Trail Through Time is the fifth book in the Liberty Valley Love series by Josie Malone. A time travel tale of two lovers from different eras, the story follows Kyle Morgan and Nina Armstrong. Nina was a survivor of a horrible attack and life wasn’t getting any better for her. After she lost a friend, Nina was riddled with guilt. A serial killer was hot on her heels, ready to strike at the right moment and claim her life. Luckily for her, an old-time cowboy was ready to be her savior and champion. Kyle Morgan claimed to be from a different time and place. Battle-scarred and a true southern gentleman, Kyle was ready to do whatever it took to protect Nina. Before they knew it, sparks flew, and they started to fall in love. In the meantime, could Kyle keep Nina safe?

Author Josie Malone did it again with Trail Through Time. Usually, time travel romances don’t do it for me. The stories are either not detailed enough or, they are too detailed for me to fully enjoy them. This novel, however, was a completely different story. I loved Kyle and the way he talked. His dialogues were fun and witty with the charm of the 1880s, and I loved how he interacted with Nina. Nina was a survivor, and she was no damsel in distress. While she enjoyed Kyle’s attention, she was strong enough even though she had survivor’s guilt. The connection these two had was instantaneous, but they took their time to get to know each other. The dialogues were fun, and the pace was perfect. Josie Malone added action when it was needed, romance when it was required, and mystery when the story needed it. I would highly recommend this whole series.

A Trail Through Time alternates between two different timelines, Liberty Valley 1888 and Eagleville 2018, and mainly revolves around the love story between Nina Armstrong and Kyle Morgan. Nina survives a brutal attack by Gary Smith through the intervention of her good friend Beth Chambers. After following Gary into the woods, Beth disappears. Months later it is accepted that Beth was killed by Gary, even though her body was never found. Gary is arrested by the police but is released on bail awaiting trial. With her attacker on the loose and her good friend presumed dead, Nina has to adjust to everyday living. She does this with the help of a handsome stranger, Kyle Morgan, who says he was sent from the year 1888 by Beth to protect her. Nina has a hard time believing this and when they also have to escape through time, Nina’s whole world is about to change.

A Trail Through Time: Liberty Valley Love Book 5 is the latest in the series by Josie Malone. What I appreciated most about A Trail Through Time is that I didn’t need to read the previous books in the series to enjoy the story. Josie Malone explained everything that went before to ensure that this book can stand on its own. The story keeps you on your toes. Just when you think the peak has been reached, Malone throws in another twist. Different subplots keep the story interesting and set the theme for later books in the series, which I am looking forward to reading. From witches to werewolves and even time travel, this book has it all.

In Trail Through Time by Josie Malone, we travel from the present day to 1888. We are introduced to Nina Armstrong, a young woman caring for her horses and trying to forget the awful attack she lived through in which she lost her very best friend Beth. When stranger Kyle Morgan appears, Nina is confused by him; he acts and looks as if he is an old-fashioned cowboy. He explains that he is here to watch over and protect her from getting attacked a second time. The two slowly form a close relationship and when Nina is once again in trouble, Kyle appears and saves the day by taking her up into the mountains. When she quickly recovers from her injuries and becomes aware of her surroundings, she knows she is in a strange place but believes it is a pretend village, not really back in 1888. Nina finds herself enjoying being in what they tell her is Liberty Valley and the surprises taking place around her. The question becomes is she really now living in the past? You will have to read Trail Through Time for yourself to get the answers.

Trail Through Time: Liberty Valley Love, although Book 5, in the series is a stand-alone trip through time. If you are a fan of time travel, romance, and paranormal novels, Trail Through Time by Josie Malone is a must-read. There was much I found believable, some I thought, wow if only that could really happen, and also some detailed sex scenes, offering me a wide range of reading experiences. While I have not read books one through four, I never felt that I was lost or confused as to what was happening. Trail Through Time is everything it is advertised to be and more.
