Read With Audra Presents: Counterfeit Love (Hidden Hearts of the Gilded Age, #1) by Crystal Caudill

 

Can this undercover agent save the woman he loves--or is her heart as counterfeit as the money he's been sent to track down?

After all that Grandfather has sacrificed to raise her, Theresa Plane owes it to him to save the family name--and that means clearing their debt with creditors before she marries Edward Greystone. But when one of the creditors' threats leads her to stumble across a midnight meeting, she discovers that the money he owes isn't all Grandfather was hiding. And the secrets he kept have now trapped Theresa in a life-threatening fight for her home--and the truth.

After months of undercover work, Secret Service operative Broderick Cosgrove is finally about to uncover the identity of the leader of a notorious counterfeiting ring. That moment of triumph turns to horror, however, when he finds undeniable proof that his former fiance is connected. Can he really believe the woman he loved is a willing participant? Protecting Theresa and proving her innocence may destroy his career--but that's better than failing her twice in one lifetime.

They must form a partnership, tentative though it is. But there's no question they're both still keeping secrets--and that lack of trust, along with the dangerous criminals out for their blood, threatens their hearts, their faith, and their very survival.

My Review

 

 

Wow! This is the first book I've read by this author, but it won't be the last! I was page turning from the beginning to the end, looking for answers. Yes, near the end I did suspect the main culprit, and yet surprisingly, I was still looking for answers, and the safety of those I now cared about!

Christian suspense at it's finest, along with a bit of humor! Past and present Loves, and who will win in the end? We are given the heartbreak of loosing the one you love, marrying another, counterfeiting, people who do not value human life, and then redemption!

I received this book through Read With Audra, and was not required to give a positive review.
