    1. About this book:“Pinkerton detective Maggie Cartwright is tasked with going undercover as a mail order bride. Her “fiancé” is widower Garrett Thomas, aka the suspected Whistle-Stop Bandit. No sooner does Maggie arrive in Arizona Territory when she's confronted with an early wedding date—the clock is ticking on her detective work or she may end up a criminal's wife! As the day of the wedding draws near, Maggie begins to panic. The problem is that the more she gets to know Garrett and his [...]

    2. I love Ms. Brownley's westerns, I always feel like I've stepped back into time. She creates an inviting atmosphere that doesn't feel like a history lesson, yet I always learn something new. I especially like learning about the Pinkerton Detective Agency, I read about them while in college, but its really brought to life in this series, in a fun way. Maggie is a private investigator and has been assigned to find concrete evidence that Garrett Thomas was the one to rob a train of seventy-five thou [...]

    3. This was a really fun read! Some of the names were a bit silly & made me kinda roll my eyes every time I read them (such as: Dr. Coldwell & a seamstress named Mrs. Button), but that didn't bother me. I liked the characters and the storyline, it's quite good and enjoyable. I had no problem finishing it in a single day-- of course, I didn't have much else to do, really but still. ;PFinished this at about 2:00 this morning Oh, how nice it is to not have to get up early after a late night of [...]

    4. Undercover Bride was a fun read! I liked how the main character was a Pinkerton agent and that she was undercover as a mail-order bride! SO interesting and fun! I really enjoyed the mystery and the romance was sweet. All in all, just a great read. I recommend it and am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.*I received a complimentary eBook copy via NetGalley for my honest review.*

    5. If you like westerns, detective novels, romantic stories, and books that will make you laugh out loud, then you need to read Undercover Bride without further delay!This second book in Margaret Brownley’s Undercover Ladies series is jam-packed with the perfect amount of suspense, history, humor, and of course romance. It is perfectly fine as a stand-alone; in fact, you can read the books in any order as they are really only connected by theme rather than by characters. And while we’re on the [...]

    6. Sent to find solid proof to convict Garrett of theft and murder, Maggie finds it difficult to reconcile the information in her files with the man she gets to know. Unaware of her hidden agenda, Garrett simply wants a wife and mother for his children — even though he never expects to love another woman again.Humor, mystery, tenderness — Undercover Bride has it all. While it was not a nail-biting suspense, I did not want to set it down! I enjoyed uncovering clues with Maggie as I watched her r [...]

    7. I freely admit that I love to read Historical Fiction involving mail order brides. Now I think I might have a definite liking for tales of Pinkerton detectives as well, especially female Pinkerton detectives.Undercover Bride involves both. Maggie Taylor is a Pinkerton operative, undercover as a mail order bride for a suspected "Whistle Stop Bandit," Garrett Thomas. Maggie doesn't make the best first impression on arriving, and the hotel is somehow full, so she stays in Garrett's home despite his [...]

    8. When I started the book, I was certain that Garrett was innocent. All they have linking him to the crime is circumstantial evidence. Some of his habits appear suspicious, but I had great faith that they could be explained away. But as time passed, the author certainly did a good job of making me question my convictions!Even in a lighthearted story like this one, the ramifications of lying--even undercover as a detective--are clear and painful. After hours of worrying together over a sick child, [...]

    9. I was very impressed with this novel. It has taken me a while to find a book where the characters and the story plot was entertaining to read about. A really good thing about this novel is that you don’t have to read them in order.The heroine was a great character to read about. I always love to read novels that includes a mail order bride or a marriage of convenience stories especially in a western historical fiction setting. I thought it was really cool to read about a female detective in th [...]

    10. If you love a good Western romance, you'll want to get this one in your sights, 'cause with Margaret Brownley it's sure shootin'!The dry hot Arizona Territory harbors the elusive Whistle-Stop train robbers, and Pinkerton detectives are hired to flush them out. Maggie Cartwright just wants to do her job, then head onto her next assignment, but deep down all she really wants is a family of her own. How can she stay detached when there are two sweet kids and their gentlemanly father in the mix? Is [...]

    11. This was a fun western romance. I liked the story. It was an interesting blend of romance and mystery. I liked the outcome of the investigation and way the mystery was solved. That was interesting. The characters were, for the most part, likable. The main characters, Maggie and Garrett, I liked from the beginning. I also liked his children, Toby and Elise. They were cute. Although I don't like the desert, I did like the setting of this book, which was a small town in Arizona. There was a happy e [...]

    12. The Pinkerton's are trying to solve a train robbery. Maggie shows up in town as a mail order bride for Garrett. She happens to be an agent and he happens to be their suspected robber/murderer. Maggie is surprised when she starts to have feelings for Garrett and they include more than her suspicions that they are after the wrong guy. She loves his children and wishes she could marry him for real. But when he learns of her deceit, there's not much chance of that. This was a great story.

