Meredith Blake is an American student going to school in England. Lodging at Edwards Hall in Exeter she’s charmed by her surroundings. Until weird things start happening to her and she needs to unravel a mystery regarding past residents of the house before she either loses her sanity or her current way of life.

This is mostly a mystery with a paranormal slant and a dab of romance thrown in. The writing is very wordy and at times the character interaction is choppy. This happens consistently throughout the book, so I’m going to assume it’s just the writer’s style. I was confused a lot of the time with the paranormal part of it. I couldn’t grasp why exactly it was happening and basically only to Meredith. The romance doesn’t get much page time at all and came off as kind of an afterthought, but the mystery is what keeps the story moving forward. I enjoyed Meredith’s research efforts and the ending was a surprise. Nice! Keep in mind that this was first pubbed in 1992, so it is a bit aged. (yeesh, like me lol) Overall though it’s a pretty good read. ( )

Crossover is a good time travel mystery. That has a old time feel to the story. Makes you see the country side.
Meredith Blake is a American going to college for a year in England. She is living at Edwards Hall a old manor house dormitory. It is interesting look of how different college life traditions.

While there Meredith starts experiencing things that no one else has seen or felt. She finds herself back in time switching places with Nora a governess. No one can tell them apart. The Mystery is back in the past. I missed how or why they could switch places.

Meredith falls for Peter her tutor Professor who fell in love with the previous American exchange student.

My favorite part was her learning to be a college student and life at living in Edwards Hall. Like Marching together first day of school ect.

It is a light easy read.

I was given this ebook from Net Galley and Open Road Integrated Media and in exchange agreed to give a honest review. ( )

In CROSSOVER, a graduate student arrives in England to begin her thesis and takes up residence in an old hall. Soon she is seeing visions of people dressed in old-fashioned clothing. At first, she doubts her own sanity, but soon she actually changes places with her look-like from an earlier time. This is a fun time-shifting story with romance and mystery. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Beauty, romance, suspense: Judith Eubank handles a timeless mystery with a light, sure touch. Crossover evokes the brooding atmosphere of Daphne du Maurier with the wit, intelligence, and sensibility of Dorothy Sayers. As she adapts to British university life, Meredith Blake, a young American scholar, discovers that Edwards Hall is not the same for her as it is for the others. For her, it is full of riddles and reminders of the Victorian family that had once lived there and the tragedy that overtook them. Intrigued by the mystery hidden in the Hall's past, Meredith begins to explore the manor house and becomes increasingly challenged, baffled, and threatened by what she finds there. Something has singled her out, slowly isolating her from the twentieth-century world she knows.… (more)
