My Review

4/5 Stars

York’s day started with a normal walk with his dog around the lake. It ended with finding a girl wrapped in a blue mist. Rather than being afraid, York jumps on the opportunity to help the young women, becoming more intrigued when he finds out the girl is from over a century ago. Kenzie, faced with the deteriorating condition of her grandmother, is approached by York with a quest.

I haven’t read very many time travel romances, but this was an interesting story. It was fast-paced, and there were many subplots to keep the story engaging. This was my first story by Miss McLean, but it was very engaging. This is the type of story that you can get lost in for hours.

The narrator did a great job.

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

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
