Recommends it for: whoever loves history, romance, mystery
I loved writing this book. it has romance, adventure, and of course, everyone loves a wedding. The question is: will this one happen? With two brides showing up to the event--one very much in love, and the other thought to have died in the 1900 Hurricane--the outcome is in doubt. Things get worse when people start dying. Is the troubled groom to blame?

The 1900 Galveston Hurricane was the worst natural disaster this nation ever faced with a death toll of approximately 8,000. In one night, the na

Book #2 Galveston Hurricane Mystery, Brides of the Storm by Amanda Albright Still

I am enjoying the antics of Dash and her "Mr Barker" as they stumble on and around the mystery lurking on Galveston Island after the big storm of 1900. It has been a year and yet the island still has work going on to rebuild the many homes that were destroyed. So many lives were lost they dont know the true number of them.

Dash has taken in two little girls that lost their parents and they are now "Her daughters" who

Shelves: print
In Echoes of the Storm, we met Dash Gallagher, a widow, law assistant, and strong-willed female who doesn’t back down to anyone – particularly, one Mr. L. Barker, a consulting detective who worked a case for her, kissed her, then left without a word.

With Brides of the Storm, Author Amanda Albright Still continues the further adventures of Dash. It’s been more than a year since the Galveston Hurricane devastated the island, and four months since Barker’s kiss. But Dash is carrying on, looking aft

This book is fun, exciting, and romantic. It makes me enjoy history and love Galveston. "Brides of the Storm" brings the horror of the 1900 Galveston Hurricane alive on the pages, but doesn't dwell. The story moves fast from adventure to adventure as Dash, a female attorney, and her mysterious Mr. Barker, a detective from Scotland solve a mystery.

This kept me guessing until the very end. I didn't guess the murderer until just when the book told me!

This book mixes history, adventure, and a cracking good mystery together. Galveston's history comes alive from the infamous Post Office Red Light District, the building of the original Pleasure Pier, and even the grade raising. A great book and I look forward to the next in the adventure.
