#BookReview- The Psychology of Time Travel by Kate Mascarenhas #PublicationDayReview #ThePsychologyofTimeTravel

cover140851-mediumGoodreads blurb: “1967: Four female scientists invent a time-travel machine. They are on the cusp of fame: the pioneers who opened the world to new possibilities. But then one of them suffers a breakdown and puts the whole project in peril…

2017: Ruby knows her beloved Granny Bee was a pioneer, but they never talk about the past. Though time travel is now big business, Bee has never been part of it. Then they receive a message from the future – a newspaper clipping reporting the mysterious death of an elderly lady…

2018: When Odette discovered the body she went into shock. Blood everywhere, bullet wounds, flesh. But when the inquest fails to answer any of her questions, Odette is frustrated. Who is this dead woman that haunts her dreams? And why is everyone determined to cover up her murder?”

My Review

I do enjoy a time travel story, not that I’ve read many, but the idea of it really does intrigue me. This was a book that I really didn’t want to stop reading. I had things I needed to do but I kept putting them off to find out what was going to happen next. I loved the whole idea that time travel had become normal, well for a special government department it had, but it was something that truly did exist outside of films, TV and sci-fi books.

Ruby, Barbara, Grace and Odette were wonderful characters, with great storylines and I loved following their stories through time.

The mystery side of this story was really good it kept me guessing, although I had a inkling at what was going on. There was a lot of to-ing and fro-ing with the dates, but I was enjoying the story too much to concentrate on them and work out the big reveal.

I won’t say any more because I don’t want to spoil your enjoyment of it. I definitely recommend it if you like mysteries full of diverse characters.

Thanks to NetGalley and Head of Zeus for my digital copy .

  1. Ohhh I wasn’t sure whether to request this one, but you fully have me logging into NG right now to see if it’s still available. Fab review! xx

      1. I ended up being approved for a version that’s going to be published in 2019 recently, but I don’t think the actual story changes much. πŸ™‚
