Bow Street Runner Sam Kelly is called to investigate the grisly murder of Sir Giles Holbrooke, who was left naked and garroted, with his tongue cut out.

    Julie, you have done it again! You have skillfully sucked me into another great murder mystery that had me guess the WHOLE TIME. The writing flowed freely and I was able to finish it in a SNAP! I really appreciate the Kendra Donovan series because of the combination of the regency era mixed with time travel and crime. I think that Betrayal in Time was the perfect edition to the series, setting the the scene with high pace action and shock right a...

    Thank you to Edelweiss for an ARC. This series checks all the boxes for me, historical fiction, mystery, time travel and romance. Julie Mcelwain is a master storyteller, her books are meticulously researched and each one leaves you wanting more.

    I love this series! Thanks to Pegasus Crime for the review copy. Kendra’s 21st century edges have softened a bit now that she’s been in the 19th century for more than six months. But she still can’t shake her penchant for solving crimes...

    Kendra Donovan is an FBI agent from the present who traveled through time, landing in 1816 England. She spent the first three books of the series solving a host of horrible murders, and trying to deal with the culture shock of a totally different world, and this one is no different. I don’t want to spoil anything by giving any more details—just go read these books, because they are great fun. In this book, Kendra is finally introduced to Lond...

    I was gifted an early copy of Betrayal In Time by the amazing writer herself and I loved it(just as I have the other three)!!!!!!!!! Love her writing style and the cloud of mystery she keeps in her stories. Julie McElwain has quickly become one of my favorite historical authors and her Kendra Donovan series is on my list of " must read books". In this fourth installment Kendra has to help solve the murder of Sir Giles Holbrooke who was found brut...

    I love Rebecca. When we first met her in the first book she was smart and kind. It was a shame that her smallpox scars made people treat her cruelly. This book decides to give her a love interest that treats her with contempt because of her social class. Every time the two interacted I flinched because I knew it was going to be 'he hurts you because he likes you' romance. Nothing happened between them in the end but I'm wary of it for the next bo...

    I received this book as an advanced readers copy from Pegasus Books in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.Being a huge Kendra Donovan fan and when I knew there was a new installment in the series, I had to jump at the chance and read it. Betrayal in Time however focuses on how Kendra travels to 1816 to investigate the murder of Sir Giles Holbrooke who was mysteriously murdered in hi...

    With thanks to #Netgalley and the publisher for the ARC. If you have not read previous titles in this series this review contains a spoiler. I first discovered this series by chance via Overdrive; the public library’s e-book and audio book online borrowing system. I’m so glad that I did. While there are many timeslip historical romances there are few which are as good as this series. In this title there is a series of murders to solve; what c...
