"A woman without secrets is like a rose without fragrance."


Annie Beckman, aka Miranda Hunt, is a Pinkerton detective, seeking to prove that she is as good as any man.  In fact, she can get in places that some of her male counterparts can't - like acting as the newest heiress for Last Chance Ranch.  In search for a criminal mastermind behind train robberies, Miranda might just be over her head in the wilds of Arizona Territory.  Especially when it comes to the attractive, and possibly criminal, ranch-hand Branch.  Branch, aka Jeremy Taggert, however, is a Wells Fargo Agent also looking for the Phantom.  He has no intention of letting the likes of Annie distract him from his job, though intentions are only that.  As things heat up between them, they just might be able to find a way to work together.  That is, if they can trust each other with the truth.

My Opinion: It seems that I have, once again, read a book at the end of a series.  Though it's a credit to the author that I didn't really figure that out until about half-way through the book, and didn't feel like I was missing too much except the back story on a few side characters.  This was a great story of mystery and romance.  Miranda and Jeremy have great chemistry and work together wonderfully.  Though I felt the pacing had a few problems - long stretches with sudden plot changes - it was a good story and pulled you into the mystery and conflicted romance.  The whole town, side characters, main characters, and atmosphere worked together to pull you back in time so you felt like you could actually taste the dust in your mouth and smell the afternoon tea brewing.  Overall a nice story and a series I'd like to go back and read in its entirety.

I received a free copy of this book to review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and review are 100% my own.
