had a good plot and dialogue; the characters were very likable and I could have been friends with Eve, my favorite character. If you love a good Christmas Romance, this book is for you.
The Christmas Eve Letter is descriptive and beautifully written. The character development is great, the plot stunning and captivating. It's a book that many romance fiction lovers will love--but if you also love time-travel--this is right up your alley.

If you are a fan of authors such as Nicholas Sparks and Marybeth Whalen, or H.G. Wells or Jack Finney, you need to add this book to your shelves.
This is a romantic suspense novel with many dangerous and tense moments. As always, when one travels in time, the concern of consequences and potential changes to history and the future weigh heavily on both the traveler's and readers' minds. Those worries added to the atmosphere but were also handled skillfully. I smiled at a certain twist of color.
This is also a wonderful novel to share with high school age readers and bring up the concepts of life before technology and the changing roles of women in society, among other ideas.
It is a perfect bookclub read.
Before we get too deep in the book we have the idea of an unacceptable love match that gets thwarted by circumstances. Is that the reason Eve gets swirled away in time? You will have to read until the end and draw your own conclusions.
This is a wonderful story that is very well written, and with a great pace. The love story is romantic and sweet, and the characters are charming and lovable. It will grab your attention from the beginning and hold it through to the end, and leave you begging for more.
I have no hesitation in recommending it highly.

The Christmas Eve Letter is a beautiful, poignant story. It is well written and will have you turning the pages eagerly.
All of the characters are well thought out, and believably written, together with the well-constructed scenery, that has you feeling as if you yourself, have just stepped into the past.
The story is unique and moving. It will hold you long after you turn the last page. A perfect Christmas tale of love and hope.
The Christmas Eve Letter isn't just a feel good holiday read, it's a great time travel romance as well. Elyse Douglas has done a great job of melding the two.
In my mind, the ending was perfect.
