Fiction Friday: The Golden Bride
The Gold Rush of 1849 never felt so real.
The Mayflower Brides series started out with, well, the Mayflower, duh. But it’s been moseying through time and is now up to the Gold Rush of 1849 in The Golden Bride. Here’s a blurb:
Can Olivia survive the crime and Gold Rush fever of 1849...and the countless marriage proposals?
Olivia Brighton finds herself widowed and working her brother’s restaurant in San Francisco during the height of the rush for gold. Even though she receives at least twenty marriage proposals a day, she will never marry a gold miner. Her brother’s friend Joseph Sawyer has gotten caught up in local politics and the plight of Chinese in forced labor. The more Joseph gets pulled into investigating crime in the city, the less Olivia sees of the compassionate man. And just when she thinks she could love again, a fire threatens to steal all hope.
