Love in Three Quarter Time
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.

    Hold on, folks, Rachel McMillan has added contemporary romance to her writing repertoire…and I am here for it! Love in Three Quarter Time is a lilting and delightful romance in a setting as rich and decadent as the coffee its central character, Evelyn, is always drinking. Truly, this novella is a love letter to Vienna with Evelyn falling as deeply for the enchanting world around her as she does the man she meets there. (There’s even an extra jaunt over to Prague just for good measure!) I dare yo Hold on, folks, Rachel McMillan has added contemporary romance to her writing repertoire…and I am here for it! Love in Three Quarter Time is a lilting and delightful romance in a setting as rich and decadent as the coffee its central character, Evelyn, is always drinking. Truly, this novella is a love letter to Vienna with Evelyn falling as deeply for the enchanting world around her as she does the man she meets there. (There’s even an extra jaunt over to Prague just for good measure!) I dare you to stop yourself from Googling plane tickets to Europe once you reach The End. I loved every moment of this charming story, swooned over the gorgeous writing and the bits of history tucked inside, and frankly, I’m relieved McMillan has noted this is only the first in a trilogy…because I can’t wait for more!

    A perfect & poignant story of ROMANCE - of history, culture, and the love kind.Sometimes I approach story with routine as a "book blogger", analyzing things along the way. This is a good habit because I have learned to perceive story differently.

This is a good habit because I have learned to perceive story differently. BUT, those rare books that just sweep me up to get lost in the story world are the ones that remind me WHY I love reading. Love in Three Quarter Time is such a story -- an atmospheric and eloquent romance with poignancy and depth.Love in Three Quarter Time is a discovery of self as much as a discovery of culture and history through the heroine's eyes. Evelyn is relatable, introverted, caffeine-dependent, and very likable. Seeing Vienna (and briefly Prague) and its history through her eyes is one thing that makes the story so atmospheric and lovely. As she follows after Rudy and discerns her own heart, she starts to see that her romantic ideal just might be simpler and steadier that the showy dream she thought she wanted. I appreciated the way Rudy fit into the story and had a necessary purpose beyond being a foil for the hero.And then there's Klaus! <3 HE is where the quiet and subtle romance begins to intertwine with Evelyn's journey, with such an eloquence and spirit unique to Rachel McMillan's voice and view of the world. Calling Klaus a gentleman and somewhat of a history nerd (who knows his Shakespeare and Brontë!) is the highest compliment. As Evelyn (and the reader) gets to know him more and more, she sees beyond his shell and into his endearing handkerchief-carrying nature, and he encourages and shows Evelyn her value in a way she has never experienced.This is where the vulnerability and longings of the characters converge: in an idea of romance beyond a relationship between a man and a woman. That it can manifest in a love of travel, a joy found in little things in life like coffee and books and Waltzes, in tidbits of history and the legacy of a place. That romance can be found in life even apart from what we think we need in a "romantic" relationship. Evelyn and Klaus both see life in this manner. When they each realize the other is a kindred spirit that understands this concept without pretense, what results is a heart-stopping and joyous ending fitting for these two. <3This is a book to read with a cup of coffee! I smiled, sighed, and giggled my way through it in just a few hours. I loved the deeper and varied meanings of romance, the shared silence, my personal realization that Rudy was a "Mr. Collins", the pastries and coffee and European history, and the Waltz lessons! Rachel McMillan's heart is in her story, and it's a beautiful work of art.

    I have mixed emotions on this novella. I'm not a huge novella fan, but I enjoy Rachel McMillan's writing style and the cover is lovely so I pre-ordered it.I was a little confused about what was going on at the beginning. Once Evelyn arrived in Vienna I was on track with the story. I enjoyed the overall story of romance and bits of humor.

    Love in Three Quarter Time may be Rachel McMillan's love letter to Vienna, but beyond that it is a love letter to romantics. This is a story for all those who struggle to reconcile the reality of life with the hope of dreams as yet unfulfilled, and perhaps most tantalizingly not yet fully realized. Evelyn is an achingly relatable heroine, and I found myself captivated alongside her, tracing her journey through Vienna's historic streets, falling in love with the romance and history of the city as Love in Three Quarter Time may be Rachel McMillan's love letter to Vienna, but beyond that it is a love letter to romantics.

Evelyn is an achingly relatable heroine, and I found myself captivated alongside her, tracing her journey through Vienna's historic streets, falling in love with the romance and history of the city as she relinquishes her long-held storybook fantasy for a real life fairy tale. This is easily McMillan's best work to date, and I hope she continues to explore this penchant for contemporary fairy tale romances in the future.

