Timeshare – Second Time Around is book two of the Timeshare trilogy.
John Surrey, the ex-cop who works for the time agency, travels back in time to 1926 together with his wife and movie star, Althea Rowland. This time they must rescue a client who managed to escape from Timeshare. The hunt for the client provides lots of encounters with – strangely enough (yes, I’m being sarcastic) – numerous past celebrities! Including Bugsy Siegel, Ronald Reagen, Charles Lindbergh, Al Capone, Harpo Marx and more.
Indeed, just like in the previous novel, the plot very quickly becomes secondary, and celebrity hunt becomes the primary focus. Since this is the second book in the series, the novelty of the premise is starting to wear off; usually at this point the plot is suppose to hook us in, alas, the plot is not strong enough to maintain the reader’s interest. That being said, despite these obvious weaknesses, the book is generally still a fast-paced, fun read. It could be the perfect novel for lying on the beach or during long plane flights.
In summary, All in all, it’s a fun read, but don’t expect too much.
