This sequel to A Murder in Time has FBI agent Kendra Donovan still in 1815 London, working as a rather unorthodox ladies maid at Aldridge Castle. She strives to downplay her investigative talents; nonetheless, she was instrumental in capturing a serial murderer. Now Kendra plans to return to the stairwell one month from the day she was transported from her own time, hoping the portal opens again and returns her to her former life. In the meantime, Lady Dover is found murdered. The main suspect is Alec Morgan, nephew to the Duke of Aldridge, Kendra's employer. Handsome and charming, Alec is also Kendra's confidant and perhaps soul mate. With his support and standing in the community, Kendra immediately inserts herself into the investigation. Lacking a modern-day forensic lab, she uses her wit and keen observations to solve the puzzle.
VERDICT 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.
