A Blizzard Changes Everything

Abigail Bracey arrives in Nebraska in January 1888 to teach school…and to execute a task for the government: to identify a student as the hidden son of a murderous counterfeiter—the man who killed her father.

Agent Dashiell Lassiter doesn’t want his childhood sweetheart Abby on this dangerous job, especially when he learns the counterfeiter is now searching for his son, too, and he’ll destroy anyone in his way. Now Dash must follow Abby to Nebraska to protect her…if she’ll let him within two feet of her. She’s still angry he didn’t fight to marry her six years ago, and he never told her the real reason he left her.

All Dash wants is to protect Abby, but when a horrifying blizzard sweeps over them, can Abby and Dash set aside the pain from their pasts and work together to catch a counterfeiter and protect his son—if they survive the storm?

I believe that this is my favorite story of the whole series.
I loved that it is based on a true story with some fiction mixed in.
From page one the story just keeps getting better and better!!
Yes, we've all suffered hurts just like Abby and Dash, Maynard (whom I felt sorry for). For some at the hands of others and for some that brings it onto themselves through no fault of their own.
Redeeming Grace. What a sweet sweet words. The Lord God helps us through the most trying times doesn't He? Yes I know it isn't easy to ask myself included but asking for divine help isn't a shameful or embarrassing thing. It's what the Lord Jesus is there for.
All we need to do is ask.
Forgiving is hard. Very hard but if you don't do it it will eat you up and make you a bitter person. It's more for yourself than others.
I think the school children were my favorites. It sort of reminded me of Little Town on the Prairie and By the Shores of Silver Lake by Laura Ingalls Wilder (my most favorite series)! Where blizzards seemed to strike and last for days. I wonder if the West is still like that?
The author has described this scene so well I felt that I could actually hear the blizzard winds shrieking and howling. Not a pleasant sound.
I didn't want the book to end!
I loved the authors note at the end of the book. I learn so much from that excerpt. To me, it shows she's done her homework. I like that.
I will be looking for more from this author in the future.
My thanks to Netgalley for a copy of this book. NO compensations were received. All opinions are my own.
