A Stone in Time by Kim Allred


AJ Moore climbs to the top of the rocky cliff, and panting hard, rolls over to stare at the gulls circling in the sky. She thrills in the rush, finally back to her old self. Almost. There are still fences to be mended with her family. And if she could find her reclusive muse, the last piece of her life—getting her reporting career back on track—will tumble into place.

When a two-hundred-year-old ship materializes through the fog, inspiration strikes. AJ sets out to unravel its mystery, but her investigation is hampered by the ship’s single passenger—the enigmatic sea captain.

Finn Murphy tires of his mission. He never imagined the journey in a foreign land would last so long, or that his only hope to return home relied on him finding an elusive stone necklace. With his goal within reach, and barely staying one step ahead of an adversary, he can’t fathom how everything could go so wrong.

At the heart of it all—one feisty reporter, who he can’t get out of his head, stands in his way.
The hunt for one simple story will change AJ’s life forever and throw her into a journey that reshapes everything she thought she knew about herself. An adventure that will teach her that life isn’t about goals and career. It’s about family, loyalty, and trust. Finding love was purely accidental.

Very good story, filled with interesting characters, romance , mystery, and more questions than answers about what happens next. Starting the next book immediately. – Goodreads Review
