A Rip in the Veil

A Rip in the Veil - Anna Belfrage 3,5 starsAlex Lind’s car breaks down in the middle of nowhere in Scotland on her way to a business meeting. While trying to figure out what’s wrong with the car, a terrible storm springs to life, she’s struck by a lightning and pulled through a tunnel in the earth – and she wakes up in 17th century Scotland. There she meets Matthew Graham who is an escaped convict and he takes care of Alex.Back in the present day, Alex’s family is trying to figure out what happened to her and they’re worried because she’s disappeared before which resulted in her son. They learn something new about Alex’s mother who also disappeared years ago. This was fun to read with enough action. It’s not just about time traveling and I liked the relationship between Alex and Graham. I thought the reactions were believable and Alex didn’t spend the whole book being in shock about the difference. It was interesting to read the meeting between Alex and Matthew’s ex-wife. I could understand Alex’s reaction. Sometimes men are idiots no matter the time period…I had few things that bothered me one was that the first sex scene felt little rushed and little too soon. The second was how easily she was starting to forget her son. Apparently she hadn’t really loved him from the start anyway but still. And how I wanted to punch Luke! What an idiot! I’m curious to see how that matter will be settled.
