Three Sentence Review: Wrong Place Wrong Time

  1. Wrong Place Wrong Time by Gillian McAllister was my pick for our monthly book club and due to its speculative fiction (time travel) genre, I was a little nervous about its acceptance, but it was an engrossing read which was well-received and offered lively conversation.
  2. Unlike Groundhog Day, the story goes back and back and back in time, each waking offers a date preceding the prior which was a format that the author handled well and I really enjoyed.
  3. The murder mystery was interesting but it was the maternal relativity and personal self-discovery as revealed through each time jump that continues to resonate with me.

You certainly didn’t need MY opinion on Wrong Place Wrong Time since it was a Reese’s Pick, but I’m happy to recommend and/or discuss.

About Mary Fran Says

I am an artist, crafter, designer and writer. I enjoy working with mixed media-- applying visual and tactile manipulations to telling a story. Not a lot of market for that, though, :), so I'm focusing on short story submissions and novel completions. Yes, plural. Lots of beginnings, too many ideas, not enough focus.
