A nice listen.

The concept of time travel is fascinating fodder for writers and readers. No matter how carefully the writer tries to cover the bases, I'm always left with those "but what about..." questions that are fun to puzzle over after the book is finished. This was simply a nice read. I really wish there was a 10pt rating system, because I have scored some much better books with four stars, but this one is better than three stars. Let's say this would be a 7 out of 10 stars.

The story gets right to it. There's a time travel love scene in the first few minutes and the rest of the book is built on that encounter. Katherine is a likeable character, but not very complex. Iain is a handsome sixteenth Scottish Laird who is kind and brave etc. You have to have a soft spot for him because he actually gets very emotional contrary to the stereotypical Scottish romance hero. The story switches back and forth from Iain's time to the present, a device that can be confusing, but I thought the author handled it quite nicely.
A secondary romance develops between Katherine's brother Jeffrey and friend Elaine. This relationship is superfluous except that it does provide a necessary link at one point.

The story comes to a nice ending and is wrapped up with a handy dandy epilogue.

The narrator does a good job providing a variety of Scottish character's as well as Katherine and Jeffrey's American voices.

This is just about the romance between characters born 500+ years apart and makes no real attempt to explain how time travel happens. There are some lapses too (this changed as a result of travel, so why didn't that..?) Those kinds of pesky little details tend to distract me, but if you can let them go and just enjoy this story, it is pleasant.

Any additional comments?

The narration wasn't bad at all. He has an engaging voice, and different characters actually sound different, without being affected and silly.

The book, however... Well, it's pretty much the standard time-travel highlander romance. Girl goes back in time, girl meets and falls in love with highlander, girl gets in trouble, and can't get out of it without being saved by a man. This girl is even more helpless than average, though, hence the mediocre review. A woman can receive help without being utterly helpless and foolish.

Won't be reading anything else from the author.

A little dissappointing.

What did you like best about Everything in Its Time? What did you like least?

I was looking for a modern time travel mystery/adventure and this did indeed include time travel but was very disappointing. I did like the historical details but the characters were very one dimensional for me, more of a 70's Mills and Boon genre.

Would you ever listen to anything by Dee Davis again?

Not very likely.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Ross Pendleton?


Did Everything in Its Time inspire you to do anything?

Historical romantic fantasy at its best.

What did you like most about Everything in Its Time?

It was well written with an excellent hero and heroine, and combines historical and fantasy elements effortlessly.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Everything in Its Time?

There's so much emotion in this story, it's hard to pick one moment.

What does Ross Pendleton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

He's an amazing narrator and a favourite of mine. Plus, he can do a Scottish accent that will make any female go weak at the knees.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

As I said, the whole book is moving. Dee Davis brings across the emotions of the characters powerfully and Ross Pendleton completes what she began.

Any additional comments?

I couldn't put this down.

Narrator let's it down

The narrator may be a good news reader but stilted and lacking nuance and emotion. Admittedly he was not given fluid descriptive prose to work with. Repetitive descriptions, a female lead that was weak and stupid. Although not expecting it to be in the same class as Diana Gabaldin it was still disappointing.