    13. 4.5 starsI liked this even better than the first book! It was enjoyable and is one of my favorite of Brownley's books so far. I've been waiting for it to come out, so grabbed a copy as soon as it came in at the bookstore. I read it all in one evening today and definitely loved the characters. The whole little family was so sweet, especially Toby's humorous attempts to know the answer to everything: "A fibula someone who lies." Classic!

    14. Hey guys please bear with me as I try to find my reviewing style in,one of my first reviews 😀Where to start ! This book was amazing ! I love Margaret Brownleys characters in both of the books that I'd read so far . They are so unique ,whimsical , and hillarious ! I even enjoyed the villians . Maggie the main character is a Pinkerton detective. Her newest assignment is to pose as a mail order bride for none other than the man suspected to be the Whistle Stop bandit a bank robber . Maggie has o [...]

    15. I enjoyed this, but I can't rate it higher than three stars, mostly because I kept thinking about the living arrangements, which were totally unbelievable(view spoiler)[. There's no way that it would have been okay with the community in 1882 for Maggie to live with Garrett before marriage, yet it was not a problem in this story. The reverend even thought it was okay once Maggie reminded him that the children would be there, like children would be a sufficient chaperone. 🙄 And then there's the [...]

    16. This is not my normal kind of read… But I have to admit that I really really like it. I'm glad that I decided to give this book series a chance because it has opened my eyes to new opportunities in reading different types of books.

    17. It's incredible to think what detectives had to work with, or didn't, in the 19th century. This book offers great insights into things. I loved the building up of the main characters relationship!

    18. This was a cute romantic suspense or mystery book. I question whether a person could overcome his feeling of being deceived quite as quickly as Garrett did but it was still a nice story.

    19. I have not learned much about the Pinkerton detectives in my history education, so these books are quite interesting. I really enjoy reading about the actual methods they used intertwined with fictional characters.

    20. I totally enjoyed this humorous read which I could not put down, I ended up staying up to 3 in the morning until I could not keep my eyes open anymore. I found it to be a very intriguing with Maggie being a Pinkerton detective and all the messes she gets into trying to help raise a very strong willed boy who's mind is ahead of his time can be trying. Maggie agreed to become a mail-ordered bride to catch the team who stole the money two years ago from a train all leads go back to one man her atte [...]

    21. Undercover Bride is the second book in Margaret Brownley’s, Undercover Ladies series, though they each stand alone quite well. I’ve read a few of Margaret’s books, though I have to be honest and say that while I’ve enjoyed all of them, she isn’t on my must-read list. Her books are generally cute, engaging, and make me laugh. I can say the same of this one.The historical details are well done and I had fun peeking into the life of a Pinkerton operative. Unfortunately, it took me almost [...]

    22. Though I haven’t read this author in a while I have always been a fan of her books. I really enjoyed book one in this series so I figure it was a safe bet I would enjoy this one as well and I wasn’t wrong.Maggie is a detective with the Pinkerton Agency and they have been trying to track down the Whistle Stop Bandit. They are pretty sure it’s Thomas Garrett because of the description and so when he puts an ad in for a mail order bride they devised a plan. Maggie would summit a reply to his [...]

    23. Like the description says, this book follows Maggie Cartwright who becomes an undercover mail order bride, gains a betrothal to the suspect, evidently falling in love with Garrett Thomas and wishing she did not have to keep up the fake persona. This book takes place in 1882, in what was then known as the Southern West territory of America. Maggie, a Pinkerton operative, cannot stand injustice. Though she is undercover, and supposed to maintain a low profile to not botch up the mission, Maggie st [...]

    24. •°o THUMBS UP FOR 1882 FAITH & MYSTERY WESTERN o°•I really enjoyed Maggie and Garret’s story; so much so that I read the entire book in a day.

Garrett Thomas is a former prisoner of war, who has tried to suppress those horrible memories and move on with his life. He is a widower with two young children and a thriving tinker business.

    26. Maggie Cartwright (aka Maggie Taylor), a lady Pinkerton detective, will do anything needed to get her suspect, including answering an ad for a mail-order bride. Garrett Thomas was suspected of robbing a train and killing the guard. Garrett fit the description to a “T” of the train robber. Since his wife died leaving him to raise two small children, he placed an ad in the paper for a mail-order bride and the Pinkerton agency sent Maggie undercover. Maggie was a good detective and she was dete [...]

    27. Undercover Bride is the second book in Margaret Brownley's Undercover Ladies series. It's the first book I've read by Ms. Brownley, but won't be the last. Widower Garrett Thomas is looking for a bride to help him raise his two children. Maggie Cartwright is looking to arrest Garrett as the Whistle Stop train robber---a thief and murderer.
