Trust has never come easily to Ellie Jameson. A broken past taught her that self-reliance is the only option--no one sticks around for the long haul. When a fateful letter arrives with news of an unexpected inheritance, she sees a silver lining in the tragedy that seems to follow her. Anxious to leave American city life for the rugged Scottish Highlands, she sets off to claim her fate in a whirlwind of determination. Captivated by the land of stunning lochs, fiery whisky, and a particularly charming Highland local, it seems things may finally be turning around . . .But nothing could have prepared Ellie for what awaits at the Glenbroch estate, where she soon discovers very little is as it seems. Intrigue, danger, and secrets surround the life of the father she never knew, entangling her in a web of lies and betrayal. As the line between ally and enemy blurs, Ellie must decide what, and whom, to believe. Her independence and survival skills are put to the test as she learns once and for all whether her heart can be trusted.… (més)

I have to be honest. When I first started this novel I thought it was going to be a plain romance and wondered how on earth I would get through it. The story was definitely not I expected but more about that later on.
Nothing has ever been easy for Ellie Jameson and she has had to learn the hard way that the only one you can rely on is yourself. Then a letter arrives informing Ellie about an unexpected inheritance in faraway Scotland. She decides to leave America behind and see what awaits her on the Glenbroch Estate. Yes, there is a romance with a absolutely perfect Scot but there is also a lot of intrigue and mystery as Ellie tries to get Glenbroch up and running.
Now I will explain what I meant when I said the story was not what I expected. This would have been typical romance with intrigue in a foreign land except for one important fact. Charlena Miller's description of Scotland and it's people is so very lush and detailed that you feel as if you are there with Ellie. That isn't surprising since I understand that the author did in fact visit Scotland but it takes talent to be able to describe it in such detail. I always wanted to visit Scotland and now with "What Lies Between" by Charlena Miller I really want to go there. Highly recommended. I received a copy of this book from the author (thank you!) in exchange for an honest review. ( )

This is a wonderful story about a woman, Ellie, who has suffered much in her life, who receives a bequest, from her estranged birth father, of an estate I Scotland. There is some mystery involved in the story, as Ellie tries to continue renovations to the estate and figure out her future. In addition, there was romance which added to the plot and lightened things up for the reader. Finally, the author presented wonderful descriptions of Scottish Highlands, its people and their culture, which only made the book more enjoyable for me. The book is a steady read, and held my attention from the very beginning, as I wondered whether she will find love or whether what will happen with the estate. I found the characters interesting and developed, the plot likewise developed and fascinating and, as I said, the setting interesting and holding my attention. This the first book by this author I have read, but I am sure there will be more, as I suspect they will be equally as enjoyable and well written as this one. I received this from Library Thing to read and review. ( )

Wasn't sure what I was about to find out reading this book at first. If this is the first book Charlena Miller's written, I'm sure we'll see more great stories from her in the future. This is a brilliant story with great plot and story line, of a journey of (an orphan) young woman from Oklahoma to find her root in the highlands of Scotland, of belonging, home, love, trust, betrayal, perseverance, friendship and enemy. I'm glad I finished off the year 2015 with this book. ( )

***ARC given by the author in exchange for an honest review***
I really enjoyed this book because it was set in modern-day Scotland, and I had just read another novel, prior to this one ('At the Water's Edge' by Sara Gruen), which took place in Scotland during WWII. Both take place near Inverness, which is an area I, myself, would love to explore someday. Both had American women basically transplanted to these areas, relying on the kindness of strangers who don't much take to Americans. It was fun reading about the kinds of food that are available, the differences in the weather, the clothing, the different holidays that are celebrated, etc. (Our heroine, Ellie, brings a Thanksgiving celebration to her estate, and the locals (who, obviously, wouldn't celebrate an American holiday like that), and it's a huge hit! The descriptions of the surroundings are beautiful--I feel like I can see them in my mind's eye.

The meat of the story, though, is the best part--it's a romance and a mystery all-in-one. I've only recently begun reading mysteries, and I'm only a romance-fan if the romance is incidental to the story, rather than the focal point. This book was the PERFECT combination! I appreciated that Ellie is a strong, independent woman who is giving everything she's got to save her estate... yet she's learning to let her guard down a bit, trust new friends, and allow herself to fall in love.

I received my E pub from the Library Things member giveaway. I am not giving this a rating because it would not be fair to Miss Miller. I admit I was intrigued by the cover and expected a more scary/mystery story not a romance novel. Miss Miller did deliver what the publicity blurb said but I guess I missed the Genre listing somewhere. I do not like romance, girl meets boy, hates boy then falls in love. If you like Hallmark channel movies you will love this book.
