Pump Up Your Book is pleased to bring you L.D.C. Fitzgerald’s Saving Jackie K virtual book tour December 2 – 27! For a list of the other bloggers participating please click here.

It has been 50 years since the assassination of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy was assassinated. Conspiracy theories have always been conjectured about what really happened. I am not at all surprised to see many books coming out revolving around those conspiracy's. In this one, it was Jackie Kennedy who was murdered in Dallas on that fateful day.

It is 2013 and the world is not what you would call in a happy state--it was a mess!! When two scientists figure out time travel they decide to travel back in time and attempt to stop this heinous crime which caused JFK to effectively put policies into place which were unconscionable. Real names were used throughout this fictional novel--but those people were not in the positions they actually hold or held.

They meet up with 6 other misfits of the times and time travel back to try and change history. Some if not most of their escapades are mad cap, since not one of them truly knows what they are doing. Enter the KGB and J. Edgar Hoover and things really start to get complicated.

Do they make it back to 2013, do they stop the murder of Jackie K and do they ultimately make the world a better place then what it was? Read the book to find out!
