So Darn Good
5 out of 5 stars
I picked up and finished Graceless, the first book in this compilation-style series. After finishing that, I knew how this story would go. I was simultaneously right and wrong. In Timeless, the action stayed in one area instead of hopping around to each of the different islands where each character is from. They also didn’t want to write another novella, and this time went for a full-length novel, which paid off because this was great from beginning to end.
Timeless was one of those books that hooked me right from the start. I realized quickly that it would be a book with two different timelines. The present and a past flashback section. It opens with the flashback and then cuts back to it numerous times as the characters start to unravel the mystery piece by piece. I don’t think I’ve said this before with any of the other series from these authors I’ve read, but this had a very Sherlock Holmes vibe. And not just its relation to the Baker Street Robbery (which I ended up looking up on Wiki after finishing the book), but just the overall vibe of trying to fit pieces together from the past. Trying to rule people out depending on motives and other pieces of evidence.
Timeless had an emotional aspect to it that I can’t say is missing from the other books, but this one had a real tear-jerker version. The kindness that Eddie was shown and the amount of help and his reactions to it were… Priceless (probably another title of a book in this series soon). Timeless was a blast from beginning to end. This time, less jumping around distance-wise and more time-jumping, but overall still a great book combining the likes of four different characters into a cohesive piece that felt like it was meant to be that way from the beginning. It’s crazy that these authors can put in that many “main” characters and not have them feel like they’re stepping on each other’s toes.
Some family bonds are timeless….
A plane crash in 1976 left a young boy without a father, but 46 years later, when Eddie Rains loses his mother, a letter hidden among her possessions reveals a secret she’d kept to herself all those years.
Driven by hope, Eddie sets out to discover the truth about the man he dearly loved yet barely knew. Aided by strangers he meets along the way, his challenging search turns deadly when one thing becomes crystal clear…he’s not the only one looking.
In their follow-up collaboration to the best-selling Graceless, Stinnett, Cunningham, Sullivan, and Harvey come up with another suspenseful thriller featuring characters from each of their series.
