Cox does a wonderful job of combining historical details, romance, and suspense.Review by Library Journal
Out of a job, Ellie Moore decides to put her theater training to use as a detective with the Pinkerton Agency. Her first case brings her to Pickford, AZ, where she must pose as a middle-aged widow named Lavinia in order to discover who has been stealing silver from Steven Pierce's mine. Lavinia doesn't inspire the locals to talk, however, and soon Ellie is also pretending to be Lavinia's lively niece, Jessie Monroe. Confusion ensues when Steve finds himself falling in love with Jessie, and the thieves go after both Jessie and Lavinia. VERDICT Cox does a wonderful job of combining historical details, romance, and suspense. Though Cox's latest has moments of humor, it will still appeal to fans of Dee Henderson for the suspense aspect.
