Officer Alexander Moore goes undercover as a gambling gentleman to expose a high-stakes plot against the king--and he's a master of disguise, for Johanna Langley believes him to be quite the rogue. . .until she can no longer fight against his unrelenting charm.

I delighted in this novel, another in the Bow Street runners series. Joanna works her heart to the bone at the Blue Hedge Inn her family owns. She watches over her young brother and her aging mother who are her world. The Inn’s holds a rough crowd in the lower class section of Dover, England, but it’s her life and she must make ends meet to pay the rent. Unbeknownst to her, an undercover officer has taken up residence under her roof, with the name of Alexander Morton. He’s not the usual customer since he pays ahead of time for his room and board. The bar brings in ruffians and some aren’t who they seem to be.

I enjoyed the intrigue and mystery played out in the plot. The two main characters cannot deny the chemistry that develops between them. Alexander struggles to maintain his strong, godly beliefs while he discovers who is smuggling at the docks. The author incorporates some humorous and colorful characters, such as Mr. Nutbrown, who only speaks through his puppet and skips paying his bill by climbing out his window.

Michelle Griep, one of my favorite writers, brings depth, true human flaws plus graces into her books. She clearly believes that faith in God is worth clinging to in any circumstance. ( )

I received this as a free kindle book through Goodreads Giveaway. Overall all the story was interesting and I enjoy historical fiction. I debated on the rating (3 vs 4) and decided it was missing something or it was just too slow moving but a good story line. ( )

Where do I begin?? I loved this book! From the first page it had me hooked. I was already telling my family to read this book while I was still in the second chapter! Michelle Griep has a way with words. I really enjoyed how all her characters were different, and they stayed different throughout the whole book instead of blending together towards the end like some stories do. And then, you think you've figured it all out, but nope! Miss Michelle throws another curve! It was awesome! This story was filled with lots spiritual content, intrigue, suspense and plenty of laugh out loud moments! I really didn't want this book to end!

Note: There were a few fighting scenes that could be a little much for some people and some comments hinted at things I wasn't comfortable with. But I still loved this story! Miss Michelle is an author I definitely want on my shelf! ( )

Michelle Griep writes exquisite historical fiction, and I absolutely loved the adventure and romance of The Innkeeper’s Daughter. With transporting atmosphere, the story comes to life from the very first page, and as I delved into the world of Regency-era spies, smugglers, traitors, and a very stubborn innkeeper, I couldn’t stop reading. It’s intriguing and suspenseful and an utter delight to read. I can’t recommend this book enough to readers of historical fiction and look forward to reading much more from Griep in the future. (Next up, The Captured Bride.)

Thanks to Celebrate Lit, I received a complimentary copy of The Innkeeper’s Daughter and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own. ( )

I can count on one hand the number of Christian Historical fiction authors who can capture me completely, take me to another place and time, and not let go until the end. Michelle Griep is one of these authors as I always see a little of Charles Dickens, my favorite childhood author, in her storytelling. This time Michelle not only gave us a romance between Johanna Langley (the Innkeeper’s daughter) and Alexander Moore a.k.a. Alexander Morton (? You will have to read the story to know more) but also a peek at another between Eliza (Johanna’s mom) and Sir Richard Ford, plus lots of intrigue and mystery throughout.

Michelle’s characters of which there are many are all well developed each with very distinct personalities. I would have to say my two favorites were Thomas (Johanna’s little brother) and Mr. Nutbrown (a patron of the inn) as both made me smile. My least favorite character was Mr. Spurge not because of Michelle’s writing but because of the person he was. Shall we just say he took after Mr. Scrooge in A Christmas Carol.

I did not realize when I chose to read this book that it was a sequel to Brentwood's Ward, however it can be read as a stand-alone. Overall I enjoyed reading The Innkeeper’s Daughter and would recommend this faithful, and at times sit-on-the-edge of your seat story of the impoverished devout working class of the regency period in England.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing, Inc. via NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own. ( )
