A Mysterious Identity

Adventurous Ellie Moore finds herself  jobless in the midst of a Chicago winter. In dire need of a way to support herself, she applies for a job with the Pinkerton Detective Agency. Although she has no previous detective skills, the company in a bit of a bind to find a woman agent agrees to hire her on a trial basis.
Ellie travels off to Arizona disguised as an older widowed woman Lavinia. During the process of her investigation she is forced to alter her disguise to also accommodate Lavinia's young and vibrant niece Jesse Monroe. She becomes very fond of Steven Pierce the mine owner whose silver is being stolen. Playing two parts becomes a bit tricky and she is no longer safe from the silver thieves. What should she do?  Does she reveal her true identity, and if so is it too late for love?

I really enjoyed this book. It was not easy to figure out who was stealing the silver. And although kind of obvious from the beginning that the mine owner would fall in love with her, it keeps you on your toes with mystery as to how it will all come about.  The fact that Ellie played two characters certainly kept the story interesting. This book is Christian fiction.  Ellie is drawn closer to the Lord after having been distanced from Him for some time. And mine owner Steve spends time talking to God about his financial problems, honesty, and the woman he has come to care about.
