"Out of Time" briefly was offered at no charge, and after reading the sample, I downloaded it to my Kindle.
I have eclectic reading tastes--sci fi, mystery/suspense, bodice-ripping gothics--which may explain both why I enjoyed this book so much and why I didn't enjoy it as much as others might.
First, let me state that I love getting the opportunity to read words written by unknown and/or indie authors. Sometimes, these works are ruined by grammatical errors, typos, and just crappy writing. For the most part, this was not the case with "Out of Time," although I was distracted a few times by glitches that could've been caught by a stern editor.
I found the premise appealing and appreciated the author's efforts to help me "suspend disbelief." In fact, her efforts in this regard probably will lead some readers to downgrade their ratings because of "all the science talk." The "place" at which I had a difficult time "suspending disbelief" was in the male character's easy acceptance of this new world in which he found himself.
Two other flaws: (1) the repeated intrusion of one particular character gave him away as KEY to the overall story, and (2) the quick reappearance of the male protagonist took away from the story's ability to hold us in thrall over months or years as the female protagonist watched the garden shed (because, truly, we would've been right beside her, hoping where there should be no hope).
Overall, I found this to be a story that was "prickly" at the outset but sweet and charming at the end.
