The book I’m featuring this week is Courting Misfortune by Regina Jennings:
‘You want me to work for Jinxy Seaton?’ Calista York dropped her handbag into her desk and reached up to remove her hatpin from her heavy swirl of brown curls.”
My copy of this one JUST came in the mail yesterday. I hope to dig into it very soon. It looks like it’s a promising page-turner 🙂
About the Book:
Calista York needs one more successful case as a Pinkerton operative to secure her job. When she’s assigned to find the kidnapped daughter of a mob boss, she’s sent to the rowdy mining town of Joplin, Missouri, despite having extended family in the area. Will their meddling expose her mission and keep Lila Seaton from being recovered?
When Matthew Cook decided to be a missionary, he never expected to be sent only a short train ride away. While fighting against corruption of all sorts, Matthew hears of a baby raffle being held to raise funds for a children’s home. He’ll do what he can to stop it, but he also wants to stop the reckless Miss York, whose bad judgment consistently seems to be putting her in harm’s way.
Calista doesn’t need the handsome pastor interfering with her investigation, and she can’t let her disguise slip. Her job and the life of a young lady depend on keeping Matthew in the dark.
Now it’s your turn!
