Crossing In Time (Between Two Evils Book 1) by
If someone took everything you live for, how far would you go to get it back?
“Engaging, funny, romantic, and harrowing. This promising series opener will leave readers satisfied.” Publishers Weekly Starred Review
When offered a one-way trip to the past, Isabel sacrifices everything for a chance to change the rapidly deteriorating present–and see her murdered lover one last time. When she arrives twenty years in the past, buck naked and mortally wounded, she has 24 hours to convince a stunned but enraptured nineteen-year-old to change their future. Definitely easier said than done, as success means losing him to a brainy, smart-mouthed bombshell (her younger self), and that’s a heart breaker, save the world or not.

This offbeat tale is about falling madly in love when one is too cynical for such things, letting go of pessimism when it’s the last life jacket on a sinking ship, and racing against the clock when one doesn’t have the proper footwear. It’s a coming-of-age story for old fogeys, a how-to-make-love guide for die-hard celibates, and a laugh-out-loud tragedy with a hopeful twist.
Fall into this edgy, action-packed, darkly comedic, dystopian love story, and be prepared to encounter a finicky time machine, a mysterious seashell, and a very clever dog. Includes some sex, some swearing, some violence, but no vampires and absolutely no ditzes.
