Gunpowder Tea

Book Description:  "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."
My review:  I really enjoyed the other "Last Chance" books by this author, but this one just wasn't as good.  I did enjoy it, it was just a bit of a let-down after reading the other ones.  The circumstances Miranda found herself in were just not very realistic.  I know this is fiction, but some things were just a little too far-fetched even for a book.  It did make the story pretty humorous, though.  Jeremy exasperated me and seemed a little unreal as well.  The mystery did keep me guessing, and I was not able to figure it out.  That alone would have kept me turning pages.  It was a quick easy read.  I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from Thomas Nelson Publishers through their Booksneeze Blogger program in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.
