Bridge of Gold

Bridge of Gold (Doors to the Past)Title: Bridge of Gold

Series: Doors of the past

Author: Kimberley Woodhouse

Publisher: Barbour Books

Genre: Historical Fiction

My Review:

This was a very fascinating and original story. I am learning to appreciate dual-time period novels and what I can learn about the history that each novel portrays. In Bridge of Gold, the story is told around the Golden Gate Bridge. 

As with any time-slip novel, there are two stories in the book. Woodhouse does an excellent job of intertwining the stories, developing the characters, and bringing it all to a solid conclusion at the end. Bridge of Gold has it all: mystery, suspense, romance, treasure seekers, gold, sunken ships and so much more. I have never read a story like this one and it was fascinating and a quick read. 

I loved the originality and depth of research that went into the story. I appreciated that the characters were flawed and learned from their mistakes. I also appreciated how they handled the conflicts that came their way. I was fascinated by both stories and curious to see what would happen with them. I also appreciated how smoothly the storyline flowed.

Bridge of Gold is part of the Doors to the Past series. Each book is intended to be read as stand-alone novels. Each book in the Doors to the Past series will feature a dual-time period romantic suspense story set against a historic American landmark. 

Thank you to Net Galley and the publisher for the opportunity to read this book. I was not required to give a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
