Texas Law by Anne Greene is a book in the Pinkerton Detective Collection. This novella is a light, western story with a courageous hero who is a Pinkerton Detective and a heroine who is a beautiful and strong woman. The story is set in 1879 in San Antonio, Texas.
Robbers threaten a rancher’s two daughters and steal the mortgage money that the older daughter, Cat Devine, is hiding on her person. She had divulged information to the wrong person who had informed the stagecoach thieves. Thus, her father held her solely responsible for the loss. In order to find the culprits and also to protect his daughters from further harm, Cat’s father hires Travis McGuire. Intrigued with each other from their first meeting, they deal with her demanding father, the search for the thieves, and the gossip of neighbors.
I recommend this brief story that is entertaining and an easy-read. I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review. The author has written several novellas, several series, and stand-alone titles. She has travelled to every location of each book.
