Ava Dirossi has worked in Graystone Manor for years where
sheloves her job as a house keeper. Years ago she was
married to the grandson of the manor, Griffin. Because of
some circumstances, Ava divorced him. Griffin has
always been in love with Ava and could never figure out
why Ava ended their marriage and no one but Ava knew why.
Griffin had moved on with his life and married his close
friend Lexi. That marriage also ended in a divorce, as
Lexi knew that Griffin had never gotten over Ava.
The last few years have been very hard on Ava. Her
mother passed away and her father Gino was in a bad
accident. No longer able to work Gino has become a very
angry man. Ava must do everything for him. If Gino
doesn't like what she does, he physically abuses her.
While working one day at the manor, Griffin is trying to
talk with her, and he grabs her arm. Ava pulls away and
Griffin notices the big bruise on her arm but Ava will not
tell him where this came from.
As much as Ava and Griffin try to avoid each other, they
can't, their love blooms again. The only problem is

to it. This is just one of the problems that she is
trying to work though. As all of the secrets come to
life, will Ava and Griffin be able to walk over the

other. Not a lot of sex, but enough hints so you can
image what happens. The way that Debbie shows how first
love can become second love and last. I also enjoyed the
way that many of the characters from her other books were

with their relationships. I really like books that are
in a series.
Debbie Mason also shows how in a small community, people
do care about each other. In this day and age it just
makes me wish that was how people were today. While Ava
and Griffin had a lot to overcome Mason makes it all
come together. STARLIGHT BRIDGE left me with a very warm
