Love in Disguise by Carol Cox

Ellie Moore has spent many years as the wardrobe mistress, make-up artist and general assistant to an actress who is about to leave for Europe. Ellie loses her job and must look for another one quickly as she hasn't much money to survive on, in wintry Chicago. As she tries to find new employment, she overhears two men discussing a job that needs another woman to pretend to be the niece of a widowed woman in the warmer area of Arizona. It sounds like the perfect opportunity for Ellie, so she follows the two men into what turns out to be the Pinkerton Detective Agency. After a few more encounters with the agency, she convinces them to hire her for the job to be a detective investigating the theft of silver shipments.
This book was fun to read. The woman that Ellie was supposed to play the niece to, throws a very big wrench into the works which leads to a real challenge for Ellie. Tell the truth to the Pinkertons and lose her new found job or pretend that all is fine and play more than one role. Although at times I had some doubts about things like the make-up and costuming all done by Ellie alone, it just didn't deter me from really enjoying this book very much. I do recommend this book to everyone.
This book was provided to me by Bethany House Publishers to read and review.
