Cover Crush: A Murder in Time by Julie McElwain

Erin over at Flashlight Commentary is the one that came up with the cover crush idea and I loved it so much that I decided that every Thursday would I post a cover that I really love. 

Check out this week's cover crush over at Flashlight Commentary2 Kids and Tired Books and The Maiden's Court!


This week's Cover Crush is one of my absolute favorite, both when it come to the cover, but also the book in itself. I read A Murder in Time by Julie McElwain a couple of month's ago and it's by far one of the best time travel books I have ever read. And, that cover, now only does I love the fact that it's so whiteness, the dress, the clouds and the background, but still not entirely white, it's more dirty white kind of feeling over it if you know what I mean. And, then we have the modern city on the top and below the woman, you can see the castle. It's simply a wonderful cover, it takes my breath away! 

A Murder in Time Julie McElwain

When brilliant FBI agent Kendra Donovan stumbles back in time and finds herself in a 19th century English castle under threat from a vicious serial killer, she scrambles to solve the case before it takes her life―200 years before she was even born.
Beautiful and brilliant, Kendra Donovan is a rising star at the FBI. Yet her path to professional success hits a speed bump during a disastrous raid where half her team is murdered, a mole in the FBI is uncovered and she herself is severely wounded. As soon as she recovers, she goes rogue and travels to England to assassinate the man responsible for the deaths of her teammates.

While fleeing from an unexpected assassin herself, Kendra escapes into a stairwell that promises sanctuary but when she stumbles out again, she is in the same place - Aldrich Castle - but in a different time: 1815, to be exact.

Mistaken for a lady's maid hired to help with weekend guests, Kendra is forced to quickly adapt to the time period until she can figure out how she got there; and, more importantly, how to get back home. However, after the body of a young girl is found on the extensive grounds of the county estate, she starts to feel there's some purpose to her bizarre circumstances. Stripped of her twenty-first century tools, Kendra must use her wits alone in order to unmask a cunning madman.
