Publisher's Summary

To guard his heart or protect two little girls.... Is he willing to risk it all?

1871: Pinkerton detective Chas Bryant's last job for the agency is supposed to be easy - deliver a cache of stolen items back to Mount Vernon after recovering them from profiteers. Soon, however, Chas discovers that nothing in this case is simple. When he’s called upon to search for a little girl gone missing after her parents are murdered, there’s only one woman who can help him . . . but he’ll need to make her his wife in order to complete the investigation. 

Jessica Flanders is only trying to rescue her younger sister from a fate bleaker than death. How can the powers that be possibly think that separating them from each other is a good idea? Jessica made a dying promise to her parents. Now she needs Chas’s help to get her sister back, but when they dig deeper into the matter, they discover another little girl with an even greater need for being rescued. 

Soon it becomes clear that someone else is searching for the missing girl, too. Can they keep her safe until the case is solved and the murderers are caught? If so, Chas and Jessica will need to forge a bond that is stronger than the evil forces surrounding them, and in the process, a love that will never be lost. 

Listen to each of the Pinkerton Matchmaker stories in any order. These agents give the phrase "married to your work" a whole new meaning!

Mystery Romance

This is the first book in this series that I have read or listened to. It is a quick listen with a predictable story.
Would recommend it.
Clean read.

Predictable, but interesting

This installment of the Pinkerton series is a fun and interesting read. The main characters, Charles and Jessica, are on a quest to find out who wanted to murder a horse breeder. The audiobook's narration was good. The case the agents' had to solve was predictable, but interesting.

Great story

I haven’t read many Christian romances and this was the first I’ve listened to. I enjoyed it much more than I expected to. It was a good story about Godly people that brought up Godly concepts as they related to the story without being too preachy.

Loved the narration!

I’ve been reading this series, so this is my first audiobook of this series. I was shocked at first by Archibald’s Scottish accent because I don’t hear it when reading, but it was great and now I hope to listen to many more by this narrator!
The story was wonderful with twists and turns and a very different beginning that pulled me right in! I loved the ending!!
