    I really liked how the book came together. It was an array of mystery, romance, and thriller. I felt that the book was almost slow in the beginning, but that happens when you are learning the characters and almost too quick at the ending. Without spoilers I cannot give specifics, but i...

    This is among my favorites of the Daughters of the Mayflower series for several reasons. First, I knew very little about the Pony Express and learned so much from the novel. For some reason, I thought the Pony Express existed for many years when, in fact, it only lasted 19 months. Seco...

    The Express Bride is the ninth installment of the Mayflower series, written by Kimberley Woodhouse. I can?t believe we?re at nine already! They are all standalones so you don?t need to read other books in other to enjoy this one. And can I just mention how GORGEOUS this cover ...

    I believe I?ve read all of the Daughters of the Mayflower series (so far) and this one is one of my favorites. I love when a story teaches me something new, and prior to reading The Express Bride, I knew very little about the Pony Express. And how fascinating! I?d never really thou...

    4.5 Stars The Express Bride is book nine in the Daughters of the Mayflower series. If you?re only just hearing about the series, first, where have you been? And second, know that you can read these books in any order. They are tied together by the lineage of the women, but each bo...

    What a wonderful book! It is written in such a way that you can see all the scenery and action that is taking place. This is a christian historical romance that is full of action, mystery and suspense. This is the first fiction book I've read about the Pony Express and really enjoyed i...

    Character Round-Up Barbour has a great concept with The Daughters of the Mayflower series. Covering some of America?s most auspicious historical events, the characters all descend from two Mayflower passengers, and yet each story stands alone so that they can be read in any order. Ad...

    I'm continuing to love the Daughters of the Mayflower Series! The journey through history and stunning covers have won me over. In the Express Bride, readers are exposed to the Pony Express and what life was like for those that ran stations and rode circuits. This was all fascinatin...

    This is the 9th novel in the multi-author Daughters of the Mayflower series and 4th by Kimberley Woodhouse, and this is the best so far! The author gives us a wise young protagonist who is mourning the recent death of her father. The setting is Utah Territory in 1860. There is more tha...

    One of my favorite eras in history, full of adventure, coupled with a little mystery and a sweet romance, made this an all around satisfying read! The Pony Express and Stagecoach stop at Carson Sink in 1860, Utah Territory, was right near the heart of the silver mining area and the U.S...

    Historical fiction is one of my favorite genres and I love when they take place in the unsettled West. Add in an independent woman and men willing to protect her if needed and you have a story that I can become engrossed in and enjoy from start to finish. The Express Bride was everythi...

    I enjoyed reading this latest story in the daughters of the Mayflower collection. Set in Utah during the height of the Pony Express, we are invited to a front-row seat to the running of a Pony Express stop. The story is fast-paced, with an air of mystery and a sweet, slow blooming roma...

    I liked the pacing in this book. Although foreshadowing made it easy to guess ahead to some of the outcomes, the story carried on with the world-building and the introduction and development of new characters as they came onto the scene. More "historical fiction" that includes a romanc...

    What do you think of when you hear the words Pony Express? When I do I think of it as being larger than life. I do believe there are many misconceptions surrounding the Pony Express. I could not believe it only ran for roughly nineteen months. It does seem like it was so much longer th...

    What I've come to love and enjoy about Kimberley Woodhouse's books is that they are filled with adventure and characters that has a personal journey with God. The express bride was another great read by this author and this series. So, if you still have to start this series, you lov...

    I have really enjoyed all of the books in the Daughters of the Mayflower series. They are all different but they are all well written and tied together by ancestry. In The Express Bride, you are immediately drawn into a woman fleeing an abusive home with her baby. Years later that ...

    This book was easily 4.5 stars, which I will round up to 5 just because I liked it that much. It was so reminiscent of the 1990's show Young Riders with Cody, Hickock, Lou, Ike, Kid, Buck, and of course the always patriarchal Teaspoon, which was about the Pony Express. Loved that show,...

    The Express Bride is the 9th book in the Daughters of Mayflower series. Although I have not read all of the stories, the ones that I have read were truly wonderful. In this story, we have a woman on the run from her abusive husband and in order to protect her child, she has no recourse...

    This book brought me such joy reading it. The characters were so wonderful and I feel in love with all of them. I have to say my favorite character was Ann who was deceased in the book but her legacy was so big and touched so many people in this story. This story was phenomenal, showin...

    I honestly do not have the words to describe how much I love this series! I am a huge historical fiction fan, but I will admit that I fall into the habit of reading books from the same specific time periods. I'm not complaining about this, but I appreciate this series because it takes ...

    The 9th installment of the Daughters of the Mayflower series, the "The Express Bride" is well-written and has given me a greater understanding of how the Pony Express actually operated. What a difficult undertaking that must have been. While the underlying plot concerns Elijah's search...
