The Dusky Club, June 1962
Linda S Rice
What if you could travel back into the past to meet the man of your dreams at a time when it would be possible for him to fall in love with you?
Susan does just that when she meets two ladies from Haiti while on a cruise with her childhood friend, Lynn. Mika, the elderly of the two ladies, claims she can see into Susan’s soul and that if she sends her back in time to meet James, the man who Susan has dreamed of for fifty years, Susan will learn something important about him and about herself.
Susan travels back to the year 1962 in her 17-year-old body, where she meets James, age 20, a member of a band that will one day become the most famous band of all time. Susan is stunned and delighted when James is instantly drawn to her, inviting her out for tea and offering to walk her back to her hotel after the band quits playing for the night.
But much to her dismay, Susan’s 17-year-old hormones begin to play havoc with her 62-year-old brain, tempting her towards a relationship with James that she’s not really certain she wants.
Will James end up being the paragon Susan’s always thought him to be? Or, will she learn that sometimes when a dream comes true, that it’s not quite what you expected?

The Necklace: The Dusky Club, June 1962 by Linda S. Rice is one of those books that grab you from the description and make you read the whole book in one breath. I'm not saying it was all perfect, but it was exciting, emotional, and relatable to some women. Susan has one in a lifetime chance to do what she longed to do all her life and her actions are so human... and I liked that. I liked that she isn't just a 62-yea old lady in a young body, she acts naturally for a woman in love. There were places I didn't quite agree with but overall, I liked the story. I recommend the book.

A great start to what seems to be compelling series. Susan goes back in time to meet her crush from back in the day and things get interesting. The book is a good start to the series, I enjoyed it. I think the author overdid several scenes but besides that, I liked the characters, the plot, and the writing style. I will continue with the series and I hope some questions are answered in the sequel. I recommend the book.

After reading the first, I'm off to the second book in the series. Luckily, there are a total of 5! I started this series not expecting much but I was absolutely wrong. The author has a great writing style, the characters are well-rounded and the story moves at a nice pace. I highly recommend the book/series.
