About the book:When Miranda Hunt sees the classified ad for an heiress to the legendary Last Chance Ranch, she knows assuming the identity of Annie Beckman is the perfect cover. As one of the finest agents for the Pinkerton Detective Agency, Miranda has been tasked with apprehending the Phantom – an elusive and notorious train robber thought to be hiding on the sprawling ranch.
But she isn't the only one at the ranch with something to hide. Wells Fargo detective Jeremy Taggart is working undercover as well. Their true identities may be a secret, but it is impossible for Jeremy and Miranda to hide the sparks flaring between them.
Neither is about to let romance interfere with such a huge case. Besides, Miranda hasn't removed Jeremy from her list of suspects yet. The closer they get to uncovering the identity of the Phantom, the more dangerous he gets – and no one on the ranch is safe.
The longer Miranda and Jeremy spend working together, the harder it becomes to keep their feelings in check. Their careers – and their lives – depend on solving this case. Love will just have to wait.
“... an absolute delight. I spent the whole book reading with a grin on my face.” ~ Mary Connealy Best-Selling Author of Petticoat Ranch (for Dawn Comes Early)
My thoughts:I agree with Mary Connealy. This book is filled with humor from start to finish. Loved it! Take one Miranda Hunt aka Annie Beckman, Pinkerton Detective Agent and a little old cantankerous lady looking for an heiress for her ranch, add a gang of robbers that the local sheriff can't find and you end up with a fun afternoon (or early morning) read that you can't put down.
I believe this is the last book in the series The Brides of Last Chance Ranch. I'd love to see a detective series with Miranda & Jeremy. It would be a fun series and Ms Brownley could easily take serious cases (robbery, murder, mysteries, etc) and make them very interesting. She could easily take actual crimes from the 1800's and do her own spin with them.
This book includes a recipe for Gunpowder Tea Bread, a short chapter on Gunpowder Tea and what it was used for and also a couple pages of discussion questions. If you are part of a book group this one should be one everyone enjoys. It's a true delight and should be at the top of your reading pile!
