    This book is part of the series, Galveston Hurricane Mystery Series, but it is also a stand-alone mystery novel. The novel takes place after the hurricane disaster in 1900. The series is narrated by Dash, a female attorney, who helps solve murder crimes with a Scottish private-detective, Barker. The novel starts off with Dash's friend, Winnie, who is getting ready to marry Abelard, a wealthy anatomy professor. However, Abelard's wife that was believed to be dead from the hurricane suddenly comes This book is part of the series, Galveston Hurricane Mystery Series, but it is also a stand-alone mystery novel. The novel takes place after the hurricane disaster in 1900. The series is narrated by Dash, a female attorney, who helps solve murder crimes with a Scottish private-detective, Barker. The novel starts off with Dash's friend, Winnie, who is getting ready to marry Abelard, a wealthy anatomy professor. However, Abelard's wife that was believed to be dead from the hurricane suddenly comes back to reclaim Abelard as her husband. Meanwhile, Dash and Barker have discovered the gruesome murder of a prostitute. Could these two events somehow be connected? I found the setting of Galveston to be an interesting idea for a mystery series. The Galveston hurricane was the deadliest hurricane in American history that caused a lot of deaths and destruction in the city. Because of the chaos, it is a great feast for the setup of these murder mysteries. The author, Still, does a great job in portraying how the devastation of the hurricane impacted her characters and the setting. Dash is emotionally-damaged from the storm because it killed her husband and her neighbors. In the novel, other characters have also lost someone precious to them, and each of them tries their best to rebuild their lives again, but the ghost of the storm still haunts their everyday lives. Dash is a likable heroine. She is compassionate, selfless, and spirited. She is a moralist, and sometimes can be judgmental, outspoken, and stubborn, when something contradicts with her morals. She is very loving and motherly to her adopted daughters and tries her best to accepted by her girls, who still long for their real mother. Dash is also highly intelligent, which is why she and Barker make a great team. Both are them highly observant, intelligent, and evenly-matched. They help each other and make observances that sometimes the other does not see. They both need each other to help solve the crime. Overall, this novel was a fun fast-paced thriller. There are thrills at every turn, and the reader will find it hard to put this novel down. The novel is filled with suspense, romance, paranormal, and humor. The dialogue is witty, and the setting and characters are well-developed. In fact, this novel left me waiting for more. I liked this book so much that immediately after I finished it, I bought the kindle version of the first novel, Echoes of the Storm (Book 1 of the Galveston Hurricane Mystery Series). I am looking forward to reading it and the other forthcoming novels in this series. Brides of the storm will appeal to fans of Sherlock Holmes, Agatha Christie, Monk, and anyone who loves mystery. (Note: This book was given to me by the author in exchange of an honest review.)

    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 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 have her heart. I think Mr Barker is a little in awe of that... He claims he does not know women but they sure seem to have their eye on him. He seems to always know what to do in a situation and "Dash" follows along feeling safe and secure. This book tells of the wealthy Wingates, or are they? Winnie is getting ready to wed when the first Mrs returns, one all considered dead after the storm and no word of her for the past year... You won't want to miss finding out what she did and where she was, another mystery to solve. Adventure, romance, history, this book tells a wonderful story... I am anxious to see book #3

    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 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 after her two newly adopted daughters (left orphaned by the storm) and readying for the wedding of her best friend, Lucinda, whose fiancé’s wife was also taken by the hurricane. But in an odd twist, the dead wife has now returned…just days before her husband is to remarry. Hmmm…Something smells fishy, and it ain’t Galveston Bay. To help her friend, Dash swallows her pride and solicits the help of Barker, in spite of his arrogant ways. She’s put her own feelings aside to uncover the mystery of the recently returned wife. But before she can get Barker to commit, he’s called in on the murder case of a prostitute who’d just arrived in town – on the same day the dead wife has returned. Coincident? Brides of the Storm, is a fast paced murder mystery filled with twists, turns, and sexual tension. The author has a talent for setting the mood and involving the reader in the plot. I found Brides to be an intriguing read. And the sleuth in me couldn’t help but turn the page.

    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 is fun, exciting, and romantic. It makes me enjoy history and love Galveston.

    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. This book mixes history, adventure, and a cracking good mystery together.
