Mitchell went from his job as an engineer to the job of removing padlocks placed by lovers on bridge railings and padlocks that were starting to weigh down the bridges.
Mitchell lived alone with his daughter since his wife died, and he had a difficult time making ends meet, keeping her entertained, and trying to not think about love since he still grieved for his wife.
One day as Mitchell was removing the padlocks, he saw a woman falling over the edge of the railing. He jumped in after her and rescued her.
Of course he didn't like the attention he received from his rescue, but he did keep thinking about this girl. His only regret was that he never got her name.
We follow Mitchell as he looks for this woman and finds out that her sister is his daughter’s music teacher and that she had disappeared a year ago. He then becomes involved in the family’s search for Yvette. He also finds out that there are some secrets in this family.
Besides helping the family search for Yvette, Mitchell is pulled into a journalist's story about his heroics when the journalist asked readers to write to him. His involvement is to read the hundreds of handwritten letters that have made their way to her desk.
Ms. Patrick has written another heartwarming book with characters you will fall in love with and a story line that will keep you turning the pages.
I always enjoy Ms. Patrick's books because they are uplifting and sweet.
THE SECRETS OF LOVE STORY BRIDGE will warm your heart just as all of her books.
A truly enjoyable read. 5/5
This book was given to me by the publisher and BookBrowse in exchange for an honest review.
