Time and Time Again (3037 #2) - Peggy Holloway I obtained this book when it was offered as a free Kindle download.

Book is identified as a sequel, and there is no lead-in summary of the previous book, so it really can't be read as a stand-alone. The background provided in Chapter 1 is apparently a retelling of the first book, but that's not really made clear.

Writing is amateurish and awkward, flat, uninteresting, mundane. Story style is reminiscent of juvenile Star Trek fan fiction or something similar, written by someone who thinks they've got a great new idea but who hasn't read enough to know . . . it's not.

Lots of characters, no description, no action. All telling, no showing.

I'm sure the author had fun writing it, but it's not any fun to read.
