What I'm Reading Wednesday: "A Murder in Time," by Julie McElwain

Welcome to What I'm Reading Wednesday! This week, I am thrilled to be reading...

A Murder in Time
by Julie McElwain

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. As soon as she recovers, she goes rogue and travels to England to assassinate the man responsible for the deaths of her teammates.

While fleeing from an unexpected assassin herself, Kendra escapes into a stairwell that promises sanctuary, but when she stumbles out again, she is in the same place -- Aldrich Castle -- but in a different time: 1815, to be exact.

Mistaken for a lady's maid hired to help with weekend guests, Kendra is forced to quickly adapt to the time period until she can figure out how she got there -- and, more importantly, how to get back home. However, after the body of a young girl is found on the extensive grounds of the county estate, she starts to feel there's some purpose to her bizarre circumstances. Stripped of her twenty-first century tools, Kendra must use her wits alone in order to unmask a cunning madman.

I can't get enough of this book! I tore through the first 250 pages of this book in one weekend. It is amazing! What are you reading this week?
