Gunpowder Tea Book Review

I have a really fun western style book to share with you called Gunpowder Tea written by Margaret Brownley.
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.
You know, back in those days, it was very rare to find a women as a Pinkerton Detective. So, this was a fascinating story told in a way that I am sure a lot of women back in that time would have loved to have really seen themselves.

Miranda has her hands full with trying to catch the Phantom. He even robs her train while she is on her way to the town where she will be working undercover to try and catch him and his gang. Of course, she gets another surprise when she runs into a really cute guy with blue eyes from the Wells Fargo Agency, also working undercover to catch the same gang.

They make a cute couple and even better partners when they team up together to bring down the Phantom gang! Sparks are definitely flying all over the place.

Happy Reading!
