Beyond the Mist By Casi McLean This is the second in the Lake Lanier Mysteries. It is now about Nick and Piper. Nick thinks that he can save his old girlfriend Carly from the devastation that was 911. Piper volunteers to go after Nick after he used Sandy’s time machine. When he ended up just before the twin towers would have been destroyed, he messes up the whole timeline. Which means that since he was no longer in their timeline Lacey dies in the lake. The whole wild ride gives the reader chills and wishing they too could go back in time to fix something or to save someone. The end leaves a cliffhanger that gives the reader some hope in there being another story. I really enjoyed this book. At first, it was kind of hard to get into but once it got going it flew by. I love a good story that will give not only give you a good feeling and an HEA. I think this book deserves at least a 4.5 but they don’t let you give out that score so I will give it 5 out of 5 stars. I really really hope that there will be more in this series.

What A Ride! This is #02 in the Lake Lanier Mysteries Series. HEA with No cliffhangers! I HIGHLY suggest reading them in order to get the best experience. These are too connected. Content Advisory: There is mild sexplay. This involves the events of 9/11 up close and personal, and may be upsetting to some. This story picks up right at the ending of the first. I really hope you've read or listened to the first one, because you won't be lost so much as behind. You are thrust into the thick of things really quickly and the ride never stops or pauses. It's great, but more meaningful to those that are up to speed already. And to those that think they know whats going on because of past experience, I say to you, that was only the ground work and you will still have so much to learn. Nick Cramer and Piper Taylor shared charged moments together on the night of the big storm that was at the center of book one. They have an undeniable chemistry despite their shared opinions on falling in love. They are mystically drawn to one another, even through time. Nick gets caught up in his past to the point he jeopardizes his future, and everyone else's as well. I really wish I could say more because this is so good, but it would be easy to spoil something. It is an intense roller coaster ride that had my stomach in my throat in anticipation of the outcome. It ended a bit too fast, but the little nugget left in the last few words says there is a method to that madness. Casi McLean is an author I can count on to take me on a fun but ultimately loving ride! I look forward to next one. Amy Deuchler was excellent with all character types. Her performance aloud me to get lost in the adventure!. Normal speed was fine. Ebook obtained through my local library (Overdrive). Audiobook obtained at my request and I am voluntarily leaving this unbiased review.

Enjoy the first of this series then dive in . . . Sci-fi Time Traveling Mystery Romance . . . Piper and Nick have that chance meeting that sends them both a jolt of realization. This journey for the two of them starts off well in good in the present time but slips to the past with good intentions and not so good possible outcomes. Nick had once loved and lost and still held on to those tragic results. He now have another chance at love and finds that he wants to amend the past with the present. Not quite seeing straight or fully grasping the consequences of his decision. He goes head first in to the waters of Lake Lanier and slips further Beyond the Mist. There was much here. The writing was good. The characters were rich and flawed. The imagery was vivid. The heavy subject of 9/11 and the events that took place on that day will forever be a subject that needs to be handled in the right way when approaching it. There will always be someone that finds offense in the events of that day. There will be those that want very much to change that day, but we have to understand it was the past and even the simplest change to that day could have ramifications that could make things a 100x worse. I found that the way in which Casi approached the events was constructed well. She gave a different view. She showed that events of the world happen and it could have a lasting effect on you but its you that makes the choice to move forward with you life. Going back and changing those events could in fact change everything that followed. I enjoyed watching how Piper and Nick navigated the events of their present and then once they slip in to the past. There was suspense, action, drama, and intensity. But most of all they had each other and the love they were building with each other. Narrator Amy Deuchler did justice to this piece. She had the diction, clarity, and pacing down. The audio ran smooth. I could detect no lengthy pauses, gaps and no hiccups. I enjoyed it more after the feel the narrator out phase and was able to kick up the speed. This provided me with more like a picture playing in my head.

Right from the first page, I realized that reading the first in the Lake Lanier Mysteries (Beneath the Lake) would have been a good idea. However, while Beyond the Mist is a continuation of Book 1, you can still enjoy Book 2 on its own, once you acclimate yourself to the setting, characters, and circumstances. Time travel is always an intriguing subject, but Casi McLean puts a unique spin on it. Beyond the Mist is filled with romance across time, a portal beneath a lake shrouded in mystery, and the opportunity to change the past. But as in many books about time travel, the ripple effect of changing the past rears its unpredictable head. While the romance between Nick and Piper sweetens the deal, the overall story is dark, confusing, complex, and maybe even depressing. So many of us would love the chance to change the events on September 11, 2001 or any dark time in history. But as you will find in Beyond the Mist, slipping through that rip in time can create more consequences and mystery than what is expected, causing even more chaos and problems. For me, at least, perhaps the real question isn’t how can we go backward in time to change the past, but how can we stop those ugly events from happening in the first place?

Being a fan of time travel novels I expected to treat myself to "Beyond the Mist". Felt a bit let down because reading Lake Lanier Mysteries, #1 is a must of which I had not experienced. Present day travel back to US's most epic time September 11, 2001. Leaving the love of his life Piper behind; Nick Cramer stealthily prompts a trip back to 2001 to overt the death of a friend that has haunted him for years. Interesting plot of a lake that with the help of a time machine holds a portal to the past. Events Nick alters in the past has tragic repercussions to his friends in the present.
