Review: Overseas by Beatriz Williams

Available now: Overseas

****4/5 stars

A dashing WWI hero poet shows up in modern Manhattan to fall hopelessly in love with me, I mean some investment banker? Sign me up!

Recommended readers:

  • If you’re a sucker for a time travel romance…
  • If you like a little historical fiction in your chick lit…
  • If you like some nice healthy suspense with your romance…
  • and if you liked A Hundred Summers, this book is for you

Here’s my Rankings:

  • 4/5 for characters
  • 3.5/5 for plot
  • 4/5 overall


Beatriz Williams, you siren you. If A Hundred Summers is any indication, the back and forth, dual-storyline speed-pacing suspense bit is kind of her thing, and it works for me. The same back and forth had me reading gleefully, enjoying every minute but still wanting it to go faster. She’s a genius with the suspense, though this time I was a bit bigger fan of the characters than the plot. And be warned: it’s some pretty blatant sap.  I for one mostly lapped it up like a puppy.
