SYNOPSIS

After unwillingly leaving a comatose Nicolas behind on Mont Saint Michel in 1429, Katelyn Michaels is distraught to be back in the United States in modern times. When a series of remarkable events facilitates her taking up residence on the Mount and reveals why Katelyn was called as a Watchman, her fondest hope is to be reunited with Nicolas, regardless of the circumstances. However, when Nicolas unexpectedly arrives with a new mission for her, Katelyn is devastated to learn that his head injury has deprived him of any memories of their relationship. Nonetheless, she is determined to once again save the Mount—this time in sixteenth-century France amidst violent religious turmoil—and rekindle Nicolas’s feelings for her. The couple’s love and loyalty is tested as she and Nicolas attempt to unmask the true source of the threat¬—their adversary Abdon—sort out their conflicting emotions, and deal with the consequences of an astounding age-old secret.

VIRTUAL BOOK TOUR QUOTATIONS

The French Village Diaries

Katelyn is a great character, believable (despite her ability to travel through time), intelligent, strong and independent.
This book is action packed and full of real history woven into readable fiction.
Although written for young adult readers, these books are perfect for anyone with an interest in French history, told with excitement and the fresh ideas of youth.

The Fictional 100

At the end of this highly enjoyable reading journey, I can highly recommend this book and the whole Watchmen Saga. Kathleen Perrin is equally strong in creating engaging, believable characters and in managing complex plots, transforming them into well-paced, suspenseful, and romantic fiction. And she does her research!

LibriAmoriMiei

Lovable characters, amazing setting, great historical reconstructions and fascinating descriptions: it is impossible not to love this book.
I love the style of this author, simple, slowing, engaging. The plot kept me on edge from start to finish.
It’s a charming, interesting, enjoyable reading with a perfect mix of action, mystery and romance.
If you love French history and stories with time travel this book will not disappoint you.

Locks, Hooks and Books

I was a little intimidated at first by the size of the book but had no problem turning the pages and was sad when it ended. I found it to be a fabulous and clean novel full of intrigue, action, and adventure. One of the best time travel stories I have read.

History from a Woman’s Perspective

Despite her emotional turmoil, Katelyn was still a very strong and intelligent character. I found her character growth to be the most interesting part of the trilogy and she was a very complex protagonist.
The Secret of the Abbey was a worthy conclusion to The Watchmen Saga.
The books are very well-written, and I love learning about 15th century France. Thus, The Secret of the Abbey has enough adventure, action, romance, history, and a touch of mystery that will appeal to any reader.

An Accidental Blog

I really enjoyed the suspense and the immersion into historical life.
The author did a wonderful job of capturing details so the reader can experience France throughout the centuries.

Cindy

The Secret of the Abbey, is the third book in her YA fantasy time-travel adventure series, “The Watchmen Saga”. This book is sure to please those readers that are interested in historical fiction as well. The author has demonstrated painstaking efforts in creating in-depth historical settings and atmospheres in detailed accuracy.
This story weaves through modern-day and historical France, providing readers with romance, action, mystery, and adventure.
A well thought-out conclusion to the series.

Words And Peace

Suspenseful and satisfying ending to a wonderful YA historical novel on 15th France. Awesome blend of fantasy, where old and modern combine to teach great life lessons.

Impressions in Ink

I’ve had an opportunity to watch Katelyn’s personality and character develop. She is an amiable person. I was shown her strengths and weaknesses and this makes her a relatable character.
Katelyn is a character easy to identify with, her humanity is shown, but her ability to work through and persevere under the gift is amazing. She is a worthy heroine.

Svetlana’s Reads and Views

It’s probably the first time travel book that I liked.
A lot of story elements are done well in the book.
