Her wedding fast approaching, celebrated chef Kady Long knew she was the luckiest woman alive...until she slipped into a delicate satin wedding dress she found in an antique flour tin and was overcome by an odd dizzy spell. When she came to, Kady was in the dusty western town of Legend, Colorado -- where a hanging was about to commence! With quick wits and more than a little moxie, Kady halts the proceedings, much to the relief of one Cole Jordan, a tall, thankful, and very appealing man.
Now it's Kady's turn to enlist his help to find a way back home. But before long, Kady discovers a passion that she knows can only live in Legend -- until Cole reveals a secret that unites them in a way Kady never could have imagined.

I read this book at the recommendation of a friend. I'm so glad I did. This is the most entertaining book I've read in a long time. In addition to romance, it also contains time travel which is one of my favorite elements and lots of twists and turns in the story. A very fun read.more
I liked it - I'm a fan of JD, but I did struggle with the heroine having three men all in one book that were falling all over her. I mean, I can see one as the antagonist and one as the protagonist, but three? And then I wasn't clear on why she had to go back through the portal later. Seemed to me she'd finished her journey, except maybe JD didn't have a high enough word count so she had to send Kady back through the portal one more time - no, two more times, wait . . . everybody jump in and let's see who jumps out. Yeah, that part I didn't care for. I don't believe in messing with events that will alter the future. Someone won't come back through because they've never been born (and in this case, one of them didn't). It was a little too far-fetched that since they fixed the issue in the past, the guy that Kady ultimately ends up with should have not existed (even though they tried to allow for that).

Again, I liked it - it was light reading, but maybe a little more suspended reality than I like.more
This is a step back in time that is a fun Read. Well done Jude.more
interesting time travel back to the old westmore
After reading this book, the only thing that stayed with me was Kady's nifty trick of rolling herbs between layers of pasta dough. That was interesting and fun. This book was neither.more
I love Jude Deveraux's stories. They are generally simple, well thought out, with a good surprise or two along the way. This one definitely kept me guessing. Kady is getting married to Gregory, and is the leading chef at a small place called Onions. Her life is going according to plan and then she finds the perfect wed...ding dress. Dress and all, Kady falls through a ripple in time to save Cole from the hang man's noose in 1873. Legend is a beautiful old mining town in the mountains of Colorado, with some dark secrets. As Kady discovers the truth about Legend, she also learns the truth about her own life. A parting promise to a woman long dead sends Kady on a second journey she hadn't expected, one that changes her life, and the lives of many others. Full of surprises and memorable characters, Legend will grab you, and leave you wanting more!more
Master chef Kady Long is about to be married to one of the handsomest men she's ever seen - not her dream man, but she's given up finding him. Petite and curvy, Kady suffers from low self-esteem pretty much everywhere but the kitchen where she's the master of all she surveys. Days before her wedding she buys and old truck on a whim and on opening it, finds a gorgeous wedding dress from the 1800's - and it fits. Trying it on, however, catapults her back through time where she meets yet another handsome man - he's not her dream man, either, but she ends up marrying him anyway, only to end up back in the 20th century.If that's not convoluted enough, enter yet another handsome man - a descendant of the 19th century hunk, and she seems to have inherited all his millions.Overly complex and a bit jumbled, this isn't Deveroux's best, but it's not her worse, either.more
I read this book because I like the author but weterns aren't my thing.more
