What I'm Reading ~ Weekend 7/13-15/12


Love in Disguise

Well, tomorrow I head home after a wonderful 2-week long adventure! I got to help drive cattle, put out hot spots at a wildfire burnsite (a.k.a. babysitting the fire to make sure it didn't blow up), and of course I read a ton, I even decided to join a Read the Bible in a Summer program, which as you can imagine with me starting late, will be quite...I will have to play catch up, but I am sure it will be beneficial non-the-less!

But onward!

Ok, so if you are like me you have probably heard buckets about Carol Cox's Love in Disguise, and since I didn't get it review I decided to check it out from my local library and read it anyway! And it started out running, and I just know that I am going to love it already!

Here's the blurb:
When costume-maker Ellie Moore suddenly finds herself out of a job in the middle of a bleak Chicago winter, 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 begins her investigation. Soon she finds 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 after the theft of several bullion shipments--until hope arrives in the unlikely form of Lavinia Stewart, who offers to invest in Steven's 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. But then 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?

Well, that's what I'm reading :)
Now it's your turn, what are you reading this weekend?

God Bless!

  4. I am looking forward to this one, I love the cover! I hope it is as good as we think it is!
    And right now I am reading A Sound Among the Trees by Meissner, but it is coinciding with another read along for The Queen's Vow by Gortner (awesome!) so I haven't been able to get to focus on it. I hope to catch up soon! Have a great weekend!
