The Book Junkie Reads . . . BENEATH THE LAKE (Lake Lanier Mysteries, #1) . . . This was another world of reading. I was sucked down the drain right with Lacey. There were times I was confused but the story itself took you on a journey. I was trapped just as Lacey was in that town below the waters. I could not put it down. I was very happy that I was on a road trip while I was listening. I did not want it to end. I was eager for each new discovery.

Learning about Lacey/Maggie in both her times was fascinating. Having all things still going on around Lacey/Maggie and finding out what really happened to the town below the lake. The time travel and the two different worlds with characters was fascinating. Each time had its own set of characters that gave to the story as it progressed.

Things that hindered my ability to give it a much higher rating was the wobble of POV. I found that I do not like the switch of POV between 1st and 3rd. It kind of throws me off kilter just a bit and it takes me time to catch back up to where I was. I did find that the variation in the POV was pivotal to the past and present, Maggie/Lacey character. There was a point to it but it just did not go over so well for me.

Beneath the Lake was a simmering sweet romance with mystery, suspense, and much of time (past and present). The protection of the secret of the Lake will become a life-long commitment. There are unique elements to this read that makes it different from other time-travel mystery romances. This was not a predictable read other than Maggie/Lacey and Bobby. That was not always guaranteed.

Narration by Audrea was everything that I was hoping for and a bit more. I enjoyed the diction, clarity, pacing. Aundrea made the transitions feel like it was second nature. The audio was smooth flowing no lengthy pauses, gaps and no hiccups. 

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Patrice Wilton. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion. 

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 - 34 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?
