A good read. Not as good as the first book in this series. It seemed a bit bland compared to it. A murder at the Old Bailey with a list of suspects that all have a good motive. The characters however seemed a bit under done especially the main character. You could visualise all the others but I couldn't see her.
Her Gram wants her to enter an arranged marriage and her refusal leads her to having her allowance cut off and no way of earning a living. A delivery of a mysterious ...more
Flick dreams of escaping all things mystical. But Gram has other plans. Felicity (Gram doesn’t like the name Flick) is to marry an important warlock and think of continuing the lineage. Yes, that means a daughter must be conceived. To avoid that scenario, and be independent, she needs a job. But that proves to be difficult, seeing as she’s got zero work experience. Then an opportunity presents itself. The Agency of Paranormal Peculiarities. And they ...more
An interesting concept and overall a good story with refreshing character development.
However, I felt some of the story got lost in its plot holes. I wish we could have gotten more of a story as to what happened to Flick’s special power as the story progressed. Also, the description of the time change, between Flick’s present and where she travelled to, left a little to be desired.
Had some of these questions been answered I think the overall predictability of the story could ...more
We meet Flick and she is having a "devil of a time". Flick has powers but does not want to use them. If she doesn't use them she'll be cut off from her family. She decides to take a job with the Agency and she is sent back to 1999 to solve a cold case and she only has 7 days to do it!

Flick is such a cool character. You immediately feel for her and the expectations her grandma has for her. The supporting characters are truly unique!!!!!! I fell in love with her buddy ghost Newgate!!!!!!! Every time I thought I had it figured out there was an amazing twist in the story that was unexpected!!!!!!! The time travel mystery solving witches is a stupendous idea!!!!!! I can’t wait for the next book!!!!!
I enjoyed reading this book very much and the actual murder mystery was tidied up very nicely. I was left with lots of unanswered questions about the main character Flick though so I really hope this co-authored series continues past the original 5 books to answer them.
When a young, hated, man is murdered in the poorest part of London, it isn't shocking for it to go unsolved. Enter the Time-Traveling Witches, Felicity, to solve the cold case. She meets some interesting people, and spirits, along the way, and solved the case.
A interesting premise with top notch writing.
I highly recommend this book.
I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
