Undercover Bride

By Margaret Brownley


Pinkerton detective Maggie Cartwright has no intention of walking down the aisle. . . .

But her current case has Maggie posing as a mail-order bride for widower Garrett Thomas, the prime suspect in the Whistle-Stop Bandit robbery.

No sooner does Maggie arrive in Arizona Territory when she’s confronted by his meddlesome aunt who insists the two set an early wedding date. With the clock
ticking, Maggie sets to work to uncover the truth.

Maggie is nothing like the woman widower Garrett expected from her letters. But he’s immediately smitten with the blue-eyed beauty and feels the need to protect her, not only from his aunt’s critical eye, but also from the ugliness of his past.

As the day of the wedding draws near, Maggie begins to panic. The investigation may be progressing, but the real problem is that the more she gets to know Garrett and his two charming 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? Or has the possibility of a home, family, and a handsome husband blinded Maggie from seeing the truth?

Book Takeaway:

Taking the wrong path in life and having to start over. Going back to the beginning. This theme plays out through the heroine's determination to help the paperboy Linc, whom she fears is on the wrong path and will one day end up as one of Pinkerton's most wanted. This theme relates to the Bible verse chosen for the book:
Where there is no counsel, the people fall; But in the multitude of counselors there is safety. Proverbs 11:14 NKJV

Why the author wrote this book:

I've always loved mail order bride stories. The idea of having my female Pinkerton detective work undercover as a mail order bride was too intriguing to pass up.
