The Fair, the second book in the Time Box series, shows a lot of changes for the Lane family. Jordan is still healing from a major loss, but when he meets a stranger on the train, it leads him to Jessie, and he’s immediately drawn in. His conflicted emotions between healing and interest play on his mind. Jeremy, the son that never settles down, has his eye on someone too. But he needs to keep his distance because she’s engaged, and it wouldn’t be right. Laura’s also feeling pretty lonely, so she’s eager to make some friends. With all of this going on, it’s almost easy to forget they’re supposed to be in hiding. Let’s hope they don’t make any slip-ups because they don’t want Silas Bain on their trail.
With this one, you need to start at the beginning with The Lane Betrayal. I don’t read a lot of time travel, but it’s because Heldt does such fantastic research to make his stories historically accurate that I’m so drawn into his books. I love that he took us to Chicago’s World’s Columbian Exposition, where we get to experience it in vivid detail. The characters are multi-dimensional, and as they meet new people, the newcomers get drawn into the story. The romance, the history, and the thrill of having to hide throughout time make this an exciting read. I can’t wait to see where the Lane family goes from here.
