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.

What a fun read! This book is full of humorous characters and although the widow who Miranda/Annue works for is quite cantankerous, you can't help but love her.
I think this is the first book I've read that has had a woman as a Pinkerton which made it fun, Annie isn't always the most graceful at her job, especially since she begins the book by shooting a dead man in his coffin....and that's just the start!
You wouldn't think that trying to capture bank and train robbers would be an entertaining read, but that's exactly what this book is and I enjoyed every minute of it!
