Can she solve the crime before they uncover her true identity?
Jobless and down to her last dime, Ellie Moore hears about a position with the Pinkerton Detective Agency and believes it's the perfect chance to put her acting skills and costumes to use. Reluctantly, the agency agrees to give her one assignment, one chance to prove herself. Disguised as Lavinia Stewart, a middle-aged widow, Ellie travels to Arizona to begin her investigation. When the need arises, she also transforms into the dazzling Jessie Monroe, whose vivacious personality encourages people to talk.
Mine owner Steven Pierce is going to lose his business if he can't figure out who's stealing his silver shipments. In his wildest dreams, he never expected to receive help from a gray-haired widow... or to fall in love with her beautiful niece.
Then the thieves come after Lavinia and Jessie. Ellie isn't safe no matter which character she plays! Should she give up and reveal her true identity? What will Steven do when he realizes the woman he's falling in love with doesn't really exist?
Set in 1880s Arizona, Love in Disguise blends romance, humor, and mystery for a can't-put-down read.

1880's Arizona comes to life in this delightful read, Love In Disguise, from author Carol Cox. I absolutely loved the descriptions of the geographical areas, the clothing and the era itself. As I read, I was able to see each page come to life in my mind, and I could not put this book down. It was that good. The storylines were great, and I fell in love with the characters from page one until the very last words.
With both mystery and romance, as well as a few twists and turns along the way, the ending will surprise you (don't worry, no spoilers here). I look forward to reading the next book from Carol Cox.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
