LoveReading View on Justin Thyme

This debut novel is a terrific blend of action, adventure, espionage and time travel set in the wilds of Scotland and featuring a 13 year old boy who believes that an anonymous gift he's been given will enable him to become a time traveller.  It's a rip-roaring read and one that boys in particular are likely to get excited about.  The second, Thyme Running Out is out as well.

Justin Thyme Synopsis

Justin Thyme is a self-made billionaire living in a castle overlooking Loch Ness. The day he turns thirteen, he receives an anonymous gift: a fabulous watch with a puzzling message hidden on it. When he tells his father of his plans to build a time machine, the Laird of Thyme reveals tantalising fragments of past espionage and warns his son of a ruthless enemy keeping him under constant surveillance. At first, Justin fails to take Sir Willoughby seriously, but when a stranger arrives claiming to be his long-lost grandfather, Justin is wary - especially after his beloved Nanny insists the old man is an impostor. Suddenly, the race against time is on. Can Justin convert his vintage motorbike into a time machine, rescue his mum and discover the identity of their resident spy in less than a week ...or will the dreaded Thyme Curse claim another life?
