When Kendra Donovan’s plan to return to the 21st century fails, leaving her stranded in 1815, the Duke of Aldridge believes he knows the reason—she must save his nephew, who has been accused of brutally murdering his ex-mistress.
Former FBI agent Kendra Donovan’s attempts to return to the twenty-first century have failed, leaving her stuck at Aldridge Castle in 1815. And her problems have just begun: in London, the Duke of Aldridge’s nephew Alec—Kendra’s confidante and lover—has come under suspicion for murdering his former mistress, Lady Dover, who was found viciously stabbed with a stiletto, her face carved up in a bizarre and brutal way.
Lady Dover had plenty of secrets, and her past wasn’t quite what she’d made it out to be. Nor is it entirely in the past—which becomes frighteningly clear when a crime lord emerges from London’s seamy underbelly to threaten Alec. Joining forces with Bow Street Runner Sam Kelly, Kendra must navigate the treacherous nineteenth century while she picks through the strands of Lady Dover’s life.
As the noose tightens around Alec’s neck, Kendra will do anything to save him, including following every twist and turn through London’s glittering ballrooms, where deception is the norm—and any attempt to uncover the truth will get someone killed.
A Twist in Time
This is the second book from Julie but it is my first read. Be prepared that this is a Long read in 62 chapters! Julie did a good job with drawing you in with her descriptions. This story has some Time Travel. This is set in 1815 London. Kendra has a bit of trouble here. It was a bit hard to read this story at first. There are a lot of people in this book. There are the Ton, servants, people who are the scum forgotten and thief takers. Lady Dover has been stabbed 42 times and as Kendra was in the FBI in the future. There are a lot of people with reasons to murder her. I liked how Julie could get away with our time when she spoke their time. This book will pull you in. Alec likes Kendra. The Duke made her his Ward. Alec is his heir. It is hard to put this story down. You won't really need lots of tissues. I liked this book. Now I will look for the first one. There isn't much sex but there is lots of real descriptions of the stabbing. Be warned. Enjoy reading this book! I volunteered to read and review this book.
A Twist in Time
I loved this book as much as the first in the series and look forward to future books.
A Twist In Time
This was thoroughly enjoyable, the well developed characters, the twists and pace along with suspense. It flowed well from her first book and loved the time travel theme.
