E-book Giveaway and Review - The Christmas Town by Elyse Douglas

The Christmas Town by Elyse Douglas is a new time travel, mystery, romance novel 
Release Date: 10/11/2013

My thoughts:
I really enjoy "time travel" books, and this one had me hooked from the first few pages!  When Jackie and Megan try to get back home, they rent a car and get lost.. They end up in a small town called "Holly Grove, Vermont".  As they drive thru the town, they are amazed at the older cars, and the billboards displaying things that happened in the past.
As Jackie and Megan get to know two soldiers, they are still confused on what they should do..Should they stay in this small town or try to get back to their families and the lives that they knew?  I enjoyed the small town feel of this book, it was hard to put down!

This is a wonderful Christmas story, full of romance and mystery!

About the Book:
While traveling home for Christmas, Jackie and Megan, two young women in their 20s, encounter a huge snowstorm. After crossing a covered bridge, they suddenly find themselves stuck in the past in a small picturesque Vermont town in 1943. While struggling to return to their time, they fall in love with two handsome soldiers. As Christmas approaches, Megan and Jackie are torn between their new lovers and their desire to return to their time. At the last moment, they must make the difficult decision and, because it is Christmas, a miracle happens.  
The Christmas Town is a thrilling adventurous novel interspersed with humor and romance. It's a great read any time of the year, but it's an especially cozy read during the winter months around Christmas.

    1. I really enjoyed this one! Such a interesting story of days "in the past"!

  5. Before I started blogging, I didn't read that many Christmas books, and I usually waited until after Thanksgiving (unless they were part of a series and I needed to read them in order.) This year, I read one in October and four in early November, because I had advance e-copies. I enjoy them anytime, but prefer to read them between Thanksgiving and New Year's.

  6. Thank you for the giveaway opportunity. I read them starting about the first week of Christmas. xo

  7. Our winner is Merry! Congratulations!
    Thanks to everyone for entering!
