The Innkeeper’s Daughter by Michelle Griep is a great getaway read that I enjoyed. The story takes place in Dover, England in 1808 and centers around Johanna Langley and Alexander Moore. Johanna with her mother and little brother are owners of an inn. Unfortunately they have fallen on hard times and are very close to losing the inn. Throughout the novel Johanna does all she can think to do to run the inn while trying to somehow earn the needed money to keep from losing it. Alex is an officer sent to Dover to uncover a traitor to the Crown. Mystery, danger, deception, suspense and surprises all happen as we follow these two characters and the people in their lives.
The Innkeeper’s Daughter has many great characters and I liked them all but my favorite character to follow was Alex. The story is told from the perspective of Johanna and Alex and whenever the story was following Alex I couldn’t put the book down. Exciting things were always happening! I was surprised to like Alex but he was funny and flawed and didn’t seem overly perfect and unrelatable. Both characters recognized their flaws and tried to overcome them.
I was ready for a light easy to read story but that also would hook me and The Innkeeper’s Daughter did just that.
My copy of The Innkeeper’s Daughter was provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thanks!
