Book Review:
Petticoat Detective by Margaret Brownley is the first book in the Undercover Ladies series and also the first I have read by the author.

I got attracted towards this book because of the blurb which is intriguing and had me imagining a story full of suspense, mystery and romance with a strong woman detective and I am so glad to say that I wasn't disappointed.

This is the story of Jennifer who is a Pinkerton Detective and currently undercover as as a lady companion named Amy at Miss Lillian’s Parlor House and Boots on the trail of the notorious Gunnysack Bandit but a murder at Miss Lillian's adds another mystery for her to solve with many suspects, one of which is Tom Colton, a former Texas Ranger determined to clear his brother’s name. Wrong for her in all senses, Jennifer cant help suspecting Tom. But is he the real murderer?

I enjoyed the story right from the start and could not help but like Jennifer who is not only a strong character but also a very good detective. She has made a place for herself in a man's world and I enjoyed following her on her adventures as she solved the clues to the mysteries. 


Tom is also a likable character and his dedication towards solving his brother's murder had me admiring him. The romance between him and Jennifer builds slowly and is intense. So suited for each other, I rooted for a happily-ever-after for them.

Margaret's writing style is engaging and she had me visualizing her story world as vividly as if I was there myself. The story is crisp and fast paced and had me speculating the solution to the mystery till the very end.

There are also doses of comedy and laughter expertly thrown in which made this book a complete package with a good story, a challenging mystery, realistic characters and full entertainment guaranteed,

All in all, Petticoat Detective by Margaret Brownley had me entertained throughout. 4 out of 5 to it and recommended to everyone. I will be checking out the other books by the author and look forward to reading more from her in the future.




I received the book from the publishers via Netgalley and I am very thankful to them. The above review is my honest and unbiased opinion and in  no way influenced.
