The portal to an alternate world was the start of all her troubles or was it?

When Eve Carpenter lands with a splash in the Thames, it’s not the London or England she’s used to. No one has a telephone or knows what a computer is. England’s a third world country and Princess Di is still alive. But worst of all, everyone thinks Eve’s a spy.

Including Major Harker who has his own problems. His sworn enemy is looking for a promotion. The general wants him to undertake some ridiculous mission to capture a computer, which Harker vaguely envisions running wild somewhere in Yorkshire. Turns out the best person to help him is Eve.

She claims to be a popstar. Harker doesn’t know what a popstar is, although he suspects it’s a fancy foreign word for ‘spy’. Eve knows all about computers, and electricity. Eve is dangerous. There’s every possibility she’s mad.

And Harker is falling in love with her.

Short-listed for the 2012 Best Romantic Contemporary Novel of the year award (RoNAs).

A very interesting story with plenty of twists. Takes time travel into a modern storyline. Characters well portrayed.

Very good
August 1st, 2013
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and found it hard to put down. Although in the first couple of chapters I did get a bit lost and had to go back to re-read something's as they didn't make sense, but it was made clearer if I'd read on a little more! Anyway, the idea of the book was quite unusual, I've seen these sorts of ideas on TV, but not read it. The parallel universe certainly gave you food for thought. I liked the heroine & hero, although they played the typical roles, they weren't overly stereotyped, and the simmering feelings throughout the book were very believable and not too soppy. Kate Johnson did allow some soppy moment's, but it was such a good book, I'll forgive her. The supporting characters were equally as likeable, which helped set the scene. Highly recommended, as this was pure escapism because, there is no way we could ever know how it was to live in this world
