Book Review – Running Behind Time by Jan Turk Petrie

Running Behind Time by Jan Turk Petrie

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Running Behind Time

When Tom hops on a train for London in July 2020, in the middle of a pandemic, he never thought in his wildest dreams that the train would transport him to 1982. Believing the only way back to the 21st century is to travel on the same train for home, he catches the train hours later for the return trip. On board, he encounters Beth. A young woman on her way to visit her aunt. But when the train goes dark and she touches his arm, Beth inadvertently travels with Tom back to 2020. And getting her to believe the world is a different place than the one she left behind, is going to take some time.

This time-slip story by Jan Turk Petrie is a fun read. I found it well written and the storyline held my interest. There are some surprises along the way that I didn’t see coming. But one of the biggest surprises was the abrupt ending. It felt like there should be more, and it would be a lie to say I wasn’t a bit disappointed. I’m hoping there’s a second book in the works. If there is, perhaps the author should consider adding book 1 so readers understand the story continues.
