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.

I voluntarily reviewed an audio review copy.

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.

Return to the time following the Civil War

The author gave me copies of the first 2 books in this series to review and I loved them so much that I bought the 3rd one as soon as I finished the 2nd one. This time we meet Drew's daughter McKenzie and York, a visitor from the future. They go back to 1865 Georgia to find an injured girl who had appeared to York. Things don't go quite as planned, adding a wrinkle to the story. I love this time period and was totally involved in this mystery. It was a very satisfying story. If it is the end of the series, it was a fitting ending. But I enjoyed it so much I hope it is not the end.

Wow-time travel and romance

I don't normally read romances and I don't like graphic sex (it wasn't much) but I'll over look it this time. I didn't really know where this story would take me but I enjoyed the trip. It's how a man from the future ( present is 2018) comes to the 21st century and than to the mid 19th century shortly after the civil war. Wow, what a trip. Read it and enjoy it too.

Such a great book!

Between the Shadows is such a great book. I thought nothing could surprise me after the first book in this series. Little did I know Casi McLean would astound me again with this addition.

At first, I was lost with a name change and addition of McKenzie. Then I truly fell head over heels. I did not see a lot of things happening before they did. The last book I foresaw a lot, but in Between the Shadows I was pleasantly surprised numerous times.

Casi did an amazing job again writing such an enigmatic story. She truly knows how to draw the reader in and take them on a time loop adventure. How she developed these story lines; I have no idea! Kristin James is a great narrator as well. I’m only now realizing that there was a different narrator for each story. I truly enjoyed the narration. I could tell each character apart through the narration perfectly. They each had their distinct characteristics.

Overall the whole production was amazing. It flowed so perfectly. I didn’t get lost once and when I have the distractions of my children, it is easy to happen. I am super happy with this audiobook. I never expected to be so swept away with this series, but Casi has been able to make a fan girl out of me!

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.
