"Burning Bridges is a story that I feel many people would enjoy. I laughed and cried throughout this entertaining novel. The message in this novel is universal and could be any parent trying to ensure that their children receive the best in life. It was very easy to relate to the characters in this wonderfully written story. I was very taken with the characters; I felt the sorrow and anger of each one. This story flowed relatively well and it could be the life of anyone walking past you on the street. The dialogue was realistic and the storyline was well developed, consistent, and resolved at the end." -- Breia Brickey, Paranormal Romance
5 Heart: "I absolutely adored this story by Ms. Krist. She grabbed me from the very first page and had me riding a roller coaster of emotions throughout the entire story. This story was packed with real emotion and circumstances that made you walk away wondering if the tables were turned and this happened to you, how would you respond to finding out your parents lied to you after all these years had passed? There was a powerful -WOW- factor involved with this story. I loved the unique and extremely creative storyline Ms. Krist came up with. I feel that any reader who picks this story up will enjoy it just as much as I did. I can-t wait to read more stories from this author." --Diana Coyle, Night Owl Romance--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

When Sara Richards receives letters that she should have gotten thirty-five years ago, she eventually discovers these three pieces of lost mail were not the only correspondence she never saw. A fling with a Navy sailor before he was sent to Vietnam left her despondent when Paul Steinert leaves and no word is ever heard from him again, especially when she ended up pregnant. But upon learning that Paul not only sent these letters but more that were purposely kept from her could drastically change the life of Sara and her grown daughter, depending on her next decision.
With surprising twists and believable interplay between characters, BURNING BRIDGES is an unforgettable love story filled with passionate desires and potent emotions. I was totally stunned at times, because some facts were definitely not anticipated. As Sara tries to make sense of what happened in the past and how it led to her current existence, she keeps uncovering truths which add extra turmoil to her life. All that took place when she was just a teenager now seems almost overwhelming to her as an adult. Sara knows that whatever choices she makes in the present will have a lasting effect on a large number of lives, and she must move forward carefully or the price could be too high. I will long remember this outstanding story, where honest feelings are expressed with much sincerity and the characters are particularly true-to-life.
We are not the same people we were thirty years ago, and this is one of the bridges Sara and Paul must cross – if they can.
Generally the story was good, and I enjoyed each of the main characters and understood their motivations for behaving the way they did. The author took time to develop each character, even the side characters. There were very realistic moments that you usually won’t find in a typical romance, and I appreciated the inclusion of these. All of the relationships were heavily fraught with emotional angst: Paula on the cusp of making a big leap in her love life, Sara and Matthew in an older/younger friendship/relationship that isn’t clearly defined, Sara and her mother trying to heal after decades of lies crumble on them both. The tension was well developed, and there were a few scenes in particular that had me hanging off the edge of my seat — well done!
However, there were a few choppy parts in terms of pacing — one moment we’re experiencing every single nuance of emotion with the characters, and the next I’m wishing I knew more about what had happened in the past few weeks. Also, the narrative was written in third person and though there were so many characters here that first-person wouldn’t have been feasible, still I wished it particularly during the sexy or highly dramatic moments, because it’s hard to convey all this emotion in the third person — it resulted in characters actually speaking aloud their feelings, instead of just feeling them and keeping them privy to the reader.
I enjoyed this second-chance, secret-baby, military romance a lot, and appreciated that despite ticking the boxes in terms of tropes, there was a lot of originality here that breathed through the novel and kept me interested. It was an easy read, and well fleshed out to be much, much more than just a romance. There are heavy elements of women’s fiction here, with all the female relationships — Sara and her mother, Paula and Sara, and even the developing relationship between Sara and her business partner. There was also a focus on the male relationships, which I liked as well. I would recommend this book to anyone who appreciates a good story with an emotional overload.
