fact that it starts with a bang (the last book I read that started with a bang was "Under the Dome" by Stephen King). Thanks for the intro to the series; I'm going to have to pull my Nook out and polish it up (I've been working through my hard copies and it's been neglected) :)

    1. Both of these books are pretty short so you'll be able to get through these quick :)
