Gunpowder Tea is the last in Margaret Brownley's The Brides of Last Chance Ranch series. Miranda Hunt, Pinkerton detective, goes undercover as Annie Beckman to try and discover the identity of the Phantom who has been robbing trains and banks in the area of the Last Chance Ranch. She poses as a potential heiress. This assignment will finally provide the opportunity to prove herself as a competent Pinkerton agency detective and hopefully win the esteem of her male colleagues in the process.
When an accomplice to the train robbery shows up for the position as a ranch hand, Annie is suspicious of him from the start. Jeremy Taggert is a thorn in her flesh, but she also can't deny an attraction to the man as well. It will take the two of them working together to discover the true identity of the Phantom. Will they choose to work toward a common good or instead fight against each other?
I found this book to be a delightful end to The Brides of Last Chance Ranch series.
