The Christmas Town by Elyse Douglas

Wednesday, January 1, 2014

The Christmas Town, by Elyse Douglas, is a new time travel, mystery, romance novel that was released on October 11, 2013.

Traveling home for Christmas, two young women in their 20s are forced to drive together during a snowstorm, and they get lost. They cross a covered bridge and, suddenly, they enter the past, finding themselves in a small picturesque Vermont town in 1943. They meet two handsome soldiers, who are about to be sent off to war, and they fall in love with them, while also struggling to find a way to return home to their own time. 

With the soldiers’ help, on Christmas Eve, the two women finally have one chance to return to their own time, but they are caught between their love for the soldiers, and their desire to return to the present. At the last moment, they must make the difficult decision and, because it is Christmas, a miracle happens.

Goodreads Summary

Looking for a sweet holiday romance?  Check out the Christmas Town!  What starts out as female friendship (sort of) turns into a sweet romance.  The reader will follow the adventures of two female friends who meet two soldiers.  These soldiers turn out to be the romances of their lifetimes.  What will happen when these two women have to go back to their own time?  Will they be forced to leave their loved ones?

I did enjoy meeting all of the characters of the novel.  I loved the characters and grew to feel like they were friends.  I was really hoping they would be able to stay together at the end of the novel and I was so happy with the little miracle that appeared right at the end.  This novel did surprise me for the better; this book is recommended to adult readers.
