Beautiful and brilliant, Kendra Donovan is a rising star at the FBI. Yet her path to professional success hits a speed bump during a disastrous raid where half her team is murdered, a mole in the FBI is uncovered and she herself is severely wounded. As soon as she recovers, she goes rogue and travels to England to assassinate the man responsible for the deaths of her teammates. While fleeing from an unexpected assassin herself, Kendra escapes into a stairwell that promises sanctuary but when she stumbles out again, she is in the same place - Aldrich Castle - but in a different time: 1815, to be exact. Mistaken for a lady's maid hired to help with weekend guests, Kendra is forced to quickly adapt to the time period until she can figure out how she got there; and, more importantly, how to get back home. However, after the body of a young girl is found on the extensive grounds of the county estate, she starts to feel theres some purpose to her bizarre circumstances. Stripped of her twenty-first century tools, Kendra must use her wits alone in order to unmask a cunning madman. ~Book jacket.

I agree with YourFunLibrarian’s review. It’s not about time travel, but about a person out of place. Good read. Recommended series.

Clever premise of an FBI agent going back in time and helping on a murder, but it reads really slowly and the discussions of time travel feel forced and clunky.

So good! I never expected to enjoy this book as much as I did especially after a slow couple of chapters! But all of a sudden I was hooked on it! I was almost late to work one day because I simply could not put it down. I love the idea of pitting a modern day profiler against a 19th century criminal it's amazing how this book came together!

An enchanting time travel mystery romance set in 19th Century England in which a 21st Century female FBI agent attempts to find a heinous serial killer without modern science at her fingertips. 1st title in Kendra Donovan series.

I initially was put off by the first chapter of this book - but, push on, my friend, and you won't be disappointed! Kendra Donovan is an independent, intelligent, and disciplined FBI agent when she travels through a time warp to land herself in 1815. I'm sure some people could find fault with plot authenticity and historical accuracy, but forget all that. This is a fun, clever, mystery novel that I found refreshingly different from the usual mysteries I read. Recommend!

I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this story! I find that time travel hurts my brain, so I appreciated that the author made sure our heroine had the same difficulty.
An FBI profiler time travels to the 19th century and she had to try to adapt to the time period. This does not go well at all. She is more independent, strong-willed, and too knowledgeable for the time period. She uses her skills as a profiler to find a murderer that is terrorizing the party happening at the house she is at. But at the same time trying to stay under the radar (sort of).
A tiny hint of romance, that hopefully will be expounded on as the series progresses.

While the writing is uneven, I enjoyed the premise of this time travel mystery. I’ll be reading book 2 for sure.

Very cool premise, but as other commenters have stated, the execution was a little iffy. Like cool ideas about time travel, but I feel that the menfolk would have sent a lady claiming to be from the future to an asylum. As long as you're on board about suspending your disbelief about many plot points, it's a fun read.

What I loved about this book was the combining of genres -- Sci-fi, thriller, mystery and a bit of romance. It was like Quantum Leap meets Alias. With a strong female character who time travels back from present time to the early 19th century and a murder to solve, it was a fun ride. There are flaws that are addressed in some of the other reviews, but once I started reading I was hooked so I give hit an extra star for the unputdownable factor. Looking forward to discussing it with our book group.
