Publisher's Summary

Calista York needs one more successful case as a Pinkerton operative to secure her job. When she's assigned to find the kidnapped daughter of a mob boss, she's sent to the rowdy mining town of Joplin, Missouri, despite having extended family in the area. Will their meddling expose her mission and keep Lila Seaton from being recovered? 

When Matthew Cook decided to be a missionary, he never expected to be sent only a short train ride away. While fighting against corruption of all sorts, Matthew hears of a baby raffle being held to raise funds for a children's home. He'll do what he can to stop it, but he also wants to stop the reckless Miss York, whose bad judgment consistently seems to be putting her in harm's way 

Calista doesn't need the handsome pastor interfering with her investigation, and she can't let her disguise slip. Her job and the life of a young lady depend on keeping Matthew in the dark.

Christian Historical Romance

I had no idea Joplin was like this! And the family! Man, they're something! Bit nothing compares to the baby raffle!
I enjoyed the story and the slow romance.

Good, but not a lot of depth

It was still a good story even though I debated not purchasing the second book in the series. But, towards the end of Courting Misfortune, I have to listen to the second story! I also liked the narration.
