I absolutely love time travel books and having read and reviewed both the first and second in this series when asked--I knew I had to read this third installment. Although there is some continuity--it can definitely be read as a stand alone as all the books in this series can. If you missed them you can read my review of September Skys here and Mercer Street here
Now one of the tenets of time travel is--you should never change what is supposed to happen because you will be changing the future as well. Hum, but what happens if you fall in love and the woman is going to be killed on a certain date in a most atrocious manner? Do you allow history to replay as it is supposed to or do you attempt to change it and then attempt to change what that would have changed? Meanwhile you have been charged with finding the cave where the key to time travel is to be found and bring back a bunch of the crystals.
The Roaring Twenties is brought to life, both the good and the bad in this very fast reading novel set in Indiana. Yes, it is one of those novels that I started and finished in less then one day--I could not stop reading. There are a couple of sections that I advise having some tissues handy--especially towards the end. I truly hope you will read this book--I give it 5 stars and if I could I would give it even more!!

Providence, Rhode Island, 2017. When doctoral student Cameron Coelho, 28, opens a package from Indiana, he finds more than private papers that will help him with his dissertation. He finds a photograph of a beautiful society editor murdered in 1925 and clues to a century-old mystery. Within days, he meets Geoffrey Bell, the "time-travel professor," and begins an unlikely journey through the Roaring Twenties. Filled with history, romance, and intrigue, INDIANA BELLE follows a lonely soul on the adventure of a lifetime as he searches for love and answers in the age of Prohibition, flappers, and jazz.
