Publisher's Summary

Aiden Anderson got off to a tough start in life.

He had a small family to begin with, and they were all gone by the time he turned 16. He did his best to shake off his grief and go on to a successful life as a musician. He was talented, but just missed the big time.

When Aiden dies in a car crash, he couldn't be more surprised to open his eyes in his grandmother's kitchen in 1961. He has a second chance at everything: family, friends, and fame. Even in Middle Falls, second chances don't always turn out right.

Includes bonus story Rock 'n' Roll Heaven and a special note from the author.

Absolutely magical!

The entire Middle Falls Time Travel series is phenomenal. This, the latest addition, is no exception. Shawn Inmon creates characters that the reader truly comes to care for and love (and on occasion despise - although redemption is often forthcoming.) When an author can give you goosebumps from emotion, not fright, make you laugh, bring tears to your eyes all within the span of a few pages, that is something special. Mr. Inmon delivers every single time, as do the different narrators.

After I had listened to three or four of these books I started to expect the story lines to get stale; but, after 14 books, it hasn’t happened yet. Now I truly believe they never will. I cannot wait for the next books to come out. In the meantime, I suppose I will have to start back at the beginning and listen to them all again.

Losing his touch?

Michael was the best character, fight me :). After book 11 the characters are very one-dimensional. Get rich, ok. Travel, ok. Get laid, ok. I think we need more.. Maybe the institute needs to play a bigger role?

Another home run!!!

Shawn Inmon hits it out of the park again with the latest addition to the Middle Falls series! I can only think of one other author whose series I could continue to read after the second or third book let alone thoroughly enjoy! Actually two, I forgot about JK Rowling, lol.

Middle Falls Time Travel

One of the best books I have ever read or listened to in my life.

I've read the whole series. This is my favorite

Inmon makes a comment in his author's note in one of the books about how much he admires Stephen King. IMHO what King does best is develop unforgettable, fully-formed characters. Guessing Inmon agrees because how else do you write 14 books with the same premise set in the same place?

While some in the series are just ok, I always keep reading because of his characters. This one was especially good in both character and plot and was a tad different than the rest. Inmon, unlike some authors, gets better the longer he writes.

And probably the best compliment these days: I've listened to most of his books for free through KU; he's now charging a credit for the audio books and I'm willing to pay!

Middle Falls Magic !

The latest instalment maintains the high standard of Middle Falls stories and has some great music industry nostalgia in the mix PLUS a bonus Rock ‘n Roll story.
What more could you ask for?

Always a good relaxing read

Another Inman good read if you like this series. They are predictable but it’s nice not to have so many surprises in your day sometimes!

Good enough main story but…

Didn’t warm up to this one as much as I have for others in the series. The worst part was the bonus story, Rock and Roll Heaven. I’ll chalk it up to just not being my cup of tea. Liked the ending though. Don’t let my opinion scare you off. If you’re more into details of 50’s rock it will probably work for you. I don’t need to ever hear Jim Morrison songs again and definitely not a Buddy Holly fan.

Another satisfying story

Another great narrator, and another fun entry. Aiden really does try vastly different paths, and it is cool to see a Middle Falls MC branch out a bit more. It was fun to see the music scene and house remodel scene, and the ultimate conclusion was decently satisfying. Also loved seeing Charles again, and it is interesting seeing him breaking the rules.

Amazing story, Amazing Series

The only thing that makes me sad about this book is that it means there are no more Middle Falls tales left for me to get lost in. Thank you Shawn Inmon for getting me lost in your literary world for so long. I cant wait to visit again. Hopefully soon.

lovey storyline and well read.

The story well thought out, especially having Aiden jump around in his life so that he understood quickly what was the most important thing for him to concentrate on. A very lovely story.

it's the first time I've listened to a middle falls story, always read them before. now I know how I want to re read them. I've always wanted to start reading the original books but never seem to be able to concentrate too well, now I'm going to be listening to how's someone else reading them

I couldn’t stop listening!

Another great book in the Middle Falls series, with fantastic narration. Shawn Inmon manages to keep every book enjoyable and surprising, and the journeys undertaken his protagonists vary, but never focused on fame and fortunes. In this book, Aiden's journey is about is about finding fulfilment, love and belongining - something most of us strive to achieve in our lifetimes.

Yet another wonderful story

Just as good as every other book in the series, and this one has a bonus short story tacked onto the end as well, which was very enjoyable. If you're a music lover this might be a particular favourite within the series.
