The Shimmer

Comparable to Stephen King's 11/23/63, this crisp and compelling time-traveling thriller features a tough-as-nails cop with a sharp sense of perception who is up to par with Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch. Highly recommended for readers seeking a riveting, edge-of-your-seat read.


Celebrating the strength of human and animal ties, this compelling and satisfying novel is similar in spirit to Bruce Cameron's A Dog's Purpose and A Dog's Journey. But fans of time travel fiction such as Diana Gabaldon's "Outlander" books will also enjoy this work's descriptive cultural and historical detail.

How To Stop Time

Aficionados of time-travel fiction like F. Scott Fitzgerald's short story, "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," Audrey Niffenegger's The Time Traveler's Wife, or Diana Gabaldon's "Outlander" series will be drawn to this haunting tale. Haig adds depth to the genre with his rich depiction of one man's reaction as he learns to cope, flourish, and accept his lot in life. [See Prepub Alert, 8/20/17.]

The Outcasts of Time

The period immersion in this unusual tale of time travel and redemption comes close in detail and tone to Jack Finney's Time and Again and From Time to Time, as well as Diana Gabaldon's "Outlander" series. Highly recommended

The Stolen Marriage

Secrets, intrigue, mystery, love, forgiveness, and drama—it's all here. And it is riveting. Chamberlain's (Pretending To Dance) latest novel demands the reader to race, yet savor, the journey to the finale. [See Prepub Alert, 4/10/17.]

The Dream Keeper's Daughter

While not as innovative in developing its time-travel theme as other similar works, Colin's novel touches on romance, mystery, and the supernatural, appealing to fans of Julie McElwain's A Murder in Time and Kitty Margo's Clara's Song.


This fun format offers the best of both worlds, matching up favorite thriller characters within the intense confines of a short story.

A Twist in Time

For the full effect, read the acclaimed series launch before delving into this treasure. The author does not address whether, as a time traveler, Kendra's actions will affect the future, but the intricacy of the plot teamed with the romance between Alec and Kendra make this a nonissue.

Friday on My Mind: A Frieda Klein Mystery

This intricate psychological drama presents various viewpoints as to the identity of the murderer. Series fans will savor this latest addition, but newbies who admire Patricia Cornwell's medical examiner Kay Scarpetta will find Frieda's self-reliance, logic, and intelligence comparable.
