The Kissing Bridge

The Kissing Bridge is the third book in Tricia Goyer's Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors series, and since I have not read the first two books, I can attest that this is a stand-alone book. Just enough background information is given so that readers get to know the characters and the prior events that impact the story, but not so much of a recap that the pacing of the book is disrupted. 

The main character of The Kissing Bridge is Rebecca, who suffered a tragic loss that causes her to make some major decisions that change her life. Her Amish lifestyle does change somewhat, but her faith remains strong, and she is determined to pursue a career that will help her community. Of course a handsome man enters the story, thus the "bachelor" in the series title! But, Tricia Goyer masterfully handles the romantic elements in a God-honoring way.

My favorite things about The Kissing Bridge are the well-developed, believable characters and the beautiful way Tricia writes. It is easy to get immersed in the story through the characters thoughts and the vivid descriptions of the setting. As this genre of fiction goes, The Kissing Bridge is not only a good story, but also really nicely crafted.
