Award-winning author Rhys Bowen marries charming storytelling with an edge-of-your-seat mystery set in early twentieth-century New York City in BLESS THE BRIDE
With Molly Murphy's wedding to NYPD Captain Daniel Sullivan quickly approaching, the Irish P.I. heads to the Westchester County countryside, where Daniel's mother can counsel her on a bride's proper place. Surprisingly, Molly seems to be agreeing with her future mother-in-law's advice. Molly promises to leave her detective work behind and settle down after becoming Daniel's wife…but she isn't married yet. So when she gets word of a possible case, Molly sneaks back into the city to squeeze in a little more sleuthing before the wedding bells can ring.
"Molly's compassion and pluck should attract more readers to this consistently solid historical series."--Publishers Weekly
A wealthy Chinese immigrant wants Molly to find his missing bride. Molly has a hunch that his intended has run off. But where could she have gone--and where would she be? The only Chinese women of the era are kept under house arrest, and Molly can't help but wonder whether she's saving the bride-to-be from the streets…or helping to lock her away for good.
"New York [is] evocatively recreated…a colorful series."--Chicago Tribune--This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.
