Behind the seemingly innocuous facade of St. Mary’s Institute of Historical Research, a different kind of academic work is taking place. Just don’t call it “time travel” - these historians “investigate major historical events in contemporary time.” And they aren’t your harmless eccentrics either; a more accurate description, as they ricochet around history, might be unintentional disaster-magnets.

The Chronicles of St. Mary’s tells the chaotic adventures of Madeleine Maxwell and her compatriots - Director Bairstow, Leon “Chief” Farrell, Mr. Markham, and many more - as they travel through time, saving St. Mary’s Institute (too often by the very seat of their pants) and thwarting time-travelling terrorists, all the while leaving plenty of time for tea.

You think you’re having a bad day? Max is trapped in the same deadly sandstorm that buried the fifty thousand-strong army of the Pharaoh Cambyses II, and she’s sharing the only available shelter for miles around with the murdering psychopath who recently kidnapped her and left her adrift in time.

She’s no safer at St. Mary’s. Tragedy strikes - not once, but several times - and with no Leon, no Markham, and no Peterson at her side, Max’s personal life slowly begins to unravel. From the Egyptian desert to the Battle of Hastings, and from Bayeux Cathedral to the Sack of Constantinople, Max must race through time to save the ones she loves.

Jodi Taylor is, and always has been, a history nut. Her Chronicles of St. Mary's, a wild mix of history, adventure, comedy, romance, tragedy, and anything else the author could think of, began as a self-published book entitled Just One Damned Thing After Another. It's now a bestselling, wildly addictive series.

Reviews for And the Rest is History (#8 Chronicles of St Marys)

<b>Praise for <i>Just One Damned Thing After Another</i> </b> A carnival ride through laughter and tears with a bit of time travel thrown in for spice . . . readers will be impatient for later installments. <i>Publishers Weekly</i>, starred review Taylor does a great job of setting up an appealing cast of characters in this new series opener, most especially the intrepid Max. There is plenty of humor, lots of action, and even a touch of romance. <i>Library Journal</i> Taylor has written a madcap and very funny hodgepodge of a novel whose pacing and humor is reminiscent of a Simon PeggEdgar Wright film. <i>Booklist</i> Danger, romance, history, financial and academic politics, hidden agendas, dangerous assignments, characters you care about, and the feeling that more is going on than you're actually reading about. I can hardly wait for book two. Just One Damned Thing After Another is a true page-turner. <i>SFRevu</i> <i>Just One Damned Thing After Another</i> is a novel that wastes no time getting to the good stuff . . . if character-driven stories are your cup of tea, then you ll find plenty to like. Max is hilarious, and I love her spirited and crafty nature. <i>The Bibliosanctum</i>
