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 fianc├ęs 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 THOUGHTS
Instinct tells you to feel sorry for poor fatal Flora, but you just can't, nor does she want you to!  Flora is one girl with a lot of gumption, a lot of sass, and loves to do things on a whim which will bring a smile to your face if not a laugh!

As with so many romance stories you can see where this is going early on in the book, but the story line is just so much fun that it really doesn't matter one bit.  I loved her antics, and even her very stern grandmother will begin to grow on you by the end.

A fun read.
