From the beginning of the book to the end, I did not want to put it down. I was very intrigued by the characters and knew there were lots of interesting backstories waiting to be revealed to the reader. All was not what it appeared to be. Esp ...more
Although this book is one of the most historically accurate books I’ve read, I had a lot of trouble connecting with the characters and the plot felt kinda loose to me. 🤷🏼♀ ...more
I loved all the elements in this book! A hardworking innkeeper, a British spy, smugglers, gamblers, musicians, puppets... the unique details made it stand out from others with a similar theme. Johanna's circumstances are desperate, and she keeps coming up with ideas to bring in more funds, only to find that when her plans fail, the Lord has things in hand. The spiritual message is to trust God even when there seems to be no hope left- especially then. Both Johanna and Alex find themselves in sit ...more
Plots are afoot, as are nefarious smugglers and crafty, highly placed traitors in Michelle Griep's new Regency era novel, The Innkeeper's Daughter. Ordered to "ferret out" the traitor, Bow Street officer Alexander Moore is sent undercover as the gambling rogue Alex Morton and ordered to reside at the Blue Hedge Inn, perhaps the most run-down of respectable inns in Dover. Much to his chagrin, he learns that he will have to share a bed with one Mister Lucius Nutbrown. But to his delight, he finds ...more
Well you could probably knock me down with a feather right now. You see I am always willing to try a new to me author for the first time. After all with the odds 50-50 I'll like them it's worth the effort to me. I've tried this author in novella form before but a full book no, not until now!
Michelle,I need to read more of your books! I have my new favorite author right here!
I am so impressed with the scenes in this book that I swear I was there seeing,hearing,tasting, all of my senses came aliv ...more
This author, I have a love- hate relationship with.Sometimes I love her books sometimes I don't. I don't get it. This one was entertaining and had a good story line. The leading lady and her very low self esteem and a belief that God tortured her and it got old. She went so far as to say that God held her sin of lying against her and it was just as bad as the guy who whips people who work for him! What the crazy, in what world is our God so awful that he doesn't see the gravity of each sin and s ...more

Dover, England - 1808
Romance, history, intrigue and espionage … a book by Michelle Griep is simply not to be missed, and reading The Innkeeper’s Daughter is sheer delight. Griep does British settings, my favorite sub-genre, so very well. Along with romantic suspense, I always learn something new from the historical detail and delightful humor adds to the charm. Without going into detail, there’s a historic gem that gave me new insight into a l ...more
"There is nothing more - nor less - than trusting God. Therein surrender, and you will find rest."
Innkeeper Johanna Langley is bone tired; tired of trying to make ends meet, tired of chasing down her errant brother, tired of carrying the burden of her family's livelihood on her young shoulders. The old dilapidated Blue Hedge Inn stands just one payment shy of foreclosure, which would send all three members of her family to the poorhouse, when Joanna literally falls into the arms of an handsome ...more
