Patches through Time
An unbelievably believable time travel escapade.
Casual antique dealer Jake Patch picks up an unusual object and can’t put it down. Literally. His find is a time travel device, and he hatches a bold plan to acquire objects from the past and sell them at modern day prices. But when the mysterious Infinity Glass leaves Patch stranded in a dangerous past, it falls to his teen daughter Cass to save him.
With hints of The Time Traveller’s Wife and Back to the Future and a smattering of Lovejoy, Patches through Time will send you spinning headlong into the past, then spit you back into the twenty-first century.
This book contains occasional profanities. Trigger warning: bereavement (parent, spouse).

This is a combination of YA, Fantasy, and Time Travel. The official book blurb says it’s reminiscent of The Time Traveler’s Wife and Back to the Future, and it is in one way, which the reader will soon see. The rules of time travel are very firmly set by the author, which I liked quite a bit. The method of time travel is both an object and a magical creature, which I feel worked in this book.
The plot did not go the way I would have liked, but the premise of the story was good. It appears there are more books to come, as this one ended on a cliffhanger.
I received a free copy of this book via Rachel’s Random Resources. My review is voluntary and the opinions expressed are my own.

Yeah, I have mixed feelings on “Part 1” books – i.e. cliffhangers. Back to the Future is actually a great example; self-contained story. Complete arc, but with a semi-open ending that would have been fine without the sequels.

And didn’t we all prefer the first one?
I like the premise very much. I hope the next book comes out soon.
A well-written and entertaining story would be enough to make me read the next one without a cliffhanger. If you do read the next I hope you enjoy it more.
