Start your review of A Hoboken Hipster in Sherwood Forest Write a review Shelves: books-read , historical-romance , time-travel , romance This was a fun bit of fluff. This one has languished on my TBR shelf for a long time, but I needed a dose of lightness, and this fit the bill. Chrissie is wandering around an upstate NY Ren Faire, looking for her slacker coworker, Kat, when her cellphone rings.
She needs Chrissie to rescue them by notifying This was a fun bit of fluff. She needs Chrissie to rescue them by notifying the gypsy fortuneteller, Nimue. Not really believing, but playing along, Chrissie finds the fortuneteller who confirms everything Kat says. The only way to help is to send Chrissie to the 12th century to retrieve a magic ingredient from King Richard. The next thing she knows, Chrissie is flat on her back in the woods, staring up at Sherwood Forest. Robin is moping around, mourning the loss of his lands and love.
The Merry Men are just hanging around the forest. She then proceeds to whip Robin and the Merry Men into shape, turning them into the legends we know and love, while waiting for the king to show up. It was fun to watch the relationship develop between Chrissie and Robin. Once she gives him that, she also uncovers the good heart inside him.
Unfortunately for her, it also increases the attraction she feels for the handsome outlaw. Things start to look up when she reveals the truth to Robin, and the feelings between them begin to grow. Things get complicated when Maid Marion comes on the scene. Some interesting twists and turns reveal an unexpected side to Marion and put Chrissie in the position of having to save the day.
Yet, underneath her feelings for Robin is the knowledge that once she has fulfilled her quest, she will return to the future. All she wants is to stay in the past with him. The ending was fun and perfectly crafted. I really liked both Chrissie and Robin. Chrissie is a bit down on men at the moment, thanks to her cheating husband.
She comes across a little bitchy at first when it comes to Kat, but that relationship changes as the book goes on. I also liked the way that she finds unexpected inner strength, finally losing her tendency to see herself as a victim. She rocked by the end of the book. Robin started out as a less-than-impressive character. He was just shy of a whiny crybaby, but not by much.
I enjoyed his transformation into the Robin Hood of legend, thanks to his willingness to be guided by Chrissie. I was a little worried when Marion showed up, but he came through that with flying colors. I loved him at the end and how he expressed his feelings for Chrissie.
All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed the book. The basic legend of Robin and his Merry Men was there, with sometimes hilarious twists. Overall, it was a terrific way to escape from reality for a day.
Shes completely disappeared. Then Chrissie gets a cell phone call from her. She says shes trapped in the future. Shes been time-traveling with Sir Lancelot and Queen Guenevere and now theyre all stuck in the twenty-second century, and would Chrissie please come bail them out? Chrissie just needs to check with the gypsy fortuneteller for more instructions. She does note in passing that he does have a rather nice backside, and things develop from there.
The real Richard kind of has the same deep foreign voice thing going on, but in the face he more resembles Roger Moore.

Buy This Book What to do with a book that makes you laugh at the top of the page and want to hurl it into the nearest wall at the bottom? Chrissie, said Hoboken Hipster, finds herself a photographic assignment in a Medieval re-enactment faire. Somewhere along the way her colleague goes missing, she meets a strange gypsy who sets her a quest, and she ends up traveling back in time to 11th century England.
