Review: As Dawn Breaks by Kate Breslin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Amid the Great War in 1918 England, munitions worker Rosalind Graham is desperate to escape the arranged marriage being forced on her by her ruthless guardian and instead follow her own course. When the Chilwell factory explodes, killing hundreds of unidentified workers, Rose realizes the world believes she perished in the disaster. Seizing the chance to escape, she risks all and assumes a new identity, taking a supervisory position in Gretna, Scotland, as Miss Tilly Lockhart.

RAF Captain Alex Baird is returning home to Gretna on a secret mission to uncover the saboteur suspected in the Chilwell explosion, as Gretna's factory is likely next. Fearing for his family's safety, he's also haunted by guilt after failing to protect his brother. Alex is surprised to discover a young woman, Miss Lockhart, renting his boyhood room, but the two eventually bond over their mutual affection for his family--until Alex receives orders to surveil her.

Rose squirms beneath Alex's scrutiny while she struggles to gain her workers' respect. But when her deception turns to danger, she and Alex must find a way to put their painful pasts behind them and together try to safeguard the future.

My Review: 

As Dawn Breaks is another fabulous book by Kate Breslin. It is giving me yet another reason why she is among my favorite authors. I always eagerly await for her new releases and this one worth definitely worth the wait. I enjoyed going back in time to the United Kingdom during the first world war. I adored Rose / Tilly right from the start. There is a little suspense and mystery involved that kept me even more intrigued and wanted to keep reading until I read the last page.
As Dawn Breaks is getting a very well deserved five plus stars from me. I highly recommend it for readers who enjoy reading clean historical romance. As always, I will be looking for more Kate Breslin’s releases in the future. I loved this one.

I received a paperback copy of As Dawn Breaks from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
