In 1967, four female scientists worked together to build the world's first time machine. But just as they are about to debut their creation, one of them suffers a breakdown, putting the whole project--and future of time travel--in jeopardy. To protect their invention, one member is exiled from the team--erasing her contributions from history. Fifty years later, time travel is a big business. Twenty-something Ruby Rebello knows her beloved grandmother, Granny Bee, was one of the pioneers, though no one will tell her more. But when Bee receives a mysterious newspaper clipping from the future reporting the murder of an unidentified woman, Ruby becomes obsessed: could it be Bee? Who would want her dead? And most importantly of all: can her murder be stopped?… (mais)

If you don't like your novels to skip and jump from one character/timeline to another, then this isn't the book for you. I found it an enjoyable read, and woud even say, in a way it's verging on being a cosy mystery. I will definitely be reading more from this Author. ( )

a sci-fi story populated by a bunch of strong females and delving into the consequences of time travel that other media usually dont (e.g., how it affects law enforcement, economics, culture, relationships, mental health, etc). there's also a murder mystery that gives you twists just when you thought you had it figured out. loved this book ^_^ ( )

You ever pick up a book and read it, and realize that it’s not what you expected, but you’re totally loving it anyway? This is exactly my experience with this book.
This book has most everything that you can want in a story – murder, mystery, time travel, (surprise) lesbians, and romance. This book has one of the most well written time travel stories I have ever read, and I need more people to read this book so that it can eventually be made into a TV show, because it definitely deserves it.
The story, since it is about time travel, takes place in many different time periods, with stories intertwining in a common middle ground where everything converges. The earliest point of the story is fifty years prior to said middle ground, in a past where four female scientists have actually created time travel. Not only created it, they’ve perfected it and made it safe to use. And fifty years later, time travel is a common part of life. Not everybody can do it, because that would be disastrous. But there is a specialized group of people who basically work with time travel. We’ll call these people The Time Police, for the sake of this review. The Time Police use their time traveling to do two things particularly well – they solve unexplained murders before they happen, and they conserve extinct species in a specialized lab. It should be noted that the users cannot time travel beyond the fifty years when time traveling was created, because they need a time travel unit to be able to travel back to their home-time. So people can only travel as far as time travel exists into the past or future (it is semi-implied that there is a future beyond what they can access, but it’s never really gone into).
The main story revolves around three main female characters – one of the women who invented time travel, her granddaughter who she is very close to and falls in love with a time traveller, and a new member of The Time Police who joins in an effort to help solve a murder she was witness to.
What I love about this book, without giving away too much about it, is that it has a very clever way of touching on themes such as racism (one of the characters if second generation Seychelloies), death, trauma, and narcissism (and how deadly it can be). The story is incredibly enthralling and written very very very well. It honestly took me through twists and turns that I wasn’t expecting, and I loved every second of it.
If you’re looking for a good, thought-provoking read, this is definitely the book for you. I give it a full 5/5 and recommend it so highly. Please grab a copy of the book (especially this version because the cover art is so pretty). ( )

4 stars

Time travel is a pretty ambitious choice for a debut novel. I went into this determined not to nit pick the logic and for the most part succeeded, but this was not the best take on time travel out there (not even close), even though I appreciate the author's effort.

- The writing was decent
- The characters were believable
- The mystery kept me invested, even though it didn't exactly have me on the edge of my seat
- I usually dislike non-linear narratives, but if it's ever justified, it's in a time-travel novel
- Some of the sub-plots felt unnecessary

Four stars feels a bit generous, but in the end I did finish this in one go, and while I doubt I'll ever re-read this book, I also don't regret it. I'll be interested in Mascarenhas' future work, because for a debut this was more than sufficient.

Interesting story that puts a series of interesting and driven women at the forefront. I enjoyed the speculation on how time travel would impact on elements of everyday life like tax laws – people declaring their income during low tax regimes – employment laws, or children’s toys. ( )
