"A second chance for romance...

Hidden in Graystone Manor is a book containing all the dark secrets of Harmony Harbor, and Ava DiRossi is determined to find it. No one-especially not her ex-husband, Griffin Gallagher-can ever discover what really tore her life apart all those years ago. With Griffin back in town, it's more important than ever that she find the book before someone else does. Because her ex is still angry with her for leaving him. And he still has no idea Ava never stopped loving him...

Ava is no longer the vibrant, happy woman Griffin had once loved and married, and he would do anything to bring back the sparkle to her brilliant green eyes. But what's never changed are the sexy sparks of attraction between Ava and Griffin, and he won't give her up again without a fight. He knows there's the real possibility of a future together... if the truth doesn't burn the bridge between them forever."

I have a soft spot for this series. Debbie Mason has put together a continuing tale of family, secrets and some ghostly intervention to take you away from your day to day life. Here in Harmony Harbor you can see how a fight to keep a stately hotel from becoming a victim to a developer brings fractions of families together. It allows us to follow through the individual books all of those who are touched by it.

I just knew the moment I picked up Starlight Bridge by Debbie Mason that this was going to be the book that will briefly pull me out of my reading slump, and I was right.

We met Ava and Griffin in book one, and ever since then I have wanted to know their story.

Ava and Griffin are divorced. They use to have one of a kind love, but after Griffin get's deployed, something happens that changes Ava and suddenly she is serving the divorce papers. It didn't take long for the readers to kind of learn wha

Not my cuppa. I wasn't that interested in the romance, and overall the plot was too bland. The past secret was self evident from page 2 and the lack of a tight story made the reading more than a bit boring.

Mostly I couldn't warm up to the main characters whose main characteristics seemed to be a pushover. Everyone rolled them over. Meh... It was soo irritating :/ Much more than the ghost and her antics... :)

Ava has a secret and there's only one person who knew. This woman wrote it down before she died together with a number of other secrets she'd been told in her life. Ava is trying to find this memoir, so she can keep her secret safe. Ava works as a maid in Graystone Manor and is taking care of her handicapped father. Everyone in Harmony Harbor knows something changed Ava. She was happily married to Griffin and was well on her way to getting a nursing degree, but all of a sudden she dropped out an ...more

Favorite Quotes:

She doesn’t look suspicious, she looks constipated.

Ava took a long, satisfying drag on her cigarette. She’d given in to its siren call after she’d eaten the two cupcakes she’d snuck from the kitchen at the manor. Sadly, they were divine, and probably a thousand calories each.

I wanna write a new ending to our story. One that has you growing old by my side.

This series is turning out to be a wonderful ride. It's heartwarming, romantic and funny! The trifecta of a good romance for me. A book works better when I find myself crying one second, laughing the next and sighing after.

I'm not always a fan of second chance romances. I feel like it's a song played twice with the first time not being so good. But since I love Mason's books I just had to give it a try. Plus, it did

I am absolutely hooked on the small town charm that Debbie Mason does so well. This new series is no exception, with friends and neighbors who know each other and their business better than they should, and meddle more than is necessary. Yet, it is just the kind of community one would dream of, where someone has your back, where people look out for you, and where you can find happiness.

The only reason that I didn't give this story 5 stars was that this was a tale based around a gross lack of co

Another great story in Debbie Mason’s continuing Harmony Harbor saga. This story belongs to Ava and Griffin. It’s a story of lost love, second chances and past secrets ready to explode at any moment.

As we learned in the first book, there is a journal which spills the deepest, darkest secrets of several people from Harmony Harbor. The book is hidden somewhere in Graystone Manor. Unfortunately for Ava, she’s one of those people with a deep, dark secret. She is determined to find that book before a

This was such a wonderful story, I absolutely love second chance at love stories and this one did not disappoint. This one had me turning the pages so I could see what was going to happen and see if these two would finally get their happily ever after. This was an emotional read and I enjoyed every minute of it.

