Book Description

The accidental death of his beloved wife sent Alex Morgan into a numbing world of suppressed grief and rage, eased only by a profound bond with his son. Suddenly his life is shattered again when a chance discovery propels him into a world gone horribly, terrifyingly wrong.

Piecing together clues in this new nightmare, Alex suspects a colleague of taking a few, meddling steps back in time, changing the course of history - destroying Alex's family and his world. Desperately clinging to his sanity, he searches for any evidence his young son still exists.
Jessica O'Neil is fighting a nightmare of her own, captured and facing execution for freedom-fighting heroics in her grim, oppressive world. When Alex rescues the feisty young rebel, she resists her dangerous attraction to him - a man who's clearly crazy, literally in a world of his own.

Bound together first by chance and desperation, then by growing purpose, respect, and emotion, Alex and Jessie must depend on each other to survive. More than that, they must find a way to prevent a terrible crime from taking place - a crime that plunged both their worlds into nightmare - over a hundred years before. To have a future, they will have to find their way to the past.

TIMELAPSE is an AWARD WINNER in the 2014 Readers' Favorite International Book Awards.

Editorial Reviews


"TIMELAPSE literally kept me on my toes. This is such a remarkable novel. I could not put it down. I felt as if I were actually in the story... This novel greatly moved me. I highly recommend this book."~ A. Ryan, Readers' Favorite
"Those who want their alternate history and timeslip stories laced with believable, winning protagonists should look no further than TIMELAPSE: it provides a gripping, involving read from start to finish, and stands out from the crowd." ~ D. Donovan, reviewing for the Midwest Book Review
"Prof. Alex Morgan accidentally discovers a time travel device...When he toys with it, it suddenly activates, taking him ... to a parallel universe very different from his own.
Farrelly has done a marvelous job describing a world gone crazy... I recommend (TIMELAPSE) to anyone who likes a fast-paced story that keeps the pages turning until the very end. This is one of my favorite books of the year." ~ M. McManus, Readers' Favorite
"A fascinating book with amazing characters. Jessie is only twenty-two and yet is willing to put her life on the line for a better world. Alex is willing to do whatever it takes to get his son back and bring the U.S. back to its former glory. It is a story of courage, people risking it all to fight for peace. I was hooked from the first page!" ~ Paranormal Romance Guild
A great book! I really don't know if I would classify it as strictly Sci-Fi. It seemed like it had many more elements... plus...a little bit of romance thrown in for some spice...Give this one a chance...You won't regret it! ~ Indie Author Anonymous
"Engaging and engrossing...a great read for those who love romance, science fiction, and time travel!" ~ Judge, 22nd Annual Writer's Digest Self-Published Book Awards

From the Inside Flap

With a roar to rend the universe, the fabric of time warped and fractured.
In shock, they huddled together in the darkness. Trembling, Jessie whispered, "What's outside that door, Alex? Your world or mine? Or something else altogether? Something ... terrible?"
He wrapped his arms around her, held her tightly, shook his head. "I don't know."
Jessie shivered, murmured against his chest, "I'm afraid. I'm so afraid."
"I know," he nodded. "I am, too."

I just happened upon this book while browsing. I love a paranormal twist but lately, all I've found are vampires, werewolves and zombies--not my cup of tea. Time-travel and alternate universe is, and this fits the bill nicely. In a way, this reminded me of Back to the Future, the second and third movies moreso than the first.

It starts with Alex zapped into an alternate universe when he finds a device left by the previous occupant of his office and accidentally triggers it. The world he finds himself in is scary and reminded me of the Soviet Union, only worse. The author does a good job of creating this alternate reality, and how even the technology has lagged because of the changes.

I also found the main character, Alex, very likable and someone I could easily root for. I wasn't quite as fond of his newfound love, Jessie, partly because she seemed a bit too young for him, but as a character, she was good.

The writing style was smooth, flowed well, and I had no trouble picturing everything happening. The action sequences were especially good. I found no typos or formatting issues either.

