Adventure Books: Bridges

If you’re looking for your next great read, check out the book Bridges by Maria Murnane. Murnane is the bestselling author of the Waverly Bryson series. Her latest title Bridges: A Daphne White Novel. It’s the perfect read to hunker down with on a warm, sandy beach or get you through the flight to your vacation destination!


It’s a piece of news Daphne never expected to hear: Her globe-trotting friend Skylar, who vowed never to get married, is engaged! Time to celebrate in Manhattan—Skylar’s treat, of course. After years scaling the corporate ladder, she can more than afford it.


Daphne arrives in NYC with news of her own—the novel she’s finally finished appears to be going nowhere but the trash bin of every publishing house around. She’s devastated but plans to keep her disappointment under wraps, something that becomes trickier when she sees Skylar’s spectacular apartment. Could her life have been like this if she’d chosen a different path?


What Daphne doesn’t know is she’s not the only one with a secret. Skylar and their friend KC are also holding something back, but what? As the trip unfolds, the truth about each woman emerges, along with tears. And laughter. And love. The fun-loving trio readers fell for in Wait for the Rain is together once more. Here’s to the power of friendship!
