Litfuse Book Tour: Gunpowder Tea by Margaret Brownley
by Margaret Brownley
Thomas Nelson Pubishers:
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 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.
After having read more than my fair share of lackluster books this past summer, I've been in need of a pick me up in the form of a book that's good, clean fun! Margaret Brownley's Gunpowder Tea really hit the spot. With a style that reminds of comedic master, Mary Connealy combined with Julie Lessman-like talent for penning romance that sizzles, Brownley delivers.
Apparently, I've been missing out on quite the adventure having not read the first two installments in the series. Eleanor Walker, the ornery owner of Last Chance Ranch is a hoot. Seeing her clash with just about anyone with two legs, is one of the many highlights of the story. I will definitely be reading Dawn Comes Early and Waiting for Morning just for more of her antics. Of course, the hero and heroine are pretty fun characters as well. Miranda Hunt and Jeremy Taggart have to be two of the most stubborn people I've come across in a romance novel. It's guaranteed that interesting things to say the least, happen when they meet up which is often since they live on the same ranch.
While Gunpowder Tea is a real humdinger of a Western romance, there's also some suspense. It's a given that there's going to be some sort of mystery and intrigue and while it doesn't disappoint, it's not a perfect story. There were a few details that were slightly unbelievable, especially since both Miranda and Jeremy were professionally trained detectives, but all in all it is still worth reading. Gunpowder Tea is definitely a book to reach for it you want to grab something fun and fast-paced!

Thrills, mystery, suspense, romance: Margaret penned it all. Nothing wrong with this--except Margaret happened to be writing for the church newsletter at the time. After making the church picnic read like a Grisham novel, her former pastor took her aside and said, "Maybe God's calling you to write fiction." So that's what Margaret did. She's now a New York Times bestselling author and a Romance Writers of America RITA finalist with more than 25 novels to her credit. Her first non-fiction book "Grieving God's Way: the Lasting Path to Hope and Healing" has won much critical acclaim. She is currently working on the third book in her "Brides of Last Chance Ranch series." Not bad for someone who flunked 8th grade English. Just don't ask her to diagram a sentence.
