MY REVIEW: (LAWonder10)
It is Christmastime in New York in 2018. Patrick Gantly is still attempting to adjust to this new time of history vs 1885, the year he left his life to begin a new one. Searching the internet, he reads something of past history which changes everything. He must return to 1885 then, hopefully, return to the present time period to right an astounding wrong, no matter the affect it may have on history!
This is the second of a series, which can be read as s ;stand alone" but, as with all stories, it would probably be more intriguing if the reader has read the first one.
Having been saved from death by "time traveler" Evelyn Sharland, Patrick had to some how convince her of his need to return, for one very important errand.
In The Christmas Eve, new characters are introduced as Evelyn returns with Patrick, what was meant to be 1885 but instead they were separated and Evelyn lands in yet another time period. Where Patrick is, she has no idea! It is very likely she has lost him for good.
She determines to fulfill the errand he attempted or die trying, which is very likely.
Can she be so fortunate to be able to return home to 2018 a second time?
In her adventures, Eve is homeless, taken in by a wealthy young woman who is diligent in trying to make a difference in the world. She also has a brother who is not the gentleman he appears to be.
She meets others who both deter and assist her in her journey. One character later in the book, is a complete surprise!
The characters and scenes are well-developed and easily visualized. The Book Cover is colorful and an eye-catching "fit". However, the Title is clever, but misleading.
I offer a Four Stars rating for this book
**READER BEWARE: there is some profanity and an occasional sexual situation or innuendo.
*This book was gifted n=me with no pressure for a positive review. This is my honest review.

I really enjoyed the intertwining of a time travel tale with a holiday romance twist, the historical references were realistic, while the time travel between the present and past kept me intrigued right to the end. Captivating.”-Kathleen, Jersey Girl Book Reviews
“If you are a fan of authors such as Nicholas Sparks and Marybeth Whalen, or H.G. Wells or Jack Finney, you need to add this book to your shelves.
This is a romantic suspense novel with many dangerous and tense moments. As always, when one travels in time, the concern of consequences and potential changes to history and the future weigh heavily on both the traveler’s and readers’ minds. Those worries added to the atmosphere but were also handled skillfully. I smiled at a certain twist of color. It is a perfect bookclub read.”-Laura’s Interests
“The Christmas Eve Letter is a beautiful, poignant story. It is well written and will have you turning the pages eagerly.
All of the characters are well thought out, and believably written, together with the well-constructed scenery, that has you feeling as if you yourself have just stepped into the past.
The story is unique and moving. It will hold you long after you turn the last page. A perfect Christmas tale of love and hope.”-Whispering Stories
A great plot and a very fast-paced and well told story. The women characters were strongly portrayed. I got taken on the ride of my life, traveling between different eras with Eve and waiting with bated breath to see how the story would turn out.-Corinne Rodrigues, Everyday Gyaan
