The Second Time Around by Nancy Moser

With the success of the first round of Time Lottery tickets, the owners of the company are going to give it a second time around and draw three more tickets from the pile.
The first is an actor wanting to see what life would be like without her acting career in her face, and the second is a woman wanting to find out the truth about her mother, and the third is a man wanting to keep his fiancee from dying this time.
There's nothing clear cut about this one.
I thought I had it all figured out about who was going to stay in the past and who wasn't. But I was dead wrong.
I'm surprised that Nancy Moser is showing this kind of originality in this book. It was unprecedented and welcome at the same time.
The only downside of this book is the inevitable romantic subplot that Nancy can't seem to depart. But this aspect of the book is overshadowed by the deeper originality.
This is one of her only three Elite books for a good reason.
4.5 stars
