Summary

In this twisting time-travel thriller, a woman faints on the eve of her wedding and awakens at the turn of the century in her grandmother’s body  The night before her wedding, Shay Garrett has no idea that a glimpse into her grandmother’s antique Chinese mirror will completely transform her seemingly ordinary life. But after a bizarre blackout, she wakes up to find herself in the same house—in the year 1900. Even stranger, she realizes she is now living in the body of her grandmother, Brandy McCabe, as a young woman. Meanwhile, Brandy, having looked into the same mirror, awakens in Shay’s body in the present day to discover herself pregnant. Did Shay die and get reincarnated as young Brandy, who is about to get married herself? The answer is far more complex and bizarre than either woman can imagine.   Shay’s mother, Rachael, weaves back and forth between the two time periods in this riveting story of three headstrong women grappling with identity, love, and family drama. From courageous, compassionate Shay, who suddenly finds herself fighting against the confines of a society decades away from women’s liberation, to Brandy, struggling to adapt to a more modern world, Millhiser’s strong characters are up to the task presented by this imaginative yet humorous adventure.   This extraordinary novel is both a fascination tale of time-travel suspense and a journey to the heart of the bond shared by three generations of women. It is a tribute to survival, and to the triumph of the female spirit in the face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles.

    In this fifth book in the Dekker Cozy Mystery Series, rumors abound that the two people who turned up missing after the high school reunion might not have run away together, but could have been murdered.  Lt. Dekker and Sgt. Murdock will not become involved unless the missing couple's bodies are found, but then Lt. Dekker might not become involved even if that happens.  The doctor who gives all the physical examinations for the police department has told Lt. Dekker that he had gained weight, and he must lose all that he has gained, plus five more pounds in order to work on the case, should there be one.  Lt. Dekker is not eager to lose weight, because losing weight means he will have to exercise and cut back on what he is eating, neither of which pleases him.  So, he is in a quandry.

    To fulfill an ancient rite of vengeance, two druids descend on New York CityOut for kicks on a dull summer night, a few Puerto Rican boys wander Central Park.

By the time the police arrive, two boys have been slashed to death, and their right hands cut from their bodies. Rupert and Rowena Comfort are druids, keepers of a religion that is older than civilization itself. For thousands of years they have lived in secret in the wilds of England, until the day that five Americans happen on their village and steal the book of shadows—a witch’s tome passed down by the druids for millennia.
