Lakebridge Spring Book Review And ~~Giveaway~~

Vermont, picturesque and lovely, attracts visitors from across the country in search for the perfect picture, the perfect fall foliage or perhaps a taste of maple syrup. Stansbury is best known for the odd covered bridge that spans Stansbury Lake and goes nowhere, connecting no roads and serving no known purpose. The locals call it the Lakebridge. Very few know of its mysterious origins and fewer care to know more. Those visiting the town perhaps take a few snapshots and leave, their curiosity quelled by an uneasy feeling that they shouldn’t think on it anymore.

The tourists will eventually leave Stansbury, but its residents strangely linger, seemingly held captive by a force they barely recognize. They also do not think about the town’s mysterious artifact much except in passing, all but Gil, his father, Ben, and a few others. They know of the bridge’s dark history and understand that it is responsible for every horror that ever befell the people of Stansbury: the people who fear the bridge but will not speak of it. The bridge makes people do things – bad things – so that it can continue to love and care for them all.

Some have tried to destroy the bridge, but as long as the bridge is fed with the lives of the innocents of Stansbury it will go on – loving the people of Stansbury.

I was born in Vermont.  I lived in the Burlington area for quite a few years, and I still have a lot of family in that area.

When Natasha asked if I would review her book about Vermont, I just had to do it!!!  I love Vermont.

Lakebridge Spring starts out with a couple from Miami traveling to Vermont to tour the area in their large motor home.

Rick has just retired, and him and Marisol are checking out the country.  They stop in the small town of Stansbury, to visit their biggest tourist attraction, the Lakebridge.

While they are in the town, the run into some interesting characters, like Gil who is the local gift shop owner.  He has an interesting story.  His life is full of really bad luck!!

The Lakebridge is evil.  All of the towns folk know this.  It has taken the lives of many people.  No one can seem to stop it.  All though one man really tries!!

Natasha's writing style is very creative.  She tells the life story of many of the towns folk, and how they all inter twine.

There are many sad parts, but you are riveted to the pages as you go!!

If you love an Erie story with some great twists, then this book is for you!!

You can purchase LakeBridge Spring on Amazon!! 

I am also very happy to be able to give two of you a signed copy of Natasha's book!!!
