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.

Gripping Must Read
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.
Our Favorite line: "The wind at the tower felt more like an entity, a presence constantly murmuring its own secret song."
Nadine Find the time for this book!
Propelled back and forth in time, this paranormal romance story has all the ingredients of suspense and mystery to keep you listening/reading...the further I dove into this story the more I was drawn in.
Adriana B The Best Time Travel Romance!
I'm so glad I decided to give this book a try. The author is new to me but she has woven a great time travel romance with suspense, intrigue, and love. The narration was well done and brought the story to life. This was definitely a story that required my full attention! The story alternates between 2012 & 1949 with Lake Lanier as an important focus. The author did an amazing job describing everything and she draws you in and keeps you enthralled. The story is suspenseful and expertly woven to keep you engaged. I think the author did an amazing job. It sounded so believable the way the characters behaved. If time travel was possible, it could definitely happen like this! This is truly an imaginative story with great well developed characters. Lacey is a great main character! Bobby is so nice and understanding! This is by far the best time travel story I have read!
AudioBook Romance Love can defy time!
Time travel stories can go wrong so easily...but this one went so right! If time travel sounds daunting to you, pay attention to the time and dates. I'm a big fan of Doctor Who so the concept of multiple timelines doesn't phase me.
The story was well written and heartfelt. The steam factor is light. This story takes place around Lake Lanier, Georgia, which I have lived near at one point in time. I never knew that much detail. The LAKE in Beneath The Lake is of great importance and in a way its own character. Without it, there would be no story. The story has multiple time lines running concurrently, all focusing around Lacey Madison Montgomery. She finds her boyfriend in a compromising position at the beginning of the book which becomes the catalyst for her late night ride into the storm that changes her life forever.
This is my first read/listen by Casi McLean and I want more. She wove an excellent story of love and endurance that I could not stop listening to. Aundrea Mitchell does an excellent narration. The character voices both male and female are distinct and well done. This gets 5 time bending hearts out of 5 from me and recommended to anyone who loves a good romantic read with a stellar HEA.
