Crossover by Judith Eubank

Crossover was originally published in 1999.  Meredith Blake finds herself at a small university in England to work on her thesis.  Housed in a dormitory that was once part of a large estate, Meredith sees people that she first assumes are part of a film set.  The people she sees are wearing clothes from the 1800's, but Meredith eventually realizes that whatever they are, the people she sees are not actors.  Then, suddenly, she finds herself part of the scenes for brief spells, somehow transferred back in time.  And oddly enough, the woman with whom she changes places shows up just as confused in the present.

There is an odd romance--very quick and unbelievable, as is the majority of the plot which has a surface tension, but little depth.  I did like the idea of the characters changing places, but the book never really dealt with the woman from the past who arrives temporarily in the present.

NetGalley/Open Road Media

Mystery/Time Travel.  1999; 2014.  Print length: 199 pages.


  1. Sounds intriguing, but it'd be even better if there're further elaborations on the woman from the past. I'll consider about reading this book.

  2. Little depth? How disappointing. I liked the sound of this one initially. It's too bad it didn't live up to its potential.

  3. It doesn't sound like you were overwhelmed with this one which is a shame. Lack of information strikes AGAIN!
    Lynn :D

  4. Melody, Wendy, and Lynn - I don't think this author is one that I'll pursue. The plot and characters were a bit simplistic, and even though I liked the premise, it fell a little flat.
