The Christmas Town by Elyse Douglas


This is a very sweet time travel romance. Two modern women, Megan and Jackie find themselves thrown back to the 1940's and the chaos and struggles of a world at war. Not only do Megan and Jackie have to learn to adjust and take care of themselves in a world they no longer fit into but they eventually have to choose between two lives and two loves. This is a good romantic read in the truest sense. There's conflict, uncomfortable adjustments, and a need to trust in strangers.The pacing isn't as fast as a lot of books that I read, but the writing and editing are excellent. There are no descriptive sex, vampires, or shapeshifters just a good solid holiday romance. So if you are looking for a more old fashioned quality romance this is definitely worth picking up.

Happy Reading!

Traveling home for Christmas, two modern 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.
