Books from the Backlog ~ 9/19/19

Books from the Backlog hosted by Carole's Random Life in Books is a fun way to feature some of those neglected books sitting on your bookshelf unread.  If you are anything like me, you might be surprised by some of the unread books hiding in your stacks.
This week's neglected book is:

Gunpowder Tea by Margaret Brownley
Series: The Brides of Last Chance Ranch Book #3
Publication Date:     October 15, 2013
Publisher: Thomas Nelson

In a case that could change her career, Miranda uncovers a love that will change her life.

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 there with something to hide. Wells Fargo detective Jeremy Taggert is working the scene undercover as well. And although their true identities are a secret, it is impossible for Jeremy and Miranda to hide the spark that flares between them.

But 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 come to uncovering the identity of the Phantom, the more dangerous he gets – and no one on the ranch is safe.

But neither are their hearts – the longer Miranda and Jeremy spends working together, the harder it becomes to keep their feelings in check. Their careers – and their lives – depend on solving this case. Love will have to wait.
Why did I add Gunpowder Tea to my bookshelf?:
I would have to check but I think I've read the first two books of this series already. When I saw "Gunpowder Tea" at Ollie's for $3.99 I grabbed it!  I really love undercover stories and even better when it is the woman who is undercover!
What are your thoughts? Have you read this book?  Would you recommend it to others?


P.S. I'd love for you to come join the Fall Into Reading Challenge!


  1. Oh cool! This one is on my wish list. I think the title caught my eye and then the undercover detective work. Hope you love it, Colletta!

  2. I believe I might like this book so I will probably add it to my list of need to find books.

  3. This sounds like fun! I seem to enjoy books where the characters assume a secret identity. I hope you enjoy it, Colletta!

  4. You had me at Pinkerton. This sounds like it will be good. I hope you like it when you read it.
