In Time for You by Chris Karlsen Review Tour and Giveaway :)

Welcome to my tour stop for In Time for You by Chris Karlsen. This is a historical romance with time travel and is out now. Check out the tour page for the full schedule.

In Time for YouAbout the Book:

While horseback riding in the English countryside, sisters, Electra and Emily Crippen find themselves trapped in a tear in time. Thrown back to 1357 England and caught by a local noble, they are in a place that is home but as frightening and unfamiliar as an alien world would be. With no idea how the tear in time came about, the one thing they do know is: they must stay together and stay near to where the event took place in hopes of discovering the way back to their modern life. That certain need to stay together is the first certainty taken from them when one sister is forced to remain in England and one is sent miles away to Wales by royal order.

There is one other hope for help the sisters don’t know exists. It’s Electra’s lover, Roger Marchand. A time traveler himself, he never told her of his past. When he realizes what has happened to the sisters, he enlists the help of a scientist friend to help him open the suspected passageway through time. Any effort to save Electra and Emily will likely cost him his life. This was the time Roger came from, a time when his country, France, was at war with England. If he is discovered on English soil while searching for the sisters, he will either be killed or taken prisoner of war. Any risk is worth saving the life of the woman he loves. 

***My Personal Review***

I found this to be a great book, I loved the setting of going back to medieval times and then really loved how the author connected the past to the future and how everything started to make sense.  Emily and Electra are just awesome characters - strong and charismatic on their own without men.  That is exactly what I like to see in a story - women who can take care of themselves and think for themselves.  And the way they are so intelligent and start connecting the people they know from their time with the time they are in is amazing.  I am a HUGE English literature fan and so the setting was a huge plus for me in the book.  But how the girls handle it and are able to help themselves out of situations is wonderful.  I think the characters of Emily and Electra are far more complex and developed than the rest until about midway through the book and then we start to see a lot more of Roger and how he figures it out and tries to get back to help them.  I found a lot of twists and turns I did not expect in this book which is what makes it fun and exciting!  I highly recommend this book to anyone as it is awesome :)  Definitely right up my alley as I am in love with historical fiction and this sort of fits that bill in a way.  I have not read the first 3 books, but I am definitely reading them now that I see what a great series this is!

I received a complimentary ebook in exchange for my honest review of this book.


About the Author:

I was born and raised in Chicago. My father was a history professor and my mother was, and is, a voracious reader. I grew up with a love of history and books. My parents also love traveling, a passion they passed onto me. I wanted to see the places I read about, see the land and monuments from the time periods that fascinated me. I’ve had the good fortune to travel extensively throughout Europe, the Near East, and North Africa.

I am a retired police detective. I spent twenty-five years in law enforcement with two different agencies. My desire to write came in my early teens. After I retired, I decided to pursue that dream. I write three different series. My paranormal romance series is called, Knights in Time. My romantic thriller series is Dangerous Waters. The newest is The Bloodstone Series. Each series has a different setting and some cross time periods, which I find fun to write.
I currently live in the Pacific Northwest with my husband and four wild and crazy rescue dogs.
