Trouble always seems to find her.
If only he hadn’t been raised to help a maiden in need.
Will they find strength in each other and the courage to love?
Amaryllis Flanders—Amy for short—is tired of her sister, Jessica, constantly reprimanding her for her boyish ways. She wants to be involved in more than mindless housework or helping to tend her sister and brother-in-law’s babies. With her friend, Sarah’s, wedding taking place in Denver, Colorado, Amy can hardly wait to leave her home in Virginia and begin a grand adventure. But even she has no idea of the harrowing experience it will be.
Derrick Baldwin doesn’t know what hit him. He was engaged to Sarah Packard until she decided to marry her childhood friend. Now that the wedding’s been called off, he’s glad to see all of his guests leaving. He just wants to be left in peace. But the maddeningly spirited and foolish Amy unwittingly became the recipient of a mysterious package, and now, the package has suddenly disappeared. Whoever sent it wants it back, and they’re willing to kill to get it. The only way he can keep Amy safe is to become a Pinkerton agent and help her solve the case, hopefully before their luck runs out—or before he realizes that he has fallen in love with her.
Rating: Mild. Mild kissing; mild (nonsexual) violence or horror.
Cute story though I’m not really sure that the match was because of Pinkertons. But whatever. The story was still cute. Poor Amaryllis, all of 17, feels like she’ll never fit in since she is such a tomboy. But opposites attract and she finds her place.
Mild Christian themes that fit well into the story.