I've never read any work by Debbie Mason before and I feel like I've been missing out on something special. She created characters in both Ava and Griffin that will affirm your faith in love, friendship and humanity. I was awed by Ava and everything she went thru and OH SO proud of the woman she was!

Second chance romance stories always tug at my heartstrings and Starlight Bridge by Debbie Mason was no exception. I found myself not wanting to put this book down - savoring every word, wanting to know how this amazing story would turn out. Even though this is the second book in the series, it is not necessary to read the first book to understand what is going on, but I would suggest begin with the first book, just to have some background information – especially character introductions.

Starlight Bridge is storytelling at it's best. Ever since I read the fun start of the series, MISTLETOE COTTAGE, I have been waiting for Ava and Griffin's story.
This series has something for everyone. It is full of love, family, loyalty, betrayal, laughter, an odd new friendship and even a ghost. It's been over a decade since Ava divorced Griffin, without telling him why, and since then she's a shadow of her former self. Griffin has returned to Harmony Harbor for a short time, to see

ARC REVIEW

Harmony Harbor book two, Starlight Bridge. I love a good second chance romance and this one was wonderful. Ava and Griffin never stopped loving each other but for reasons Ava never shared they divorced. The two characters, Ava and Griffin, were we written and very easy to connect with their chemistry was palpable. The love and loyalty to Griffin in the Gallagher family is obvious because of their dislike toward Ava after the divorce. As a whole this book has so much going on; Sophie,

The Harmony Harbor series and this author are quickly becoming a bit of a must read for me.

Add in the beautiful second chance romance of Starlight Bridge and I was a goner.

We met Ava in the first book Mistletoe Cottage, but you don't really need to read it before Starlight Bridge (though why would you want to miss any of the goodness?)

Family tensions, business dramas, ghostly interventions - none of this can stop our Ava and Griffin from falling in

WTF Are You Reading?
Debbie Mason's Starlight Bridge has all of the drama and conflict that fans of Women's Fiction crave. Along with a very healthy helping of charm and "happily ever after" styled romance.

Graystone Manor may be a hotel. But to the family that has called the both the manor house and the surrounding grounds home for generations; it is so much more. Now, that family legacy and all that it stands for hangs in the balance. With the death of family matriarch Colleen still fresh in the hearts and minds of

Letting Griffin go was the hardest thing that Ava has ever had to do, and it has haunted her everyday since, and no matter how hard she has tried to convince herself it was for the best, her heart just doesn't believe it.

I was anxious to read Ava’s story in Starlight Bridge by Debbie Mason. Hers was a story that needed to be told. I wanted her to have a happily ever after and knew that she was getting in her own way to achieving it. Thanks to a friendly ghost who kind of acts like a fairy godmother now, happily ever afters are just what every character might get in this series.

Starlight Bridge is a second chance romance with surprising emotional twists that completely catch you off-guard but make this such a great and unexpected read. Following on from the first book, this can be read as a standalone, however, there is an ongoing storyline in the background (with a mixed in spiritual element) that is easier to follow if you have read the first book, although each book focus

"Starlight Bridge" by Debbie Mason. This tale is one of second chances and renewed true love. Ava and Griffin married young and divorced young, but no one but Ava knew why. I liked Ava a lot and my heart hurt for her. Showing her strength, she struggled through and did what she needed to do to survive. Griffin was sexy and sweet and amazingly understanding too. There are many secondary characters, which at times was a bit confusing, but didn't take away, too much, from Ava and Griffin's

Each book in this series keeps me on my toes, has me fall more in love with this town and cast of characters. Debbie Mason has created a down home feeling that keeps you wanting more.

I love the scramble for that book of secrets and the story of the bridge is so romantic. Especially that gesture at the end by Griffin-my heart melted.

Ava has lost so much but is strong and resilient. She has pulled herself into a cocoon of what she once was and it’s sad to see. She is trying so hard to protect hers
