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.

My Thoughts

Alternating between wondering how Cameron would approach Candice Bell in 1925, excitedly learning more about life in Evansville Indiana in the 20’s and how it differs from life in the faster paced 21st century, which has a charm of it’s own for this practitioner of modern technology.

The fact that Cameron was given strict instructions to not change the past is one that of course he wrestles with from day one, in the end following his heart is his choice and luckily it is the right one.

We go from 2017 to 1925 in this truly wonderful example of mixing time travel, history and romance to create a read both refreshingly unique as well as very interesting use of character driven story plots.

So happy to have met Cameron and Candice, especially since their story was set in a time that will always be interesting to me even though it was almost 40 years before I was born.

Like all the other books that I have enjoyed written by this author, Indiana Belle was a heartwarming read that is something a broad audience can enjoy without reservations.

If you are looking for a satisfying, steady paced story line, with well developed plus well thought out characters and love to learn about past historical time periods as well as enjoy time travel than you cannot miss out on any of his works of fiction.
