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.
Reviewer: Laura J. Davis
Heart-stopping, romantic and full of fun are not even close to describing the adventure awaiting you when you delve into The Bride of Blackfriars Lane by Michelle Griep. While not a part of a series, there is a first book called The Thief of Blackfriars Lane. I insist you read it first so that you can enjoy the chemistry of Kit Turner and Jackson Forge a bit longer. You will be hard-pressed to put either book down.
Once again, Kit is doing what Kit does best and pokes her nose in where she shouldn't. Despite her agreement with Jackson not to keep secrets from him, she ends up doing a little snooping (on her wedding day, of all things!) and, by doing so, ruins what could have been the best day of her life.
Without giving anything away, I will say that what Kit did, resulted in almost destroying her relationship with Jackson. Hang on to your hats because Griep catapults you into the dark past of Victorian London with witty dialogue, a brisk pace, and so vividly rendered that I swear I could smell the sewage. This is a book you will not be able to put down. With a wonderful faith theme running throughout, I guarantee you will love this book!
