If you like your time travel suspense stories you‘ll like this one. Has a little romance. A whole lot of whodunit. This is book one of the Kendra Donovan series. This will be a series I‘ll work on through the summer months that‘s for sure.

1. I‘m fascinated by history, but I don‘t know if I‘d want to live there! So, I‘d want to visit the future and see if we actually get out of this mess.
2. The tagged book is a fun series opener about an FBI agent who gets transported to the past and solves a murder.

@sprainedbrain these are not cozy mysteries but for me they are go to series that I love, and can be formulaic, have a little will they/won‘t they and I can‘t wait for the next book. I have not read After Cilmeri in years- but it‘s up there with the other two. @Laughterhp these are some go to series for me.

I probably should have know a mystery with an FBI profiler thrown back in time who must stop a serial killer without all of the modern crime fighting aids she‘s used to would be too gory for me. That‘s on me. But the historical anachronisms and the way that our former prodigy acts incredibly stupidly to move the plot along is on the author.

4.5⭐️ While it took me a while to get into the book, I really enjoyed it. I think a large part of it was I had just come off of watching another binge watching of the 1995 Pride & Prejudice mini-series. I really liked Kendra and thought she was a strong character and that the world that Kendra had landed in believable. #ebook #timetravel #historicalfiction #fiction #bookstagram #bookreview #2020

This was an entertaining distraction! It felt a bit like Outlander (not as good, mind you) but instead of her being a nurse she's a modern day FBI profiler who finds herself back in time, 1815 to be precise, helping to profile a serial killer before that was even a thing. Not sure what it is about time travel that hooks me, haha. Pretty solid for an impulse library pick - and I love the cover art! I'll continue with the series at some point 👏🏽

This one‘s tricky. I really liked it, read it quickly, and have the next one already checked out from the library. But it was annoying in a lot of ways. (An absurd backstory and REALLY bad attempts at writing dialect come to mind.) But I like time travel novels in general, which by nature requires a certain tolerance for nonsense. I‘m hoping that the next in the series was written with a little more finesse, but prob not. I will read it anyway.

This book was an impulse read for me after bailing on another book and I am so glad I picked it! Time travel has always been a favorite of mine and the 1800‘s another so instantly I knew its right up my alley. Not only the time travel but the characters are also amazing too and I loved every second of it and am going to impatiently wait for my holds on the second and third books. 5/5⭐️

I originally chose this because of the pretty cover (I mean look at it 😍) but enjoyed it so much more than I expected! The present day scenes felt a little obligatory but the dialogue and mystery were SO good. I didn't see that twist coming until it hit! Definitely Dr. Who meets CSI meets Downton Abbey. I'll be reading the next one for sure!

In this time travel murder mystery, Kendra Donovan is a brilliant FBI agent. After a raid goes wrong, she is determined to deliver justice to the man who betrayed her team. But she stumbles into a hidden stairway and emerges in 1815. Before she can figure out how to return to her own time, the body of a brutally murdered young woman washes up on the river‘s edge. Kendra can‘t resist hunting for the killer.

Fast-paced plot that kept me guessing.

@Kimberlone pushed me to read this because it has some of my favorite tropes: time travel, historical, and romance! It was enjoyable, but Kendra violates the number one rule of time travel all the fraking time; try not to constantly bring attention to being out of time. I suppose at least it is the 19th century so she can't be accused of witchcraft like Claire. In fact Claire could give her some pointers! #timetravel #romancy #outlander #1800s

Kimberlone Agreed, Kendra‘s habit of making pop culture references and constantly bringing attention to her strangeness is almost too much. Also the accelerated timeline. Like everything happens in 2 weeks? 5y
Saknicole @Kimberlone haha I hate those crazy fast timelines, it always makes the romance seem a bit weird, like it's the 19th century, have some chill. That other time travel series I read Ruby Red, all three books take place in like a month, it drives me crazy! 5y

FBI agent Kendra Donavan, inexplicably travels back in time to the year 1815, and finds herself heading an investigation for a serial killer.
This book was Pride and Prejudice, meets Criminal Minds and Doctor Who. Very well written, fast paced.

Mehso-so

A fun time travel mystery with a few too many story flaws to totally work for me. My main hesitation is in the main character who is supposed to be a genius but is incapable of trying to fit in so she can make her own life easier until she gets home to her own time. So she is either arrogant or just stupid - both possibilities annoy me.
