“Forgive my cryptic invitation to lunch, Miss Bracey, but I dared not go into detail on the chance your post was intercepted.”Opening line from “The Blizzard Bride” by Suzanne Dietze
Once again, the daughters of the Mayflower series delivers a fantastic historical romance full of great mystery and easy-to-relate to characters.
Author, Suzanne Dietze, in The Blizzard Bride, introduces us to Abigail. Our leading lady has suffered huge setbacks because of the murder of her father and she is determined to help the government to catch the man responsible. To aid the investigation, she is set to teaching in rural Nebraska! Swiftly she connects with this sincere and warm town.
Our leading man is the government representative on the scene. The man he is searching for is more than a murderer but also an elusive counterfeiter. Agent Dashiell Lassiter is also Abigail’s former boyfriend to Abigail. He fled the relationship for seemingly no reason leaving Abigail broken hearted.
The two have to lean on each other, God and the town community in the hunt for the murderer. The novel explores the principles and practicalities of Christian forgiveness and it’s healing power and Suzanne does a great job.
The historical aspects is elegantly handled and forms a twist in the mystery. I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish! It’s a five out of five enJOYment and highly recommended!
From the back cover:
Abigail Bracey arrives in Nebraska in January 1888 to teach school…and to execute a task for the government: to identify a student as the hidden son of a murderous counterfeiter—the man who killed her father.
Agent Dashiell Lassiter doesn’t want his childhood sweetheart Abby on this dangerous job, especially when he learns the counterfeiter is now searching for his son, too, and he’ll destroy anyone in his way. Now Dash must follow Abby to Nebraska to protect her…if she’ll let him within two feet of her. She’s still angry he didn’t fight to marry her six years ago, and he never told her the real reason he left her.
All Dash wants is to protect Abby, but when a horrifying blizzard sweeps over them, can Abby and Dash set aside the pain from their pasts and work together to catch a counterfeiter and protect his son—if they survive the storm?
