A Knights Bridge Christmas by Carla Neggers (Swift River Valley #5)


New York Times bestselling author Carla Neggers celebrates the joy and romance of Christmas in New England

Clare Morgan is ready for a fresh start when she moves to the small Massachusetts town of Knights Bridge with her young son, Owen. Widowed for six years, Clare settles into her job as the town's new librarian. She appreciates the warm welcome she and Owen receive and truly enjoys getting the library ready for its role in the annual holiday open house.

Clare expects to take it slow with her new life. Then she meets Logan Farrell, a Boston ER doctor in town to help his elderly grandmother settle into assisted living. Slow isn't a word Logan seems to understand. Accustomed to his fast-paced city life, he doesn't plan to stay in Knights Bridge for long. But Daisy Farrell has other ideas and enlists her grandson to decorate her house on the village green one last time. Logan looks to Clare for help. She can go through Daisy's book collection and help him decorate while she's at it.

As Clare and Logan get his grandmother's house ready for the holidays, what neither of them expects to find is an attraction to each other. Better than most, they know all the crazy things that can happen in life, but everything about Knights Bridge and this magical season invites them to open themselves to new possibilities…and new love.

My review: A Knights Bridge Christmas by Carla Neggers (Swift River Valley #5)


This is a sweet story that ties in with a Christmas Carol.  It is not as deep as her other books. The ending seems rushed.  I enjoyed the new characters.  It was also nice to see what some older characters are up to now.

Clare Morgan is new to Knights Bridge.  She is a widow with a six year old Owen. She is the new librarian in town.  She is excited for a new start.

Logan Farrell is a ER doctor in Boston.  He has come to Knights Bridge to move his  grandmother Daisy Farrell  in a assisted living center.  He does not make a good first impression when he meets Clare.

Daisy asks Logan and Clare to decorate her house one last Christmas while she still owns the home and to make sure to light a candle in the window on Christmas Eve.

There are a lot of quotes of Charles Dicksens, A Christmas Carol.  Plus there are recipes in the story too.

I like the Swift River Valley series and look forward to reading more of them.

I was given this ebook to read for giving in return a honest review.
