This is a very good book. it was exciting, especially at the end when good meets evil and you wonder how it will turn out. but it had a happy ending, which i always love.

This seemed to be a good read but it did not keep my interest. Never did finish the book before I passed it on!

Ordered it because I had read the previous 2 books and thoroughly enjoyed them. As the description says--if you like history, mystery and romance this is a book for you. An easy read.

This is absolutely one of the best books that I have ever read in my entire life so far. A Bride So Fair by Carol Cox is the first work of Carol Cox's that I have had the privilege to read, but I'm excited now about finding more from her. First off, of the edition that I have, I love the cover of the girl looking off in the distance holding the quilt, it is just beautiful! The other cover edition I've seen, with the main characters standing there, well it's okay, but not as fabulous as this one with the purple. This story was so hard to put down. I have a lot to read, so I figured I'd start this one and get through a couple chapters if I could. Well, next thing I knew I was half way through and unwilling to stop. Then I'm at the part where my heart is beating so fast I can hardly contain myself and I have no idea what is going to happen or how things can be fixed, and then my husband gets home... *sigh* So, I had to stop make his dinner, eat mine, and then I'm back on the couch reading as fast as my eyes will let me and my mind is comprehending. Then I realize I'm going too fast and have to re-read a couple of passages, but then I have my good rate back. *sigh* Such a fabulous story! There is a mix of romance, and intrigue, and pure suspense. This story is unlike anything that I have read, but at the same time there are smidgens of little things that make my mind tangent off to something else I once loved. Such as: Anne of Green Gables the Continuing Story, much of Anne I see in Emily, and of course Dominique in Adam. Then there is a hint of the fast paced "Oh my goodness, he is so evil! What can possibly happen?!?!" that I felt from Tracie Peterson's Yukon Quest series. If you want romance, it's here. History, got it. Mystery, oh definitely with plenty of cozy suspense. Really, I cannot urge you to read this book enough. DO IT!

A Bride So Fair by Carol Cox is an incredibly written romantic suspense novel. I love the play on words in the title Emily is not only beautiful, she works at a fair. At the 1893 Worlds Fair in Chicago, Emily works in the childrens building to care for those too young to accompany their parents during the day. Stephen is a Columbian Guard who just met her and cant get her out of his mind. Young Adam has been abandoned by his mother at the fair, and is brought to Emily at the child care facility by Stephen. Then the tangled web of intrigue begins to unfold.It only took a few pages for me to really engage these characters. I am so impressed with Carol Coxs elegant writing. Her eloquence takes the reader back to the time period of more civilized days gone by. Her humor and vivid description make the novel sparkle! Tiny details of the time period add depth to this beautifully written suspenseful romance! Emily is a strong, yet feminine heroine and Stephen is a compellingly dashing leading man.
