Across the Bridge (Kristin Neva, 2018) is the story of widower Drew Smith and his son AJ who are moving to Copper Island (the Keweenaw) less than two years after the tragic loss of Kristine, AJ’s mom. Although this is technically book No. 3 in the Copper Island series, I had no trouble diving in headfirst to meet the delightful recurring cast of characters.
A Christian contemporary romance, the book centers around how and when Drew will be ready to start a new relationship as the broken family moves from Wausau, Wisconsin to Quincy, Michigan. Drew is a CPA and taking a big step down from his corporate job to fill a lesser role at local Douglass State University. Although Drew was raised downstate in Detroit, he chooses Quincy because his own parents are much older than his wife’s and Kristine’s mom and dad are better prepared to help take care of 10 year-old AJ. This adds a delightful fish-out-of-water aspect as Drew has to negotiate the minefield of a new small town where everyone seems to know everyone else’s secrets, except for Drew himself…
