GUNPOWDER Tea, The Brides of Last Chance Ranch by MARGARET BROWNLEY ~ Litfuse Group Tour & Giveaway

About the book:

In a case that could change her career, Miranda uncovers a love that will change her life.
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.
Meet Author:
Thrills, mystery, suspense, romance: Margaret penned it all. Nothing wrong with this--except Margaret happened to be writing for the church newsletter at the time. After making the church picnic read like a Grisham novel, her former pastor took her aside and said, "Maybe God's calling you to write fiction." So that's what Margaret did. She's now a New York Times bestselling author and a Romance Writers of America RITA finalist with more than 25 novels to her credit. Her first non-fiction book "Grieving God's Way: the Lasting Path to Hope and Healing" has won much critical acclaim. She is currently working on the third book in her "Brides of Last Chance Ranch series." Not bad for someone who flunked 8th grade English. Just don't ask her to diagram a sentence.

My Thoughts:

Miranda Hunt's dream has come true, she has been assigned to the case of the Phantom an elusive robber. He is suspected to be in the vicinity of the Last Chance Ranch.  Miranda will be undercover as Annie Beckman.  Her boss at Pinkerton Detective Agency applied to an advertisement for heiress to the Last Chance Ranch.  She is to report to the local Marshal and to make sure her true identity is kept secret from everyone else.

She has the misfortune of crossing paths with Jeremy Taggart a member of Phantom Gang  But unbeknownst to Miranda he is actually a Wells Fargo detective, undercover as a member of the Phantom gang.  He suspects she is part of the Phantom gang and she saw him with train robbers from the Phantom gang.  He ends up hiding out at the Last Chance Ranch as a hired hand.  

Despite their suspensions of each other they find an attraction to each other and fear if they let their feelings known it could hinder their investigation and capture of the Phantom.  What an eye opener when their true identity is revealed!

The author has created a strong willed feisty woman as the next heiress of the Last Chance Ranch. This book over the others in this series has more of a twist which kept me entertained.  The author has a good sense of humor and uses it throughout the book to temper the rough characteristics of Miss Walker and the other characters. 

I highly recommend this book.

I rated this book a 5 out of 5.  

Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book from Thomas Nelson/Litfuse Publicity Group for review. I was in no way compensated for this review. This review is my honest opinion.
