Good Book

Sent undercover to investigate a string of robberies, Ellie finds herself more and more drawn to mine owner, Steven Pierce. With danger trailing her, will Ellie be able to true love and solve the crime???
This well-written book had a mystery that actually kept me guessing which was nice. Quite enjoyable and sweet, this novel is worth a read.

Lots of Fun, Mystery and Romance
5 stars By Margot, Apr 08 2014
This book was so much fun - what a great idea, to have a female 'detective' (Ellie) pose as two different characters to solve a case involving silver thefts in Arizona. The switches between conservative middle-aged Lavinia and thoroughly modern Jessie are smooth, but I love that we keep in touch with how Ellie thinks and feels. The humour is mostly funny because we know the truth, and it's great to have the 'inside scoop' and be able to laugh because we know more that they do. The hero, Steven. is adorable, and makes fast friends with Lavinia well before becoming infatuated with Jessie. The ending is very satisfying, making the whole book and all-round great read.
