The Blizzard Bride #ourgoodlifebooklist

The book was provided for me free of charge in exchange for my honest opinion.

Eleventh in the series called The Daughters of the Mayflower, this book by Susanne Dietz highlights the blizzard of 1888. The books in this series can be read as stand-alone fiction, but you may want to start at the beginning and get a good sense of history that you weren't taught in school!

This historical event occurred in January 1888. The author shares her research on the back of the novel and tells you what are the facts in the story and what she has taken some liberties with. Because of the way the author chooses to start the story, the first couple of chapters are slow, but that quickly gives way when the action of the book gets started.

This book explores the role of the secret service and how the operation worked in the 1880s. That was an interesting part for me. The romance of the book is between two characters that have a past together. When an author does that, I think he/she takes a risk. It is hard to write about all that the two have shared, and sometimes the reader feels a little lost or left out.

The plot is about finding counterfeiters who are in the town that the main character has moved to be a teacher. The story really moves along, especially when the blizzard becomes a part of the action. I truly believe that the story will be a page-turner for you as it was for me!
