Welcome to First Line Friday!
Today I’m featuring
The Bride of Blackfriars Lane by Michelle Griep.
The Continuing Adventure of Jackson and Kit!
Detective Jackson Forge can hardly wait to marry the street-sly swindler who’s turned his life upside down. Kit Turner is equally excited to wed the handsome detective, and what better way to show her love than providing him with a gift any man of the law would love? She determines to bring to justice the men who years ago maimed his brother—despite Jackson’s warning to leave the past in the past. As she digs into the mystery of what happened, she unwittingly tumbles into her own history and endangers her future happiness with Jackson.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from JustRead Tours and NetGalley. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with FTC guidelines.
The Bride of Blackfriars Lane, by Michelle Griep, is the continuing adventures of Kit and Jackson.
Kit and Jackson are a week away from their wedding and they cannot wait. Watching—reading—the chemistry between these two is so fun. Of course, considering those sparks, when things go wrong, things go horribly wrong!
There are several cases Kit and Jackson work on together as they navigate their own personal situation. This weaving of cases blends together so that it is more difficult to guess at which trouble is chasing Kit and Jackson at any given time. Overall, however, the cases take a backseat to the relational issues the pair must work through.
I loved the romantic conflict and could feel for both characters in the hurt they felt from one another. Not to mention the ending has me hoping for a third book continuing the adventures of Jackson and Kit! If you’re looking for a fun historical romance, then definitely grab yourself a copy of The Bride of Blackfriars Lane.

I haven’t read any of this author’s books, but this sounds intriguing! Have a great week!
They’re really good! And you, too!
Great review! I still need to read the first book, but it’s high on my TBR list. Hope you have a wonderful week! 🙂
Thank you! And you, too!
A rather ominous first line. As first lines should be.
I’m currently reading Authentically, Izzy by Pepper Basham. It’s super cute!
“In my psychology class we learned that the best way to deal with sensitive artistic personalities like Eli’s is to ask questions to help them come to their own conclusions. Directness may lead to internal wounds. Or was that about counseling teenagers? Oh well, I’m sure it works for both.”
Have a great weekend!!!
It sounds super cute! Enjoy your weekend!!
My first (few) lines come from ‘The Gift of Gracie’ by Amy Heyman.
“My name is Gracie B. Hubbard. The B is for Beatrice. I were born on September 6, 1950, so that makes me eleven years old. Jimmy’s my older brother. He’s fourteen. My mama an’ papa, me an’ Jimmy live in Backwater, Texas – leastways that’s what Papa calls it.”
That’s a fun beginning!
I have the first book but have not started this series yet. Have a wonderful weekend!
It’s a fun one! And you, too!
More Jackson and Kit! Bring it on!
My first line comes from Within These Gilded Halls by Abigail Wilson.
Southern England, 1819
Hunting the treasure without me?
A fascinating book!
That was my thought, too! 😀
I just finished Within These Gilded Halls – I hope you enjoy it, too!
