This is Julie McElwain’s debut novel, which was selected as a Big Library Read (BLR), the first global ebook club for the period June 23- July 7th. Check out their website http://www.biglibraryread.com. I intend to keep track of these books now that I have discovered the site. I was prompted to read the book from Rochester Public Library’s website. And I was also intrigued that she grew up in rural North Dakota, local!

Story line: 

This novel makes a lovely beach read: it’s a fast pace, easy read with elements of romance, fantasy (time travel), mystery (rather gruesome serial killer) and regency England. Here we have a special ops FBI agent Kendra Donovan, who is thrown into an English castle in 1815. A serial killer has targeted Aldrich Castle and she must use her wits to catch him. There are several moments you have to suspend belief, the killer was a little too easy to figure out, and there are many unanswered questions until you realize this is part of a series. A Twist in Time will be published next spring to continue the Kendra Donovan saga.
