A review of Cross Stitch by Amanda James - Five *


A stitch in time may save nine but a cross-stitch spells disaster … 
It should be the happiest day of her life. Despite past heartache, Sarah Yates is finally marrying her true love, John Needler. 

But Sarah and John can’t pretend they’re an ordinary couple. They’re time travellers and where time travel is involved, nothing runs smoothly. One minute Sarah is saying her vows and the next she is hurtled back in time to a country that is on the cusp of war, and into the company of the bad-tempered Veronica Ratchet. 

Newly-wedded bliss is certainly not on the cards for Sarah as events see her travelling from the British punk era to 1950’s America. And even when she returns home she can’t escape Veronica. 

But when the past and the present collide, that’s when the real problems start … 
Sequel to A Stitch in Time


Loved this book - it follows the adventures of Sarah and John in their time travelling. A wonderful new character, Veronica, is also introduced - in quite a startling manner! 

I enjoyed A Stitch in Time and have been looking forward to this book. I certainly wasn't disappointed. The relationship between John and Sarah changes slightly as they adapt to new circumstances. I'll say no more on that! 

I felt the relationships within the families were possibly tidied up a little too well but I'm delighted that the ending is such that another book is more than possible!
