A romantic waltz through a city filled with music, passion and coffee.

Evelyn Watt fell in love with Austrian marketing director Rudy Moser the moment he stepped into their Boston firm. With his ice blue eyes and chocolate-melting accent, he is as refined as she imagines his home country to be. When Evelyn finds herself unexpectedly unemployed right before Christmas, she is left with an unknown future until Rudy steps in with a job appraising, assessing and cataloging heirlooms, lending her American vernacular to the translated descriptions to give each item international appeal. Evelyn will live in Vienna for the months leading up to a grand auction at a party held in conjunction with the Opera Ball—on Valentine’s Day.

Vienna is a magical blend of waltzing, antiques, and bottomless cups of Einspanner coffee at the Café Mozart. When a secret from Rudy's family's past blows in with the winter chill, Evelyn is forced to confront how well she knows the object of her affection. Her café tablemate, the gruff and enigmatic Klaus Bauner might be the only person who holds the key to Rudy’s past. But could that key also unlock her future? In the days leading up to the Opera Ball, Evelyn finds herself in the middle of the greatest romance of her life…as long as she doesn’t trip over her two left feet.

My Review

LOVE IN THREE QUARTER TIME is a story with an almost lyrical quality as the heroine experiences Vienna for the first time. It's full of romance, new sites and tastes, and new experiences. Readers will feel like they are experiencing Vienna as well, easily getting caught up in this charming place where so much could happen. Recommended to fans of Eva Ibbotson and similar styles of writing.

This was such a charming story! It was beautiful in prose and in setting. It was a little surprising because this is definitely different from this author's other books, but I got over that pretty quickly and just fell into this story. The main character is still trying to figure out who she is. She has a crush on her boss and thinks she wants one thing, but finds, as she finds herself, that maybe what she wants has changed. I had some moments of frustration with her because I wanted her to not screw anything up. Thank goodness she figures it out! I loved all the sweet moments that made this story special. There were some lovely friendships as well.

In the end, was it what I wished for? I really enjoyed this story! It was delightful and refreshing. This author continues to surprise and delight and I'm looking forward to seeing what she writes next!

Have you read this or any of this author's other books? The Bachelor Girl's Guide to Murder is one of my favorite reads.
