Tide and Tempest by Elizabeth Ludwig

This book was provided in exchanged for my unbiased opinion.

Two years ago, her fiance perished during their voyage to America.

Now she discovers it may have been murder...

Tide and TempestDreaming of a better life, Tillie McGrath leaves Ireland behind and, with her beloved fiance by her side, sets sail for America. But when illness robs her of the man she holds dear, she's left alone with only a handful of tattered memories. While forging on proves difficult, Tillie soon finds some new friends at her New York boardinghouse, and begins pursuing a new dream--to open a home for orphaned children.

Despite two years passing, Captain Keondric Morgan has never forgotten the lass who left his ship so heartbroken. When a crewman's deathbed confession reveals her fiance's demise was the result of murder, the captain knows he must try to contact her. But his attention draws the notice of others as well--dangerous men who believe Tillie has in her possession something that could expose their crimes. And to their way of thinking, the best way to prevent such an outcome is to seize the evidence and then hand Tillie the same fate as her naïve fiance.

I received this book from Bethany House Blogger program in exchange for my honest opinion. I am not required to give a positive review. 

My Thoughts:
This book is an exciting addition to the Edge of Freedom series. It is the third book in the series but can be read alone; as each book contains a main cast but focuses on a particular character.  In this particular book, all of which begin based at a boarding house in New York and mostly contain Irish/American history. Tillie, who came from Ireland quite a while back now find herself in a dangerous situation, she is quite unaware of at first. Most of the books revolve around a highly powerful character, "The Celt", and a political group known as the Fenians.  Some freedom issues from Ireland are now being fought subtly in New York.  So if you love a good historical fiction, romantic, mystery - You are sure to enjoy this book. The author does not disappoint and I can't wait to see what else she has up her sleeve.
