Guest Post by Maria Murnane, Author of Bridges: A Daphne White Novel

Spend a delightful few days in New York City with Bridges: A Daphne White Novel!

Even if you’re no stranger to New York, Bridges is sure to show you a nook or cranny you didn’t know was there. As the weekend unfolds, here are just some of the things readers who join Daphne, Skylar and KC will get to do:

 * Stay in Skylar’s spectacular Tribeca apartment—which has its own sprawling roof deck *

* Go for a run in scenic Central Park *

* Enjoy a yummy lobster roll at the storied Boathouse restaurant *

* Wander along the abandoned elevated rail track-turned beautiful park known as the High Line *

* Enjoy the cool breeze of a ferry ride on a hot summer day *

*Experience the tasting menu at Daniel, which has not one but two Michelin stars *

* Stroll across the soaring Brooklyn Bridge *

* Shop for handmade wares at the yet eclectic Brooklyn Flea, tucked among the quaint cobblestone streets of Dumbo *

* Top off a Broadway show with a burger and fries at Shake Shack in Madison Square Park, just steps away from the iconic Flatiron building *

I hope that piques your interest enough to pick up a copy of Bridges. If you have questions about it or any of my other novels, please don’t hesitate to email me at maria@mariamurnane.com. I absolutely LOVE hearing from readers. Many thanks to Colleen for allowing me to write this guest post!

It’s the one piece of news Daphne White never expected to hear: Her globe-trotting friend Skylar, who vowed never to get married, is engaged! First on the bride-to-be’s agenda is a celebratory weekend in Manhattan with her two best girlfriends—her treat, of course. After two decades scaling the corporate ladder with ease, Skylar can more than afford it.

While Daphne is happy for Skylar, the timing of the trip couldn’t be worse. Her own relationship is sputtering, and the debut novel she’s finally finished—which she’d hoped would land her on the bestseller lists­­­­—appears to be going nowhere but the trash bin of every publishing house around. She doesn’t want to spoil the weekend with bad news, so she arrives in New York determined to keep her disappointment under wraps. When she sees Skylar’s spectacular Tribeca apartment, however, that becomes a little trickier. She and Skylar were academic peers in college. Could Daphne’s life have been like this if she’d chosen a different path?

Daphne struggles to hide her feelings of inadequacy, but what she doesn’t know is she’s not the only one with a secret. Skylar and KC are also holding something back, but what? As the weekend 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. Never underestimate the power of female friendship!
