Love in Disguise

Love in Disguise by Carol Cox is the story of Ellie Moore.  Ellie has been the faithful assistant to a famous actress in Chicago, but finds herself suddenly without a job and without options.  Luckily Ellie stumbles upon a position with the Pinkerton Detective Agency and is whisked away to sunny Arizona.  Ellie is supposed to play a small role in the investigation of the silver thefts, but is left high and dry by her partner.  Ellie is forced to pretend to be two different people, solve the mystery of the silver thefts on her own and protect her heart from mine owner Steven Pierce.  Ellie is about to play the role of a life time! 
I read a lot of historical fiction and sometimes it feels that I am reading the same storyline over and over again with just different names.  This book was so refreshingly different!   I loved the mystery, secret identities, and the blooming romance between Jessie, A.K.A Ellie and Steven.  The character development was superb and I especially loved Amos Crawford.  I could not peg the villain in this one until he was exposed in the very end.  This was a very fun read!
