There is no lapse of action in Timelapse by Lorrie Farrelly. In fact, my husband and I had a Kindle war over it. We share an Amazon account, but read on separate iPads. Since we have our account set-up to sync books across devices, we were always losing our places in our individual books. We didn’t figure out that we were reading the same book until he finished Timelapse. We usually have different tastes in books, but this one appealed to both of us.
Professor Alex Morgan, widower, single-dad, and an up and coming academic at Capitol University in Georgetown, happens to find a time travel device. Alex has grown used to focusing on his son, his mom, and his career. This all changes when he begins to travel through time.
Alex soon meets Jessica O’Neil, who is about to be executed. Jessie and Alex find love when they both least suspect it. When he saves Jessie from certain death, Alex begins to fall in love with her. Jessie does not return his affection immediately. In fact, she is frightened of him at first, and fears that he may be insane. She soon learns to believe him and the two become partners and crime-fighting allies in a harrowing attempt to prevent an assassination.
Timelapse sort of reminds me of Stephen King’s November 22, 1963. Like King’s book, it is full of twists and turns from start to finish. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys time travel fiction or action and suspense.
