My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Generally, I am not a big fan of time travel, but the premise of this book intrigued me. From the beginning, I was immersed in the story, and I found myself thinking about this book when I wasn’t reading it. I just had to know how it was going to end! The authors did an amazing job of crafting a tale that answers the question: “What if …” Want to know the answer? You have to read the book!

One word of caution–there is quite a bit of profanity in the book. While I could have done without the profanity (it increased as the book intensified), I was willing to overlook it to ultimately reach the end of the book. And just so you know–you do need to suspend reality as you know it in order to read this book. However, very clever (and true) historical details are also included. Trust me–the authors did their research and even updated this volume to make things run more smoothly and make more sense.

I was not around during the time of JFK–I wasn’t even born yet. But this book made me look at this time in history differently than I ever have. It also made me glad that time travel is not a possibility. I really don’t want to go back in time and risk changing the future!

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

    Ruth – Thank you SO MUCH for the wonderful review! We’re thrilled that you enjoyed the book so much and even read it over a holiday weekend! (I do agree about the profanity–unfortunately, some of the characters we dealt with in this story were not very nice people at all, and that is exactly how they would, and did, talk. And making the story seem as real as possible was our top priority.)

      Yes, I do agree concerning the profanity. I will say that the profanity was only used by those unsavory characters. But I always warn my readers about it because some people don’t want to read books that contain any profanity whatsoever. I always like to know the degree of profanity in books I have chosen to read as well. It was a fantastic read in spite of any issues, however! Not bad coming from one who does not generally like time travel books.
