"Gunpowder Tea" by Margaret Brownley

The "Phantom," an infamous train robber, may be hiding on Last Chance Ranch. Two agents, unknown to each other, find a way onto the ranch to capture him. Will either Miranda Hunt or Jeremy Taggart uncover the Phantom? Will they learn to trust each other?

Miranda works for the Pinkerton Detective Agency, and she is one of their best agents. She wants to apprehend the "Phantom" more than anything, and when she discovers that he may be hiding on the Last Chance Ranch, she knows she has to find a way in. Luckily, she sees an ad that opens that door for her. Meanwhile, Jeremy is an undercover Wells Fargo agent looking for the same person Miranda is. When they meet, sparks of many types fly. Neither knows who the other really is, and don't trust easily. But, there are also romantic thoughts occupying their minds. Will either of them uncover the Phantom? Will they learn to trust each other and work together? Will they fall in love? In her third book of "The Brides of the Last Chance Ranch" series, Margaret Brownley answers these questions and much more.

Margaret Brownley truly knows how to weave a wonderfully entertaining story. With characters and scenarios that come alive, her books are not easy to put down. If you like a little mystery, a little romance, and a lot of good story telling, this book is for you. I received my review copy from Litfuse Publishing in exchange for honest participation in the blog tour.

Book Info

About the book: 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.

"In the exquisitely intriguing finale to her Brides of Last Chance Ranch trilogy, Brownley blends faith and romance with a dash of mystery to serve up a cozy, fulfilling story set in the Arizona Territory of the 1890s . . . .This enchanting account of the hardships and wonders of the Old West features many delightful characters. The story stands on its own merits, independent of the first two in the series, drawing readers into a world that is difficult to leave."

Meet the author: Thrills, mystery, suspense, romance: Margaret penned it all. Nothing wrong with this---except Margaret happened to be writing for the church newsletter at the time. After making the church picnic read like a Grisham novel, her former pastor took her aside and said, "Maybe God's calling you to write fiction." So that's what Margaret did. She's now a New York Times bestselling author and a Romance Writers of America RITA finalist with more than 25 novels to her credit. Her first non-fiction book Grieving God's Way: the Lasting Path to Hope and Healing has won much critical acclaim. She is currently working on the third book in her Brides of Last Chance Ranch series. Not bad for someone who flunked 8th grade English. Just don't ask her to diagram a sentence.
