Reviews Caught in Time (Kendra Donovan #3)

  • Lori
    I have really, really enjoyed this series. I would love to travel back in time and feel like I live vicariously through all of Kendra’s experiences. McElwain did a great job with the ending to this one... I was really not expecting it! What I like most about these novels is that they are centered almost entirely on crime solving and not romance. If you enjoy who-dun-it’s & time travel then this is a must read series. 5 stars.

    3.5 that I'm rounding up. I like this series, and this was a good instalment for Kendra Donovan, our accidentally time-travelling FBI agent, that progressed some of the larger mystery of Kendra's seemingly random landing in Regency England and of course featured a murder mystery to solve. I continue to be bothered by the fact that she says unsub every five pages because a) it's jarring and surely she's learned to temper her language after months ...

    Kendra today, Kendra tomorrow, Kendra forever.

    This is rapidly becoming one of my favorite mystery series'. It's such a fun mashup of some of my favorite genres: murder mystery, an FBI agent, time-travel.... This volume did not disappoint. Our main character, Kendra, is an FBI agent from our era. In the first volume of the series, she somehow traveled back in time to Regency England. Through some incredible luck, she has managed to land on her feet, under the protection of a very open-minded ...

    Julie strikes again with another amazing Kendra Donovan installment! This book finds Kendra on her way with the Duke to one of his smaller estates, when due to bad weather they're forced to stop at a town they weren't planning to. A murder was committed with the wrong persons accused, so Kendra and the Duke decide to stay and help find the true killer. It has Julie's trademark unforeseen twists and turns with a little extra thrown in which you do...

    Julie McElwain is truly a mystery maven!!!! I can hardly wait for new titles in her Kendra Donovan series, and I've never been disappointed. This third book shed more light on what challenges women faced in Georgian England. In fact, I identified with Kendra's reaction to those restrictions more than I have when reading the earlier books. McElwain's descriptions of the period are spot on. I like reading about it, but I wouldn't want to live there...

    Another great book in the Kendra Donovan series! This time, Kendra and The Duke are traveling to another one of his homes when they are stuck in a small town due to the dense fog. During their stay, a murder at the mill happens. Kendra and the Duke insert themselves into the investigation and are soon followed by Alec and Bow Street Runner Sam Kelly. You may think you have the ending figured out, but the author throws in a twist!Thanks to the pub...

    While the first book in the series is a time-travel novel, the last two are straight-up historical mystery books. Not a bad thing, mind you, I do love historical stories, but it was the time-travel aspect that made me start the series in the first place. I was really hoping it would return in this book. Alas, not yet.Full review:

    Loved it! Totally escapism reading , but I did not see the twist!!!
  • Heather
    Ok I'm going to start with a few general things before I get into the spoilers and all of that because the spoilers aren't hidden everywhere, apparently. Not that it really matters. Anyway, I do love this series. Out of the 'time travel with a 21st century heroine' sort of genre this is probably the best series. This is also the best one to tackle the tough female heroine that doesn't feel too forced. I mean there are faults but in the end it fee...

    Kendra Donovan is everyone's favorite wise-cracking FBI agent who just happens to be stuck in 1815. She is living the life under the generous and curious protection of the Duke and has more freedom than any other woman in the 1800's has in England. Once again Kendra and the Duke find themselves involved in a murder case, going after a killer and getting into one tight spot after another. This series is perfect for those that seek a lighthearted R...

    A well thought out time travel novel. A 21st century FBI agent in 1815 England. In this one, she and the a Duke of Aldridge decide to stay and help solve a murder that may or may not involve Luddites.

    I’m not exactly sure what I’m feeling on the mystery resolution for this one.
