Finding himself stuck in the past, he enlists in the Union army, but it doesn’t take long before he discovers real life war is no fun and games.Casey and Nate race against the clock to find Tim, but the strain wears on their relationship. It doesn’t help that the intriguing new boy next door has his sights on Casey, and isn’t shy to let her know it. Can Nate and Casey find Tim in time to save him? And is it too late to save their love?
Christina's Review: Book #2 in the Clockwise Series is just as good as the first. Casey is feeling better about herself. She has a boyfriend and her life isn't as stressful as it used to be so she hasn't tripped in awhile. Then she starts having a fight with her brother and takes him back at time. She explained the process to him and when she comes to get him he doesn't go along! Silly brother! Her brother might be doing drugs and it will surprise you who is the dealer. I was certainly surprised. There are relationship problems between Casey and Nate, which makes their relationship seem more realistic. Will the strain be too much for them? Will Tim make it back to the present?? All these questions answered in book #2!!! It was fun and entertaining. A creative storyline. The author does well with switching between the past and the present and inserts a little US history in her story. Hope you find it as entertaining as I did.
