It’s every parent’s nightmare.

Your happy, funny, innocent son commits a terrible crime: murdering a complete stranger.

You don’t know who. You don’t know why. You only know your teenage boy is in custody and his future lost.

That night you fall asleep in despair. Until you wake . . .

. . . and it is yesterday.

Every morning you wake up a day earlier, another day before the murder. Another chance to stop it.

Somewhere in the past lie the answers, and you don’t have a choice but to find them . . .

A Stunning, Earth-Shattering Read!

Took my breath away!

Like many parents, Jen finds herself unable to sleep until her son comes home; when he does arrive, she witnesses him committing a murder then being arrested and detained in a jail cell. Jen doesn’t think she will ever sleep again – but she does, and when she opens her eyes, she finds it is the day before. Completely thrown and deeply puzzled, Jen realises that this may be her opportunity to find out exactly why the events of the previous (or next) evening happened . . .

There are some writers who produce series of novels which, although entertaining and each with a different plot, are a bit formulaic – however no one could ever accuse Gillian McAllister of that. Every one of her novels has taken me by surprise and this one more than any other! I began reading Wrong Place Wrong Time wondering what it was about and, as I continued, thought it an impossible scenario; very soon I change that to improbable and before too long I was accepting waking up each day going further back in time as not only possible but normal! This is an earth-shattering read; the time changes begin to be acceptable because there is so much more to focus on. I admit to working some – but not all – of it out. This is one author who can keep me glued to each and every page and has me gasping in surprise several times over. Shocking, stunning, but somehow it all made sense in the end and I could finally get some sleep. A novel which demands you set your life aside and devote every minute to it until you reach the final page. If you’re not completely awestruck, then go back and start at the beginning because you’ve missed something. A glittering, glowing triumph and that ‘something different’ novel which all readers are in search of. Easily worth my highest recommendation and commanding every one of the five glowing, sparkling stars I’m more than happy to give!

My thanks to the publisher for my copy via NetGalley; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
