A great read about urgency. Wilda just wants to live her life running her outfitters shop for time travellers. But life seems to have other ideas for her when a time traveller collapses in her shop due to a mystery illness. The contagion spreads to every other Temporal Agent who has Travelled recently and Wilda finds herself and her team as the only ones unaffected. Pulled out of retirement, she and Mattea Travel into the past, following three men for a cause of the illness. Can they return to the present with answers before its too late?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns that I just couldn’t put down. Well developed characters like Wilda sarcastic and stubborn but caring underneath or Mattea kind and naïve but stubborn underneath. Great cast of supporting characters like the supportive friend Tarren or the condescending Lady Xanthippe.
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel like with the Temporal Shifter with its brass and copper and steam like something out of a sci fi novel strange and antique but with a sense of beauty and wonder. Or the scenes in Mali with the desert and the impressive palace and its caravans, full of life and colour and people wit the animals and the vibrant dress colours with sights and smells and sounds so vivid its as if you’re actually there, wonderfully written.
I loved the idea behind the story of the outfitters shop for time travellers, fantastical but realistic at the same time and wonderfully written. A wonderful example of world building with the Temporal Agents living alongside other humans with their own rules and laws and customs clearly explained to the reader and wonderfully thought out tot he smallest detail, a lovely touch. I also liked the use of the past, with historical figures and cultures given the respect they deserve. I also loved the use of pronunciations at the start of the novel to make the names more easier for the reader to understand, a lovely addition. I also liked the sense of mystery throughout with the disease and the three men, with details revealed slowly to the reader, making you want to keep on reading to find out the answers. Overall, a great read and I would give it five stars.

I really enjoyed this book. The different take on time travel was interesting. But, the story was not only about time travel, it also involved a mystery that needed to be solved. The author kept my interest as the mystery unfolded and the investigation took place. I was excited to see where the story was going. This book was a fun read and I look forward to seeing more from this author.

This was an enjoyable read that kept my full attention throughout I just couldn’t set it down. I found myself completely pulled in I just couldn’t pull my eyes away I loved every second. I do enjoy a book with time travel as it isn’t something I read very often so it really excites me to read a different storyline. I also loved how the story had entertaining moments that made me chuckle got to love a story that puts a smile on your face at times!!

While this is not my normal genre, I must say, I am FULLY impressed by Nichols world-building ability. Put together four fully-fleshed worlds, one intriguing plot, and a unique heroine and you have the makings for an entertaining and enthralling story. The characters and locales are detail-rich and robust, making you feel as if you can see, smell, taste, and feel everything for yourself. Very well done. 5 stars.

This book was a very detailed original read that kept me captivated throughout. I thoroughly enjoyed the fact that this story was different from any time travel story I have ever read. I really like the main character and her no nonsense personality and other wonderful characters that are in this book. This was full of action, adventure, wonderful places, and a bit of romance. This isn’t the first book I have read by this author and she never disappoints.This definitely a story that you don’t want to miss out on. I highly recommend this book.

Time Tourist Outfitters, Ltd. By Christy Nicholas. One of the best things about this author is that I love the uniqueness of her stories. While this was wildly outside of my reading comfort zone it didn’t hinder my liking this great story. Not my first read by this author and I definitely won’t be stopping as long as she keeps writing. I love the adventure I’ve been taken on in this story. From page one I was drawn in and knew I was in for quite the ride. The characters are complex and well written with a storyline that comes alive before your eyes. The author takes time to get even the smallest details in. If you’re looking for something a bit different and unique this book is just what you need. Five stars and highly recommend.

This was such an unusual but fascinating read. I have read many books by this author but this one looked a little different so I wasn’t too sure about it but it was a really good read. My interest was kept from beginning to end and I loved the unique storyline. I have only recently started reading books about time travel but it seems to be a genre I’m really getting into and so I loved that aspect of this story. As I expected the author attention to detail and beautiful description really added to my enjoyment of the story, she always brings the scenes to life and I love the characters that she creates. I loved Wilda; she was such a great character to read about. She was strong willed, witty and definitely didn’t put it with any funny business!
Time Tourist Outfitters, Ltd was an intriguing read that I thoroughly enjoyed! I definitely recommend it to other readers!

Time Tourist Outfitters, Ltd by Christy Nicholas is a unique and interesting read. It is set in a time where time travel is possible and anywhere and time you want to go to. It is a suspense mystery that also has a lot of history elements to it. The story Christy has weaved is very vivid that you can imagine all that she describes, sometimes a little too much information that sometimes I found myself skimming.The journey was interesting but a little slow for me and I found myself dragging in the beginning to settle down into the story.

Wilda loves what she does, which is providing authentic outfits for time travelers. She has long since retired from her previous job as a Temporal Agent. When a seriously ill time traveler stumbles into her shop, on the brink of death and asking for help, she is called in to once again help the Agency.

Join Wilda in her adventure back in time to where Norsemen and Vikings reside, Africa and North America where indigenous people reside and Christy gives a history lesson on those times and an adventure to boot.

I give it 3.5 stars