I loved reading about placed I've visited in Boston and look forward to one day staying in Vienna.I do not often frequent the romance genre, but was so pleased to make this exception. The novella was a love letter to Vienna as much as it was an homage to living a romantic life whether you have a significant other or not.A perfect read for anyone looking for a cozy Valentine's night in.

I’m talking about “the kind of romance that stretched beyond someone’s lips on her neck or hand in the crook of her arm. The kind that trickled over the rooftops of an age-old city and spun it into a song. The kind of that she found in dusty books and old stories.”Evelyn is a delightful character, and the romance is absolutely sigh-worthy. I don’t want to say more than that, because part of the romance to this story (in the non-relationship sense of the word) is in the way the story unfolds. So, so satisfying. And now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a flight to book...

But truly, I loved it for so many reasons.I've always been a music lover. I played piano and violin growing up and have always been fascinated by the music of Mozart and loved that his home played a role in this book.

I played piano and violin growing up and have always been fascinated by the music of Mozart and loved that his home played a role in this book. And I truly loved Klaus' interesting side job and the lengths he went to in order to be so good at it. I am also a history lover so the historical links in this novella were very well placed and added a little mystery to the story. I'm not very knowledgeable about dance - let alone waltzing - but I did enjoy the dance scenes from the musicality side of things.To be honest it took me a few chapters to get into the story - and since this was a novella that seemed like a little too much - but that being said, once I got into the story I was totally hooked! I really enjoyed the meet-cute of Evelyn and Klaus a lot. I think that was when I started to connect more with Evelyn. I do want to remind anyone reading this review that this is NOT Christian Fiction. It is perfectly clean but it doesn't have a spiritual subplot or overtly Christian characters. But I find I enjoy reading outside of the Christian Fiction genre occasionally. It is a good reminder that there are amazing books and novellas out there that aren't overtly Christian!I enjoyed this first installment in McMillian's newest series. I'm already looking forward to the second novella in the series.I did receive an advanced copy of this novella from the author. However, when I received it I had already pre-ordered the novella on Amazon. This is my honest review.

    I generally dislike novellas. I rarely read them because I love details and complex characters and I love a slow burn romance and that’s not something one usually gets with a smaller word count. However, I make exceptions to my No Novella Rule when they’re written by my favorite authors. It’s unusual for me to enjoy a short romance much less a contemporary romance with a love triangle, but daaaannnng, Rachel McMillan is winning me over to the world of novellas. Holy. Freaking. Cow.

First off, McMillan gave the hero crinkles at the corners of his eyes, his hair peppered with the teeniest bit of grey, AND he’s a flipping history professor. I hope he has a secret dog somewhere, because that is the ONLY thing that could possibly make him more perfect. Sigh. Whatever. I can’t remember the last time I swooned so hard over a not-handsome-but-sexy-as-heck dude. #GivesMeLife Evelyn is divine. A bit shy, of average looks, and an above average romantic. If ever I could relate to a character, it’s her. She’s passionate about old things, too. I like that she never looses her romantic notions, but they change and evolve as she grows. Love in Three Quarter Time is a story I wish could go on forever, but unlike with most novellas, there’s a connection to the characters. In the space of a few chapters, I formed opinions (and attachments!) for each and also felt Vienna and Prague come to life. I’ve never had the yen for Vienna, but suddenly I feel like I should pack a bag and look for my own Professor Bhaer *cough cough* I mean Professor Bauner. Rachel McMillian’s latest series is one that I’ll be tripping over my two left feet to buy as soon as each installment becomes available! ;)I received a free copy of the book. I was not obligated to provide a positive review. All opinions expressed are my own.

Love In Three Quarter is beautiful, lyrical, and pretty insightful if you ask me. It's very much about finding out who you are as it is about love. Romantic in its prose and plot, it's a love letter to Vienna, it's culture, it's food and it's people. And may I tell you I have a slight crush on Klaus, his gruffness, but also his gentleness. In the end, Love in Three Quarter brings you a trip to a beautiful city, a romance that comes to life from the moment they meet, and a story that is short, but sweet."For as much as Vienna can be tasted in coffee and cream, so it can best be experienced with the favored left turn, the whirl of rotation, the pulse of a Strauss tune in three quarter time…"This review first appeared on Just Commonly blog.Disclaimer: I received a digital ARC copy of this book from the author/publisher.

