CherryPie04205 Stars Out Of 5An Awe-Inspiring AccountJanuary 14, 2021CherryPie0420I am almost 40 years old and I sadly have never seen real snow. Living in Texas my whole life the most we ever get where I live, if we get anything at all, is snow flurries, sleet, and ice. So, to read about a blizzard I really have to use my imagination to picture what a blizzard of this magnitude would look like.
For me, The Blizzard Bride had a slow start, but reading about the events of this insane blizzard, as well as the growing apprehension of Abby and Dash finding their man before it was too late had me binge reading into the early hours of the morning until the end.
All of the characters are wonderful, with such warmth and heart. I have been watching old episodes of Little House on the Prairie, and the night I finished The Blizzard Bride I watched an episode that was almost identical to the blizzard in this book. My family thought I was crazy for getting so excited about an old television show but I couldn't help it! You can get more coincidental than that.
I had never heard of this historic blizzard before, but after reading The Blizzard Bride I plan on learning more. This was a wonderful edition to the Daughters of the Mayflower series, and a joy to read. Well written with plenty of intrigue, love, forgiveness, and characters that inspire, even in the cold of winter.

Based on true events, this is the story of the terrible blizzard of 1888 in Nebraska. I love the character development and the flow of the story! Breath-taking and exciting to say the least, this story includes action and romance.

Yvette K.5 Stars Out Of 511th in series - Daughters of the MayflowerJune 11, 2020Yvette K.Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5In pursuit of the counterfeiter who murdered her father, schoolteacher Abigail Bracey and her former beau, Secret Service agent Dashiell Lassiter, are undercover in the small town of Wells, Nebraska. As Abby works to identify the son and sister-in-law of the elusive "Artist," she grows closer to the local families than she had planned - and to Dash as well.
With multiple possibilities, and the complication of the devastating Children's Blizzard of 1888, this is a well plotted and well told tale that blends true history, mystery, danger, and a second chance at love romance.
In a series that boasts a line-up of fantastic authors, Susanne Dietze's The Blizzard Bride is among the best.

bell26374 Stars Out Of 5A nice addition to the Daughters of the Mayflower SeriesMay 11, 2020bell2637This book is part of a larger Daughters of the Mayflower series but can be read as a stand alone.
When Abigail's father is killed, she learns that he was not who everyone thought him to be and that knowledge lead to Abigail's mother's death and Abigail being ostracized from Chicago's society. When a gentleman approaches Abigail about a plan that will catch her father's killer, she's all in until she learns that the person she would be working with was someone she was supposed to marry 6 years before. But her need to catch her father's killer overtakes her need to be away from Dash.
Abby struggles with the choices that the people around her made that impacted her life and she blames God for that and becomes cold and distant but a chance encounter with someone else who had been dealt a similar hand taught her that she needed to return to her faith in God.
I enjoyed this story! It had the correct amount of twists and turns and depth for most of the characters. I had figured out who they were looking for pretty early on but there were just a few things to make me wonder if I was correct. Overall, well done!
Thank you NetGalley for the opportunity to read this book for my honest opinion and review.
rkfall5 Stars Out Of 5#11April 20, 2020rkfallThe Blizzard Bride by Susanne Dietze is a wonderful story of past love that comes around again. There is a child who needs protection and the female lead chooses to go in to a town as a teacher to help this child out. I loved reading how this unfolded right down to the man, Dash, coming around and wanting to protect her as she puts herself in this position. This book is one of many of the books in the series by Barbour Publishing called The Daughters of the Mayflower. Each book can be read independently from one other.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.
