Review: The Fair by John A. Heldt

Product Description:
Months after stealing two time machines from a madman who wants them back, the Lanes, a family of six, seek safety and contentment in 1893, the latest stop on a journey through time. While parents Mark and Mary find relief at Chicago's World's Columbian Exposition, an extravaganza of science and splendor, children Jeremy, Laura, and Ashley find romance, friendship, and thrills.

Older son Jordan, meanwhile, heads west in search of answers. Grieving the loss of a lover from 1865, he travels to Virginia City, Nevada, where he integrates himself into a storied mining community and the heart of a pretty library clerk.

Billionaire Robert Devereaux could not care less. Reeling from the theft of his million-dollar devices, he sends an assassin to the past to retrieve his property and rid the world of his former business partner and his troublesome clan.

Filled with humor, heartbreak, and suspense, THE FAIR follows a modern family on the adventure of a lifetime as they navigate their way through an unforgettable year in American history.

My Thoughts:
The Fair is the 2nd book in the Time Box trilogy featuring the Lane family. As a big fan of the many time travel books that Heldt has written I knew it would be a great story with lots of suspense and it didn't disappoint. The book is packed with historical references that bring the story to life. 

All about relationships, romance and friendships the book tells the story of several characters at once. I love the story being told this way because by the time the end comes around it feels like I've finished more than one book and am anxiously awaiting the next one. 

My recommendation: 
As usual, I recommend this to anyone who loves romance with a time travel twist.
