Murder in Time/ Julie McElwain/ 498 pages

Murder in Time written by Julie McElwain was Overdrive's Big Read in July.  The books begins with a gruesome murder in a historical setting.  Kendra Donovan is an FBI agent betrayed by a colleague.  She sets out to right the wrong that has occurred.  While in the process she is transported to 19th century England where she is faced with solving a murder using primitive methods and hampered by being a female.  The story is ok, but what makes it difficult to accept is the author's lack of research into the historical setting.  This book would appeal to people who like Regency historical fiction and Gothic romance.
