Waiting on Wednesday 10/13/21
Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that first originated at Breaking the Spine but has since linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings now that the original creator is unable to host it anymore. Either way, this fun feature is a chance to showcase the upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!
A Rip Through Time by Kelley Armstrong (May 31, 2022 by Minotaur Books)
As you know, Kelley Armstrong is the author of one of my favorite mystery-thriller series right now, and with Rockton still going very strong, I was a little surprised to see that she’ll be debuting another new detectives series pretty soon. But hey, I’m certainly not complaining! Mallory sounds like a character I’d love to meet, and I also love that there is a time travel/supernatural element.
“In this series debut from New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong, a modern-day homicide detective finds herself in Victorian Scotland—in an unfamiliar body—with a killer on the loose.
May 20, 2019: Homicide detective Mallory is in Edinburgh to be with her dying grandmother. While out on a jog one evening, Mallory hears a woman in distress. She’s drawn to an alley, where she is attacked and loses consciousness.
May 20, 1869: Housemaid Catriona Thomson had been enjoying a half-day off, only to be discovered that night in a lane, where she’d been strangled and left for dead . . . exactly one-hundred-and-fifty years before Mallory was strangled in the same spot.
When Mallory wakes up in Catriona’s body in 1869, she must put aside her shock and adjust quickly to the reality: life as a housemaid to an undertaker in Victorian Scotland. She soon discovers that her boss, Dr. Gray, also moonlights as a medical examiner and has just taken on an intriguing case, the strangulation of a young man, similar to the attack on herself. Her only hope is that catching the murderer can lead her back to her modern life . . . before it’s too late.
Outlander meets The Alienist in Kelley Armstrong’s A Rip Through Time, the first book in this utterly compelling series, mixing romance, mystery, and fantasy with thrilling results.”
Oh nice! Now I’m intrigued by this new series as well!

While Outlander was not exactly to my tastes, the addition of the murder mystery to this novel turns into a very intriguing proposition… 🙂
Yeah, I definitely got vibes of Outlander from this too!

Ooh, lucky! You’ll probably get to it before me, I hope you’ll enjoy!
I know there’s potential to this sort of story but I’m going to have to wait and see what you and others have to say about it. It’s something that’s been done often enough, and some of the results weren’t to my liking.
I’m not usually one for these types of stories either, but it’s Kelley Armstrong and I have faith in anything she writes 😀
This sounds so different from Rockton! And now I have a chance of starting one of her series from the beginning😁
It really sounds very different! But I guess if she’s going to write another detective/mystery series, it’s gotta stand out from Rockton!
I do need to try her in this genre
I really do love her mystery/thrillers!