I will be taking a look at a few other books I noticed by this author, and will most likely buy them.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fast-paced, thrilling time travel adventure! December 23, 2010
By A.G.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After reading Ms. Farrelly's first novel, Terms of Surrender, I was itching for more! I purchased Timelapse on my Kindle and read it in one day, not able to put it down. Each chapter is fast-paced and filled with suspense and adventure. Ms. Farrelly successfully leaves you wanting more after each page. During every chapter I read, I kept saying to myself "OK, after this chapter, I'll take a break" then found myself at the end of the chapter dying to know what happens next. I soon found myself at the end of the book before I knew it! I grew up loving time travel movies such as Back to the Future and Somewhere in Time and this has elements of both. I highly recommend this novel, no matter what kind of reader you are. This novel has something for everyone! Buy it today!!!

By CeeCee
Format:Kindle Edition
Bored out of my mind on a train to Los Angeles I had my trusty Kindle. So, I glanced through the TBR list, found Timelapse, and thought why not. Well surprise, surprise within a few pages I was sucked into an alternate universe where nothing made sense.
It was as if I was living the experience with Alex the story’s hero and main squeeze. His sideline story added a human touch to him. Usually I’m not a back story gal; I have an issue with patience. So I’m generally like ‘let’s just get this story on the road, like now’. In this case however, that dimension of Alex would not have been as clear without the back story. My perception of him would have been less empathetic. His occasional whine based victim behavior would have annoyed me. Because, I knew back story, I was able to just write it off to being a man.
I don’t like reviews that screw up reading surprises. I’m going to try and do this with no spoilers. First off, I love books that are well edited and well written. This book takes care of both of those, must have needs.
My second big buggy boo is under developed characters that are flat. Whose voices you can’t hear clearly when reading the dialogue. Well this book got a check and check on both. Are these people your standard run of the mill romance characters? No, but that is not a bad thing in this case. They are off beat and more than a little kooky but very likeable and easy to read.
The storyline was good, that said I’m not a big Sci Fi fan. This strikes me as a bit more Steampunk then Sci Fi and I love, love, love Steampunk. Because the author didn’t forget, this was a romance too. The end result, this is, a fun little kicky story. Sort of Brave New World meets Walden Pond with a little Harry Orwell thrown in for interest and intrigue.

5.0 out of 5 stars We fought over Timelapse January 17, 2014
By Lisa G.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There is no lapse of action in Timelapse by Lorrie Farrelly. In fact, my husband and I had a Kindle war over it. We share an Amazon account, but read on separate iPads. Since we have our account set-up to sync books across devices, we were always losing our places in our individual books. We didn’t figure out that we were reading the same book until he finished Timelapse. We usually have different tastes in books, but this one appealed to both of us.

Professor Alex Morgan, widower, single-dad, and an up and coming academic at Capitol University in Georgetown, happens to find a time travel device. Alex has grown used to focusing on his son, his mom, and his career. This all changes when he begins to travel through time.

Alex soon meets Jessica O’Neil, who is about to be executed. Jessie and Alex find love when they both least suspect it. When he saves Jessie from certain death, Alex begins to fall in love with her. Jessie does not return his affection immediately. In fact, she is frightened of him at first, and fears that he may be insane. She soon learns to believe him and the two become partners and crime-fighting allies in a harrowing attempt to prevent an assassination.

Timelapse sort of reminds me of Stephen King’s November 22, 1963. Like King’s book, it is full of twists and turns from start to finish. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys time travel fiction or action and suspense.

"DANGEROUS opens with a bang and just keeps on firing emotions and mystery to the end... Descriptions are vivid and capture a sense of awe, challenge, and love with deft pen strokes. Readers will find something new happens in every chapter...There's a healthy dose of steamy passion that charges the crime focus with romance, making this of special recommendation to romance readers." ~ D.

"Wow. What a great book! TERMS OF TEMPTATION has it all: coherent plot, clear setting, credible dialogue and slang (for 1903, Wyoming), textured primary and secondary characters, humor, pathos, villainy and murderous mayhem (but not too much), authentic adolescents, adorable baby wild animals, and a few profoundly moving scenes involving the family ghost, or guardian angel." ~ Amazon Review

"More than your usual crime story: THE GUARDIAN'S ANGEL holds that promise in its very title, reinforces it in its opening chapter, and keeps its promise through a series of vivid encounters that keep readers involved on an emotional level." ~ D. Donovan, reviewing for Midwest Book Review
