Time is not what it appears to be.

 

State trooper Daniel Reilly never thought he’d wind up in his stepmother’s favorite movie. Chasing a suspected drunk driver through Washington’s desolate Okanogan Highlands is part of his job, but crashing his cruiser and waking up in a ghost town definitely isn’t. And when that ghost town starts to come to life?

 

His version of Brigadoon is not a carefree musical.

 

Eerie. Unsettling. Atmospheric.

This newest book by Meg Justus, like her earlier Yellowstone series, places its protagonist in a different time from his own. Unlike the Yellowstone series, this is a darkly mysterious, uncertain situation he finds himself in. Like Dan Reilly, the reader also must look carefully for clues to determine the landscape of the novel. The fact that you're never quite sure what is the truth behind Dan's experiences and the people he meets lends the book a dream-like air. I couldn't put it down, but I kept listening for Rod Serling's voice as narrator.
Desert Red Hen

Is this a time travel book or a romance genre or paranormal?

To me it was a combination of the three.
There’s a lot to enjoy about this book, I love the way the M.M. Justus creates a charming, growing friendship between Daniel and Amy. What’s great is that you too grow to love both Daniel and Amy as their friendship blossoms - even if Daniel is unwilling to admit to the situation.
All the secondary characters are particularly well crafted even with those playing smaller parts.
The author splendidly creates the setting and shows her great knowledge of this beautiful region. With the time travel aspect only adding that extra element of intrigue, M.M. Justus’ care in seamlessly weaving both elements is evident throughout the book.
What makes this book different is that the main character Daniel wasn’t looking to time travel – he starts out entirely by accident. Well, was it by accident? Read and find out. You get to bond with both the main and minor characters and I could easily picture myself in the same circumstance. Nothing I felt was superfluous but every scene easily added to the rich detail in the book.
M.M. Justus did a great job in keeping me intrigued. With certain hints I thought I knew what was going on in Conconully. But the cleverness of this author threw me off yet again with another twist and I’d turn the next page only to increase my stubbornness in wanting to find out where the author would take me this time.
Good Work M.M. Justus – I’m looking forward to buying Volume 2!

Thoughtful Tale of a Shangri La in the Wilds of the American West

State trooper Dan Reilly is lost, emotionally and literally, as he follows a careening truck deep into the unknown in rural Washington state. His pursuit ends in a crash and he awakens in a totally unfamiliar place: the people are friendly and the town seems 100 years old. Over the ensuing weeks, Dan finds community, love, and a position in a town where he is valued. Will he give up the world of 2014 for this?

MM Justus has crafted a tale whose unearthliness makes us consider the necesssity of change: humans and communities need new possibilities in order to stay alive.
