Calico Spy

Calico Spy
Undercover Ladies #3
Margaret Brownley
Katie is one of only a few female Pinkerton agents. So when two female Harvey girls are murdered, she is sent to infiltrate the the girls at the Harvey House and find their killer. This is made a bit more difficult by the fact that Branch, the local lawman, hates Pinkerton agents. And he's even less thrilled when he finds out that he's working with a female one. 

This was a fun story that will entertain readers of light mystery novels. It took me a while to get into the book. I think the beginning had too much back story to go through before we could get to the main plot lines. This is book 3 in a series, but only ties in with the previous novels because the main character is a Pinkerton agent. The characters were fun and I enjoyed the interactions between them. But quite a bit of the story felt unnecessary to the main plot. The romance was sweet, predictable, and low-key. Overall, while I enjoyed it, I don't think this book is my favorite by this author. So I would give it a 3.5 stars.

 I received this book free of charge from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
