The Christmas Bridge by Elyse Douglas



From Goodreads: A First Love. A Second Chance. 
A young widow travels to New York on business a few days before Christmas. She has reluctantly made a date with a lover she hasn’t seen in 20 years, and she is nervous and apprehensive. Twenty years before, she made a difficult decision that has both troubled and haunted her ever since. She knows she’s about to come face-to-face with her past and she’s hoping for some redemption and resolution. She also wonders if she can somehow pick up where she left off 20 years ago and start again.

An exciting chance encounter changes everything. Now, not only will she face the past with hope to rekindle an old romance, but there is the possibility that this chance meeting will bring her love and happiness she never thought possible.

Once again, she will have to choose. She will have to make the right decision. She will have to believe that Christmas miracles can still happen. 



My Review
Copy from TLC Tours for an honest review
Three Stars
"The Christmas Bridge" by Elyse Douglas was a very sweet read. This was my first time reading Elyse Douglas and  I found it to be a perfect introduction to the winter / holiday season.  The heroine is in her late 30's, I calculated about 38.  She is a widow and starting her life a new since the shocking death of her husband.  Olivia was a sweet character.  My heart went out for her.  She was struggling with finding herself and  dealt with the guilt of moving on with her life.  Brett was an equally interesting hero.  It was sweet and heartwarming to watch .  I'm a big romance fan so this was easy for me to like.  I especially enjoyed a few  of the surprises that the author  included.
