Gunpowder Tea - A Review
Miranda Hunt, a Pinkerton detective, goes undercover as an heiress at the Last Chance Ranch in the hopes of bringing to justice the elusive Phantom. What she doesn't expect is to come to really care for the ranch owner and the ranch hands. Yet, she's determined to bring about justice and see her career be established as a Pinkerton. Everyone is a suspect. There's the new, mysterious hand, Jeremy Taggert, who not only is mysterious and intriguing, but sparks fly between the two whenever they happen to cross paths. There is more to him than meets the eye as well. He's also an undercover agent - a Wells Fargo one to be specific. Yet when they are forced to work together, neither can deny the attraction they feel for the other. But will the elusive Phantom ruin their plans for a happily ever after?
This is the third and final book in the Brides of Last Chance Ranch Series. I really enjoyed this one. I found the first to be a little slow moving at times, but this one kept me entertained through the entire story. I found both Miranda and (name) to be delightful. I think my favorite of the supporting cast of characters was the woman who was operating the telephones. She cracked me up with how she determined whether or not a person was spending too much time on the phones! Overall, I'd have to say that this particular book was my favorite of the series.
I received this book for free from Thomas Nelson's Booksneeze program for the purpose of reviewing. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
