"Time and Regret" offers the reader an inside look at the horrors of WWII , while weaving a complex mystery about wartime art theft. Interesting characters, well-designed plot twists and surprises keep the reader turning the pages, even though the pacing is a bit slow in the beginning when Grace is visiting battle sites and memorials in France. That said, I found those scenes informative, and I even took a couple of detours to look up the Battle of the Somme and to locate pictures of some of the monuments. Fascinating. But once the mystery cranked up it kept me going. I definitely recommend this book.
Emily Sutton-Smith and Scott Merriman were outstanding with the delivery of the story

I have both the ebook and the audio, but I mostly listened to the Audible version of this book. The narrators, Emily Sutton-Smith and Scott Merriman, are excellent.
This book has most of the elements I like in a book - historical fiction, mystery, and just a tad of romance. It alternates between 2 time periods, WWI (1914-1918) and present day (1991) and is told in 2 points of view, Grace in the present day and Grace's grandfather, Martin, during WWI, plus Martin's journals. It did get confusing at times when the story would switch from Martin's journals where he is speaking in first person and then the story switches to third person, but that may be because I was listening to the audio. It was an interesting way of telling the story though.
I liked the way Grace was able to solve the "mystery" using the clues in her grandfather's journals, but it did seem to take her a long time to figure it out.
