Indiana Belle: 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.
Review: This was a good read.
I really enjoyed the 20s theme of the whole book, it was a really interesting time period to read about. The book describes it as foreign, yet it is still a well-known time period, and also as a very quaint time. A lot of the thoughts on the setting in general was really descriptive and I enjoyed it very much.
I really liked reading about Candice’s character. She was very gutsy and spunky! She actually reminded me of Lois Lane, you know, cause she’s a reporter too. That, and they both have a really funny, yet stubborn side to them that was enjoyable to read. Candice didn’t really seem afraid of anything, and I also thought that was a good character trait to have.
Cameron is more of a dreamer, adventure-seeking character. He jumps at any opportunity to have an adventure, and what better one than time travel? Overall, he had a good heart and always meant well.
The book is fairly slow paced, I had some trouble of it sticking. I was excited throughout the beginning and then the end, but everything in between was a bit slow at certain times. However, the action at the end got me really excited and I finished the book easily from there.
I enjoyed the plot twists. (I figured it out before hand, I feel accomplished!) I don’t want to say anything more about them, for the fear of spoiling it, but I’m just going to say it was a nice basis for the plot.
