About: A Cross-Country Trip through Regency England Brings Intrigue, Rogues, and High Adventure
The must-read conclusion to Michelle Griep’s Bow Street Runners Trilogy: Life couldn’t be better for Abigail Gilbert—but it’s been a long time coming. Having lived with a family who hated her, love is finally within reach. Abby sets off on a journey across England to marry one of the most prestigious gentleman bachelors in the land—until highwaymen upset her plans and threaten her life.
Horse patrol captain Samuel Thatcher arrives just in time to save Abby. But to him she’s simply another victim in a job he’s come to despise. Tired of the dark side of humanity, he intends to buy land and retire.
Abby pleads with him to escort her on the rest of her journey. He refuses until she offers him the thing he desperately needs to achieve his goal: money. Delivering her safely will earn him more than enough to settle into a quiet life.
So begins an impossible trek for the cynical lawman and the proper lady. Each will be indelibly changed by the time they reach her betrothed, if they don’t kill one another first—or fall in love.
Genre: Historical, romance, fiction.
My Rating: 5 stars.
My Recommendation: 16 up for romance and slight violence.
My Favorite Character/s: Wow, well, I enjoyed getting to read about each of these characters and Samuel is my favorite with Emma and then followed by Abigail. Samuel may be my favorite male lead in the whole Trilogy, though seeing as I haven’t read the first book I can not say that . . . Samuel was a character with a hard harsh “protective wall” that hid the real heart behind the character. And I loved him with little Emma. They’re so cute!
My Verse for Samuel is John 15:19
If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. (King James Version.)
My Thoughts: This was a wonderful story that I read in one sitting one morning. (Skipping school . . . Eh, all right I wasn’t skipping really, just putting it off.) Anyway, the opening was a little slow but it quickly got to the point I had to know what happened and that ending? Was. So. Sweet.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review and am truly happy to provide it!
