I received an e-book version from the author for the purpose of an honest review.

Story Overview:
Jodi’s birthday breaks her free of the foster care scene and launches her on a journey of self discovery. She thumbs her way to Woodstock to groove on peace, love, and music.

The moment Blue spots Jodi strutting toward him barefoot in the rain, he’s overcome with déjà vu. She doesn’t share his feeling that they were lovers in a previous life, thinking it’s half crazy, still she feels she’s meant to be with the irresistible hippie. As an adult now Jodi’s free to be naughty rather than nice and he’s the man who can make her wildest dreams, the sensual ones, come true.

Is she headed for a love in at his tepee?

My Review:
This book holds an entirely new perspective (at least that I have seen) for the romance genre. The book takes place over the 4 days of Woodstock. Jodi has just turned 18 and has found herself homeless since she can no longer be part of the foster system at that age. She hitchhikes her way to Woodstock where she meets Blue. Blue is part of a commune that have traveled to New York from New Mexico for the festival. They have an instant connection. Blue thinks that is because they were lovers in a past life, although Jodi is a little too grounded to believe that.

This is very much a coming-of-age book as Jodi tries to figure out where she belongs in this world and finds her true first love. It's a fairly short book, so it would make a great afternoon read for when you want to escape to a world where life was a little bit simpler.

If you are a fan of the 60's and Woodstock, then this is the book for you! Cornelia describes the music and the atmosphere brilliantly. You can actually feel the rain and hear the beat of the music as you are transported back to this time. It was actually kind of fun and I'll be honest, I am not a huge fan of this era, but overall, I enjoyed the book. ;o) If you are a fan of the era, then I honestly think that you will LOVE it, esp. if you are really into the music scene from the 60's.

Oh this book sounds like fun! It is something I've never seen before...someone using Woodstock as a scene for a romance story. I'm glad you enjoyed it even though you weren't a huge fan of the era. I think I need to check this one out! :-D
