The Chronicles of St. Mary's

I don't remember where I heard about "Just One Damned Thing After Another", the first in The Chronicles of St. Mary's series but I started reading it in Florida on one of the family business trips. I may have run across in the Barnes & Noble. 

I loved it and couldn't wait to read the next and the next. 

Madeleine Maxwell runs into an old teacher who encourages her to apply for a job at St. Mary's, an institution connected to her old college. Madeleine comes from a troubled past and has difficulty with authority. Since graduation, she has been happily traveling the world working on archeology sites. 

She has to sign an official secrets pledge before being let in on what the job really entails. St. Mary's investigates history as it happens. Time travel and "Max" can't wait to join up. The title tells it: Max is plunged into adventure after adventure.  The pace is quick as the wit. And you get little history lessons along with.
