Publisher's Summary

How many lifetimes would you travel to find a love that lasts for ever? When single career girl Jo-Jo steps onto a zebra crossing and gets hit by a car, she awakes to find herself in 1963. The fashion, the music, her job, even her romantic life: everything is different. And then it happens three more times, and Jo-Jo finds herself living a completely new life in the 1970s, 80s and 90s. The only people she can rely on are Harry and Ellie, two companions from 2013, and George, the owner of a second-hand record store.

If she's ever to return from her travels, Jo-Jo must work out why she's jumping through time like this. And if she does make it back, will her old life ever be the same again? Step back in time with this fabulously fun and feed-good comedy of time travel and romance, from the author of From Notting Hill with Love... Actually

Cute, but definitely not a page turner.

Given the previous reviews I was a little disappointed, but really it is just what was written on the box. A totally unbelievable plot line with almost no intrigue and a rather lame Beatles theme that doesn't offer much to anyone who is not a real fan, nevertheless it was entertaining if you just want something light and easy. Narrator did a good job in bringing the characters to life.

Enjoyable and fun

Would you consider the audio edition of Step Back in Time to be better than the print version?

The audio version brings people to life and the narrator makes a very good job of it

What did you like best about this story?

The idea of going back in time was fun and intriguing

Which scene did you most enjoy?

There are no scenes I like particularly over another they just follow each other smoothly, although was less keen on the 80's

Any additional comments?

This is the first book of Aly McNamara I read but will not be the last one. I really like her style. It is a real "page turner". Probably one of my fav in this genre. I even listen to it twice. Once for the story and once to find back all the hints about the Beatles. A must listen story.

a good time travel story.

Any additional comments?

this is the first story I have listened to by this author and I enjoyed it.
the link through the decades are the songs of the pop group the beatles and jo-jo's memories of the things she misses from 2013.
after the end of the story is the links to all things beatle related and I didn't know some of them.
a wander down memory lane if you have lived through the decades.
Katie scarfe did a good job performing the book.

Step Back In Time by Ali McNamara

Who was your favorite character and why?

George was my favorite character because you always knew he knew more than he was letting on, but wanted the main character Jo Jo to experience things for herself.

What about Katie Scarfe’s performance did you like?

Oh yes, very much.

Any additional comments?

Can't wait for the next Ali McNamara novel.

Disappointing!

Usually I love Ali McNamara books so I was really looking forward to relaxing with this…however this latest offering left me very disappointed. The storyline is a good idea in theory but I found it disjointed especially as I know the main location setting very well. Had to listen to it twice to see if It got better on the2nd listen…I won’t be giving it another listen - which is rare for my audio book collection.
