I did enjoy the book, but there were a few issues with the book as I saw it. Supposedly a brilliant child prodigy, Kendra Donovan graduates from Princeton at the age of 18. She also becomes the youngest field agent to be accepted by the FBI, but there is nothing in her actions in 1815 that reveal her brilliance. Her coarse language was also a problem. There was also something missing: seeing as someone was transported 200 years into the past it would seem that more would be brought up about the time travel part of this book. Perhaps in the next book.
No doubt, Kendra is an intelligent woman, and it is interesting how she uses 21st century thought to solve a 19th century crime using 19th century tools..
Interesting is one word to describe the book, and interesting enough to read the next book, A Twist in Time.
While I enjoyed it, for the reasons mentioned above I can only give it 3/5 stars.

When brilliant FBI agent Kendra Donovan stumbles back in time and finds herself in a 19th century English castle under threat from a vicious serial killer, she scrambles to solve the case before it takes her life—200 years before she was even born.
Beautiful and brilliant, Kendra Donovan is a rising star at the FBI. Yet her path to professional success hits a speed bump during a disastrous raid where half her team is murdered, a mole in the FBI is uncovered and she herself is severely wounded.
