Twenty years before, she made a difficult decision that has both troubled and haunted her ever since. She knows she’s about to come face-to-face with her past and she’s hoping for some redemption and resolution. She also wonders if she can somehow pick up where she left off 20 years ago and start again. An exciting chance encounter changes everything. Now, not only will she face the past with hope to rekindle an old romance, but there is the possibility that this chance meeting will bring her love and happiness she never thought possible.

 Praise for Christmas Diary by Elyse Douglas:

"The Christmas Diary is a tender hearted story of one woman's journey of self-discovery and finding true love that will pull at your emotional heartstrings. The authors weave an inspirational tale written in the third person narrative, that draws the reader into Alice and Jack's lives, and the issues that they've faced: love and loss, questioning one's life choices, and the decision of which road/path is best to take in one's life. This is a wonderful story that has a meaningful message within the storyline that will touch your heart. The authors' descriptive writing style is phenomenal: the characters are realistic and down-to-earth people whose emotions, dialogue and interactions are palpable, you can feel the range of highs and lows that they endure. The reader is transported to the picturesque holiday setting of the Pennsylvania towns of Eden Grove and Meadow Green. This captivating story has a mixture of mystery, tender romance, and a supernatural twist that makes The Christmas Diary a compelling and entertaining story that will warm your heart."- Kathleen, Jersey Girl Book Review "If you are a fan of Richard Paul Evans novels then you definitely want to grab The Christmas Diary. This is a super quick read that you pick up on a Saturday afternoon and devour in one sitting. One glorious afternoon sitting. It is a story of love and changes with a paranormal twist. I adored this book. It was quick and simple and really perfect. I loved how everything was tied together through a ghost. A quick holiday read that makes me think of Lifetime and Hallmark channel movies.”- Andrea Guy, A Chick Who Reads " The Christmas Diary" is a nice smooth read filled with emotions and a touch of the paranormal world. Elyse pens her characters well developed, believable and lovable in this Christmas romance story. Highly recommended for all who love a nice enjoyable romance tale."- Susan Peck, My Cozie Corner

My Review

This was such an easy book to sit down and read, in fact, I found it difficult to put down. I felt so sad for Olivia grieving for the loss of her husband and the curiosity of her first real love Andrew in New York. Upon learning she had to go back to work in New York for the first time in 20 years, she emails her ex-boyfriend and suggests a meetup, only for the meeting to go in a completely different direction. She falls in love again but its with someone most unexpected and she makes a choice that she regrets a few days later and it all seems to be too late. You feel like you go all through the emotions that Olivia is feeling and you almost part of the story yourself. The book is well written and I would recommend it to you all to read, its a feel good Christmas story and I am going to read the other books from Elyse Douglas. A Five star for this book.
