ABOUT THE BOOK
May 1887--Flora Brimm is determined the fifth time is the charm. Back home she has a reputation as "Fatal Flora," a woman whose previous four fiancés died in untimely accidents. Flora is desperate to marry, because producing an heir is the only way she can keep her family's estate. She's confident this visit to Eureka Springs with her grandmother will help her land a husband.
Pinkerton detective Lucas McMinn is hot on the trail of Will Tucker, the thief who broke his sister's heart. When he discovers the slippery fellow with Flora, he thinks they are in on the devious plot together. Will Flora be able to convince Lucas of her innocence? Will Lucas catch the elusive Mr. Tucker?
And, more importantly, will Lucas survive if he pursues Flora's heart?

MY REVIEW-Kathleen writes in a way that reminds me of Mary Connealy. Her books are infused with good humor that makes reading the story a joy. Flora's Wish is no different and I thoroughly enjoyed being plunged into the lives of Flora and Lucas. If you relish the idea of taking a trip to an earlier age with mystery, pinkerton's and lovely ladies, this is the book to pick up. Be ready for a good laugh and a few lessons learned along the way. Like don't go jumping to any conclusions:) Can't wait for the next book in the series!
