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?
Undercover Bride's unique story line about a woman Pinkerton agent, is what captured my interest at first. The great suspense, Christian romance, history, and humor though is what kept me reading page after page.
The story was told with some great characters, including Garrett, poor old Aunt Hetty, Riker, and Little Linc. My favorite character throughout the book was Maggie, the woman Pinkerton agent. Maggie won me over with her constant faith in God and her willingness to find the truth.
Af first I would have told you that the ending was just too a bit too predictable. Margaret Brownley proved me wrong by throwing in some twist and turns, that I would have never imagined.
This book was given to me by Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
