I had trouble getting into this book. I found myself skimming parts of it. It had an interesting story line. But I just couldn't get into it. The last fourth of the book got interesting and kept me reading. I hate to give bad reviews. But I will be giving this book two stars.
I was given this book by Barbour Publishing via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated in any way.
Karen RWAGender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Touching and inspirational story based on real historyJanuary 4, 2020Karen RWAGender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5A touching, inspirational story based on true events set in 1888 Nebraska. An undercover operation to flush out a fugitive counterfeiter becomes dangerous for a Secret Service agent and the local schoolteacher with a mission of her own. The book is one of a series, but reads easily as a stand alone.
This story drew me in with characters that are far from perfect, but are quite courageous and determined to finish their mission no matter what the personal cost. Plenty of inspiration is found between the action, with a strong underlying redemptive theme, also pulling out the roots of bitterness, extending grace and mercy, healing and forgiveness. It was done well as the main characters wrestled with their faith and past hurts.
The story moves at a good pace as it builds towards a catastrophic event and the mystery is solved. It was interesting to read the author's notes at the end about the real history behind it. It was sad, but made me thankful in many ways.
Recommend to readers who enjoy clean inspirational historical romances. 4.5 stars

SusanClover, SCAge: 55-65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Great Addition to SeriesDecember 28, 2019SusanClover, SCAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4'She'd tended the plant of bitterness too. Nourished it with years of resentment. Hatred.'
The Blizzard Bride is the eleventh in the Daughters of the Mayflower series and truly wonderful. I did not know that this blizzard was a real event and Dietze describes it in such detail, it inspired me to do research myself! She weaves the actual event into the story so well and the characters are so fascinating, that I was pulled in from the very beginning and read the book in one day. Very well done.
*My thanks to Barbour Publishing and the author for a copy of this book. No review was expected and the opinions here are my own.
Ebos Aifuobhokhan4 Stars Out Of 5CaptivatingDecember 21, 2019Ebos AifuobhokhanQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I was captivated with the story of this book from the start till finish. It was steady and interesting.
Abby and Dash were so relatable. They are going through struggles everyone at on time have gone through.
The story unfolds as Abby is still reeling from events that happened years ago and she had to work with Dash who she rather not be in the same town with.
I loved how the both of them put aside their grievances with one another and worked for the common good of others. One shinning virtue about the both of them was their selflessness.
I loved how the story emulated that even in our sin and anger God stills pursues us.
Love always finds a way and this book brought that to life wonderfully.
I received a copy of this book from Netgalley and this is my honest opinion.
Floraljoy5 Stars Out Of 5Finding forgiveness and healingDecember 15, 2019FloraljoyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book grabbed my attention from the very beginning and had me turning pages as fast as I could in order to see what would transpire. I liked the mix of faith, romance, drama and mystery. It was well paced and whilst an easy read; it had a depth and maturity to it.
There were important lessons about forgiveness and trusting God. Abby had built a wall to protect her heart but this caused her to be isolated from both the Lord and those who cared about her. Meanwhile Dash also had regrets from his past and working together again they were able to find absolution and hope for the future.
This was a fabulous addition to the Daughters of the Mayflower series and I look forward to reading more books by this talented author.
I received a free copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review. All opinions expressed are solely my own.
