Another Together by Lauren James is a mystery-themed short story in her Next Together series of young adult historical science fiction novels with strong f/m romantic elements, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Walker Books.
The series is centred around two young lovers who repeatedly reincarnate throughout history in order to fulfill mysterious missions before being torn apart again. This standalone short story takes place in the 1940s during WWII, and has them attempting to catch a killer at Bletchley Park, headquarters of the code-breaking circle (of which mathematician Alan Turing used to be a part). NB: I don’t know whether this particular short story has any overt sfnal elements in it, but the actual novels involve time travel and future reminiscing over past actions.
Offered in most regions worldwide except Canada & the US, available at multiple retailers.
Free on a long-term series-introductory basis, available in many regions worldwide (except Canada & the US, where these don’t have a publishing deal) @ Amazon UK, Kobo UK, iTunes UK (this was also free in Europe, Australia, and Japan when I checked by adjusting the country codes in the URLs)
The 1st novel in this series, The Next Together, is also free for a limited time as part of a promotion to tie into the recent release of the 2nd novel. You’ll be able to find it by clicking the tag for either the author or the series name on this post (I’d link you directly, but unfortunately it’s a hassle to have to grab whatever random URL that Tumblr/Wordpress/Blogger will see fit to assign a new post and then edit it back into this one and I don’t feel like doing it this late at night, sorry).
