Synopsis

BENEATH THE LAKE, BOOK 1

A ghost town submerged beneath Atlanta’s famous man-made Lake Lanier reportedly lures victims to a watery grave. But when Lacey Montgomery’s car spins out of control and hurtles into the depths of the 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. When the 2012 lawyer tangles with the 1949 hunk, fire and ice swirl into a stream of sweltering desire.

 

Bobby Reynolds is smitten the moment the storm-ravaged woman opens her eyes. Learning the truth about her origins does nothing to stop the passion from taking root in his heart, and leaves him torn between finding a way to return Lacey to 2012 or convincing her stay with him.

 

The desperation to find her way home dissolves as Lacey falls in love with a town destined to be submerged, and the man who vows to protect it. Will the couple be able to discover the key to a mysterious portal before time rips them apart? Or will their star-crossed spirits wander forever through a ghost town buried beneath the lake?

Synopsis

BEYOND THE MIST, BOOK 2

 

Piper Taylor concedes she’ll never fall in love, until a treacherous storm spirals her into the arms of the handsome Nick Cramer. Unrelenting remorse over a past relationship haunts Nick, but he can’t deny the mysterious connection and hot desire Piper evokes.

The allure of a secret portal hidden beneath Atlanta’s Lake Lanier tempts him into seizing the opportunity to change his mistakes. But his time slip triggers consequences beyond his wildest dreams.

Can Piper avoid the international espionage and terrorism of 2001 New York, find Nick, and bring him home before he alters the fabric of time, or will the lovers drift forever Beyond the Mist?

Synopsis

BETWEEN THE SHADOWS, BOOK 3

She never expected to confront deadly villains…

let alone fall in love with one…

After her friend, York, encounters the ghostly image of a young woman, Mackenzie Reynolds seizes the opportunity to initiate a time jump, thrusting them back to 1865 Georgia. Resolved to thwart the girl’s untimely fate, Kenzi stumbles into a deadly conflict over a stockpile of stolen Confederate gold.

An injured Civil War survivor, James Adams departs for home with a war-fatigued companion he’s determined to help. After pilfering a horse and kidnaping a woman, he never dreamed his hostage would steal his heart.

Good morning Nick and Piper. I’m so glad we could arrange this get-together. You’ve been quite busy lately. But our readers are anxious to know about the real you, so pardon me if we get a little intimate today. Let’s begin with Nick.

What event in your past has left the most indelible impression on you?

If I told you that, I might… Read more “An Interview Beyond The Mist”

Lake Lanier Mysteries

Author Tena Stetler Interviews Casi McLean

Author Tena Stetler Interviews Casi McLean, author of the Lake Lanier Mysteries, the second book, Beyond the Mist , which releases in a few days on September 15, 2017! Hi Casi, I see you’ve brought a couple friends with you.

Casi-Head-Shot-250x255.jpg

 

Yes I sure have. This is Nick Cramer and Piper Taylor from Beyond the Mist.

Oh goodie, more victims, uh — I mean guests. (Tena rubs her hands together gleefully.)  Pull up a chair, grab a drink of your choice from the cooler, a Chocolate Chip or Peanut Butter cookie from the plate.

 Casi, first tell us about writing Beyond the Mist.

Beyond The Mist took shape as a sequel to Beneath The Lake in my Lake Lanier Mysteries. The eerie lore attached to the ghost town that sleeps beneath the surface of Lake Lanier fascinates me. And creating a time portal hidden in Reynolds Cove bubbled so many stories to the surface, I could write for years and still have fodder. That said, my own passion about the 9/11 tragedy, how the details are already slipping into silent corners of history books, coupled with a real and present danger facing the world, I felt compelled to share this story.

Was it fun or difficult? I read and researched so much to make sure my facts were accurate, but watching live videos and History Channel documentaries for days on end ripped through me like nothing I’ve written about before. That was extremely difficult!

Do your characters always act as you expect? A better question might be does my writing describe my characters well. They truly have a mind of their own and nudge my muse endlessly to be heard.

Are you a plotter, or fly (write) by the seat of your pants? I’m totally a panster. I can’t start a story until I know my characters…what they look like, who they are inside, their hopes and dreams as well as their baggage and not so pleasant qualities. They write my stories. I simply try to keep up.

What are you working on now? 

Between The Shadows, Book #3 in my Lake Lanier Mysteries. I’m on chapter 9, so depending on my available writing time, maybe this time next year. I submitted Beyond The Mist last February and the publication date is September 15, so the process takes time. That said, the story is flowing so well now, I can’t wait to seclude myself and write away.

Now let’s find out a little about Nick Cramer.

Thanks for stopping by Nick.  Do you mind answers a few questions?

Not at all.  Shoot!

Tells us about the real you—

   What event in your past has left the most indelible impression on you? If I told you that, I might ruin the story for a lot of people. I will say a glimpse into the past of your future is priceless.

 What do you most value? Definitely my family and friends, especially a certain blonde who completely stole my heart.

