robinb @BookNAround I really enjoy this series because it‘s a bit different. Kendra is a wonderful, strong modern heroine who can handle anything 19th century England throws her way. I‘m one book behind (4th came out in July), and I hope there will be more! 🤞🤞 2mo

Another #seriesread accomplished! The setting is a gritty view of London as contrasted with the bucolic country estate from the first book. While I kind of figured out whodunnit, this was an interesting story. I‘m also surprised and a little amused that Kendra hasn‘t lost her potty mouth by now! 🤣

I am just so in love with this CSI/Downton Abbey-esque detective series. Kendra Donavan is a badass who cuts through the red tape of sexism and aristocracy in a time before women usually did so. Moving on to the next and last one published!

I loved every second of this book! The murderer was a little easier to figure out in this one than the first but there was plenty of suspense and mystery to make up for it. Kendra is easily becoming one of my favorite characters!! 5/5⭐️

Second in the series, this was a good mystery, though I did figure it out by the end. I enjoyed the modern woman in the 1800s parts of the story.

If a book has a pretty dress on the cover, involves time travel, and has romance then there is an 90% chance I will love it! This series has all that plus a murder solving heroine! I love the character of Kendra Donavan, an 21st century FBI agent, stuck in 19th century England. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Sucked me right in. I love the history, characters, twists, all of it. You should read the first book before this one, it is not a good stand alone. Glad the third does not come out for a couple of weeks. I really have school work and work for my job to do...but I could not stop reading.

I liked the second book - Kendra as an FBI agent going back in time lends itself to humor and a good mystery. The romance fanatic in me wants Kendra and Alec to make their relationship work 😀

Yay! This finally came in on my #Overdrive holds. I have been in such a reading slump this month (just very busy and not a lot of motivation), but I am hoping this one will get me back in action. I have been waiting to get this sequel for months, and am super excited to see how the mystery develops in this installment.

Kendra hasn't been able to return to her own time yet, and gets sucked into another murder investigation when Alec falls under suspicion of murdering his former mistress.

An enjoyable read, though I didn't love it. My favorite part of the book is the time travel aspect - as a "foreigner" to the time, Kendra can ask questions and raise issues that the reader may wonder about. It was also a good mystery, leaving me guessing till the end.

Kimberlone I‘ve had the sequel on hold from Overdrive for forever. Can‘t wait to get to it! 2y

I enjoyed the first book in this series a bit more but also glad to learn more about these characters in this second book. Fun read for those interested in historical fiction. I am hoping the next novel focuses a little more on the developing relationship between Kendra and the Marquis.

Without the shock factor of a modern day FBI agent finding herself suddenly thrust into Regency England, this read a lot more like other historical mysteries featuring an "ahead of her time" female sleuth, only in this case it's literal.

Still a great read full of distinct characters but I'm hoping in the next one there's a little more tension/progress with the "how am I getting back to my own time" plot line which wasn't much in this book.

This is a fun series. A modern day FBI agent somehow ends up in Regency England, and has to solve crimes. The mystery was interesting but the best parts are a modern woman dealing with the restrictions of the time. This would be a fun TV show. Now on to the next book.

I love the concept of this series - Kendra, FBI Agent, falls in a wormhole and time travels to 1800s England. She has to reconcile modern norms with cultural norms of the time, while solving murders. But, K seems to think or act in a condescending manner. And, while she is used to 21st century gender norms (equality, for what it is), she fails to recognize similarities in the 1800s. Regardless, these are fun and I'll continue to follow the series.

As it turns out, I wouldn't be an attractive female in London, 1815. #letterT for #LitsyAtoZ was a sequel about a modern FBI agent who time travels, quite by accident, and solves murders, even though she doesn't have the benefit of modern science and basically everyone she meets is all "but you're a woman!"

Ok, so I'm in the middle of 3 other books I don't have time to read right now, but while I have a pre-workout salad and beer (I know, I know, but it's been a day) I just have to read a few pages of A Twist in Time since I pre-ordered it and it came today. I probably should have glanced through the first book to refresh but today, ain't nobody got time fo dat.

Kendra Donavan is still stuck back in time. Alec, her love interest, is under suspicion of murder of his former lover, Lady Dover. Kendra arrived in London to try and solve the murder before it's too late for Alec.

What a fun, quick read! There were numerous potential killers and I wasn't sure who had done it until the end. If you haven't read her previous novel, A Murder in Time, you should pick it up immediately!

Thanks #NetGalley
