The Bride of Blackfriars Lane (Blackfriars Lane #2) by Michelle Griep from Barbour Publishing

ISBN13: 9781636092683
Barbour Publishing

My thoughts:  
I found The Bride of Blackfriars Lane, much like Blackfriars Lane #1, a little on the absurd side as far as the female character is concerned. She, Kit, simply has a penchant for being a "before her time" individual and constantly going out-on-a-limb in her traipsing through London's most unsavory areas.

This trait of hers is especially inappropriate (for the historical period in which the story is set) as she is quickly approaching her wedding day to Jackson. The special dress is acquired, the date and time set, she just needs to get herself to the wedding venue on time and appropriately attired. But first..... she has some stuff she needs to investigate. And that is the problem.

The story took some turns I wasn't expecting and the culprit in the demise of the skeleton found in an abandoned building, took some master sleuthing on the part of Kit and Jackson. As to my final opinion of Kit and Jackson at the lend of the book. they do have a flair for the dramatic. I'll let you read the book to see if she makes it to the "wedding" on time.

About the Book: The Continuing Adventure of Jackson and Kit!
Detective Jackson Forge can hardly wait to marry the street-sly swindler who’s turned his life upside down. Kit Turner is equally excited to wed the handsome detective, and what better way to show her love than providing him with a gift any man of the law would love? She determines to bring to justice the men who years ago maimed his brother—despite Jackson’s warning to leave the past in the past. As she digs into the mystery of what happened, she unwittingly tumbles into her own history and endangers her future happiness with Jackson.
