I’ve been reading time travel books ever since the now famous Outlander came out in 1991. I remember browsing in a Barnes and Noble bookstore in Oklahoma City, looking for a good romance novel. A woman who was also browsing recommended Outlander to me. I bought it and have been a fan of Diana Gabaldon ever since.
As an author I write mostly mysteries and suspense, but I really wanted to write a time travel story. I did it. My time travel/romance/mystery Inherit the Past is on sale on Amazon US for 99 cents. I hope you’ll check it out and get your Kindle copy today!
My book is about an American man who is down on his luck and feeling rejected by his family. What he doesn’t realize is that things could be a whole lot worse. When laid-off California architect, Max Hollander, inherits his grandparents’ house in Bavaria, it seems like the perfect opportunity to start over. If all goes well, he’ll sell it and make enough money to tide him over. More importantly, he hopes taking his antagonistic son Ryan on the trip will help rebuild their trust in each other and maybe even give them a chance to investigate a longstanding mystery that has haunted their family.
Twenty years ago while Max’s mother was staying at her parents’ house in Riesen, Germany, she and her father disappeared, never to be heard from again. Now, as they search unsuccessfully for that same house, Max and Ryan become lost until they serendipitously meet three Germans who help them find it. But their luck is short-lived: before day’s end they will get swept back in time . . . with no way to return to the present.
Realizing the same thing may have happened to his missing relatives, Max and companions set out to find them. Their quest soon embroils the hapless group in a murder investigation that widens the rift between father and son and places both lives in danger.
Inherit the Past is a story of family, love/relationships, guilt, and redemption.
