Josie Jackson is an unwilling time traveler.. When Josie met Carter in the tourist town of Tombstone, in the old west, he asked her if she would time travel. Thinking this was a hypothetical question, Josie said sure.. This threw her back into the Old West.. that's the first book.... But her travels aren't finished.. After Josie completed her mission in the Old West, and she didn't even know what it was, she comes to in 13th century Mongolia, who the people there assume she's the Goddess Moonshine, because she fell from the sky. This is where she meets Batu, her protector.
Josie assumes she's left there, and works at making a life in this century.

This story was a good follow up, but I did like West better, as I'm more familiar with this era.. But overall, it was still a good story.

Josie is on vacation touring Tombstone with her aunt and uncle, when she meets Carter, who is requesting surveys.. When Carter and Josie meet up later for a drink, Carter asks Josie if she could, would she time travel back in history to save 1 million lives.. Sure.. Unbeknownst to Josie, Carter was serious. After a night of drinking, Josie finds out she's had brain surgery and then wakes up 200 years in the past.
All Carter has told her was to meet 2 people and fit in.. So whoever they tell you you are, pretend to be them.

As Josie goes along, she finds out that maybe Carter isn't really as sweet and trustworthy as he portrayed.

This was an excellent book with a great story.

The narration was ok.. it was slow at first, but I got use to it.

Looking forward to hearing more in this series.

This was the first Robert Thornhill book I've listened to.. and looking forward to listening to more.

When an old deteriorated mansion is purchased, the new owners, Walt and Maggie, want to bring it back to old glory, but along the way, they uncover mystery, after mystery, and a few ghosts. This book was done with humour (Money Pit), as any old house would be, but unfortunately, every previous owner of this home, had a tragic ending.

good story and great narration.

You probably won't like my story. Heck, I'm not sure if I even like it myself. Between getting burned at the stake and being drowned, almost twice, it's quite a lot to swallow. I'm not sure where it all went wrong. Everything was going fine my freshman year of college as a history major. I had a full-time job as a paramedic and any girl I wanted was mine. When tragedy struck our family, I found myself in France with my sister, Jules. And she just had to touch that mirror. She had to get us transported to the middle ages. 1155 A.D., to be exact. What. The. Hell.

Have you ever had one of those books, where when you realize that you are 1/2 way through, or that there is only 5 hours left to listen... That was me with Walking in Time..

Abby is a freshman at college, and wakes up one morning to find herself going back in time.. and not just once.. she keeps going back in the past to different years. Fortunately, there is a kind professor that help her along the way.

This story had everything.. mystery, love, a look at different era's..which a modern girl has a little trouble getting her head around.

All in all, this was a fantastic book with great narration from Marie Chambers.. I especially enjoyed the footnote at the end.

This was a good story and took me back, as I was a teenager in '79.

An old family murder has been unsolved, until the kids find something in the woods, while they are building their summer fort. There was a nice little twist in the end.. I thought I had solved it, but didn't.

Good story and good narration.

Simone Carter has written some great stories and they are all in this bundle.
Lissa Blackwell does a great performance!

These books were good, but listening to them all at once, seem to be the same story.. The stories were good, it was just listening them to all at once, had a lot of sameness.

There were some pretty hot moments in the stories, which I enjoyed, and the men, who are definitely Alpha's, come around in the end.

With her sisters dying wish, Moria asks Rebecca to take her new born son and raise as her own with one promise, never let the father meet him. Rebecca agrees.

Rebecca Davis becomes a mother to her sisters son, much to the chagrin of her Aunt Josephine, a very uptight religious person, who believes Moria got what she deserved for having a child out of wed lock.

Rebecca has another job as well, she help escaped slaves reach freedom. When Rebecca attends her best friends wedding, she believes she meets her rendezvous contact by the flower that he wears.. (she doesn't), but not all is lost, because she falls in love with him.

This was a good story, set in the the 1800's south. There is some romance, misunderstandings, intrigue and some other stuff too.

Karen Rose Richter's performance was very good and enjoyed listening to the story. It went by quite quickly for being 8 hours.

I always like a good time travel story.

Simeon, a Laird in Scotland, has been trapped in a mirror by Isabel the witch, he's been there since the 1600's.
Kat of modern times thief is in Scotland (under the family business), to obtain some artifacts, of one which she stumbles upon is a mirror, with Simeon trapped in side.

Kat steals the mirror, knowing someone is inside, but not quite sure how they ended up there. Mystery and intrigue are afoot.

This is was good story with romance and intrigue.
