Gunpowder Tea….by Margaret Brownley

Gunpowder Tea

The Brides Of Last Chance Ranch Series




In a case that could change her career, Miranda uncovers a love that will change her life.

When Miranda Hunt sees the classified ad for an heiress to the legendary Last Chance Ranch, she knows assuming the identity of Annie Beckman is the perfect cover. As one of the finest agents for the Pinkerton Detective Agency, Miranda has been tasked with apprehending the Phantom—an elusive and notorious train robber thought to be hiding on the sprawling ranch.

But she isn’t the only one at the ranch with something to hide. Wells Fargo detective Jeremy Taggart is working undercover as well. Their true identities may be a secret, but it is impossible for Jeremy and Miranda to hide the sparks flaring between them.

Neither is about to let romance interfere with such a huge case. Besides, Miranda hasn’t removed Jeremy from her list of suspects yet. The closer they get to uncovering the identity of the Phantom, the more dangerous he gets—and no one on the ranch is safe.

The longer Miranda and Jeremy spend working together, the harder it becomes to keep their feelings in check. Their careers—and their lives—depend on solving this case. Love will just have to wait.


Wow, Margaret Brownley has done it again!  I love, love Gunpowder Tea! And I love Miranda! She is so determined to be Pinkerton’s top operative, she is willing to do just about anything to make sure that opportunity comes true. Assuming the identity of Annie Beckman at the Last Chance Ranch is just what Miranda needs to prove herself. But dealing with Jeremy Taggart at the ranch could be a problem. Especially since Miranda doesn’t know that he is a Wells Fargo Detective searching for the same answers as she is. Which agency will win out?

Margaret Brownley captured my attention from the very first page of Gunpowder Tea. The characters are so real, and Margaret developed each character into someone so unique and personal they will stay with you for many days and months after you finish the story. In fact, I would love a continuation of this series myself! As I read Gunpowder Tea, I not only read a fun, interesting and entertaining story, I laughed until I cried sometimes at the humor throughout the book. Margaret Brownley has a unique way of adding humor to her western and detective story that I absolutely love! I actually love everything about this story, and I just can’t say enough about it. But I don’t give away plots, so you need to read Gunpowder Tea for yourself and see what its all about. I assure you, you will not be disappointed! I know you  will love, love this entire series from Margaret Brownley!

ff6ec060ada0c83b298b2210.L._V192223235_Thrills, mystery, suspense, romance: Margaret penned it all. Nothing wrong with this–except Margaret happened to be writing for the church newsletter at the time. After making the church picnic read like a Grisham novel, her former pastor took her aside and said, “Maybe God’s calling you to write fiction.”
So that’s what Margaret did. She’s now a New York Times bestselling author and a Romance Writers of America RITA finalist with more than 25 novels to her credit. Her first non-fiction book “Grieving God’s Way: the Lasting Path to Hope and Healing” has won much critical acclaim. She is currently working on the third book in her “Brides of Last Chance Ranch series.”

Not bad for someone who flunked 8th grade English. Just don’t ask her to diagram a sentence.
