    The 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.

    "The Blizzard Bride" is such a good story! The characters are very engaging and the story line is excellent, drawing from history and mixing in a mystery. I hadn't heard of this blizzard before so it was very interesting learning about it in the backdrop of the story. This book was well written and I really enjoyed it. It has a strong story line also of forgiveness.

    The Blizzard Bride is another in the fabulous Daughters of the Mayflower series. It is a historical fiction series that follows a family tree linked by the daughters across American history from the landing of the Mayflower through the events of World War II. In The Blizzard Bride, the author brings us to Nebraska in the late-1880s and the reader meets Abigail Bracey, a young woman on a secret mission to find a missing child. An unexpected pairing with a former suitor, who is now a Secret Service agent on the same mission, has Abby confronting her past heartache--an aching in the corner of her heart that she has ignored for a number or years now. Can she look beyond the hurt and forgive Dash so she can keep focused on identifying the boy before his counterfeiter father finds him? I loved the humor the author has written into the story as well as the historical information regarding the disastrous blizzard of 1888. I had not heard of this blizzard in which 200+ children tragically perished. The pages of this book were infused with drama, history, family, and emotional tension. And threaded throughout was the soft tender message of God--the One who heals our hurts and helps us do the difficult things in life. I am looking forward to reading more of this author's works and more, as well, in the Daughters of the Mayflower series, a series for those who love stories of history, adventure, romance, and family legacy.

    Book #11 in the Daughers of the Mayflower has arrived! Once again we have an historical fiction story based on real events and a lovely romance in the lineage of Mary Elizabeth Chapman and William Lyons of the original book in the series The Mayflower Bride. This one takes place in a small community in the state of Nebraska during the blizzard of January 12, 1888.

    Abigail Bracey was the sole survivor of her family. Her father had been murdered and her mother died from ill health. Abby was a trained school teacher who was asked to serve her country. She would be working undercover as a teacher in the community while gleaning information for the secret service. This mission would include gathering information about several families in an attempt to apprehend the man who actually killed her own father. The man was named Fletcher Pitch but he had been traveling under different aliases and passing off counterfeit money as he moved from place to place.

    Agent Dashiell Lassiter would be working with her to apprehend him. The twist here is that Dash was her childhood sweetheart and fiance from six years ago. He left with no explanation which left Abby angry and hurt. She took the job with the promise that they would not have to spend time together but the situation escalates quickly and that promise would need to be broken. Would they be able to tolerate each other long enough to fulfill their mission?

    This was my first time to read a novel by Susanne Dietze. She has a fast paced writing style and kept me engaged throughout the story. It was a little predictable for me but her scenes and descriptions of the blizzard and action pulled me on to find out more. I did enjoy the story and it was a good continuation of the series. Let me note here that it can totally be read as a stand alone novel and is not dependent on any of the other stories.

    The Blizzard Bride brings history to life. Susanne Dietze makes the characters and setting come alive, bringing a shiver of cold during a sunny day.

    Teacher Abby wants nothing more than to exact justice and revenge for her father's murder. She will agree to anything the Secret Service asks so she can witness the downfall of Pitch, murderer and forger. Anything, that is, but work with her former beau, who left her embarrassed and angry at his betrayal. Dash has felt a step behind the "smart people" his entire life. While school might not have been a strength, his mind is sharp, able to detect fake bills with a simple feel. Because of this, he lands a job with the Secret Service, hunting down one of the most dangerous criminals they have ever encountered. Secrets and half truths have become a part of his life, helping him to forget the pain of his past and the girl he had to leave behind. While Abby has no interest in working with Dash, she agrees so as to avoid being left out of the hunt for Pitch. Dash wants only to apologize for the past and move forward. But God has bigger plans for them both.

    Susanne Dietze weaves a masterful story filled with rich descriptions and insight. The reader feels the cold of the blizzard, the pang of anger at facing an old flame, and the excitement of a student learning a new fact. Her characters come to life, pulling the reader into the story and their lives. You find yourself looking at the clues and hints left to find the hidden identity of Pitch, wanting to help Dash sound out the words, and hold Abby's hand through her confusing and hurting moments. History comes alive through the telling of this story and you don't want to miss it. I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
