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.
*I received this book free from Book Publicity Services in exchange for an honest review*
The two main characters in this book are Megan and Jackie and I love the fact that they didn’t know each other. You put two complete strangers in a car, in a snow storm together and see how the act toward each other. Their arguments were so realistic it’s funny.
Danny and Jeff are two of the sweetest guys ever. If it was possible I’d say they fell in love with the girls at first sight. Even with the crazy things the girls did and the lies they came up with the boys knew something wasn’t quite right with them, but that didn’t matter because their hearts overrode their heads.
This is the perfect holiday book. It brings the modern world crashing back into 1943 and with it an entire new outlook on life and love for Megan and Jackie.
I loved the rollercoaster ending until I finished the last three paragraphs. My fingers were crossed for a happy ending, but I never expected what actually happened. But then again, what the heck actually did happen!? I haven’t a clue.
My Favorite Moment: The confrontation! No it’s not why Megan and Jackie wrote the notes or the reason given in them, no it’s the way they ended them that means the most to Danny and Jeff. I absolutely LOVE the way the boys bring this up to the girls.
My Favorite Character: Jeff – the son of a preacher, a flyer of planes, a driver of distraction vehicles, and the man whose prayers were answered.
Overall, I give this 4 stars!
