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?
