The Christmas Bridge Tour by Elyse Douglas
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.

I really enjoy reading Christmas stories and so any time I see one I try to read it. I was so happy to take part in the book tour. The Christmas Bridge was well written and was one I couldn’t put down. Olivia husband had died last year, and she was mourning her lose. When her boss said she needed to go to New York for work. She didn’t want to go but had to. The thought brought a lot of memories back including the thought of Andrew her first love. She contacted him and he responded that he would love to get together with her. The day she arrived in New York she went back to their bridge that they met at. While there she met Brett Baylor – a baseball star. I don’t want to spoil the story but this is a must read.
I received a Copy of this book from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for the review.
