Release date: February 1, 2020
I love this series! The writing is so well done and you can tell a whole lot of research went into each story. I also am a sucker for historical romance. I blame it on my daddy who always shared his love for history with me. Having never read anything from Dietze before, I was impressed with her pacing and characters.
Abigail Bracey is the new teacher in Wells, Nebraska. As much as she enjoys her job, she is also there on a job with the Secret Service, working for the Treasury, investigating a counterfeiter’s lost son. Her mission is secret except to Secret Service Agent Dashiell Lassiter who is also in town because they got word that the counterfeiter was headed their way. Abby and Dash are not only coworkers but former childhood sweethearts. Dash left her right before Abby’s entire life fell to pieces and she’s never forgiven him. Can the two of them work together to find this evil man and protect his son?
Having never heard about the crazy blizzard of January 1888, I was intrigued to learn something new and get a great story too. I love how the author wove the story of bitterness and forgiveness even til the very end. Abby’s transformation is beautiful and brought tears to my eyes. Loving your enemy is not easy but it was inspiring to read about.
Highly recommend for those that enjoy historical inspirational fiction.
