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.

 Somewhere my love is an interesting mesh of a sort of time travel romance with a bit of a ghost story.  It also includes an great parallel to Hamlet, which is even better since they plan is an important part of the story line as well.  It was all put together very nicely with a bit of mystery thrown in as well.

The beginning of the book did run just a tad slow at times, there was a lot of groundwork to lay.  I was also a bit surprised at how easily people accepted Julia's craziness at times.  Most people wouldn't want much to do with someone who claimed to be destined to be with a man that died 200 or so years ago.  She was a very interesting character and the comparison to Ophelia that some made later in the book was quite fitting at times.

Will was, at first, your typical rich land owner.  He got more interesting as the book went on and he realized that Julia wasn't mad, but actually knew something.  They connected very quickly and there were a lot of references to feeling like he knew her already.  Will's mother was probably my favorite side character.  She was full of spunk and set in her ways - bound and determined that people would live their lives as she saw fit.  A great matriarchal figure.

The end gets exciting very quickly and the next thing you know, you just can't put the book down.  When all comes to light so many things begin to make sense and a lot of questions are answered quite nicely.

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
