When costume-maker Ellie Moore suddenly finds herself out of a job, she uses her knowledge of theatrical disguise to secure a position as an undercover operative with the Pinkerton Detective Agency. Her assignment: find the culprit behind the theft of silver shipped from the mines near Pickford, Arizona. Disguised as Lavinia Stewart, a middle-aged widow, Ellie soon finds that she must also pose as the dazzling young Jessie Monroe, whose vivacious personality encourages people to talk. Mine owner Steven Pierce is about to lose his business because of the thefts until hope arrives in the unlikely form of Lavinia Stewart, who offers to invest in his mine. In his wildest dreams, Steven never expected to be rescued by an inquisitive gray-haired widow . . . or to fall head over heels for Lavinia's captivating niece, Jessie. When the thieves come after both Lavinia and Jessie, Ellie isn't safe no matter which character she plays! Will she be forced to reveal her true identity before the criminals are caught? What will Steven do when he discovers the woman he loves doesn't exist?

At first, it seemed like I wasn't going to enjoy this as much as I thought I would, but by the second chapter, I was hooked.
Any theater people will relate to Ellie in a way that I think makes this book really special.

I was so glad to find an historical romance with a different twist. Ellie Moore is desperate for a job. When she inveigles her way in to an assignment as a Pinkerton agent, the fun begins. As Ellie struggles to establish her disguises and complete her assignment successfully, she begins to wonder where her own personality and looks fit into the world. There are quite a few very humorous situations with a light touch of serious issues. I'm glad I discovered this book.
