The Bride of Blackfriars Lane (Paperback)
The Continuing Adventure of Jackson and Kit!
Detective Jackson Forge can hardly wait to marry the street-sly swindler who’s turned his life upside down. Kit Turner is equally excited to wed the handsome detective, and what better way to show her love than providing him with a gift any man of the law would love? She determines to bring to justice the men who years ago maimed his brother—despite Jackson’s warning to leave the past in the past. As she digs into the mystery of what happened, she unwittingly tumbles into her own history and endangers her future happiness with Jackson.

—Mimi Matthews, USA Today bestselling author of The Siren of Sussex
Witty and adventurous, this is Griep at her best! The banter between the main characters has continued in this second installment of the Blackfriars Lane series, but the stakes are higher and the danger greater. I kept flipping pages late into the night, desperate for the resolution, yet wondering, as the danger mounted, how the characters could possibly pull it off. A top storyteller brings readers a clever, suspenseful, thoroughly engrossing adventure of a book.
—Joanna Davidson Politano, author of A Midnight Dance and other historical mysteries
Kip and Jackson are up to their old shenanigans in The Bride of Blackfriars Lane, only this time, the price they pay for risking it all may be their love! I almost couldn’t keep up with the action packed into this book. I was never so happy to keep turning pages. Could NOT put this one down!
—Elizabeth Ludwig, USA Today bestselling author and speaker
Michelle Griep has done it again! Hold on to your bowlers for a rip-roaring adventure from the first page to the last. Between Kit and Jackson, there is enough wit, grit, and charm to keep readers dashing through alleys, rag piles, Reptiliums, docks, and more right alongside this explosive duo. And yet behind the action, depth of character and timeless insight anchor The Bride of Blackfriars Lane firmly in the heart.
—Jocelyn Green, Christy Award-winning author of Drawn by the Current
With heart-pounding suspense, and a dash of romance, Michelle Griep once again dazzles with The Bride of Blackfriars Lane. Not only did Jackson and Kit pull me into their heart-pounding adventure, they taught me the power of trusting and unknown past to an all-powerful God.
—Tara Johnson, author of All Through the Night, Where Dandelions Bloom, and Engraved on the Heart
Griep has launched herself to the top of my favorite authors list! This adventurous tale had me grinning, on the edge-of-my-seat, and yelling at the characters as I stayed up entirely too late because I simply couldn't put it down. Murder, Mystery, and Marriage all play out beautifully by the deft pen of Michelle Griep. I will eagerly await her next book, but until then Kit and Jackson's enchanting story will stick with me for a long time.
—Kimberley Woodhouse, bestselling and award-winning author of A Deep Divide, Ever Constant, Bridge of Gold, and many others.

Will either of them make it to the church on time? As usual, Griep does not disappoint!
