Debbie C.5 Stars Out Of 5A nice, clean read.January 18, 2019Debbie C.Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I believe this is the first book I have read by this author and I really liked the story. I found it entertaining and intriguing. I don't know much about the Adirondacks or the Pinkertons, so I did learn a little about both.
Elsie Mitchell is a school teacher on a short vacation in Albany, New York and is on her way back home in the Adirondacks of New York. She meets our hero, William Benton, an undercover Pinkerton agent, at the train station when her luggage is overturned and he tries to assist her with picking up her unmentionables. Then when she gets home to Heartston, she is told the owner of the local lumber company needs to see her immediately and William is also summoned. Once there, the lumber company owner, Mr. Oliver, who is also William's new boss, offers Elsie the the job of caring for William's orphaned niece and nephew in addition to her teaching job. Because Elsie feels sorry for the children and could use the extra money for the adventures she wishes to have away from home someday, she takes the job.
This means Elsie will move into Mr. Oliver's grandmother's abandoned house and live with William and his niece and nephew, in the separate quarters off the kitchen. Soon William and Elsie begin to get closer, but William seems to be a bit secretive about his whereabouts most days and nights. What does he do away from home when not working at the lumberyard? Why does he frequent the saloon if he is not a drinker and doesn't avail himself of the "ladies" company? Can Elsie and William work things out and make it work or is their budding relationship doomed to failure?
If you enjoy a good, clean, historical romance with intrigue, you will like this book. I know I do and will read more by Tracey Lyons. Enjoy!
I won this book through the Christian Fiction Summer Reading Safari Contest and am leaving this review as my honest opinion.
Lori5 Stars Out Of 5Review for A Changed AgentSeptember 15, 2016LoriQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a story of change, family, and faith.
I love seeing Will slowly start to change . He wasn't a family man until Elsie and the children came along. I laughed in some places, and I loved Elsie for her determination to change Will into what he ought to be instead if who he actually is.
Elsie doesn't know that he's a Pinkerton agarnt hired to help find the railroad bonds that came up missing! !
Elsie is afraid to trust after what Virgil did to her. She doesn't want to give into Will for fear of breaking her heart again in case he up and took off again. Through God's plan she learns to start trusting and she forgave Virgil for what he done to her.
I enjoyed that there were children in the story.
They were what helped change Elsie and will see things as they are supposed to be.
Oh and I figured out won stole the bonds but I won't say!! You won't believe who it is!!
Tracey I loved this novel! It was a page Turner and I enjoyed very much!
