Christina Courtenay - Reviews

"A well-developed plot and very likeable protagonists… add to this not one but two love stories and this reader is a very, very happy person!"

Discovering Diamonds: Historical Fiction Reviews
"Two seamlessly interwoven love stories for the price of one! From the times of the Vikings to modern day London, Christina Courtenay's master class of spine tingling timeslip is as sparklingly authentic - and page-turning - as ever."

Maggie Sullivan
"Beautifully written and well researched, Echoes of the Runes took me by the hand and led me into a time of danger, passion, and ultimately… love ?"

"A dual narrative… enhanced by elements of magical realism so plausible and engaging, this book will leave you breathless. Enthralling and romantic."

Sandy Barker
"Two powerful love stories, a couple of nasty types, Welsh/Celtic history, Viking folklore and a hot archaeologist as the hero - what more could you want? Fabulous!"

"A Viking delight! Definitely a book where you can lose yourself in the story and imagine yourself in the two heroines' shoes. Next book please…"

Jayne
