Book review

To find her soul mate in the present, a young woman reaches back to a love story more than a century ago in England in this #1 Best Seller in Time Travel Romance and Magical Realism.

Kat has been too busy fighting the demons of her past to focus on love. But when she meets an intriguing new man, Will, in London her world is turned upside down. She feels she's seen him before, but knows she hasn't. Or has she?

An enigmatic woman named Destiny, saying she has a secret to share, whisks Kat and Will off to midnight parties where champagne flows freely and nothing is what it seems. And then there are those dreams that unfold in an elegant 19th century English castle…

Torn between fear of the unknown and fascination at what might happen between her and Will, Kat must decide: Should she run away, or should she seize this opportunity to change her life and find true love?

Alternating between the reality of day and the mystery of night, Close to Destiny by best-selling author Adria J. Cimino is a time travel romance story of déjà vu and righting past wrongs that will delight fans of authors like Susanna Kearsley and Kristin Hannah.

Interview with the Author

What was your inspiration to write Close to Destiny?

I used to stay at a beautiful, mysterious London hotel for business trips. The dim & elegant setting made me think of romance, clandestine parties, family secrets, midnight encounters, dreams. I wove these elements—with a touch of magic and a bit of the paranormal—into this magical realism romance.

It seems as if it might fall into several genres?

It's contemporary literary fiction / women's fiction, yet includes magical realism and a touch of paranormal romance. Readers say it reminds them of the time travel romance The Time Traveler's Wife and novels by Sarah Addison Allen. I included mystical romance to transport the reader to another place… and to question our notions of reality. And in general, I aim to write fiction that is fast-paced, with surprising plot twists.

What message do you hope readers take with them?

The book deals with facing (or refusal to face) mistakes of the past, healing old wounds and starting over. And for any of us who has ever wondered, "Do I have a soulmate? Will I ever find my soulmate?" this story addresses that in a unique way. Another important theme is (big surprise) destiny. How much control do we have over our own destiny?

What are your favorite genres to read?

I enjoy a wide variety, but my favorites are literary fiction & women's fiction with strong female protagonists. And I like a little twist of paranormal romance.
