You know I pick up anything Kelley Armstrong writes. I’ve been a huge fan of her paranormal stories years back and more recently even her gothic mystery romances. I picked up this book thinking it was in some way related to those. So first let me say, this is a new series and it has nothing to do with that. So go into this expecting a whole new story and not like me. That being said, I quickly jumped into this story and was hooked from the start.

Our heroine Mallory is a homicide detective in today’s time. While out for a jog she hears a woman being attacked and finds herself the likely victim of a serial killer. Except she doesn’t die and instead wakes up in 1869 in the body of a young housemaid in Victorian Scotland and serving an undertaker who also moonlights as a medical examiner. After the shock, she tries to get back to her time by helping him solve a series of crimes.

I had so much fun with this time travel mystery. And if I’m honest, I loved the slow burn of the “romance”. There is no actual romance in this book, but it is being setup for something to happen in the series I think (or I hope). Perfectly executed. The characters have a lot in common but also undeniable chemistry even when they shouldn’t be attracted to each other. And there’s a great cast of supporting characters in this one as well.

For fans of the In Death series with a dash of Outlander, this will be the book for you! I personally can’t wait to read more from this series.

About Kelley Armstrong

Kelley Armstrong has been telling stories since before she could write. Her earliest written efforts were disastrous. If asked for a story about girls and dolls, hers would invariably feature undead girls and evil dolls, much to her teachers’ dismay. Today, she continues to spin tales of ghosts and demons and werewolves, while safely locked away in her basement writing dungeon. She lives in southwestern Ontario with her husband, kids and far too many pets.
