Author: Joey Jones

Genre: Contemporary Romance/Suspense
Page Count: 222


A Bridge Apart is a remarkable love story that tests the limits of trust and forgiveness... 

In the quaint river town of New Bern, North Carolina, at 28 years of age the pieces of Andrew Callaway’s life are all falling into place. His real estate firm is flourishing and he’s engaged to be married in less than two weeks to a beautiful banker named Meredith Hastings. But when Meredith heads to Tampa, Florida – the wedding location – with her mother, fate, or maybe some human intervention, has it that Andrew happens upon Cooper McKay, the only other woman he’s ever loved. 

A string of shocking emails lead Andrew to question whether he can trust his fiancĂ©, and in the midst of trying to unravel the mystery he finds himself spending time with Cooper. When Meredith catches wind of what’s going on back at home, she’s forced to consider calling off the wedding, which ultimately draws Andrew closer to Cooper. Andrew soon discovers he’s making choices he might not be able, or even want, to untangle. As the story unfolds, the decisions that are made will drastically change the lives of everyone involved, and bind them closer together than they could have ever imagined.


A friend of mine sent me this book. She knows I love reading and finding new authors. As a North Carolina native myself, I has happy to find out that this is a NC author. I'm glad she sent me this book because I loved it.  A Bridge Apart is Jones' debut novel. Jones pulls from his surroundings in North Carolina to create this love story. This is reminiscent of Nicholas Sparks, another North Carolina native, who has a similar writing style. 

The book had a rocky start. The author began the book being over-descriptive but as the story progressed it leveled out. The story is told through multiple POV's. Multiple characters lives are intertwined, thus giving us multiple POV's. The author does a great job in keeping them organized. 

The romance is between Andrew and the woman he must choose. Will it be Meredith, the woman he is engaged to, or will it be Cooper, a woman from his past. You think you know who he will choose until the unexpected happens and it forces Andrew to see who he truly loves. The love story told here isn't told with graphic sex scenes and language. It's a clean romance but it is one that will definitely keep you intrigued. It has suspense and mystery, along with the anticipation of who he will choose. 

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I felt that the author did a wonderful job in telling Andrew's story. Based on this book, the author should find great success in this writing genre. I can't wait to find out what books the author has in the works.
