Providence, Rhode Island, 2017. When doctoral student Cameron Coelho, 28, opens a package from Indiana, he finds more than private papers that will help him with his dissertation. He finds a photograph of a beautiful society editor murdered in 1925 and clues to a century-old mystery. Within days, he meets Geoffrey Bell, the "time-travel professor", and begins an unlikely journey through the Roaring Twenties. Filled with history, romance, and intrigue, Indiana Belle follows a lonely soul on the adventure of a lifetime as he searches for love and answers in the age of Prohibition, flappers, and jazz.

I really enjoy John Heldt's novels and this one was no different. This book is interesting and kept my attention.I appreciate the fact that I am also learning a bit of history through his story's and in this novel Cameron Coelho was transported to the 1920's in Evansville, Illinois. Well written. The narrator is great. I would absolutely recommend this book!
I was given this audiobook in return for an unbiased review.
I am just starting out. I hope to build up a Library of reviews. I love stories that take me out of my head into someone elses.
I received this book free as a promotional item. Of course I would not listen to it all if I didn’t enjoy it. I hate wasting time on a book that took a couple of hours of my life. This one I can say I listened to all the way.
There are 4 kinds of Time Travel Stories. The science fiction kind with a lot of jargon talk of space time continuum and “It will be the end of the universe unless we stop it.” Then there is the romantic “I’m going to go back to ancient Scotland to meet a ‘real’ man and marry him”. And there is the fun ‘Back to the Future’ adventures. Then there are, what I call, ‘Cozy Time Travel’ Stories. Where the writer takes you back to a warm, cozy time, when life was simple. These stories are fun if they add some good old fashion conflict to them, while still making you feel good and enjoy the journey. That’s what John Heldt does with Indiana Bell: American Journey Book 3.
One thing to keep your audience turning the pages is to have a dilemma. This story does that, along with a twist ending I didn’t see coming.

The listener gets to time travel back to the 1920's where a possible murder, conspiracy, a bit of romance all come together to keep us entertained.
The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed. Chaz Allen's voice is very pleasant.
"I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator."
I listen all the time
I received this book free from ebalst and this is my unbiased opion. it is a fun book to listen to I enjoyed it. very entertaining.
It contained a lot of bad writing cliches and lacked character development.
It was wrapped up a tad too neatly and quickly. Everyone knows time travel has repercussions. This story had very few.
Honestly, anyone else. This narrator pronounced words wrong and used the wrong inflections over and over again. His voicing of Candice Belle was sort of ridiculous.
Read another book about the early 20th century.
I wanted to like this book - it just wasnt very good.
