Once Upon a Dicken’s Christmas

by Michelle Griep

REVIEW OF FIRST NOVELLA- 12 DAYS OF BLEAKLY MANOR

This is a short quick novella. I rarely thoroughly enjoy novellas as I did this one! There is so much mystery, suspense , intrigue, and romance packed into the pages of this enjoyable read. I’ve had it for a while, but I wanted to wait until closer to Christmas to read and review.

If you like novellas and shorter stories,I highly recommend this read. Great and interesting characters, much is hidden to be revealed at just the right time, and romance blossoms as well. Truly, this book is so well done considering the size…less than 200 pages. It’s a thoroughly enjoyable mystery read so go get it!!

I received this book from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

REVIEW OF SECOND NOVELLA- A TALE OF TWO HEARTS

Another fantastic Christmas Novella from this author. I will readily admit that I’m not a fan of novellas, but I so enjoyed the first in this series, and I was eager to read the second.

Wonderful characters, great story, lovely faith theme, and much Dickens as well. To top it all off, of course a happier ever after….maybe for more than one thinks.

Terrific story.

I won one book and received one from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

MY REVIEW OF THE THIRD BOOK-THE OLD LACE SHOP

A wonderful Christmas novella by Michelle Griep! She creates fascinating stories even in novellas. That’s no small feat since I’m not a big fan of them. Such a sweet story…and I always love children in books! A sweet read that’s enjoyable,fun, and some wonderful Christian morals enter twined in the story. The little girl touched my heart.

This collection is a wonderful touch of Christmas for any reader. I thoroughly enjoyed each unique story…so go get it to enjoy a wonderful feeling of the Christmas spirit.

The Noble Guardian

by Michelle Griep

BOOK SUMMARY

 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.

MY REVIEW

“ I respect your caution in sparing my sensibilities, sir, but I believe God provides us with fellow sojourners to help lighten our heavy loads through prayer and encouragement.”

I have so enjoyed this series by Michelle Griep! Lots of action, adventure, and love written on a page and woven into intriguing tales. The Noble Guardian for me was all about the characters .

Abigail is an endearing character full of spunk. She actually reminds me of a dear highschool friend so I really felt as if I knew her. She always makes the most of situations. Her character is so well done that the readers emotions are definitely highly invested in her outcome.

Samuel can be a bit of an enigma, unless you know a man with a harsh exterior and a heart as soft as a pillow. So he’s not so different from many men. His character is well done, and he brings a lot of mood and tension to the read.

With a brooding man who exudes a harsh exterior, a woman who needs his protection to get to her fiancé , and a little one who needs them to survive, all of this wrapped up in a story of magistrates, highway men, and a man wanting to kill for revenge…you don’t want to miss book number three of the Bow Street Runners.

“…ye can safely leave them in God’s hands. Not that He can’t use yer gun, though, mind he. There’s no sin in wanting to protect them. The fault lies when he think ye’re their sole protector. Aye?

“It’s more noble to love, even if it’s not returned, than to live without it.”

I received this book from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

Having some fun with photography!
