Got through it finally
I felt like the story went no where I was always "wondering where's this going?"
More descriptive narration. When at the climax I still feel like he was reading the story as it was the beginning.
This is a after school special at best.
I'm a big fan of Deborah Harkness and although Emily Croy barker is comparable she has a writing style all her own. She's choppy and ithe story I found didn't flow well. But overall it's ok. Thier are too many books out there to go for a reread on this one.
I didn't find this book as humorous as the Jane series but it was funny. This ghost story was a different from Molly Harper's other books and just as enjoyable. Although I could of skipped the first five chapters and still knew what was going on in the storyline. The plot is slow and predictable right till the climax which of course happens near the end.
Mike you left me hanging man! Where's the rest of the story! I feel used and tossed away. I spent time and energy and you left me with the feeling of being unfinished.
Usually I'm blind to the top books and I pick authors that aren't selling well ( it's an indie thing) but I'm glad I tried this one. I did find it slow going but I enjoyed it.
Yeah I was so glad when this was released in Canada. I love angel she's so honest and her truth telling makes me laugh out loud.
I wanna work for St. Mary's!
"History is just one damned thing after another."
Behind the seemingly innocuous façade of St Mary's, a different kind of historical research is taking place. They don't do 'time-travel' - they 'investigate major historical events in contemporary time'. Maintaining the appearance of harmless eccentrics is not always within their power - especially given their propensity for causing loud explosions when things get too quiet.

so many books start out to slow and challenge the reader to really think things thru this is one of these books - it was time consuming because I kept having to remember the rules to time travel. I throughly enjoyed it thou. It was smart even if it was time consuming.
This book was just as charming and fun to read as the first one was.
Book Two in the madcap time-travel series based at the St Mary's Institute of Historical Research that seems to be everyone's cup of tea. In the second book in the Chronicles of St Mary's series, Max and the team visit Victorian London in search of Jack the Ripper, witness the murder of Archbishop Thomas A Becket in Canterbury Cathedral, and discover that dodos make a grockling noise when eating cucumber sandwiches. But they must also confront an enemy intent on destroying St Mary's - an enemy willing, if necessary, to destroy History itself to do it.

Love this series this book was even better than the first one couldnt wait to read the second one finished the third one in a week ( which is a record for me) preordered the fourth one.
Sent to Troy her long awaited destinations causes her to make a everlasting life changing decision.
This was Shakespeare in 20 first English. Finally I get it! The story is as old as the 15 th century and it still applies today. The narrative at the end is worth listening to.
