Running Through the Wormhole, a CMTS novel by Kate Abbott, is a must read! The novel takes you through a series of traumatic events of the middle-aged lawyer, mother, and wife: Phoebe. The drama starts early on as the character is attacked and raped by two mystery men. During the course of events an even more mysterious man comes and rescues her. From that point on, nothing in Phoebe's life is normal or boring. As the story continues to unfold you learn the truth about her distant husband, the literally ancient history of her rescuer, and the deranged logic of a psychopath. There are constant twists and turns throughout the story that make it easy to keep reading until the unpredictable end.

I would give this story a 3 out of 4 stars. Honestly, I think with a little revising it could easily earn 4 stars. One of the biggest reasons I gave this book only 3 stars is due to the number of errors that I found while reading it.  I love the way the story slips so smoothly between past and present. I did find it interesting that instead of questioning what was going on, all of the characters just kind of go with it and act like nothing happened.  The author did a great job tying up all the lose ends by the end of the book.

This book would make a great read for readers that like a fast-paced story.  It was easy to read this book in one sitting since it is not too long and doesn't offer many good pause points (which is not really a bad thing!)
