Publisher's Summary

If you could change history, would you?

College graduate Josephine "Josie" Jackson answers "yes" to the question on a survey while visiting the Old West tourist town of Tombstone. The next morning, she wakes up in Indian Territory in the 1840s, where she's given a mission to complete before she can return to her time: to reset history, and prevent the deaths of hundreds of thousands over the next century, by convincing the man responsible for kindling the war between settlers and natives to stay home on the day he's supposed to start the war.

But someone is hunting down time travelers and killing them. Three other women have been sent back to the same time period with Josie's mission. When she stumbles upon what happened to them, she realizes the chances of her getting out of the past alive are not good.

To survive, she'll have to trust the person who's there to stop her from changing history, someone who has every reason to distrust her and only one reason to help her - to save her from the mysterious man who sent her back in time to start with.

    "Hooked from the start"

    I really enjoyed this audiobook and the twists and turns until the end, although I was saddened by the ending. This can be enjoyed as a stand-alone story, but you don't get to the end-end, as there is a semi-cliff hanger that sends the heroine on another adventure. She's not done yet. I was hooked on the story from the first word to the last, and I am dying to know who Carter is and what his true motivation is, but it looks like there are three more books to go until that is revealed. On to the next adventure.

    The narration is fantastic and really makes the audiobook in my opinion!

    I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.

    "First Lizzie Ford Book..The First Of Many!"

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

    Wow, I had no idea what to expect and this was a wonderful, funny, exciting, interesting and sad surprise.
    Josie is at Tombstone with her aunt and uncle who raised her. Her parents are dead and she is trying to figure out how to pay off her student loans on her own. A gift card is offered for answering several questions. This is when she meets Carter...cute, shy, odd and very intelligent.
    A conversation on if you could change history and prevent millions of deaths would you go back in time to change it....well she says yes.
    As it happens Carter and she meet for some drinks, she is getting drunk and he begins talking about some outlandish possibilities of her going back in time in his time machine...well it happens.
    Josie goes back to the 1800's and suddenly everything isn't black and white as she imagines. She meets another time traveler and suddenly she doesn't know who has the honest and moral intentions. The book ends with me dieting to get the next books! Not really s cliffhanger as much as a series..Go Josie...you cannot help but love her.

    The narrator is also a first for me and totally pulled me in...all voices and genders great and she will be a definite name i'll look for...give this book a shot! It is worth the time and cost.

    "West: History Interrupted"

    This is a really fun book. It has lots of action and adventure as well as mystery and danger. Josie thinks Carter is joking about time travel, because it's only on tv right? Then she wakes up in the past. Of course their is a lot to get used to. And she is not sure who to trust including Carter and Taylor who is the local sheriff. The book has some great characters in it. And their is a few surprises at the end. One you may see coming. But the rest.... I felt a bit like Josie I was a bit sad at the end. This was a fast listen it really draws you in and you don't want to stop until it's done. I can't wait for the rest of the series to come out on audio! Great series with nice narration!

    I was given this audio in exchange for an honest review.

    "high five"

    The one thing I can always count on from Lizzy Ford is a story with twists and turns and unpredictability. We are first introduced to Josie in present day. Barely a woman by age but independent due to what life has dealt her. She ends up in a time where what she believes her goal to achieve is quickly dissapates into realization that it was a stream of lies that put her here. While going back in time has given her things she has missed all her life, danger quickly hits the horizon in ways she is not expecting.
    I loved so much about this book, the narration and the characters. I was disappointed with the ending because I wanted something different for Josie but I am very interested to see what is next for her in the next step in the series. High five rating!!!

    Story
    "So much mystery!"

    Who to love? Who to despise? Who to trust? Who to run far away from?

    The answers to all of these questions...all of them, are surprising! These characters are complicated, as complicated as the world the author created.

    Chilling and surprising and frustrating! So many spine tingling moments and a lot of heartbreak.

    It's a series so, how it ends will leave you wanting more. The narrator was really good for this book. She had the tone of the story spot on. Looking forward to the next book.

    "Good Time Travel Story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes for my friends who enjoy time travel books. This was a good historically accurate book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of West?

    When she met Gingus Khan's troops in the final scene. It made me laugh because I knew there be the cliffhanger. I hate those but this one at least finished this story and let you know there was another one coming.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    See question above.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did listen to it in one sitting. it is a quick book.


    Any additional comments?

    I got this ARC via audiobook boom. The narrator fit the story.

    What did you love best about West?

    I love time travel and I love old west stories too so this was a great book for me.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Josie, she is strong and smart.


    Have you listened to any of Lillian Yves’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I believe this was my first narration by Lillian and I was very happy with her performance.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This drew me right in and I wanted to continue to listen until the end. I will be looking for book 2.

    "Fans of Dr Who- This is for you!"
    What did you like most about West?

    Beautifully written and narrated story of a young woman who meets mysterious genius. After a heavy drinking session, mysterious genius offers her a chance to travel back in time to help stop a million people dying. The catch? She must find two men whilst solving a mystery of why she has really been sent back in time-and who wants to stop her. Permanently!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Carter- the mysterious genius has a real hidden depth and I laughed out loud at the conversations between him and Josie.


    What about Lillian Yves’s performance did you like?

    The narrator was brilliant. She really brought the story to life and differentiated the different characters.


    Any additional comments?

    I thought the story was engrossing and I couldn't help myself and bought the following 2 books on kindle so I could find out what happens next! Highly recommend!

    "Time Travelling Story with Elements of a Thriller"

    Lizzy Ford has managed to capture the imagination of her audience with this captivating plot. Recently graduated Josie Jackson is tricked into agreeing to travel back in time with chips in her brain to help her with communicating with the "natives." Her mission is unclear. Her destination is the west. Her clues are Taylor Harris and Running Bear. The resulting trip is fraught with confusion and shroud in mystery. With rival time travellers, the communicating dead, several missing women and potential murders, there is a definite feel of a thriller. Perhaps the best part is that Josie's time travels have only begun. This is the start of a very interesting and promising series.

    This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

    Story
    "Time travel, Love, Murder - Perfect!"
    Where does West rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book ranks very highly - it's the perfect match between narrator and main character which is very important when it comes to choosing between print and audio.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favourite character was Josie - she's incredibly kind and empathetic, almost to a fault but at the same time she knows how to get what she wants.


    Which character – as performed by Lillian Yves – was your favourite?

    Definitely Josie, though I was very impressed with the range of accents in this book and how sensitively they were done.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    LIZZY FORD AND LILLIAN YVES MADE ME CRY. It started somewhere in the last third of the book and didn't stop until about an hour after the book ended, I'm still dehydrated and need a hug.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is the perfect introduction to time traveling fiction - I was dubious when I started but I'm 100% sold on the concept now.
