The Christmas Eve Secret by Elise Douglas

The Christmas Eve Secret - A Time Trave…

The Christmas Eve Secret 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.​ d
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.

My take:  This is the third book in this time travel series. This book have them traveling back to 1884 and meeting up with Nicola Tesla and Thomas Edison.  Also Eve's best friend Joni joins her on her adventure.  This book explores the times attitude toward women.  I found myself on the edge of my seat and looking forward to what was going to happen next.  I highly recommend this whole series. 

I received a review copy of this book from Virtual Author Book tours in exchange for my honest review.  All opinions are my own.
