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 new job as the town librarian. She appreciates the welcome she and Owen receive and enjoys getting the library ready for 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 life, he doesn't plan to stay for long. But Daisy Farrell 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.

3 STARS 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.

I enjoy reading all of Carla Neggers books. She is a versatile author. But the Christmas theme and nostalgic town of Knights Bridge was a double lure! Carla Neggers has given us an early Christmas gift. A Knights Bridge Christmas has so many emotions --- laughter, nostalgia, sadness, regrets, hope and happiness. The story includes many favorite characters and introduces 2 new ones. Widow Clare Morgan is the new librarian, moving to the picturesque town from Boston. Emergency Room Dr. Logan Farrell is in town to settle Grandma Daisy into Rivendell Assisted Living. Daisy wants her old house decorated for Christmas one last time. Ms. Neggers weaves old characters with the new effortlessly. In each of the Knights Bridge books, older ones share memories of the past and World War II. We laugh at the antics of the Sloan siblings. And then there are Claire and Logan ---- how can they bridge the gap between 2 different worlds? But it’s Christmas --- a magical season!

Massachusetts town of Knights Bridge is a small town where everyone knows each other, cares for each other, and in some nice ways, the time seems to have stopped in town. The Christmas traditions are deep, and everyone is willing to help and put in the time and effort to make the whole town look festive in time. As Logan and Clare starts to decorate the grandmother Daisy's house, a slow simmering attraction, and interest, start to burn. Even though in my mind they seem very similar, in Clare's mind they are totally opposite, and no good match at all. Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol is tight with the story. The ghosts keep visiting Logan, and the small town folks seem to have a preconceived notion about what kind of person, a city ER doctor is suppose to be, and not very positive one. I didn't connect that with Logan's personality, or how he was with people, but I guess that was a possibility in the future. The characters didn't have very much depth to them, the dialog wasn't constantly smooth, and the story was proceeding jerky at times. There are lots of food in the story, and the recipes for them are dotted amongst the chapters. I thought that was kind of cute, even though normally when that happens the recipes are at the end of the story, not a part of it. Overall, a good Christmas story, celebrating the circle of life, mixed with history of Daisy and Tom, Logan's grandparents, sweet Christmas traditions, and picture perfect Christmas scenes. ~ Three Spoons

A Knight's Bridge Christmas had some good points. It also had some not so good ones. I did not look at this as a love story. It was more a look at the phases of life and the wisdom gained from living it. Good 1. The concept of the story was thought provoking and heartwarming. 2. Life passes quickly, don't let it pass you by.- Smart to take two characters one starting over and one needing to slow down and bringing them together in a small town. Add in the changes they contend with and Logan's grandmothers transitions and wisdom. Interesting contrast. Bad 1. Slow moving.- Many times throughout the story it stalled and struggled to get back on track. 2. Too much in depth info.- Over explaining characters and situations made the story too long and stagnate. Disclosure- I received an ARC of A Knight's Bridge Christmas by Carla Neggers in exchange for an honest review.
