Rachel Crane was just six when her older sister, Brooke, died in a car accident ten years ago at the age of sixteen. Rachel often wishes that Brooke was still alive and there for her. That fantasy has to take a back seat to the reality of being sent to stay with her grandmother for the summer, leaving Rachel’s boyfriend Duncan behind in Lake Melrose, Oregon.

Just before she’s supposed to leave home, Rachel runs up to the attic--a place she often goes for some down time. A mysterious antique musical clockwatch literally appears at her feet. She picks it up, feels slightly dizzy, and finds herself transported back in time to the day her sister died.

Before Rachel can prevent the tragedy from happening, she must convince Brooke and herself that she is not losing her mind or caught up in a dream. After saving Brooke from her fate, Rachel finds herself back in the future, where it appears the whole thing was merely a dream when she suffered a mild concussion.

Then Rachel realizes she really did travel back in time and, as a result, changed her sister’s destiny to something even more ominous. Brooke is now killed one week later by an unknown perpetrator. While trying to understand the mysterious clockwatch and its origin, Rachel uses it to go back again to try and save Brooke.

Through the power of the watch, both girls end up in the present as sixteen-year olds, with more changes as a consequence. Rachel’s father does not recognize Brooke as having ever existed. However, strangely enough, her Nana does recognize Brooke, but that is dismissed by others due to her age and the early stages of senility.

Rachel has an ally in her boyfriend Duncan, a science whiz, who believes her incredible story and wants to help any way he can. But first they must discover the origins of the clockwatch and the Sisters of Time it belongs to.

Meanwhile, Rachel, Brooke, and Duncan face danger when the serial killer who tried to kill Brooke ten years ago has targeted her again in the present, along with Rachel. The girls must identify him before he succeeds with his deadly plans, even as they also grapple with any other possibilities the clockwatch may have in store for them in the passages of time.

    A wonderful and original twist on time travel, involving two 16

    A wonderful and original twist on time travel, involving two 16 year old sisters -- only one died ten years earlier, before being visited by the other from the future with the help of a mysterious clockwatch. This creates various problems for the sisters in altering time -- including adjusting to one another and evading a serial killer through time. Highly recommend for fans of teen fiction and time travel and its many implications on the past and future. Also recommend the author's teen time travel romance fantasy, CHRISTMAS WISHES: Laura's Story, haunted house mystery, GHOST GIRL IN SHADOW BAY, and teen vampire novel, COUNT DRACULA'S TEENAGE DAUGHTER.

    Kind of heavy handed....

    I did read the entire book and wanted to know what the outcome would be, but I found that Flowers' prose was somewhat stilted and the characters didn't feel very realistic on many levels. It was a very interesting premise and I like where Flowers went with it--really didn't expect one of the plot twists, but went with it and enjoyed it. So while I felt it had some problems, I had a good readof it ultimately.

    Danger in Time is Masterful Prose

    Danger is Time grabbed me from the first chapter. It's clear the author is exceptional at creating multi-dimensional characters. The plot is a unique twist to time travel, bearing mystical elements. The characterizations of the sisters' parents is superb, showing that the author is tuned into modern step-parent relationships. But the gem of this story is the relationship between the sisters; it is powerfully written by the author, and easy to invest in as a reader. I was so engaged in this story that I hated to put it down. It is so well crafted that I had to learn a bit more about the author once I finished. I learned that R. Barri Flowers has written over forty books. It's clear that Danger in Time is an example of his masterful prose.
