Ellie Moore is a women full of spunk and ingenuity. Having lost her job working as the personal assistant to an actress, Ellie happens upon a job opening with the Pinkerton Detective Agency. Her abilities to complete transform herself into someone else win over the reluctant agents. She travels to Arizona disguised as Lavina Stewart, a middle-aged widow to investigate missing shipments of silver from the local mines. Soon after arriving she realizes she must also create another persona. Lavina's spunky niece Jessie soon appears. Mine owner Steven Pierce soon becomes entangled in Ellie's two different characters and Ellie's own heart. When the thieves start to attack Lavina and Jessie, will Ellie be able to solve the case before they become successful? Or before she loses her heart to Steven?
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I loved the two completely different characters that Ellie makes for herself. They are each completely different, but at the same time also each make up a part of who Ellie is. This is a wonderful read and I highly recommend it to everyone looking for a good mystery to pack along on summer vacation.
