DebA reviewed Beneath the Lake Wow! September 22, 2015I read an amazing tale of love that surpassing time and space. A romantic wholesome whimsical tale about second chances, time travel, and rediscovering true love. This may be a long story (398 pages) but it's so worth it in the end. You're in for a big surprise. By the time I finished the story, I was so overwhelmed by happy tears. I couldn't wipe the tears away fast enough. Please make sure to keep a box of tissue handy before you finish the book.

Sometimes the worst moment of your life can lead you to the future you were meant to live. Lacey was witness to her boyfriend's infidelity and her flight from the heart breaking will send her careening into the icy bowels of a frigid lake. She awoke in the arms of her future, while discovering she had been hurtled over thirty years into the past.

Once Lacey realizes she is no longer in the year 2012, she must convince Bobby of events in the future that are about to happen. His huge leap of faith for the intelligent and unusual woman will change his future forever.
For as much as Lacey longs to go home, she realizes home is where her heart is, but there must be a way to return, but how to discover the mystery of the portal is the question. Will she bring devastating changes to the future by being here or was this Fate's plan all along?
Only time will tell, as two hearts come together across time only to be separated again. Is there a time for Bobby and Lacey to be together? At what cost to those they love? Will their love bring doom to future generations?
Beneath the Lake by Casi McLean is a fantasy of romance, of true love knowing no bounds and she has captured the spirit of love in its purest form, even as her characters must face the bizarre circumstances they met under. From pain to joy, to disbelief to believing in miracles, Ms. McLean has created a finely woven tale that flows like a satiny sheet across the mind and heart. Her writing will make a believer out of even the most skeptical of non-believers in love. Let go of reality and take a stroll back in time.Megan S, NetGalley Reviewer ~ 4 StarsBeneath the Lake was my first time travel romance, and I'm sure it won't be my last. There was something about all the details coming together to form a complete story that hooked me. At the end of the book I was in love.The descriptions are what drew me in at the beginning, but slowly I began to fall in love with the characters.Watching this story unfold over decades and the plot twists that came along with it had me nearly in tears at the end of the book. Early in the story, some of the dialogue felt out of place and pulled me out of the story so it took me a bit longer than expected to finish this book. BUT once I got into the meat of the story I was pulled back in and rewarded with gems like this..."His touch ignited desire in the deepest depths of my soul, a burning, bubbling molten lava flowing through my veins. There was no denying we were two parts of one heart."Overall, reading this sparked an interest in a genre I previously had no interest in exploring. I'm excited to see where the rest of the books in the series go.

Beneath the Lake by Casi McLean
I really do admire these time-traveling heroines who manage to stay strong and in control when they discover that they've been transported to a different century. They realize they need to fit in in order to survive. Let's just say I would definitely be one of those people being pulled away by the men in white coats.
What's it About?
Reeling from her boyfriend's indiscretions at a party, Lacey Montgomery escapes into the throes of a torrential storm. Her car spins out of control and hurtles into the depths of an icy, black lake. She awakens in the arms of a handsome stranger, in a place she's never heard of--thirty-four years before she was born. Bobby Reynolds is smitten the moment the storm-ravaged woman opens her eyes. Learning the truth about her origin does nothing to stop the passion taking root in his heart and leaves him torn between finding a way to return Lacey to her time and convincing her stay with him. Will the couple be able to discover the key to a mysterious portal before time rips them apart? Or will their spirits wander forever through a ghost town buried beneath the lake?
When Lacey finds herself in 1949, she's inexplicably drawn to her handsome hunk of a rescuer, Bobby. Although he's her knight in shining armor, she becomes convinced that Bobby is playing her like a fiddle. Not to mention the fact that she could be sucked back to her own time at any moment, and Lacey refuses to give her heart over fully to the young man. Well now isn't that quite a pickle? Although Lacey was wary of Bobby's intentions, I absolutely loved him. He's such a gentleman, and I wish we could have learned more about him. I also wish there would have been a bit more focus on them actually falling love. It seemed like one minute they were trying to find the time travel portal Lacey traveled through, and the next they were smitten like a pair of kittens.
Time Travel Twist
This novel has a unique twist as far as time travel romances go. When Lacey falls back in time the story becomes split between her in the 1950's, as well as a man in 2012 who is apparently plotting Lacey's eventual fall through time. Throughout the entire book we question who this man is, and why he's so set on manipulating Lacey's future/past .... definitely a unique twist that set it apart from your average time travel book.

Series: The end definitely implies there will be a sequel following another character.
Should you read it? ... I can see how it could keep you guessing until the end ... I will admit to staying up until 3 am to finish the toe-curling conclusion of this one.The full review can be found on: romance4thebeach.wordpress.com/