So when I heard McMillan was writing a contemporary romance set in Vienna, I jumped at the chance to read it. I was familiar with McMillan's writing style, so I had a good idea what I was getting into.My favorite aspect of her novella "Love in Three Quarter Time" is the setting. For someone who really hasn't traveled a lot, I really enjoyed how McMillan brings the setting of Vienna to life for me. I even Googled a couple of places she described, so I could look at them with my own eyes, so I had a better visual of these unfamiliar places. I felt like I was walking alongside Evelyn as she traveled to these historical sites with Klaus. McMillan's love for this city and the history shines in every place that Evelyn traveled, and I really enjoyed that.The plot has been done before. How many movies or stories show a girl that leaves what she has to chase a guy? Legally Blonde. Felicity. This novella has the same plot. Eventually, Evelyn realizes something is wrong with the guy she idealizes and finds her true love. On the other hand, I did enjoy this plot line because Evelyn was brave enough to travel to an unknown country to seek something better for her existence, not that I would do that. About seventy-five percent into the novel, McMillan created a twist I didn't see coming and made me sit up and take note. What was going to happen? I couldn't get to the end fast enough.The romance was the best thing of the novel. I enjoyed how McMillan really dug deep into the character's individuality and allows Evelyn and Klaus to see the better side of each other. Their romance was sweet and different. I didn't like Evelyn at the beginning. What girl would travel halfway across the world to work for a guy she has a crush on? They have never been on a date or done anything but work together. She redeems herself when she arrives in Vienna. On the other hand, Klaus was an unique hero. He loved history and reading. He even knew the quotes she pulled from a Charlotte Bronte novel. I don't know many men, besides those in my required English classes in college, who would read a Bronte novel. Klaus was definitely one in a million.I had one issue with the novella. First, I don't understand the caffeinated note to the reader. What does that have to do with the story? When I first started reading the novella, I was confused. After reading the story, it makes sense, but I was lost when the story started.Overall, "Love in Three Quarter Time" by Rachel McMillan is a sweet romance taking place in a foreign country where McMillan invites me into the world of Vienna with a cup of coffee and some foreign food to savor. I believe fans of Susan Meissner would enjoy this novella.I received a complimentary copy of "Love in Three Quarter Time" by Rachel McMillan, but the opinions stated are all my own.

Their relationship is initially combative but gradually over time they are both charmed by the other. Klaus is an old-fashioned gentleman. I didn't warm to him initially as he appeared a little to pompous but by the end of the book he had become a new literary hero of mine.McMillan once again dazzles with her repartee, her whimsy and a love for all things romantic, antique and literary. I loved how she effortlessly combined movie culture with some of the classic tomes of literature as she weaved a love story through the adventures of train trips to Prague, visits to the famous Viennese Opera Ball and the tourist sights of snow-drenched Vienna.Bravo, Rachel McMillan and can it wait for the next instalment, the second in the trilogy.

    I wanted to check out Love in Three Quarter Time because it’s the title twin to one of my own books, and I’m so glad I did! The novella sang like its name. A beautiful tale about the nature of real and lasting love that shines with artistry, culture, and class.

While I enjoyed having the image painted in my mind, there were times that I felt that the scene was set without the extra wording. It's a beautiful style of writing that fits well with the title and the story line, but may not be for everyone.I loved traveling to Vienna through Evelyn's eyes. As I will probably never manage to get there in person, Rachel does a fantastic job of inviting you into the sights, smells, and feeling of the city, drawing you into the characters. And, guys, KLAUS. He's starts a bit like a curmudgeon, you soon learn that he has deeper levels, and you can't help but fall in love with him a little more each page. He's the bookish wounded hero the stuff our dreams are made of.Here's an odd thing: I DON'T LIKE COFFEE. Gasp. I know, but experiencing it through Evelyn's eyes, I almost want to sit down and try all of the different coffees mentioned in the book. If you're a coffee drinker, you'll enjoy this aspect.A note for my regular blog followers and Rachel's readers: this story is a clean reads, but is not considered Christian Fiction. While there isn't a faith theme, I think it does teach some great lessons about life, love, and making assumptions.So, settle in and have a swoon worthy Valentine's Day.I received a complementary copy from the author, but was not required to give a positive review.

A way of engaging with things around you, carefully choosing to fill your life with things, buildings, cities, clothes, books, experiences-that speed your heart up several beats."I am so glad that this novella is the beginning of a trilogy.
