When it all Goes Still by Allison Mullinax
Adult; Fantasy Romance; 296 Pages
Wild Rose Press (January 22, 2020)
Traveler Smith’s rebellious nature should have cost him his job a long time ago, but he’s also the most skillful Observation Agent within the division. While on assignment, his refusal to follow the agency rules finally catches up to him and a girl in modern day Alabama witnesses him time travel. Johanna Martin is a witty, adventurous runner still recovering from the tragic loss of her parents when she discovers a dark-faced stranger along her favorite running trail. Confused by what she witnessed that night at the local state park, she is unable to ignore the effects it has had on her. Traveler, unable to stay away, faces a choice…Johanna or his life.
About the Author:
North Alabama native, Allison Mullinax, grew up in the small lake town of Guntersville, AL. She discovered the escapism and addiction of writing at an early age. Today she remains a lover of reading, all things outdoors, and spending time with her husband and three daughters.
Allison Mullinax hits another home run with When it All Goes Still. Both witty and intense, Still is told in an entirely different style than her first release, Break the Line.
Our hero for this story, Traveler, is mysterious and edgy; our heroine, Johanna, is a force to be reckoned with, despite her recent heartaches. Regardless of their instant attraction, their relationship is against all the rules, and they try – oh how they try – to stay away from each other. (How far away? A few hundred years, give or take…)
This book is written in first-person POV, present tense. I know that isn’t often the first choice for readers, but I believe that it was the right choice for this particular novel. The plot is tense and twisty with surprises (something I think we can assume will become a hallmark for Ms. Mullinax), and it pulls readers in to keep turning the pages.
In short, When it all Goes Still, is another winner from Allison Mullinax. Intense, well-rounded characters move quickly through a riveting plot. This is a heart-breaking and sweet story in the time-travel romance department.
