The Pirate Bride (The Daughters of the Mayflower #2)


Title:  The Pirate Bride (The Daughters of the Mayflower #2)

Author:  Kathleen Y’Barbo

Pages:  256

Year:  2018

Publisher:  Barbour

My rating 5+ out of 5 stars.

What a fun story to read!  I sat and read it in one night and thoroughly enjoyed myself.  There is mystery and danger, intrigue and drama; yet, there are some parts of the story that are just comical.  Maribel is a young girl who wants to be a privateer.  As she reads about these men in books, the sense of adventure just speaks to her heart.  Maribel is a character who bucks what is expected of her or even the mold others want to place her in.

Maribel experiences many different and dangerous moments she didn’t sign up for, but she is determined nonetheless.  She is raised in a convent and becomes a teacher, but there is still a part of her that longs to escape into a book without being bothered.  What I laughed about was the place she chooses to read her books and how others react to her choice!

Towards the end of the story the author throws a twist in the plot that really made my heart race and I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough!  Here is one book I know I will read again and enjoy at some time in the future.  Until then, I plan on telling others about the series as well as encouraging people to get the book for their own personal libraries!  So, ahoy mateys, grab a copy and come aboard for an adventure you won’t regret it!

Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received one or more of the product for free from Barbour even though a review was not required.

This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
