Publisher's Summary

Jodi Taylor’s best-selling series The Chronicles of St Mary is back with a bang….
St. Mary’s has been rebuilt ,and it’s business as usual for the history department. But first there’s the little matter of a 17th-century ghost that only Mr. Markham can see. Not to mention the minor inconvenience of being trapped in the Great Fire of London…and an unfortunately timed comfort break at Thermopylae, leaving the fate of the Western world hanging in the balance.
Rejoin Max’s madcap journey through time in Jodi Taylor’s fifth interdimensional instalment No Time Like the Past.
Jodi Taylor, International Woman of Mystery, spent some time working undercover for North Yorkshire County Library Service. Heavily disguised as the world's most incompetent facilities manager, she shifted dead dogs, fell out of mobile libraries, and spent far too much time in the gents' toilets.
The idea to rewrite history first came to her while studying history A level at an evening class. Just One Damned Thing After Another is her first novel and was originally self-published as an e-book; it was downloaded by more than 60,000 readers on Amazon.

Ms. Taylor Does it Again!

If you could sum up No Time Like the Past in three words, what would they be?

funny,educational,entertaining

Who was your favorite character and why?

Max,of course. She is my hero!

What does Zara Ramm bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Zara Ramm is incredible! She is perfect! Her tone magnifies the funny bits,and brings the characters to life.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Nothing really extreme. Wait...do I smell asparagus? Could be a reaction from laughing so hard. You'll understand after you've read it..lol

Any additional comments?

I didn't know what to expect when I started this series. Now I know I'm going to be entertained with each installment. No Time Like the Past was as funny and educational as the others. Can't recommend this series highly enough.

Spell bounding series.

The narration is spot on!

The story is historically accurate and, with astonishment, wildly entertaining!

A highly suggested way to waste massive amounts of time!

If the Joneses had a child ...

If Bridgette and Indiana had a child then Max would be the result!

Madcap adventures through time and deeply emotional this is a poignant, exciting and hilarious read. As a bonus I now also perform better in the history rounds at the local pub quiz.

Amongst my favourite authors I list Tolkien, Pratchett, Conan-Doyle, Christie, Asimov and Koontz...I have no problem adding Jodi Taylor to this list as an equally capable and entertaining author.

Another edge-of-the-seat story by Jodi Taylor!

If I thought I'd encountered Max's scariest adventures as an Historian, with St Mary's ... I was wrong! Seriously nail-biting adventures in this story, with the usual wonderful fast-paced and humorous interactions with the other equally interesting characters. I love these books!
