Cameron Coelho is obsessed with the roaring twenties. So much so, that he is studying for a Ph.D. in history; his dissertation on the social conduct and mores of Evanston, Indiana during the 1920s. Rather a odd subject to begin with, but one it turns out may be the product of fate when he buys some old papers and memorabilia from a aged relative of Candace Louise Bell who had been a locally prominent reporter for an Evanston newspaper.
Seeing a photograph of Miss Bell, Cameron feels an immediate connection to her and begins to research her life in detail. Soon, he learns that Candace’s father and uncle were explorers and scientists of a sort and had allegedly discovered a cave in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California containing the secret of time travel. However, no records currently exist of the cave’s location and it’s location is being sought by Professor Geoffrey Bell, a descendent of the Bell family. Cameron Coelho forges an agreement with Geoffrey Bell allowing him to return to 1925 to do research, meet Candace Bell and to bring back the cave’s location and a quantity of crystals required for the time travel mechanism to function. He is cautioned not to do anything to disturb the existing timeline.
The result is a tale of Coelho’s adventures in 1925 during which he encounters crooks, natural disasters, and a young lady, Candace Bell, with whom he falls madly in love. But does he do anything to change the existing timeline? Readers must answer that question for themselves as they read the book.
Indiana Belle is a delightful novel to read. Cameron is concerned for the timeline, but driven by his love for Candace and willing to risk the future for her benefit. Candace, who initially knows nothing of Cameron’s background, has experienced poor relationships with men in general, and is concerned about her place in the community and her family. They are beset by bootleggers and drug smugglers and must fight external forces as well as figure out their own relationship.
The story is entertaining and suspenseful and should appeal to anyone with an interest in science fiction/time travel, and anyone who is looking for a romantic adventure painted with risk. 5-Stars Clabe Polk

Authors need reviews!
Need reviews? I will provide a FREE honest review for 4-6 fiction books each month from specified genre. Reviews are always FREE, I read the following genre: mystery, crime, and science fiction/fantasy only. No romance, young adult, religious or erotica. As a lifelong reader I do not care for serial series books; I will accept them, but I will review them based on my satisfaction with only the story contained in the volume I reviewed.
Reviews will be posted on your choice of Amazon or Smashwords, Goodreads and Library Thing, Barnes & Noble and/or Kobo. In addition, I will post the reviews on this site, on my Tumblr site and my Pinterest Blog Review Board. My reviews also appear in the Midwest Book Review, Polk's Bookshelf, during the following month.
