Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 Murphys wedding to NYPD Captain Daniel Sullivan quickly approaching, the Irish P.I. heads to the Westchester County countryside, where Daniels mother can counsel her on a brides proper place. Surprisingly, Molly seems to be agreeing with her future mother-in-laws advice. Molly promises to leave her detective work behind and settle down after becoming Daniels wife…but she isnt 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.

“Mollys 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 cant help but wonder whether shes 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
