Review

As I read Somewhere My Love, I recalled the feelings I experienced the first time I read Daphne DuMaurier's Rebecca. Using deliciously eerie elements...Beth Trissel captured the haunting dangers... --Publisher's Weekly Beyond Her Book by joysann

I liked the premise of this story and it was very well written with very detailed characters. --Bitten by Books Reviewed by Becky

A very sweet romance in the classic Romeo & Juliet Style. In this tale, our present day hero and heroine begin to question whether or not true love can cross the barriers of time... --Happily Ever After by Reviewer Barbara

From the Author

Virginia has more ghost stories than any other state in the Union, not necessarily because we have a more fertile imagination, but sadly because the Old Dominion has seen more bloody battles over the centuries than any other. And yet, this multitude of hauntings doesn't only feature soldiers caught in an endless fray who haven't gotten word the war's over. Many tales feature the myriad of people, great and small, who dwelt in our richly historic state. The old Virginia homes and plantations have accumulated a wealth of such stories. While touring some of these English styled manor homes with my dear mother I conceived the idea for Somewhere My Love.  Added to this meld of vintage Virginia is my own heritage, a vast source of inspiration from my childhood. On my father's side, I descend from old Southern gentry, now impoverished after the Civil War, Great Depression, and various other misfortunes, but the gracious Georgian home his ancestor built (circa 1816) still stands outside the historic town of Staunton, VA. 
The magnificent ancestral portraits in my family and on display in other Virginia homes held me transfixed, wondering. And it was just such a portrait of a striking dark-haired gentleman who embedded himself in my thoughts. Who was he? Why did he die so young? That other painting of the fair young lady...did she love him? Often, the guides at these old homes are brimming with tales. But other times we are left to wonder...and ask ourselves are these folk who've gone before us truly gone, or do some still have unfinished business in this realm? And what of the young lovers whose time was tragically cut short, do they somehow find a way? Love conquers all, and so I answer 'yes.'

More About the Author

Married to my high school sweetheart, I live on a farm in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia surrounded by my children, grandbabies, and assorted animals. An avid gardener, my love of herbs and heirloom plants figures into my work. The rich history of Virginia, the Native Americans and the people who journeyed here from far beyond her borders are at the heart of my inspiration. In addition to American settings, I also write historical and time travel romances set in the British Isles, and nonfiction about gardening, herbal lore, and country life.

Beth Trissel's debut is a riveting blend of romance and intrigue with light paranormal tones that grab hold of you on page one and won't let you go.

SOMEWHERE MY LOVE introduces us to Julia Morrow, an English girl on summer break, who has arranged to work as a tour guide at Foxleigh, a historical home situated along the James River in Virginia. During her introductory tour, Julia learns that Foxleigh has been home to the Wentworth family for eight generations and is now managed by William Wentworth. But Julia is stunned to see that William bears a striking resemblance to an old portrait of Cole Wentworth, a handsome man pictured in his late twenties. Drawn to the portrait of Cole, Julia is overwhelmed by feelings that she somehow knows Will, even Cole... but can't explain it.

There's definitely something about Julia, and Will wonders if the decision to have her work and live at the house for the summer was a mistake. Not only does she boggle his mind with her innocent charm, but her inexplicable admiration for Cole truly makes him wonder if she's cuckoo for cocoa puffs. After all, Cole's been dead two hundred years. But when Julia's dreams become vivid and Will starts recalling memories that place him in Cole's shoes--err, boots--so many years ago, comparing notes may help them discover the truth of what really happened on the fateful night of Cole's death. But could it be that the events that happened so long ago may foretell events still yet to come? And is it possible that a love from the past could get a second chance to live in the present?

SOMEWHERE MY LOVE weaves a beautiful historical romance with a contemporary story creating a mystery with a pleasant dash of the paranormal. Catch all that?

Somewhere my Love by Beth Trissel is an extremely well written, suspenseful work. Her knowledge of history and herbs, and her ability to weave an intriguing tale keeps the reader's interest until the end. Plunging her heroine into a past life adds another layer of intrigue which helps her keep abreast of the present plot as it is unrolling, even though it's fraught with peril for her and for her love.

Normally, I much prefer historical to contemporary romance, but 'Somewhere, My Love', the first in Ms. Trissel's paranormal 'Somewhere In Time' series, with its echoes of a genteel and elegant past, caught and held my attention from the very first paragraph.

I thought the book well-written and well-paced, and Ms. Trissel expertly built the story's suspense to a dramatic and climactic ending (and while late in the story I thought I knew the identity of the murderer, I could not be sure until the very end.) The tender, haunting scenes from Cole and Julia's past were pure magic. The descriptions of the Foxleigh house and grounds were visually stunning. I wished I could go there to live for a while.

As for the negative feedback about Julia as a helpless female, I must disagree. We live in a day when ridiculously superhero females are held up as the norm, and women are expected to be uber everything, but such expectations are both simplistic and unrealistic. While I enjoy a spirited, feisty heroine, I also find heroines from the opposite end of the spectrum just as captivating, as well as refreshing. Julia is ultra-feminine to Will/Cole's healthy masculinity and her gentle, quiet demeanor immediately sparks his protective instincts. That, IMO, is no bad thing in a romance.

I found 'Somewhere My Love' a delightful read, and look forward with anticipation to the next installment in the series.

Did you ever get a book that kept you reading late at night when you knew you should stop reading and turn the light out because it was only a few hours until the alarm clock would buzz? Well, get ready because this is one of those books.

This is my first book from this author, but I will certainly read more. Somewhere My Love has it all--a great plot, wonderful characters and that magical something that keeps a reader turning pages. Old mansions, young lovers who reunite from the past, this story will stay in your memory for a long time after you put the book down.

This was a great book to read. It kept me wanting to read more to see how it ended. One minute I was thinking it was going to end one way just to end another.
