This was a very enjoyable story to read. It truly was a blend of romance, suspense and history as the back cover of the book states. Ellie Moore finds herself jobless, when she hears about a job with the Pinkerton Detective Agency. She needs to prove to the Pinkerton Agency that she can do the job (and to herself that she really can act) by disguising herself as a middle aged widow in a town where silver shipments are being stolen and no one knows who is involved. Steven Pierce is one of the mine owners who needs to find answers before he goes broke from all the robberies. He befriends the gray-haired widow, who is really Ellie, but starts to fall in love with her mysterious and beautiful niece (who is also played by Ellie). It gets quite complicated for Ellie at times, but she is determined to find the thieves.

The story line was quite interesting and the mystery of who was behind all the stealing wasn't fully figured out by me until the very end. I liked the mystery and the romance, but especially liked the character Ellie. It was a well written book and I want to thank LibraryThing for sending me the book for review.
