Bad Love Strikes

Bad Love Strikes is a really fun historical fiction/alternative history novel about a group of friends who find a top secret project from World War II. The “White Hold Project” was President Roosevelt’s Plan B should the “Manhattan Project” not work. He tasked Albert Einstein with building a time machine to win the war.
The friend group is well-developed and you quickly feel like you know the characters and understand the group dynamic and their motivations. It doesn’t feel forced and makes the interesting plot all the more enjoyable.
The friends, living in our present, find the secret “White Hold Project,” learn how to use it and go on a mission to save millions of lives from the Holocaust. The adventure is a fast fun ride from there. There are unexpected twists and turns that make for an enjoyable mystery/thriller.
The historical setting is really well done and adds a lot to the story. It transports you to that time period and you live the adventure through the lense of the characters.
All-in-all, I had a really fun time reading this book and would recommend it to anyone who loves a good mystery and/or thriller. If you enjoy history, don’t expect a history treatise, but you should enjoy the setting and details included. I love a good band-of-adventurers story and this one fits the bill nicely. Pick it up and escape the current craziness going on and live in this fictional world for a while. You’ll be glad you did.
