When Beth Abbot receives a surprise inheritance, she travels to the family’s 19th century B&B in Old Louisville and encounters a resident ghost…
Reading Timeless, I was reminded of the old Barbara Michael’s novels. Gothic mansion. Young, plucky heroine. A ghost story to unravel before disaster strikes. And of course, a dour, handsome caretaker thrown into the mix.
I miss curling up with those old stories, so it was a treat to immerse myself in this one. But this is the 21st century, so the sexual heat quotient here is a good bit warmer.
The story hooked me from page one. The characters were entertaining, the scene setting delicious. It’s a well-plotted page-turner, with a satisfying conclusion I won’t spoil.
Timeless is a terrific choice for someone looking for a softer romance and who enjoys a Gothic novel in the Barbara Michaels vein.
Here’s the blurb:
Splintered Category Romance #104
When Beth Abbott receives a surprise inheritance from her birth mother, she travels to the family’s nineteenth century mansion in Old Louisville, now a bed and breakfast. There she meets the resident ghost, a little girl whose crying not only scares, but also intrigues guests. Beth sets out to discover the identity of the ghost and why she appears happy to Beth, not sad.
Jeff Halstead, a man with several secrets, runs the bed and breakfast. But he’s more than that to Beth, and she feels their connection immediately. A psychic medium who doubts his skills, Jeff slowly uncovers the truth of their past lives. Will he be in time to reveal the identity of Beth’s enemy? Will the love they shared in the past follow them into the future?
