"Love in Disguise" by Carol Cox
Aspiring actress Ellie Moore is having a rough run. Thinking she's on her way to stardom, she suddenly finds herself out of a job, alone, and nearly broke. When a little bit of eavesdropping leads to the an opportunity to go undercover with the world famous Pinkerton Detective Agency, she jumps at it. Embarking on the adventure of a lifetime, Ellie invents two opposite characters to aid in her investigation of the silver mine thefts: an aging Lavinia, and her vivacious niece Jessie. Soon enough, the man of her dreams starts falling for her alter ego, and the thieves turn their attention to getting rid of her. Will Ellie ever have the chance to reveal who she really is so they can live happily ever after?
With charming characters, mystery, and enough plot twists to keep you reading into the night, this book will delight you and have you rooting for Ellie every step of the way. This book was unlike any I've read, with the main character playing three characters! I would have liked a bit more background on Steven, and more storyline between him and Ellie actually as Ellie, but all in all, I enjoyed this adventure in the Wild West!
4/5 stars. Recommended.
