Title: UNDERCOVER BRIDE
Author: Margaret Brownley
Genre: Historical romantic suspense
Series: Undercover Ladies book 2
Pinkerton detective Maggie Cartwright is tasked with going undercover as a mail order bride. Her “fiancé” is widower Garrett Thomas, aka the suspected Whistle-Stop Bandit.
No sooner does Maggie arrive in
when she’s confronted with an
early wedding date—the clock is ticking on her detective work or she may end up
a criminal’s wife! Arizona Territory
As the day of the wedding draws near, Maggie begins to panic. The problem is that the more she gets to know Garrett and his two adorable children, the harder it is to keep up the deception.
Can a man as kind and gentle as Garrett really be the Whistle-Stop Bandit?
I picked up UNDERCOVER BRIDE one evening when I wanted to read just a little before I went to bed. I didn’t read just a little! I was caught up instantly in the story and couldn’t put it down. I couldn’t help but fall in love with the characters in the story and identifying them. I laughed about the church miracle, and everyone knows somebody like Aunt Hettie.
Even though UNDERCOVER BRIDE is the second book in the series, it easily stands alone. Fans will want to read Petticoat Detective though, just so they don’t miss a single one of Ms. Brownley’s books. She is one of my favorite historical authors.
Fans of Ms. Brownley will enjoy reading this story. I am looking forward to reading the third book in this series later this year. Recommended to fans of historical romance or historical romantic suspense.
5 stars. Available in ebook, hardcover, and paperback. 320 pages.
I received this book from the author via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
