Book Review-The Refuge (Time Box Book 4)-John A. Heldt

Wednesday, June 2, 2021

It is no secret that I love time travel books. This author adds historical to the mix which makes them even better!! I think I have read most if not all of his novels--definitely the ones in this series--there is a continuity that you will not want to miss.

This time the Lane family goes to Hawaii a bit before Pearl Harbor is attacked by the Japanese. They have learned that Mark's ex partner is going to try to stop this by a day or so to save his grandfather. Of course he sends his hit man to try and accomplish this. If they had not attacked then the Americans probably would not have entered the WW and Germany might have won---

This hit man has been trying to kill off the Lanes for a long time now but does not succeed. The oldest Lane son is going to try and find the hit man and try to kill him--will he manage? Meanwhile his wife is having a baby--his sister is pregnant--and love is in the air for some of them--even the hit man! They are given refuge by a wonderful Hawaiian family! You are going to love all the characters in this novel.

They do manage to escape to another time with an unexpected guest--there is one more book to this series to come--I can barely wait!

I was gifted this book by the author for my enjoyment and possible review.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

From the author of THE LANE BETRAYAL, THE FAIR, and SEA SPRAY comes the fourth novel in the Time Box saga.

Months after stealing two time machines, the Lanes, a modern family of seven, make a stand against the unhinged software mogul who wants them back. They travel to 1941 Oahu to eliminate the billionaire's mercenary, an assassin who has chased them through time.

While son Jordan, a former intelligence officer, stalks his unknowing foe in the streets of Honolulu, his parents, younger siblings, and pregnant wife settle in the village of Laie, where love, friendship, and opportunity await. All seek refuge from the perils of time travel.

Hit man Silas Bain has his own agenda. He hopes to alter the events of December 7, 1941, and indirectly save a brilliant German physicist, his employer's grandfather, from certain death. He has prepared for every contingency, except the charms of a beautiful heiress.

Filled with romance, suspense, and intrigue, THE REFUGE takes readers on a thrilling and memorable ride through the colorful, magical, and dangerous world of pre-Pearl Harbor Hawaii.

Readers' Advisory: The Refuge is the fourth novel in a five-part family saga that spans several decades. While some storylines are resolved, others are not. They will be addressed in subsequent books.
