Great Read!

Loved it!
I'm not one for sci-fi books, but I loved this one!
Once I started I couldn't put it down.
Hoping there is a sequel one day.
Thank you!!

Escape your own life; you need a spatial chronology interruption.

“Edie Donne had never spit in anyone’s coffee.” The reader and Edie immediately bond. Your new friend? ...an everyday, run-of-the-mill, “off-brand barista” with a hilarious commentary on life. It's the 'unremarkable' quality of the heroine that seamlessly transitions the reader to exceptional times, fifty years in the future. ChronoTech targets Edie (apparently at random) and transports her forward fifty years to 2067. Talk about l

Great read

I didn't know what to expect when I started reading this but it turned out to just suck me in. A page turner with lots of twists and turns which I love. Not a full moment in the whole book. Kudos to the author for this fantastic story.

This book is not my typical genre but picked it up on the recommendation of a friend. Even though there is time travel to the future it is not too futuristic. The characters were well developed. There were a couple of plot twists I did not see coming. Found it to be a quick read because I wanted to find out how it would all be resolved.

This book is easy to read and hard to put down. It is a book about time travel. I enjoyed reading this book. It has 3 parts, each part leaving you hungry to know more. Well done Laura Hanks Kline!

I will admit that you will rarely see me pick up a science fiction book of any kind. However, I am so glad I chose this one! The author writes in a way that you can actually feel the emotions of the characters and includes some tough topics beautifully like death, grief and PTSD. The last third of the book I was so engulfed in the story, wanting to know how it ended, that I forgot to eat lunch. The book was in no way predictable, always keeping me surprised and on my toes. Definitely add to your ...more
