Book Blitz & Review - Bridges by Maria Murnane

Title:  Bridges: A Daphne White Novel
Authors: Maria Murnane
Publisher: Kindle Press 

Release Date: April 4, 2017 
Genre: Contemporary Fiction

It’s a piece of news Daphne never expected to hear: Her globe-trotting friend Skylar, who vowed never to get married, is engaged! Time to celebrate in Manhattan—Skylar’s treat, of course. After years scaling the corporate ladder, she can more than afford it. 

Daphne arrives in NYC with news of her own—the novel she’s finally finished appears to be going nowhere but the trash bin of every publishing house around. She’s devastated but plans to keep her disappointment under wraps, something that becomes trickier when she sees Skylar’s spectacular apartment. Could her life have been like this if she’d chosen a different path? 

What Daphne doesn’t know is she’s not the only one with a secret. Skylar and their friend KC are also holding something back, but what? As the trip unfolds, the truth about each woman emerges, along with tears. 

And laughter. And love. 

The fun-loving trio readers fell for in Wait for the Rain is together once more. Here's to the power of friendship!

The three friends are back, from first reading about these women in Wait for the Rain i fell in love with their friendship. Maria Murnane really knows how to draw you in with emotion and feelings with their friendship. And that cover says everything about friends.

We pick back up with their lives about a year after their Caribbean trip. Skylar is newly engaged and invites Daphne and KC to New York City to help her celebrate. Each friend is dealing with secrets and problems that only time spent with your best girlfriends could help you deal with. 

I'm not spoiling this read for you, if your looking for a sex in the city type of friendship read then look no further. I really enjoyed Bridges even more than Wait for the rain. And although it can be read as a standalone, i was glad i read Wait for the Rain first. So I had more background on the characters. 

The way Maria became an author is a little crazy. She used to work in high-tech PR but hated it, so one day she quit and ended up playing semi-pro soccer in Argentina for a year. While she was down there she decided to write a novel, which was something she'd always dreamed of doing. Fast forward a few years and she's now the best-selling author of Perfect on Paper, It's a Waverly Life, Honey on Your Mind, Chocolate for Two, Cassidy Lane, Katwalk, Wait for the Rain, and Bridges. And yes, she still plays a lot of soccer!
