Has anyone read "Le Temps Viendra"?

Le Temps Viendra by Sarah Morris

I spotted this book on Amazon the other day and thought the plot sounded really interesting - a modern day woman obsessed with Anne Boleyn, who is transported back in time and ends up in Anne Boleyn's body in 1527. I know I've thought about what I would do in Anne's situation, though I'm not sure if my curiosity about seeing what everyone at the Tudor court was like would override the obvious need to get the hell away from there, fast!

Anyway, I really want to give it a read but the only thing is it's quite expensive, even on Kindle, and I'm not sure I can justify it with the long, long backlog of other books I have waiting. Also it appears to be the first in a series. So, I'm wondering if anyone here has read it and can say whether it's worth it? It does seem to have excellent reviews on Goodreads, but I always get a little suspicious when a book has almost a completely 5-star rating. I think with a plot like that, it could be either brilliant or terrible.
