Celebrate Lit Blog Tour: Garrett by Izzy James





Book: Garrett

Author: Izzy James

Genre: Christian Romance

Release date: November 27, 2020

Garrett Tyler thought he was leaving Ballard House for home, secure in the knowledge that love had finally won-out for his long-time friend Olivia. He steps out the door and into the past, 1769 to be exact. While finding his bearings Garrett stumbles upon a beautiful woman being attacked. He makes sure she gets home and because of his kindness, she allows him to stay in an outbuilding—even believing his time travel story—while he figures out how he will get back to his life in the future. The more time they spend together, the deeper friendship they build, but one thing is going to rip her world apart.

Mercy Hansford is a confidant, independent woman running her own tailor shoppe. Her world is shaken when she is brutally attacked after delivering one of her sought-after shirts. The consequences of this night could be more far-reaching than either of them can guess.

Should Mercy trust a man she barely knows?

Garrett by Izzy James is Book 2 in the Yorktown Christmas Time Travel series. I have not read the first book in the series, but it seems as though this is a good standalone book. I have read other series by Izzy James and therefore I was intrigued to read this book. 

I will say that the book was a little hard to follow along and I really didn't get the storyline until the 3rd Chapter. The setting is 1769 and it is a Time Travel book. Garrett steps out of his house and right into 1769. Garrett ends up being in the right place at the right time as he happens upon a woman, Mercy, who is getting attacked. He rescues her and makes sure she gets home safely. She returns the favor and allows him to stay at her property, in a guest house. He is trying to figure out how to get back home. Will he get back to the Present time or will he stay with Mercy as their friendship has flourished? 

I really enjoyed reading about Garrett and Mercy, once I really grasped the storyline. It is short and easy to read Novella. Mercy really proved to be a brave woman who suffered through some traumatic things. Garrett was an interesting character in that he was really a present time character, living in the past. The story is fun and unique. I recommend this book for anyone who enjoys Historical Fiction, especially Time Travel! Good BOOK! 





Izzy James grew up in coastal Virginia. She lives there still with her fabulous husband in a house brimming with books.

Why did I write Garrett?

While I was writing Max I was working through physical therapy prior to a lumbar fusion surgery. My physical therapist’s assistant was a young man named Garrett. He was intrigued that I was a writer and asked me if I would use his name in a book one day. So I had a name.

As I finished writing Max–who came forward in time from 1769–I started thinking about what it would be like for a young person of today to find himself back in 1769.

Garrett of the book bears no resemblance to Garrett of the physical therapy office! Garrett was fun to write. I hope you will enjoy reading it.
