    This book is an adventure from beginning to end. Romance should be for true love. Sometimes this is overlooked by the elite.

    Flora kept losing her intended before she could wed them. So people were calling her Fatal Flora.

    A Pinkerton Agent arrests Flora for trying to arrest her intended. He gets more than he bargains for. He finds himself falling for her.

    Yet out of all the bad circumstances, good happens. A miracle takes place for Flora's sister, Violet.

    Lucas, the Agent, had been shot and all Flora's dreams were dying. But in the end Flora's wife comes true.

    Flora's Wish is the highly entertaining tale of an unconventional Southern belle. Flora aka Fatal Flora has lost four fiancés, and is now engaged to her fifth. Lucas McMinn, Pinkerton agent/inventor believes Flora has assisted her fiancé in a robbery and stays close on her tail, hoping she will lead him to thief, Will Tucker.

    The chemistry between Lucas and Flora is delicious, and it's fun to watch her challenge him constantly and to watch their relationship grow over the course of the story. Although I don't often read books about high society folk, I thoroughly enjoyed Flora's Wish.

    Kathleen Y'Barbo starts off her new series, "The Secret Lives of Will Tucker," with a delightful romp up and down the Mississippi in her novel "Flora's Wish." Suffering from an errant fiancé whose job supposedly keeps interfering with the wedding plans, Fatal Flora (of the now five fiancés, assuming she can keep this one alive, unlike the previous four) finds herself an object of intense suspicion by Lucas McMinn, a Pinkerton agent out to capture the conman Will Tucker - Flora's current fiancé. Under Lucas' custody and practically shackled to the man, Flora and the agent pursue Will Tucker from Natchez to New Orleans and back, one to prove his innocence, the other to prove his guilt.

    Flora really comes up with a doozy of a plan to save her family home from passing on to an irresponsible relative. Since she has to marry and produce an heir before her cousin turns thirty, she is in rather dire straits, given that she has had four fiancés perish before reaching the altar. In order to make it happen, she makes a contract with a man whom she scarcely knows and plans to spring the marriage on her family fait accompli. Thankfully for her, God has a significantly better plan, even if she has to be arrested, jailed, and basically held captive first to work it out. While her love of her family is commendable - and she's performing this mad scheme for them, not herself - not even they approve of the lengths to which she goes to preserve their lives for them. Her predicament is also typical of following one's own plans and not God's - a complete mess.

    "Flora's Wish" is a delightfully humorous tale and a cute love story. Flora and Lucas have a great many sparring matches, playing off each other really well and sparking great entertainment for the reader. The secondary characters are as fun as the main - Grandmamma is a spectacular lady (quite possibly my favorite character), and even the hotel staff have personality. I look forward to the installment of Will Tucker's schemes.

    I gave this book 5/5 stars. I thoroughly enjoyed the main characters of Flora and Lucas. From the beginning you can tell there will be great chemistry between them. I thought Flora was written as a strong and smart woman who was likable. Lucas was written very well as the detective who fights his feelings for her and has very strong opinions of his own. Overall this book had great characters and good conversations. The events were believable and the story flowed from one scene to the next. I would recommend this book for anyone looking for an adventure filled Christian fiction book to read and enjoy.

    I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.

    I've enjoyed Kathleen Y'Barbo's books for years. This one didn't disappoint me. If Flora Brimm doesn't quickly marry and produce an heir, the family estate goes to a cousin of questionable character. After burying four fiances, Flora has concocted a near perfect plan to marry Will Tucker. Until Lucas McMinn foils her plans by insisting Tucker is a lying thief, and Flora is his accomplice. Flora vows to prove Lucas wrong. Lucas vows to bring a scoundrel to justice. Flora and Lucas's unwilling alliance makes for a wonderful story with plenty of interesting twists and turns.

    Thanks to Harvest House for this free book. I'm happy to give one of my favorite authors a positive review.
