Title: Tremors Through Time

Genre: Time Travel Scottish Romance
She's made mistakes and paid the price, but Deidre Chisolm is no quitter. She'll never again be a fool for a man, not even her gorgeous new neighbor with his haunted eyes and strange accent. She'll be friendly, but nothing more.
Lachlann has to go back to fourteenth-century Scotland. He can't forsake his family, his son. But when a beautiful, kind, funny lady buys the house next door, he's never been so drawn to anyone in his life. Would she believe his story? After years of struggling through nightmares and flashbacks, headaches and illiteracy, dare he ask her to help him return?
Lost in time, Lachlann must ask for Deidre’s help to get back to his own time before it’s too late. Lachlann is a man who’s traveled from 14th century Scotland to modern-day America, thanks to a tremor. How he got there, he has no idea. He’s wracked by terrible dreams and immense guilt. When Deidre buys the home next door, he’s captivated by her beauty. They share a love of gardening and he’s drawn to her. He tries to stay away but an unspoken bond pulls him back to her. He yearns for Scotland and his old life, but he needs help, Deidre’s help. Can he confide in her? Will she believe him? She has secrets of her own. As their love grows, so does the intrigue behind his traveling through time. An enemy hidden in the shadows will do anything to keep Lachlann and Deidre silent. Lachlann will have to choose between the past, present, and future before it’s too late.
Tremors Through Time is a medieval Scottish time travel romance I adored. From the very first page, I connected with the characters. The descriptive narration is so intricate, from the setting to the historical accuracy to the emotional tension, I couldn’t put it down. I found myself reading late into the night and dreaming about the story during the day. The romance is slow-burn with quite a bit of turmoil. The characters are flawed which makes for an unputdownable read. The only issue I had was with the ending. It appeared to be a tad rushed and abrupt. I’m not sure if this is a start of a series but it would’ve been nice for the author to clue in the reader either way. I secretly hope it is a series. Anastasia Abboud has done her research and her writing is immersive. Fans of Outlander, this is our next binge-read. Fans of medieval time travel romance, you’ll want to read Tremors Through Time. I look forward to reading more by Anastasia Abboud.

For me, playing is the best -- playing outdoors in nature or in my garden, experimenting in the kitchen, spending time with those I love. I also enjoy disappearing into a good book, attempting crafts, learning, writing, exploring, discovering. I especially like to mix it up and have yet to perfect any of it; and I've come to realize that perfection's not the point. It's all wonderfully fun. That's the point!
I prefer authentic and natural, be it food, lifestyle, people. I passionately enjoy both history and science, and certainly sociology to a degree, and I am most truly a romantic.
My husband and I have been married for over forty years. We reside near Houston, Texas, surrounded by loved ones. We have a blast with our little grandchildren.
I thank God for this wonderful life.
