About the Book
The Wilderness Is a Great Place to Hide
Jacqueline Rivers manages a Pony Express station in 1860 Utah territory after her father’s death. There are daily stresses placed on her in this unconventional role—and now a government official is asking her to sniff out counterfeiters. When Elijah Johnson passes through on the stage while on an exhausting quest to find his boss’s heir, he doesn’t want to leave the beguiling station manager. In fact, he may never leave when caught in the crossfire of the territory’s criminal activities. Jackie can’t decide if Elijah is friend or foe. Can she remain strong when secrets of the past and present are finally unearthed?
Join the adventure as the Daughters of the Mayflower series continues with The Express Bride by Kimberley Woodhouse.

In My Opinion
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 book stands on its own.
Kimberley Woodhouse delves into a lesser known (and short) area of American history in this book. If you haven’t guessed by the title and description, it’s set at a Pony Express home station. Woodhouse’s descriptions of the station and the riders coming in and out, the small family they’ve formed out in the middle of the wilderness, along with the mystery of the treasury bonds and the suspense of when she will discover the truth of her parentage made this another favorite of mine in the series.
The characters are well developed and immediately become friends to the readers. Plus, Woodhouse doesn’t shy away from saturating this book with some spiritual truths. Fascinating and educational while romantic and entertaining, The Express Bride is a book you won’t regret diving into.
