Gunpowder Tea by Margaret Brownley ~ Litfuse Blog Tour with review and giveaway

Gunpowder TeaIn 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 take on this book:
As a fan of fun historical romance I have enjoyed each book in The Brides of Last Chance series and hate to see it come to an end. I really think out of the series "Gunpowder Tea" was my favorite book!  This book hooked me with the  first chapter, because it set the tone for the entire book. I found myself laughing out loud. The plot grabbed my imagination and wouldn't let go! Miranda Hunt was a unique character for the time period, not because her mother was an Indian and her father was white but because she was an agent for The Pinkerton Agency, and honestly I don't think I ever remember reading a story where a female was a part of The Pinkertons!  The relationship between Miranda and Jeremy was quite interesting. Both were hiding their identity so neither really knew who the other one was, but that didn't stop the feelings from developing! Anyone who enjoys a good historical western read, that gives more than a few laughs, a mystery along with a fast paced page turning plot will enjoy this one. While it is the third and final book in The Brides of Last Chance series it can easily be read as a stand alone story, but take it from me this entire series is well worth reading!

Margaret BrownleyAbout 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.

Margaret Brownley‘s latest release, Gunpowder Tea, is receiving high praise! Publisher’s Weekly had this to say: “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.”
