Petticoat Detective by Margaret Brownley - Review of the first book in the Undercover Ladies series

(copied from
Pinkerton detective Jennifer Layne is no stranger to undercover work. But posing as a lady companion named Amy at Miss Lillian's Parlor House and boots is a first for her. She's finally landed a high-profile case and is on the trail of the notorious Gunnysack Bandit, when one of Miss Lillian's girls essential to her investigation meets an untimely demise. Only a handful of people are in the house at the time of her death, including handsome Tom Colton, a former Texas Ranger determined to clear his brother's name. Amy has many reasons to suspect Tom of murder--and one very personal reason to hope that she's wrong about him.

I have read some of Margaret's books before and enjoyed them, this one did not fail to entertain me as well. Also I have read other books involving the Pinkerton detectives which I really liked, again, this was another one that I really liked. There is some mystery, some giggles (like throwing of shoes in place of shooting), faith and some love. I would highly recommend this book as I continue on to read the next book in the series, "Undercover Bride".
