Book Review-Crown City (Time Box Book 5)-John A. Heldt

Friday, December 10, 2021

I love time travel books especially those with history. John Heldt is an author who always delivers. This one in particular had me reading non stop since I actually lived through most of what occurs in this novel. I was 10 in 1960 and 19 in 1969--it was certainly an interesting era!! So much was changing and happened within those years.

This is the last of the Time Box series and I am sorry to see it go. I am sure that this author has another one coming and I will be sure to read it! There are no loose ends--well maybe one or two. But then history is ever changing-but at least this family had a happily ever after!

If you have never read a novel by this author (and there are quite a few) I suggest you go get one now--In my opinion you will be hooked!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

From the author of the critically acclaimed Time Box series comes the dramatic conclusion of a story that spans a century.

Two years after stealing portable time machines, the Lanes, a family from the present day, stop running and start living. They settle in the seaside town of Coronado, California, in 1963.

For Jordan, Laura, and Jeremy, the oldest children, the respite is a chance to nurture relationships, start families, and explore the country. It is an opportunity to put down roots.

For Ashley, the youngest, it is a chance to thrive. Now fourteen, she is ready to start high school, make friends, and make up for lost time. She finds popularity and more after a classmate nominates her for freshman homecoming princess.

Robert Devereaux could not care less. The deranged billionaire wants his time machines back and is willing to do anything to get them. He sends a hit man to the past, setting into motion a final confrontation between a hunter and his prey.

In CROWN CITY, the suspenseful finale of the Time Box saga, a defiant family finds romance, friendship, and danger as it navigates the final months of the Kennedy presidency.
