Waking in Time, by Angie Stanton
But she is not alone. There is Will who has been traveling the other direction, from 1927 towards the future. And there is a professor at the University who may understand what is going on, although getting help from him will be challenging as he becomes younger and younger every time she meets him. What becomes clear as her voyage unfolds is that it is being driven by unfinished business in her family's history.
A curious time travel tale that I admittedly enjoyed most of all because of its setting (it's sort of fun to read a book that takes place in a town I know very well).. The pace of the story is brisk and the logic holes (usually quite glaring in this particular subgenre) are kept to a minimum. The romance plays out a bit weird since it's in reverse for one of the characters so there isn't much heat to it (a similar problem befalls all of the character development outside of Abbi). So, this isn't a memorable read, but it's still quite pleasant entertainment.
