Spinning Time, a time travel romance by D. F. Jones 

1948, Burkett Falls 
Southern debutante, Julia Boatwright has everything a twenty-one-year-old desires, a wealthy family, close friends, and a handsome fiancé until she plunges into the deep pools of Burkett Falls trapped in a natural time portal that propels her seventy years into the future. 

Will Julia find a way home before it's too late? 

My Thoughts:

I was sent an ARC by the author in exchange for an honest review. 

D.F. Jones has become one of my favorite authors her novels are always so different and enjoyable.  I’m not a big fan of sci-fi, but I’m a sucker for romance so I thought I would give it a shot and I found myself not being able to put it down. Spinning time takes place in 1948 Burkett Falls and it follows Julia Boatwright! I found Julia to be a very likable character her bubbly attitude always made me smile and the fact that she was a feisty little thing when need be (she would probably have my head for calling her little) was just a plus! I always love a character that’s a sweetheart but has an attitude when needed. Julia’s love interest Phillip is so swoon worthy! The way he treats her and looks for her when she disappears is the kind of man I would want to be by my side.

Julia disappeared in the falls of Burkett after she accidentally slipped and a current took her. She ends up in some sort of time portal that takes her to present time Burkett Falls, to her luck she is found by Andy, Phillips grandson. While all this is occurring, we are also introduced to Ruben who is a time traveler that lives in Lunar City; his mission is to protect Julia! I really Liked Ruben, he was such a strong character and despite his feelings he always did what was in Julia’s best interested without thinking about himself. I think Jones did an amazing job writing this book the characters were complex and the way she described the time traveling machines and portals was phenomenal. It also showed how much research and time was put into the novel, but with that said I did feel a little lost once in a while when it involved teach talk. The way both of Julia’s worlds intertwine and come together was so well done! Jones wrote the perfect amount of romance mixed with sci-fi elements and a bit of action, she also threw some surprises my way that had me at the edge of my seat. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and absolutely loved the ending! I can’t wait to read more from Jones. If you have yet to pick up her novels what are you waiting for.
