WHAT LIES BETWEEN BOOK DESCRIPTION
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.
BEHIND THE SCENES
What Lies Between is about a lot of things, as life often is. But, especially,

“. . . I faced my father’s requirement that I scatter his ashes near the Black Cuillin. A heavy sigh escaped as I glanced down at the cover of the travel book. The Cuillins, crowned by a spiny ridge of razor-sharp peaks framed in mist, looked like they had sprung from an ancient god’s nightmare . . . Moving to Scotland and attempting to claim my inheritance would either be the best decision I’d ever made—or the worst.”
Ellie Jameson in What Lies Between
After trading in my corporate marketing gig and the city of Portland, Oregon
nearly five years ago for a one-way plane ticket, I have circled back to where I started.
But much has changed. In me. My life. My family. Even Portland isn’t the same.
Still weird, but a different version.
In these past few years, I explored other parts of the world–places I’d read about and imagined–and completed my first novel. Having had the goal of finishing it and publishing within five years, I am sliding in just under the wire.
