Jonah Sellers, frustrated aspiring novelist, is getting tired of being cooped up in his apartment, but his broken leg makes leaving difficult.  His doctor sister has been looking after him, but when she leaves for vacation she informs him she has arranged for one of her nurses to take over for a while.  Staring out the window after she leaves, Jonah sees a handsome man in a suit in the window of the apartment directly across from his.  To his surprise, the man starts stripping—only to disappear when an old lady walks right through him!  The bizarre event intrigues Jonah, and when he shares it with Liam, his sexy new nurse, they both become interested in solving the mystery.  As they dig deeper into the past, they discover more than they ever imagined they would.

Windows in Time is an excellent mystery / ghost story / romance.  At first, the parallel storyline structure of the present, with Jonah, and 1957, with a reporter named Buck Addison, was a bit confusing, but once I got used to the style I was enthralled.  Abrasive, frustrated Jonah was a great character.  I would have liked to learn more about Liam, his sweet but hesitant nurse, but I learned enough to see the two were a great fit for each other.  The past storyline of Buck Addison, Oliver Caldwell, and a fifty-year-old Hollywood mystery was lovely and bittersweet.  I couldn’t stop turning the pages to find out what would happen next, and even though I had an idea of what it would be it still packed an emotional punch when it came.  I recommend Windows in Time to anyone who likes ghosts, mystery, romance, the Fifties, or just likes emotional, suspenseful, and well-told tales.
