Weekend Review-The Golden Bride by Kimberley Woodhouse
Hello friends, as we savor the last hours of our weekend I wanted to share with you a book that I recently had the privilege to read. It has romance, suspense, and a dash of history. . .The Golden Bride by Kimberley Woodhouse.
Recently widowed Olivia Brighton is beginning a new chapter in her life with the help of her brother Daniel. As she manages his San Francisco restaurant, her gold rush seeking patrons are less than clean in behavior and appearance. And this leaves Olivia with no desire to get to know any of them better.
Joseph Sawyer is her brother's best friend when Olivia meets him, she's less than impressed, as his life centers around mining. Joseph is a politician as well, and as a result, we get a glimpse into the plight of forced labor occurring in crime-ridden San Francisco in 1849 which author Kimberly Woodhouse writes about with care and compassion.
Do Olivia and Joseph find an irresistible attraction and a rush of love? Find out as you read this book and enjoy each wonderful page.
The Golden Bride is the 8th in the Daughters of the Mayflower series. It can be read as a stand-alone, but make sure to delve into the whole series, it's wonderful.
I received this book from Barbour Publishing, the thoughts and opinions are solely my own. I was under no obligation to write a review.
Happy reading friends, and have a wonderful day! What book has you captivated you recently?
