With Molly Murphy´s wedding to NYPD Captain Daniel Sullivan quickly approaching, the Irish sleuth heads to the Westchester County countryside, where his mother can lend her a hand and advise her on a bride´s proper place. And shockingly, Molly seems to be agreeing. She has already promised that she´ll close up her PI business and settle down after marrying, but she isn´t a married woman yet. So, when she gets word of a possible case, she sneaks back into the city to squeeze in a little more sleuthing before the wedding bells can ring.
A wealthy Chinese immigrant wants her to find his missing bride, and Molly - sure she isn´t getting the whole story - suspects that his bride ran off. But where could she go? The only Chinese women in early-twentieth-century New York are kept under lock and key, and Molly can´t help but wonder if she´s saving the woman from the streets or helping to lock her away for good.
Rhys Bowen´s deft touch and charming wit make Bless the Bride another stellar addition to her Anthony and Agatha award-winning historical series.
