Beth Trissel, Author
My online author friend Beth Trissel and her family live on a lovely farm in Virginia’s Alleghany Valley. She is privileged to have toured many of the historic homes of the area. In fact, she grew up in one of them. Her familiarity adds richness to her descriptions of Foxleigh, home of the fictional Wentworth family of Virginia. To create Foxleigh, Beth combined several of the homes near where she lives.

SOMEWHERE MY LOVE is the first of Beth’s Somewhere in Time series. She has just re-released it with a beautiful new cover designed by her talented daughter, Elise. This book is a romance that includes mystery, reincarnation, history, soul mates, time travel, destiny. Each of the books in the Somewhere In Time series is stand alone, but I'm sure you'll want to read each of them.

Do you enjoy reading a good romance, a good mystery? Do you believe in soul mates for whom each of us is destined? Do you believe in reincarnation? In living again and again until we get it right? Then  the Somewhere In Time series is for you! And SOMEWHERE MY LOVE is a great start to the series.

In SOMEWHERE MY LOVE, Julia Morrow is a young English woman who comes to work as a tour guide at Foxleigh, a centuries old house near the James River. Sad that owners of wonderful historic homes are forced to have guided torus, isn't it? But it's lucky for those of us who want to visit them. And it's lucky for Julia because it brought her to Virginia to complete her destiny.

Julia is amazed when she realizes that William Wentworth, who is Foxleigh’s current owner, bears an uncanny resemblance to an old portrait. The large painting is of the very handsome Cole Wentworth, who is William's ancestor. Julia can’t explain why she’s drawn to Cole’s portrait or the eerie feeling that she knows both Cole and William. How could she have when she’s only just come to Virginia?

I don’t want to give away too much, because you will want to read this book for yourself. This beautiful story is a combination of historical romance and mystery combined with contemporary romance. Included are mystical paranormal elements. The exquisite descriptions plunge readers into the story with page-turning twists and surprises. I will share Beth's blurb about SOMEWHERE MY LOVE:

Fated lovers have a rare chance to reclaim the love cruelly denied them in the past, but can they grasp this brief window in time before it's too late?

Two hundred years ago Captain Cole Wentworth, the master of an elegant Virginian home, was murdered in his chamber where his portrait still hangs. Presently the estate is a family owned museum run by Will Wentworth, a man so uncannily identical to his ancestor that spirit-sensitive tour guide Julia Morrow has trouble recognizing Cole and Will as separate. As Julia begins to remember the events of Cole's death, she must convince Will that history is repeating, and this time he has the starring role in the tragedy. The blade is about to fall.

Beth's books have won numerous awards. She bases some of them on her own Scot-Irish ancestry, sometimes combined with an incident or two with a Shawnee ancestor. But SOMEWHERE MY LOVE is based strictly on Beth's amazing imagination combined with personal knowledge of living in a historic home. SOMEWHERE THE BELLS RING and SOMEWHERE MY LASS are the second and third in the series. I must admit a partiality to SOMEWHERE MY LASS, but I've enjoyed all three books.

SOMEWHERE MY LOVE is a wonderful introduction to the series for anyone who loves a great time travel paranormal romance. As Mary Ricksen’s quote on Beth’s website,says, “Know that love is truly timeless.” I believe that, and if you don’t, you will be the time you finish SOMEWHERE MY LOVE.

And you're in luck. Right now, SOMEWHERE MY LOVE is available at the bargain price of only 99 cents from Amazon Kindle! What a bargain, right? Here’s the link:

Don't overlook Beth Trissel's other books, listed on her website.

Thanks for stopping by!
