Shari writes in looking for a book she read in Dutch, and would love to read again:
I have a HABO-request I was hoping you could put before the Bitchery! The book I am looking for was my very first ‘real’ romance, although I didn’t really recognize it as such at the time. I remember a lot about the story, but it has proven impossible for me to find because I read it in Dutch – googling the title is not an option. The story is about a woman who dies in a carcrash and is transported to the past into the body of the horrible wife of a lord (or something). The ‘new’ inhabitant of the body completely turns around the life of the ‘old’ woman – is kinder to everyone, eats healthy, jogs (she wears shorts – huge drama when the husband finds out). Of course the husband – after much suspicion – can’t help but fall in love with his reformed wife.
Then there is a BIG misunderstanding where the husband thinks her character-change was faked, so she wouldn’t be disinherited or something like that, but of course they make up in the end. I remember also that the heroine’s present-day husband is brought a folder by a lawyer containing the entire story his wife has sent him from the past. Rereading this summary it sounds like a dreadful book and even a little creepy, but I’d still love to find it and reread it in light of all the romance reading-experience I have garnered over the years. O, I read this book about ten years ago, but couldn’t say wether it was actually written at that time or earlier (or even later, what with all the time-traveling :p).
Thank you so much in advance for your help – and of course feel free to edit (English is not my first language :p)!
At first, when I stared reading Shari’s email, I thought it was the PC Cast novel Goddess of Spring but that’s not right at all. Anyone remember Shari’s book?