 What is the type of woman you want to spend the rest of your life with? The perfect woman for me is one who brings out the best in me.

 What do you consider most important in life? I used to think my law career was the most important mark I could make on the world. But now I’d say relationships…it’s the people not the places or things that make life worth living.

What is your biggest secret? Telling you would defeat the purpose of a secret now, wouldn’t it? I’ll just say murdering someone can really mess with a guy’s head.

I should say so, not to mention the legal consequences.  Okay, Piper your turn.

I’m ready — I think. (laughs nervously)

Who were the biggest role models in your life? Lacey Montgomery. We grew up together and she’s like a sister to me. But I’d have to include her husband, Rob and my Aunt Alice.

What kind of man do you want to spend the rest of your life with?  My knight in shining armor is a man who loves me for me, someone who gets me, respects me and has my back no matter what. Of course if he’s hot, sexy and can curl my toes with a kiss, I wouldn’t mind at all.

What kind of man would you never choose? As far as I’m concerned, a man who is all about himself, his needs, his wants, his desires…he’s not for me. I put my man first and I want a man who does the same for me.

What is most important to you in life? My parents died when I was little and I Aunt Alice raised me. Lacey’s family became mine when my aunt died and I can’t imagine anything more important than my family.

What is your biggest fear? After popping in and out of time and seeing up front and personal the horror of the September 11, 2001 tragedy in New York, my fear is our world could self-destruct if people blindly live their lives in ignorance. People need to wake up and unite against terror lurking in the shadows.

 

Thanks so much for joining us Piper and Nick.

Beyond The Mist Reviews

 Beyond the Mist by Casi McLean gets Stellar Reviews

Amazon Customer Review

By Showmethelove on September 17, 2017

Beyond the Mist, the sequel to Beneath the Lake poses the question of what might happen if you could go back to the harrowing day of September 11th? CAN you change history? SHOULD you change history?

It poses the further question of what may happen to our world if we as a society cannot decide to solve issues with discussion rather than violence.

Don’t we all wish we could go back and fix the wrongs we have done to those we care for?

All of the familiar characters from Beneath the Lake are present but Nick has unfinished business with his old girlfriend, Carly.

Without spoiling any of the great moments of this story I will tell you the following:

As a native New Yorker and a Manhattanite, everything about Septemebr 11th is etched into my brain. The sights the smells the stupid details-everything.
Reliving it in a small way in this story, I was pulled into the feelings of Nick when he realizes he can travel back to that fateful day via the power of Lake Lanier’s turbulent depths and the genius of Sandy and “Tess.”

Casi McLean does a great job catching the reader up with the aftermath of the first story and the buildup to Nick’s journey.
All I can say is once I started reading, I couldn’t stop turning the pages. I was mesmerized to the point that I missed my stop on the subway! The story builds as the reader and Nick relive that gut wrenching day and he tries to right the wrong he’s convinced he has done.

Beyond the Mist is a story about the steadfast love, how good people strive to honor the living and the dead, the powerful grip of guilt and memory and the blessing of redemption.

Favorite line: “The wind at the tower felt more like an entity, a presence constantly murmuring its own secret song.”

GoodReads Review

Petula rated it it was amazing  Sep 14, 2017Petula rated it it was amazing 

Nick Cramer has always blamed himself for his girlfriend dying in the 9/11 attacks. Now he has a chance of going back in time and saving her. He has been told it’s wrong to tamper with the time line, so he will go in secret.

Piper Taylor has been at her best friend’s hospital bedside for a week while she has been unconscious. Now she knows her friend is recovering, it’s time to find Nick.

You have to concentrate when your reading this because our characters are messing about with time and causing all sorts of chaos. Our hero is a good man with his heart in the right place but is rather impetuous. Our brave heroine will go through hell to make things right for everyone. I can’t really tell you more about it without disrupting the space-time continuum.

This is the second book in the series. I haven’t read the first, but still understood what was happening. I think I would have liked to read the other first because this one has spoilers for it. There is a little teaser at the end for book three and I can’t wait to read it.

Dianne

Lake Lanier holds the secrets of “time” beneath its surface and for one family who has become its protectors and stewards, it is their own lifeline to the past. For confirmed single girl Piper Taylor and the handsome Nick Cramer, a brutal storm on a dark night makes the perfect, if unusual backdrop for attraction, past regrets, and determination.

Nick knows he has found a special someone in Piper, but in his past is a woman he let down and she died, a brutal and terrifying death. Knowing the magic of Lake Lanier, Nick braves the depths to return to the year 2001, just before the horrors of 9/11. Will Nick try to change history to assuage his guilt? He must be stopped and Piper has volunteered to travel back, but this time, her journey will be through an untried machine that could leave her lost in time or worse.

Can Piper stop Nick from destroying the fabric of time, changing history and altering the future? BEYOND THE MIST by Casi McLean takes us back to the nightmare of the 9/11 attacks, the brutality of innocent lives lost and a race against time itself as Piper risks everything, including her heart to bring Nick home before he alters time.

