The Bootlegger's Bride by M.K. Chester #Audio #Review

The Bootlegger's Bride

(Bryeton Books #2)

Aiden Palmer, a disenchanted WWI veteran, has gone from golden boy to troublemaker since his return from Europe. Hopping from job to job, looking for meaning and adventure, he finds himself running with a rowdy new crowd that puts pressure on him to join their illegal bootlegging runs. On the night the 18th Amendment goes into affect, he reconnects with a love from his past, Grace Currie, at a Prohibition Ball. 
Grace McAfee Currie is a teenaged war widow. On the night the Volstead Act becomes law, she searches for Aiden Palmer, the man she’d wanted to marry three years ago. Convincing him that she still loves him is no easy task. Will they be able to outmaneuver her power-hungry brother and outrun the competition and start a new life together?
I really enjoyed this audiobook. Short stories sometimes leave you feeling like you want more but this one actually fits perfectly. Grace is from a family where finding love is less important than finding the right role in society. She’s always been in love with Aiden. Now her circumstances have changed Grace wants her happily ever after even if the cost is high. Set in the 1920s this is a story of escape. The narrator fits great and I enjoyed every minute. Highly recommended.

ARC in exchange for an honest review.
