A Knights Bridge Christmas - Carla Neggers

A Knights Bridge Christmas
Carla Neggers
MIRA, Sep 29 2015, $17.99
ISBN: 9780778317593

To start over, Widow Claire Morgan and her six year old son Owen move to Knights Bridge, Massachusetts where she begins her new job as the library director.  At the same time that the Morgan family relocates; sadly and filled with guilt Boston ER Dr. Logan Farrell believes he is doing what is best for his feisty grandmother Daisy by placing her in a senior’s assisted living facility.

Daisy accepts her grandson’s contention she needs eldercare, but makes one request of Logan in return.  She wants a last Christmas gala including a candle in the window in her now empty home.  Unable to say no, Logan acquiesces to his beloved grandma’s wish.  He persuades Claire to help him provide Daisy with a Christmas to remember.  Working together, neither of the sandwich generation adults anticipated falling in love.

The fifth Swift River Valley contemporary (see Echo Lake and Cider Brook) is a charming New England holiday romance.  The protagonists are a nice pairing of a workaholic and a traumatized person, but upstaged by his grandmother (especially the glimpses into her past) and her son.  Readers will relish visiting Knights Bridge for the holidays.
