Bridge of Gold by Kimberley Woodhouse {book review}

FTC Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book. These are my honest thoughts.

This book was pretty wonderful. There were buckets of things to adore about it and only a couple of reasons why I docked a single star.

Mrs. Woodhouse has improved so much in her writing. I’m growing fonder and fonder of her stories as time goes on, and this book is a prime example of why. It’s a time-slip story that features a murder mystery that revolved around the discovery of a ship buried beneath the streets of San Francisco, California. While it might not all be factual (I hope the murders didn’t actually happen!), I was intrigued to learn that there really were ships that were sunk and used as landfill to expand the growing city of San Francisco during and directly after that California Gold Rush. So neat! It was great to see Mrs. Woodhouse expanding her abilities by dipping into the time-slip genre. She’s long been growing as a historical author, but now she’s added the dual-timeline style to her repertoire.

"Follow by E-mail" Discontinued -- But Stay Tuned!

Blogger is run by Google, and the powers that be at Google have decided to discontinue the "follow by e-mail" widget that allows readers like you to follow bloggers like me. It will be disappearing sometime this summer.

I know, I know. It's horrible. Devastating, even. Now my articles won't go directly to your inbox.


Don't worry; I'm working on a solution. In the meantime, please pause right now to bookmark my blog. That way, you'll be able to navigate back here without the aid of the e-mails that will no longer be coming your way.
