Michelle Griep
Author Michelle Griep was born in Minneapolis. She says she hears voices, which are loud and incessant and extremely real. It gave her two options: write fiction or take a bunch of Prozac. She chose to write fiction, as it is way cheaper.

She has been writing since she discovered blank wall space and Crayolas. She seeks to glorify God in everything she writes, except for the graffiti phase she went through in her teenage years.

Michelle writes the “Once Upon a Dickens Christmas” and the “Bow Street Runners” series, as well as some stand alone novels. She writes romance and inspirational work. Her debut novel, called “Gallimore”, was released in the year 2008.

“12 Days at Bleakly Manor” is the first novel in the “Once Upon a Dickens Christmas” series and was released in the year 2017. This novel stars Clara Chapman and Benjamin Lane. A mysterious invitation to spend Christmas at an English manor home could bring both love and danger? England in the year 1851. Clara Chapman gets an intriguing invite to spend Christmas at an English manor home, and she is reluctant but feels compelled to go. If she should remain there for the entire twelve day celebration, she is promised a large sum of a thousand pounds.

Is she stepping right into danger? It looks like it, particularly when she is face to face with one of the guests, Benjamin Lane, her ex-fiance. Ben, who was imprisoned unjustly, wants to get revenge on those that took his honor. When he is given his chance to get his freedom, he pounced on it, and gets faced with the woman he stood up at the altar’s anger. Brought together under some mysterious circumstances, both Ben and Clara find that what they have been wanting is not what ultimately matters.

What matters the most is what Christmas is really all about. Love.

This book was a lot of fun and readers enjoyed how things all tie together by the end, including the whys and hows of it all. There is excellent atmosphere in the old-country-house and of a Golden Age mystery. Overall, this is simply a fun read to curl up with around the Christmas season.

“Brentwood’s Ward” is the first novel in the “Bow Street Runners” series and was released in the year 2015. This novel stars Emily Payne and Nicholas Brentwood. Place a rough lawman by the name of Nicholas Brentwood as the guardian over a pompous and spoiled beauty named Emily Payne. What do you get? A lot more trouble than Brentwood bargained for.

She is determined to find a man to marry her. He just wants the huge fee her dad is going to pay him in order to help out his ailing sister. After some dire mishaps, both of their desires are thwarted, but each finds that no matter what, God is the one really in charge.

The twists in the novel work rather well, and are not what readers expect to happen. The novel is beautifully written, and is recommended for fans of romantic historical fiction. Readers liked both Emily and Nicholas, and found that Emily has quite a bit of growth in the novel. The way Nicholas deals with Emily and her antics, and how his feelings for her change while the story moves along.

“The Innkeeper’s Daughter” is the second novel in the “Bow Street Runners” series and was released in the year 2018. This novel stars Alexander Moore and Johanna Langley. A London officer goes undercover in order to expose a plot against the Crown.

The year is 1808 in Dover, England. Officer Alexander Moore goes undercover, posing as a gambling gentleman in order to expose a high-stakes plot against the king. He is a master of disguise, because Johanna Langley believes he is quite the rogue. Until she is no longer able to fight his unrelenting charm.

All Johanna really wants is to keep the family’s inn afloat, but the rent and hearth payment come due at the exact same time. Where is she going to find the extra money for that? Should she be unable to come up with the money, the only place left for her to go would be the workhouse, where she is going to separated from her ten year old brother and her sick mom.

Alex really wants to help Johanna out, particularly when she confides in him, however, his mission (locating and bringing to justice a traitor to the crown) has to come first. Or everybody could end up dead.

“The Noble Guardian” is the third novel in the “Bow Street Runners” series and was released in the year 2019. The novel stars Abigail Gilbert and Samuel Thatcher. Things couldn’t be any better for Abigail Gilbert, but it has really been a long time coming for her. Finally her time has come for love, after she has lived with a family who hated her. Abby goes on a journey across England to marry one of the prestigious gentlemen in all the land. That ends when highwaymen upset her plans and threaten her life.

Samuel Thatcher, horse patrol captain, shows up in time to save Abby. She is just another victim in a job he has come to despise. He intends to buy some land and retire, after growing tired of the dark side of humanity.

Abby pleads with him to escort her for what is left of her journey. He refuses, before she offers him something that he desperately needs to achieve his main objective. Money. Delivering her safely is going to give him more than enough to buy some property.

Thus starts an impossible journey for the proper lady and the cynical lawman. They both will be indelibly altered by the time they get to her betrothed, should they not kill each other first, or fall in love.

Fans of this romantic tale enjoyed all the fantastic characters and every bit of action in it. Readers found themselves reading this one as quickly as they could, as they fell in love the story right from the start.