The idea of time travel, of being able to go back and undo past mistakes is something we have all thought about in one way or another. But we have all realized that one tiny change risks the butterfly effect.

Casi McLean’s tale is romantic, intriguing and her characters are endearing. Some we have met before, but one can see they are the heart and soul of a magical tale that is almost timeless! Fabulous writing and an opportunity to imagine what you would do, what you would risk to fix the past, or if you are strong enough to leave history as it stands.

 on Amazon, GoodReads, & a Blog Review 

Liz O’Connor

Thursday, September 14, 2017

Warning: This book might traumatize you from true past events. I feel quite stressed as I write this.

This is, without doubt, the darkest time travel novel I have ever read. It is also the most complex with the future and the past constantly changing with upsetting results.

But that being said, I never stopped reading. The story is well written and has a real message for the world to take heed. Our current situation is very close to self-annihilation. And unlike the story, we have no ability to undo any disasters in our future once they occur.

You probably shouldn’t read this late at night. I probably won’t get a bit of sleep tonight. However, it is absolutely worth reading…just don’t expect it to be fun. But I do expect you’ll keep reading.

 

Review for Casi McLean’s Beyond the Mist

 

By Tena Stetler

Dedicated to the victims of the September 11, 21 terrorist attack on United States soil, Beyond the Mist was written with author Casi McLean’s deepest respect and compassion for their families and friends.  That being said, this tale is an exciting fictional prospective of the possibilities of time travel and bad decisions made for the right reasons.

Beyond the Mist returns to a tiny hamlet nestled in the north Georgia Mountains and the eerie Lake Lanier.  Is it cursed or is something else going on here? A prototype time machine perhaps taking advantage of a seismic shift creating a portal though time in Lake Lanier? Unauthorized use can cause unbelievable consequences to the timeline for those involved and those not.

Nick Cramer blames himself for the death of former girlfriend, Carly Patterson, if only he could go back in time to right his perceived wrong. Piper Taylor is willing to risk her life to save Nick from himself and the disastrous results of his actions during his time-slip to 2001. Can they correct results of Nick’s well-meaning actions in time to set the timeline on the right path? Will Nick realize that Piper is may well be his destiny?

The events swirl around the days leading up to and during September 11, 2001.  The actions of the character’s will keep you enthralled until the very last page.

I loved this book! An exciting, unique tale of time travel adventure with second chances at true love. Twists and turns in Beyond the Mist will keep you flipping pages until the end when you close the book and wonder what’s next in the world beyond the mist.”

My rating Five Stars

Let’s take a peek between the pages of Beyond the Mist.

A soft mist hovered over the moonlit lake, beckoning, luring him forward with the seductive enticement of a mermaid’s song. Rhythmic clatter of a distant train moaned in harmony with a symphony of cricket chirps and croaking frogs. Spellbound, Nick Cramer took a long breath and waded deeper into the murky cove. Dank air, laden with a scent of soggy earth and pine, crawled across his bare arms. The hairs on the back of his neck bristled, shooting a prickle down his spine that slithered into an icy pool coiled in the pit of his stomach. He clenched his fingers into a tight fist, determined to fight through the emotion consuming him. Fear sliced through his belly like icy shards until he finally heaved, forcing rancid bile to choke into his throat.

I have to do this––he inched forward––only a few more steps and––

A sudden surge swirled around him, yanking him into a whirling vortex, where a violent blue streak dragged him deeper, deeper beneath the lake into the shadowy depths. Heart pounding, he battled against the force, twisting, thrusting toward the surface with all of his strength but, despite his muscular build, he spun like a feather in wind into oblivion. When the mist dissolved, Nick Cramer had vanished.

****

Darkness consumed him, a cyclone spinning, twisting Nick as he ripped through an endless void. His lungs burned for oxygen. He could hold his breath no longer, and relinquished his resolve, but he felt no pain. Instead, a sense of serenity encircled him as if he were floating, weightless, breathless, helpless on a cloud of warm air…then the abyss abruptly imploded. Pierced by a brilliant violet-blue light that shattered into a kaleidoscope of color, the tempest hurtled him, whirling, snaking boundlessly until he finally burst through the surface, gasping for air.

He filled his lungs to capacity, breathed in and out several times before opening his eyes to assimilate the greenish blur surrounding him. Instinctively dog-paddling to stay afloat, he stared at a rustic old wooden bench situated atop a ridge above until his head stopped swimming. He had survived the tumult that ripped his body through Lord knows what and challenged him physically and emotionally to the limits few men could endure. And for what, to end up exactly where he started?

“Noooooo.” His blood-curdling moan cut through the silence.

He slapped his hand across the water, scooping a splash that flew around him. There was nothing more he could do. He tried. He risked his life to set things right, to offset the tragic event that had haunted him for eleven years, but he always knew the chance equated to that of a snowball in hell.
