Waterfall by Lisa T Bergren ~ 5 stars + Favorite!

Waterfall
Lisa T Bergren
The River of Time series, #1
David C Cook
About the book:
What do you do when your knight in shining armor lives, literally, in a different world?

Most American teenagers want a vacation in Italy, but the Bentarrini sisters have spent every summer of their lives among the romantic hills with their archaeologist parents. Stuck among the rubble of medieval castles in rural Tuscany on yet another hot, dusty archeological site, Gabi and Lia are bored out of their minds… until Gabi places her hand atop a handprint in an ancient tomb and finds herself in fourteenth-century Italy. And worse yet, in the middle of a fierce battle between knights of two opposing forces.

Suddenly Gabi’s summer in Italy is much, much more interesting.

My review:
Blown away. That’s really all I can say. This pulled me in from the first page, and I couldn’t put it down until I finished. The attention to detail and historical accuracies were fantastic! They made you feel like you were there! The characters were awesome and I was pulling for them the whole time. The only problem is that I will have to wait to find out what happens next! Action, adventure, romance, and a bit of a cliffhanger ending; it’s got everything!  Bravo, Ms. Bergren! Highly recommended.

Thanks to Lisa for my free review copy of this book!
