Author: Kimberley Woodhouse
I received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
This was an enjoyable, light, easy read that I finished so fast! The pace was constant and the banter enjoyable. While predictable, it was still an enjoyable experience.
The Patriot Bride is set during the colonial era in the year of 1752. We start by following 10-year-old Faith Lytton, who happens to be friends with none other than George Washington himself.
Fast forward to 1774, when Faith Lytton Jackson is all grown up and a widow. Managing a ladies’ group, she is asked by her dear friend, George, to assist with a dangerous mission. While partaking in this task, Faith meets George Weber, a spy for the Patriots who has infiltrated the Loyalists. Faith has been tasked with coding letters and delivering them in the name of the Patriots.
Anthony James is in hot pursuit of Faith and her inheritance. After stalking Faith and finding her with George, he is determined to get even with Faith. George Weber, mentee of Benjamin Franklin, is imprisoned by the Patriots for “working for the Loyalists”. Faith and two of her loyal employees, work to help George escape, but they are too late.
What happened to George Weber? Is there something growing between George and Faith beyond a work relationship? What trouble lies ahead if they’re not too careful? What is Anthony Jameson really after in his pursuits of Faith?
