The Blizzard Bride (Daughters of the Mayflower #10) by Susanne Dietze

My thoughts:  This series "The Daughters of the Mayflower" has been a joy to read. I think I've only missed one to my despair and shame. Anyway, reading The Blizzard Bride, #11 in the series, has been interesting in that it has a woman (our Blizzard Bride) serving in the US Secret Service to help identify and apprehend a sinister counterfeiter and murderer.

A man who was a childhood friend and sweetheart is also engaged by the Secret Service to bring the culprit to justice. But Abigail's and Dash's unpleasant past experience with each other doesn't make them the best work companions. So that brings a lot of ups and downs in the story.

The blizzard is a Kansas sudden storm and there are children wandering and lost in it. Melodramatic? Perhaps, but it does make for a good read. And true to life happenings such as these occurred in the annuals of history.

You'll meet some delightful and interesting characters drawn in words on the pages of The Blizzard Bride and you'll find yourself rooting for the good guys. The children and their antics and personalities are a delight.

I recommend this book and the entire series.

About the book: A Blizzard Changes Everything

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?
