Goodreads page

Celtic fiddler Trina Kellander is excited to play at a local festival in Willow Springs, Vermont.  While settling into her room at the Deerbourne Inn, she admires an old painting of a handsome kilted Scot.  Then a man who looks exactly like the artwork turns up at a jam session to play with her.

Trina is smitten with the charming, old-fashioned Malcolm Blaine, and he with her.  She has never fallen so hard before.  After her concert, he wants her to leave with him.  But Malcolm is oddly mysterious about aspects of his life.  And how is he connected with the picture in Trina’s room?

Praise for Time Signature

“A delightful time-travel romance with a twist and a couple who bonds over filk music.  Expect nothing less than magic from Rick Ellrod!”  —LaVerne St. George

“A fun, musical gathering with a flirty fiddler and a mystery man… I loved collecting clues with her, and still the end surprised me!”  —Laurel Wanrow

Time Signature was a fun read. Trina and Mal had some nice chemistry.  I loved the mystery of whether Mal was really from another time.  And why did he look like that man in the picture?”  Deborah Wallace

“Time Signature feels like ’70s sci-fi—but more grounded and with much more believable characters.  The romantic build up, flirty banter, and mystery pulled me in.  The ending made me smile.”  —M. Dupré

“An extremely well-crafted and well-written story, thought-provoking and with a gentle leavening of humour.  Science fiction romantic comedy at its best.”  —Xenon
