Character Introduction: Liz Cooke

(If you’re new to these posts: The idea behind them is just to spotlight the character a bit, give a little description of their personality, and for fun, a few books I’d recommend to them if I could. )

CI Liz Cooke

 

Welcome to a sort of late Character Introduction post! In today’s introduction, you will be meeting a lovely character – and you will get to hear more about her and her story next Monday!! So check back for that. ;) But for now, please enjoy getting to know…

Liz Cooke is a woman captivated by the past. Among all the strife and worries in her own world, she fantasizes eras gone by, certain they would offer her the peace and relief she seeks.
Circumstances draw her back to an era where men were gentlemen and women were ladies. In this flowery setting, Liz is awed by all it holds, but soon discovers that 1885 isn’t devoid of problems either – in fact, there seems to be just as many issues she has to face there as in her own world.
I love Liz because she is so real and definitely relatable – who doesn’t long to visit the past, often thinking they had it better than we do now? The lessons she learns are ones that are just as important to us here and now. And besides all this, my booklovers heart found a bond with Liz too ;)

If I were to recommend some books to Liz, they would be…
“An Inconvenient Beauty” by Kristi Ann Hunter – set in the Regency time period, I think Liz would gladly find herself lost in this novel!
“At Your Request” by Jen Turano – this is a novella but a delightful read to be sure, and I think Liz would find it entertaining and amusing as I did!
“A Name Unknown” by Roseanna M. White – I personally think Liz would adore this one. It is full of intrigue, romance, and BOOKS! :D What’s not to love, right?
“Emmeline” by Sarah Holman – a Jane Austen Retelling, I believe it would be a fun one for Liz too. :)

You can meet Liz in “If Only It Were Yesterday” by A.M. Heath:
If Only It were Yesterday (A Season Passed, #1)
Liz Cooke has two problems in life: Her social media is filled with brewing political conflict and her idea of a perfect man seems to have gone extinct a century ago. Inspired by the contents of an antique trunk, Liz dreams she time-travels to 1885. As she sets out to enjoy the Victorian era in all its glory, armed with knowledge gleaned through historical novels and period dramas, will she find the past to be all that she thought? And does the right man for her exist only in her dreams or has he been in her life all along?
Loosely inspired by Alice in Wonderland, A.M. Heath brings you a fun read chock-full of humor and whimsy with a special message for the avid reader in all of us.
