Disclosure: I received the book below in order to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own.

The Christmas Eve Secret is the third book in a series.  You don't have to read the first two to enjoy this third one.  I would start with the first two then read this one.  They are titled The Christmas Eve Letter first and  The Christmas Eve Daughter.

Elyse Douglas is an author that writes in a way that you don't want to put the book down.  If you have to put it down, then you are wondering what the characters are doing while you aren't reading the book.  Crazy, I know!  If you enjoy stories based on time travel, this book will fit right in with that enjoyment.

The author weaves a story that fuses the past and the present mercilessly. Eve ends up back in the late 1800s with her best friend Joni, and while Eve knows what to do to fit in, Joni has a harder time doing so.  She then quickly finds herself enjoying this period, especially when she meets a handsome doctor.

This story is about Eve and Patrick and not having to live without him. although there are more characters, you will focus on them.  She bears the brunt of the period where women are not well regarded, but she can bring hope to some people she comes into contact with.  I am not one to do spoilers, but I will say this story is full of time travel, history, and a love the spans a lifetime. It is definitely worth the time that it takes to read it.

Description Christmas Eve Secret: Time Travel Novel by Elyse Douglas

A mysterious man from the past steals the time travel lantern.

When Eve and Patrick find it, they destroy it.

Eve’s life is shattered.

She must return to the past, where secrets await.

In the third novel of THE CHRISTMAS EVE series, Eve and Patrick Gantly are living a normal life in 2019 New York, preparing to celebrate the Christmas season. Patrick is taking courses in forensic psychology and Eve continues to work as a nurse practitioner. To their delight, she is three months pregnant.

Despite their happiness, Eve is having premonitions that something dreadful is about to occur. Concerned about the future and the safety of their child, she insists that they destroy the time travel lantern. Patrick is more cautious.

One afternoon when Patrick is out, a sinister man breaks into the apartment and forces Eve to give him the lantern. In many ways, Eve is relieved the lantern is gone. She hopes they can now live a more normal life.

A day later, Patrick shadows a woman who has been staking out the Gantly’s brownstone apartment, and he confronts her. To his and Eve’s utter shock, they learn that Lucy Rose is from 1924 and that she time-traveled with the man who took the lantern. He returned to 1924, but she chose to stay behind. She offers to sell the lantern back to Eve and Patrick, and they reluctantly agree, hoping to keep it out of unscrupulous hands.

Convinced that the lantern is a threat to their future happiness, Eve and Patrick decide to destroy it.

But the lantern has more power than they could have ever imagined. Once the lantern is destroyed, Eve’s life is completely changed. She must set off on an adventure, in a struggle that will return her to the past, where she will learn the secret of the lantern’s origin and delve into the farthest reaches of her heart.

Praise Christmas Eve Letter: Time Travel Novel by Elyse Douglas

“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. It is a perfect bookclub read.”-Laura’s Interests

“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.”-Whispering Stories
