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.
This is by far the best book in this series. The action, suspense, and plot keep my heart racing and me reading throughout the entire book. It took everything in me to set the book down to go to sleep last night. This book had me hanging on to every word.
I think this was the first book I’ve read that the MC had the same name as me. I really liked Abigail’s character. She had the spunk and wit that made this book very entertaining to read. Even though, I couldn’t relate to her on some things that happened in her life, there were a few things that she goes through that I do understand. I really enjoyed seeing her character develop.
I also really liked Samuel’s development. I remember reading about him in the Inn Keeper’s Daughter…..I didn’t know how I would like him as a main character. However, his true colors shown throughout this book and I loved his character!!
Baby Emma stole the show though! If we all are being honest though any time there is a baby, they always steal the show!!!
This book had me sitting in the edge of my seat from the beginning. The action started rather really in the book and has amazing pacing throughout the entire story. Ms. Griep’s writing style is so lovely and what makes this book, and series so amazing. I don’t think it would be the same series without her amazing writing skills.
Overall, I highly enjoyed this story and series!

About the Author
I hear voices. Loud. Incessant. And very real. Which basically gives me two options: choke back massive amounts of Prozac or write fiction. I chose the latter. Way cheaper. I’ve been writing since I discovered blank wall space and Crayolas. I seek to glorify God in all that I write…except for that graffiti phase I went through as a teenager. Oops. Did I say that out loud?
