Book Review-Camp Lake (Carson Chronicles Book 5)-John A Heldt

Monday, October 7, 2019

I read every single one of the Carson Chronicles (and in order much less). I waited impatiently for the next in the series to be published. This is a time travel saga that should not be missed!

It chronicles the time travels of the 5 Carson siblings as they go on a search for their parents--through time. So much happens within these 5 books to each of the siblings--Love, Marriage, Heartbreak and every other emotion you can think of. They meet people from the past --some not so nice--some wonderful. But they never totally lose hope that they will find their parents. Meanwhile their parents are desperately trying to find them--but they always seem to miss each other.

In this last book of this series, the twins are the focal point--as are the parents (but in their teenage form). All I will say there is a happily ever after for all 5 siblings!

I am so sorry to see this series end--I could keep reading about this family for a very long time!

I received an e-book from the author for my enjoyment and a possible review.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Phoenix, Spring 1983. For the Carsons, five siblings from the present day, it has come down to this. Find the parents they have chased through time for more than two years or go home and resume their lives without them.

While Adam and Greg remain in Arizona and Natalie searches the country for leads, Cody and Caitlin travel to a summer camp in Maine, where their mother and father met as counselors. The twins, now 19, hope to intercept the older versions of their parents even as they work beside the younger ones.

All of the Carsons prepare for a reunion that seems inevitable. Then tragedy strikes one family member and seductive strangers pull two others in unhelpful directions as a summer of promise turns into one of uncertainty and sacrifice.

Filled with humor, romance, and heartbreak, CAMP LAKE, the poignant conclusion of the Carson Chronicles series, follows the lives of several spirited adults as they confront choices and change the era of big hair, space shuttles, and video arcades.
