Between the Shadows

Time travel at its finest! This book is the 3rd in the Lake Lanier Mysteries series. While it can be enjoyed as a stand alone, it is definitely more mind blowing when the books are read/listened to in order.

The present day mystery of the ghost of the lake has prompted a time jump to over 160 years in the past. Saving one person could lead to sacrificing another and possibly changing the future (present) as it is known.

Casi McLean has woven a very detailed tale. The twists and turn kept me guessing and the mind blowing reveal at the end was awesome!

The narration by Kristin James was very enjoyable. Great timing, emotion and differing voices. I would not hesitate to listen to more of her performances.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Loved it

I loved this book. Time travel romance is one of my favourite genres so I couldn't wait to jump into this story.
I probably should have started at book one to get a complete picture and full enjoyment but this book can easily be listened to as a standalone.
The narration was very good and made very easy listening. The characters were performed excellently.
The story line was different and intriguing. I couldn't wait to see what happened next and I wanted to listen to the story in one sitting.

This was a very good, entertaining listen and I will be checking out the earlier books in the series.

Fascinating from the very start

Wow what an interesting book this is. I love time travel and this was better then most. Not reading/listening to the first two did make it a tad confusing in the beginning so if you are in to time travel I would pick up at least the first one as I have no doubt you will be back for this one. For example it took me half the book to figure out if York was from the past or the future, it didn’t matter which it was as it makes no difference in the book I am just one of those readers who wants all the answers. Anyway. I loved the storyline, I can’t wait to get the first two books and meet Sandy and to find out York’s story. The ending was PERFECT! Definitely recommend

Great Book

This book is a awesome roller coaster through time. I absolutely love the time travel box. I feel like there is not enough out there. This take on time travel is very unique to anything that I’ve ever read before. The author weaves a tale where it is seamless and you don’t have an issue following the different timelines. You really feel like you are in each time zone. Your work is probably one of my favorite main characters and McKenzie are just amazing.

This is the first book that I’ve heard Kristen James narrator and I think she did an absolutely phenomenal job. There were characters in the book that had different accents and to me they did not sound fake at all. Her pace and tone overall it was very consistent which for me is important because a narrator can really make or break and audiobook and I had no issue listening to her at all.

The production of the audiobook is the way they sound was really consistent. There was no back noise from what I could hear.
I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Casi McLean. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

3rd in a time travel romance series

**3.5 Stars**
Keep in mind that this is the third book in the series and I recommend reading them in order to attempt to keep things straight- which is hard to do when time travel and multiple timelines are in play. This book has it's own standalone romance but the world building is a continuation.

There was two different timelines/relationships going on in this story. First there is York and Izzy. York is out of his own time (his origins from a previous book), living in the modern world when he meets Izzy, a young woman who was thrust from the past into the modern time with no memories. The other relationship is with Kenzie, granddaughter to the inventor of the time travel device who goes back in time to help York on his quest to help Izzy- and inadvertently gets kidnapped by James. I loved their story, I rooted for them to find love regardless of the short interaction (but probably because I am a sucker for the enemy to lover trope (or kidnapper to lover??).

This is now the fourth book I have read by this author, in two different series and she is great at making the reader aware of the attraction between characters. BUT in every book she talks about the character loins/groin tingling (and occasional clenching) a lot (in all the books) to indicate that they are aroused/attracted to the love interest. I personally have never had tingling loins and I found it slightly off putting. There are so many ways to indicate attraction and lust, I think this is my least favorite. But that is just a personal preference and I might not have noticed or been bothered by it but I read two of her books back to back.

Overall this was another interesting romantic installment to the time travel series, this time having two relationships with HEA and a new setting of the Civil War area.

I listened to the audiobook, where there was only one narrator (with one voice so everyone sounded the same) even though there were multiple character views and timelines so I was occasionally confused as to who was talking or what was happening. I think I might have enjoyed this better if I had read it instead of listening.

Between the Shores

I really enjoyed the audio version Between the Shadows, the third installment from Casi McLean’s series, Lake Lanier Mysteries. Kristin James did a fantastic performance while narrating this story. There was a lot of it that I love to read, action, adventure, romance and history. It was a perfect mix for me.

I am giving Between the Shadows five plus stars. It was my favorite of the series. I would love to read more by this author in the near future.

I received the audio version of this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.

Beautiful Story

Circumstances pulled York a hundred years into the past. As he learns to adapt to his new surroundings, he begins to accept that he never truly belonged into his own time. Just as he thinks that he can finally accept where he is, he stumbles upon a woman in trouble. A woman who came directly from the 1860s.

I really did enjoy this book very much. I do feel like it could have used a bit of work. Compared to the first two books, it fell a bit flat. I hate saying that. It's not a horrible book at all. It could have just used a bit of flair and something. I can't quite explain what it's missing. I guess a bit of suspense in a few places. I'm probably just being a snob. I will state that there are a few triggering parts of the book. They are brief.

I really can't say that I felt a connection to either of the main characters. I did empathize with their predicament. I think the one I felt most connected to was the granddaughter. She was strong and fierce and knew what she wanted out of life. She also made it her mission to try to help people live as long as they possibly could. She knows death is inevitable for all of us, but she strives to push it off as far as possible for most. That's why she became a doctor.

This book was narrated by Kristin James. I really enjoyed the narration. Her transition was very smooth. I don't believe she stumbled over anything or left anything out. I also loved how distinct she was with all of the characters. She didn't narrate the first two books. I believe each book had a different narrator. I can understand why. They all had different main characters as well.

I really did enjoy this book. I didn't enjoy it as much as I did the first two. I just felt something major was missing. I felt it could have used a bit more suspense and build up. I'm pretty sure that most of the feelings I have are personal. I'm not sure if anybody will have the same opinion as me. Despite my misgivings of what's missing, it really is a wonderful book and well worth the read.

A really good listen

I enjoyed listening to this story. I have not read or listened to this author before but I would love to read or listen to her other books. I liked the plot and feel that it moved along at a steady pace. There were things I questioned but not so much that it took away from the story at all. I liked how everything comes together and thought it was a great story. I liked the characters and their love interests. I thought they were matched up pretty well. I enjoyed listening to the narrator as well. She had a an easy and pleasant voice to listen to. She read at a good pace and was easy to understand. I would definitely listen to another books she reads. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys romance, time travel, and a overall great story.

New author to me

I was unsure where the storyline was going but I continued on in the audiobook to see. I'm glad I did as it did pick up and got interesting, then the action came. It was exciting to listen to how they went back and forth in time and problem solved. plus the old fashioned love, they have the feelings but they didn't just jump into bed. I fell in love with York immediately and absolutely loved his letter at the end (this way I don't give anything away)
