‘BRIDGES‘ (A Daphne White Novel) by MARIA MURNANE

KC kissed her wedding ring. “Ditto. I’m just impressed that you’re making such an effort to meet someone. It sounds exhausting.”
“Tell me about it. I swear it takes as much strategic planning as preparing for a trial – and is usually more mentally draining. I can’t believe I’m back to the games, the balance between flirting and pretending not to care, the not knowing how long to wait before responding to a text, or what to say in a text, or wondering what he means in his text, or wondering if you’re reading too much into his texts, or wondering if you blew it because of a text, or if he even read your text. It’s enough to drive you crazy!
Then, on top of all that insanity, once you decide that you like a guy, there’s the not knowing when to sleep with him for the first time, wondering if he’ll lose interest if you do it too soon, or if he’ll lose interest if you wait too long. And then if you do decide to sleep with him, there’s the whole ‘Will I regret it?’ or ‘Will it be any good?’ And then what if the sex isn’t good? Do you give it another chance? Or do you cut and run? And if it wasn’t good for you, does that mean it wasn’t good for him either? It’s enough to drive any sane woman over the edge. Your Honor, I rest my case.”
‘BRIDGES‘ – The Premise
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.
