Inside the Grey

Inside the Grey by [Bobbi Groover]

Inside the Grey by Bobbi Groover is a historical romance novel set at the beginning of the Civil War. Brayden Wakefield is a Southern landowner in Virginia. He’s been grieving the loss of his wife for the past two years, but when he receives word that his neighbor, Caleb Jenkins has been taken by Union raiders, Brayden sets off with a group of other men to rescue their friend. Along the way, Brayden meets a women named Kawley Chatterton. Disguised as a man, she has been trailing to the same raiders, who have also captured her brother, Riley. Kawley is determined to save Riley–with or without the help of Brayden and the others. Can Brayden and Kawley succeed in rescuing the two men and returning home?

Author Bobbi Groover provides a riveting western novel that kept my interest through the entire book and I enjoyed reading it. It was filled with adventure and intrigue and history. At the beginning of the story, I felt as uncertain as Brayden about Kawley’s true motives and her past, not knowing if what she said was the truth or lies. She had a feisty attitude and I wanted to like her, but didn’t know if I should because of the possibility that she might end up betraying Brayden. As the story progressed, I liked the interactions between Kawley and Brayden as they rode together, and how they helped each other–not just in their aim to rescue Caleb and Riley, but also with the demons from their past. They shared several moments of dark humor to lighten the grimness of their task. I liked the link between the book’s title and Brayden’s journal (with a grey cover) that he always carried with him and wrote in often.

The ending was a Happy For Now, rather than Happily Ever After, which I much appreciated, but I would have liked to see what happened to Brayden and Kawley after the end of the war; maybe in a follow-up novel.

Inside the Grey is an emotionally charged historical romance novel that takes readers through a detailed world filled with intriguing characters and unexpected twists.
