In Times Like These -stand alone w/spoilers 🤔

Nathan VanCoops is quite the visual writer! I’ve got to mention that listening to Neil Helegers was quite comfortable. She provides just the right amount of “emotion” to the story.
This story is so good, if I hadn’t heard of the In Times Like These series I’d have to scramble to find others. It will behoove you to read the first ITLT story like Nathan warns about “spoilers“. I did enjoy where the earlier stories coincide with this one though.
Good mystery as you flip your lid following Stella as she meets her first time traveler and ALL that entails.
All I can say is more more more👏

My only complaint is that I wish it were longer!

Nathan Van Coops has a real talent for world building, which comes in handy when the potential for countless time streams becomes possible in the "In Times Like These" series. I was excited to see a book inserted between books 1 and 2 in the series, and hope there will be more! My only complaint is that this audiobook was 4 hours. Why not 8? 10? I'll take all I can get in this wacky universe.

In this betweener story, we aren't experiencing time travel alongside a character. We get to view the idea of time travel and futuristic ideas through the observant eyes of an ambitious FBI Special Agent, investigating impossible happenings. As if she didn't already have a whole bucket of crazy and misogyny to deal with -- this is happening back in the 1980s-90s -- now she needs to accept the improbable and then convince others of the same. In a not-so-distant time when women were still being told to smile, because it makes them look prettier (such a priority!), Stella York carries the burden of proof of time crimes on her feminine shoulders, where most "manly" men would only see hysteria.

Watching, in bits and pieces, the wild ride of time travelers popping in and out of various times past was fun. Plus, I'm glad to have the perspective that comes with remembering that era. I was in tech as early as the late 1980s, still am today, but it's been a long time since anyone called me "sweetheart" in the office.

For the audiobook, narration by Kylah Williams was all right, not great but definitely not bad. She left me wondering in which part of the US people pronounce it "eee-mediately".

detective and time story

I have read the book, and when I realised I could also listen to it, I grabbed the chance. The story mixes the attitude of the 80s towards minorities, working women, time travel, caracteres from the authors other books, with murder, mysteries and action. I love it!
The narration by Kylah Williams is very suitable for the Voice of agent Stella, and it's sympathetic to the story.
All-in all a good listen to.

Another perspective on this time travel universe

Having read the other books in Nathan Van Coops time travel universe it was fun to see the world from a different perspective.

I loved the characters and though not a long book there was a lot packed in.
