Just One Damned Thing After Another
This is the first book in the Chronicles of St. Mary's series. St. Mary's Institute of Historical Research is not a bastion of stuffy, stereotypical historians poring over documents and books. St. Mary's "investigates major historical events in contemporary time" via time travel (but don't call it that!). New historian Madeleine Maxwell, "Max" soon discovers that popping back to observe without disrupting history is not always easy and can be quite dangerous (T-Rex anyone?), When a mission discovers other time travelers whose purpose is far from innocent, a mission to stop them is organized and goes horrible wrong and Max must try to rectify things. This is light reading with humor, romance, and a bit of sex added to the serious elements. Not great literature but a fun book. But I haven't decided if I will continue with the rest of the series.
