📕My Review

American student Cameron Coelho is writing his doctoral dissertation on the subject of the 1920s when some private papers and a sepia photo of newspaper society editor Candice Bell come into his possession. He becomes smitten with the beautiful woman in the photo but learns she became the victim of murder in 1925. Cameron meets Professor Geoffrey Bell, her descendant and expert in time travel. With Geoffrey's help Cameron travels back in time to Indiana in 1925. Can Cameron change the course of history and prevent a tragedy from happening?

Indiana Belle is a delightful story set mainly in the 1920s. In my opinion the author conjures up the period perfectly by referencing real events and real people of the era. The characters of our two protagonists, Cameron and Candice, are fully developed and I found myself totally absorbed in their lives. Indiana Belle is a charming story and upon reflection I feel as though I've read something special.

My thanks to author John A. Heldt for providing me with a copy of this book.

📗The Blurb

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.
