Descripción

Still stranded in 1815, FBI agent Kendra Donovan finds herself on the trail of a vicious murderer with a shocking secret.

October 1815: There is only one place Kendra Donovan wants to travel—back to her own time period in the twenty-first century. But since that's not happening, she agrees instead to travel with her new guardian, the Duke of Aldridge, to one of his smaller estates in Lancashire. Their journey takes them through Yorkshire, a region whose breathtaking beauty masks a simmering violence brought on by the Industrial Revolution, which pits mill owner against worker.

When Kendra and the Duke encounter a band of Luddites on a lonely, fog-shrouded road, the Duke informs the authorities in the nearby village of East Dingleford that mischief may have been done at the local mill. However, it isn't just mischief but murder that is discovered, when the body of the mill manager, Mr. Stone, is found brutally bludgeoned to death in his office.

    Another great book in the Kendra Donovan series! This time, Kendra and The Duke are traveling to another one of his homes when they are stuck in a small town due to the dense fog. During their stay, a murder at the mill happens. Kendra and the Duke insert themselves into the investigation and are soon followed by Alec and Bow Street Runner Sam Kelly. You may think you have the ending figured out, but the author throws in a twist!Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me an advanced readers copy in exchange for an honest review.

    Since FBI Special Agent Kendra Donovan fell through the "wormhole" to Regency era England two months ago, she has thwarted a serial killer and identified the murderer of the former paramour of Alex, the Duke of Aldridge's nephew. In the third novel of this series, Kendra and the Duke's diversion to one of his smaller estates in Lancashire take him to Yorkshire, an area in England being changed by the Industrial Revolution. It is also a time when Luddites conspire to destroy the looms in local mills, the cause of so many workers becoming unemployed. Shortly after the Duke and his ward, Kendra arrives in the English village, the two are called to assist in the investigation of the mill manager, who has just been bludgeoned to death. Although the local marshal is convinced that the man's death is a result of Luddite violence, Kendra is not too sure.As in the first two novels, Kendra investigations continue to be constrained by the gender roles for women of this time period even as she betters others involved in the investigation. She also is conflicted by her love for Alex and desire to be married and her desire to return to her own time. The author continues to add elements to each novel, which continue to make the series interesting. In this one, an event in her past prior to her time travel returns to haunt her. For those who are lovers of historical fiction, this series won't disappoint. Ms. McElwain continue to add elements of life in 1815 England to her stories, especially the difference between the aristocracy and commoners, which helps brings this period to life. If you haven't read the prior two, you can easily read this novel as a standalone, since the author interweaves the protagonist's history within this one.

    I like Alec and the ending really surprised me. I didn't see it coming. I'm always a fan of time travel when they stay in the past, its such an interesting idea, living the rest of your life in the past.
