The Bridge by Karen Kingsbury ~ Review

The Bridge: A Novel
My Review: A heart warming Christmas romance.

Ryan and Molly met a few years ago in college and met secretly in a used bookstore so full of warm and love, owned by a kindly older man and his wife. Now seven years later a tragedy has brought them all back together to help Mr. Barton, the owner of the bookstore, get his shop up and running again.
Can Ryan and Molly bridge the gap that has grown up between them?

This is only the second book that I have read by Karen Kingsbury, and I found The Bridge to be a short and sweet read, written in an easy to read style that engaged me from the very first line.

I felt like this story could have been longer and for the most part there was alot of explanation of backstory that wouldn't have been so noticable if the book hadn't been so short. But that didn't really phase me, because I liked that it was a short read and quick read.

So I guess what I'm saying is that I wished that I could have gotten to know the characters better than I did, because I felt like there was alot there, but that I was being told rather than shown.

I really loved how this book had little snippets of my favorite things, like used bookstores and Country Music. I really loved Ryan and Molly's romance, because they started off as friends, which in my personal opinion always makes a relationship real or fictional, more genuine.

Overall, a sweet Christmas read, that would definitely make a great gift for a loved one, or for yourself! A nice little novella :)

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
