(review request submitted by the author for an honest critique)
Time travel stories and movies capture viewers’ interest because many of us have pondered when and where we would go, if given the opportunity. I myself have considered, many times over, whom I would like to meet.
In Between The Shadows, Casi McLean takes us back in time to the Civil War era. There, readers are thrust into one suspenseful moment after another while York and Kenzi attempt to save a woman’s life without altering the present.
That’s the real issue with time traveling… you can’t alter history. York took steps to make sure history was left intact. (For you history buffs, you’ll be pleased to know the missing Confederate gold is the main focal point in the plot and Casi addresses it again before we reach The End.)
Whether you are traveling to the past or coming to the present, the experience can be overwhelming. On the trip to the present, this is where Casi does a fantastic job of showing how our simple luxuries can be confusing to a person.
Suspense, love, bit of history, couple surprise moments, and a HEA……. All of these combine to make a story readers will want to relive time and time again.

3 Responses to Between The Shadows: Lake Lanier Mysteries by Casi McLean (Book Review)
Thank you, Kam, for hosting me on your wonderful blog. I hope your readers enjoy this third saga in my time travel romantic suspense Lake Lanier Mystery’s series. Between The Shadows brings the series full circle and many say this third story is their favorite of the three books. I think Between The Shadows is my favorite as well. As I researched and wrote Between The Shadows, I had so much fun delving into the post Civil War era and the missing confederate gold. The conclusion fell into place, tying all three stories together into a space time continuum loop to satisfy anyone’s yearning for a satisfying happily ever after.
I think a reader would find enjoyment in any of your books. You create wonderful stories.
