Christmas Eve Promise: Time Travel Novel (Christmas Eve Series, Book 4) by Elyse Douglas (Giveaway!)
ABOUT THE BOOK -Eve and baby Colleen are traveling to Ohio for the Christmas holidays to spend time with Eve’s parents. After a few days in Ohio, they all plan to fly to Florida in Eve’s father’s private airplane. Patrick will meet them there after he completes exams for his forensic psychology degree.
Nothing goes as planned. The day Patrick is to leave for Florida, he receives a shocking telephone call from one of Eve’s cousins. Sobbing, she tells him a terrible tragedy has occurred. It stuns him and shakes him to his heart’s core.
His life shattered, Patrick knows he has but one chance: he must use the time travel lantern to return to the past in order to prevent the current tragedy.
But once again, the time travel lantern has a mind of its own, and Patrick is hurled back to a time where he must confront a strange, unfamiliar world and learn why the lantern transported him there.
When Patrick comes face-to-face with a mysterious, beautiful woman who looks and acts like Eve, and whose name is Eve, Patrick is haunted.
He recalls the promise he and Eve had made to each other on Christmas Eve the previous year—no matter what happens; no matter if they’re separated; no matter what time or place they find themselves in; no matter what obstacles they must face, they will always find each other, help each other, and love each other for all time.
The Christmas Eve Promise is a journey about the enduring promise of hope and the infinite, unbreakable bonds of love.

MY THOUGHTS -
Oh my goodness this was a wonderful and beautiful story! Mainly taking place in Rochester NY (about 90 mi. from where I grew up) in 1925 during the prohibition. This was romantic, sad, suspenseful, and adventurous. This story had me on the edge of my seat one minute and swooning the next. Excellent character development with a wonderful cast that I instantly wanted to become friends with. I felt like I was transported back in time with Patrick to find his beloved Eve.
I highly recommend this beautifully written story. All you time travel fans will absolutely love this one!
I have read three other books by this writing duo. I didn't even realize it, but I gave all four books 5 stars!
I voluntarily posted this review after receiving a copy of this book from Virtual Author Book Tours - Thank You!!
