Undercover Bride by Margaret Brownley
Publisher: Barbour Books
Series: Undercover Ladies(Book 2)
Goodreads Summary: 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 Arizona Territory 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! 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?
What I liked: I have read a few books about Pinkerton detectives and they are quite enjoyable and this book does not disappoint. Maggie has done her research yet she is caught off guard by Garrett. She finds herself drawn to him and his kids as well as his crazy aunt. I loved all the characters. The supporting characters such as Aunt Hetty and Maggie’s partner Rikker(and all his funny crazy disguises) made this a well-rounded and fun book to read.
What I didn’t like: Not much to complain about in this book.
This book did a great job of mixing romance and suspense. This is the 2nd book in the series but very much stands alone and I’m to read the last book in the series when it’s released.
