Back Cover Copy:
MEMPHIS 1889 -- Bookish heiress Millie Cope is as clever as she is beautiful. Unfortunately, though adept at solving puzzles and cryptograms, she doesn't realize her new fiance isn't who he claims to be, but is a charming scoundrel. The notorious Will Tucker is passing himself off as a British gentleman, Sir William Trueck, though in reality he is a crafty criminal looking for a hidden map to a secret treasure.
Pinkerton agent and part-time inventor Kyle Russell has been on Tucker's trail for years. At last Kyle believes he has Tucker cornered, but he is uncertain whether the lovely woman on the con man's arm is an unsuspecting victim or a willing accomplice. Finding reasons to spend time with Millie is easy. Keeping himself from falling in love with her is another issue entirely.
That snippet barely scratches the surface of all the fun just waiting to be discovered within this story's pages. But I don't want to spoil any of the surprises, so take my word for it, you need to read this one. From the streets of Historic Memphis to the bayous of New Orleans, from charming con men to legends of lost pirate treasure, from witty inventions to surprising family secrets, this book has it all, including a wonderful hero, a spunky heroine, and a heart-warming love story.
