Loving this series so much!

Wow, with each book that I read from this series, it just seems to be getting better and better! I really loved Mina and Reece's story because they just made a great couple and her experience as an agent really helped the story be more interesting because both characters were evenly matched to help the case they were solving! I truly can't wait to start reading the next book in this series to see how that couple gets their happily ever after also!

I was excited to read a new book by one of my favorite Authors, in a new multi Author series . This series is exciting. Pinkerton Agents Marry to save their jobs.. Teaching women to become agents. Wilhelmina Cutler was an exception. She had informal/formal training from her uncle. She and her new husband Agent Reece Galway are headed to San Francisco to solve an exciting Diamond theft case.
She needs to convince Reece she can handle herself. Twists and turns and a budding romance will all

I am enjoying this series very much.

Wilhelmina was raised by her uncle who was a Pinkerton Agent. He taught her well. Unfortunately when she marries, her partner doesn't read her file and has no idea as to her talents. He wants to protect and keep safe this female partner rather than letting her be a part of the team. It doesn't take long for her to stop letting him walk all over her abilities. Their job, to find out if a claim to an insurance agency is for real or a hoax by the people who put

Mina and Reece

The Pinkerton Detective Agency's Denver office has decided to start hiring women as agents to be paired with male agents who will teach them the ropes. The only stipulation? They must marry their partner so the women's reputation won't be ruined.

Mina was taught by her father, a Pinkerton agent, the tricks of the trade. So when she was paired with Reece, she wasn't too happy with the way he was treating her. When he thought to teach her how to shoot she showed him that she already

Another fun and clean romance. Reese and Wilhelmina start off like firecrackers. Not wanting anything to really do with marriage to each other. But along the way, the discover a lot about each other and fall for who that person really is. This story has a lot of misunderstandings that are righted. They both have strengths and weakness’s that they start to help each other with. It was fun finding out how they fell for each other. There is humor as well as seriousness. A wonderful series so far. ...more

Wonderful story by Sophie Dawson

Another fantastic, fun, and funny book with some Pinkerton Agenture and a bit of romance in with great results. It's always fun to see when a woman can turn complete surprises on her unsuspecting new husband. I really enjoyed this store with and appearance on the very famous Nugget Hate and his with wife Penny showing in in this book. Awesome work by this author who I applaud at her very wit of this story and many surprises she got in. Thank you Ms. Dawson for the

"A Working Relationship Turns Into Love"

Wilhelmina Cutler has moved in with her aunt and uncle who was a Pinkerton agent. She's also wanting to become an agent and her chance has come as the Denver agency is now hiring women. Mina already has been trained in most skills by her uncle and is sure she can handle any case. Little does she realize that she'll have to marry newly hired agent Reece Galway. They both may want to resign ... and have an annulment. But things change while on assignment.

Second book of the Pinkerton series but can stand alone

This is the second book of the Pinkerton Matchmaker series. An Agent for Wilhelmina is a great story of a woman who was born to be an agent and an agent who doesn’t want a woman as a partner. I love the dynamic between the two agents as they find their way to a partnership in both work and life. This is a humorous suspenseful book. I highly recommend An Agent for Wilhelmina!

Delightful out of the box historical romance series. This intriguing novella is filled with historical tidbits, interesting characters, twist and turn plot, and mystery. Not your usual matchmaker and not the run of the mill detective story. As a woman, I admired Wilhelmina's feisty spirit, patience in revealing her skills and relatives and craftiness. As the story progresses I even liked Reece. Fun entertaining read.

Reece Meets His Match

This is a fun series about men and women Pinkerton agents. I enjoyed reading Reece and Mina's story. She is a woman with gumption. When her man is in danger, she does not just sit idly by as women were expected to do in those days. They got married for the sake of propriety, but the attraction between them is undeniable. I enjoyed following them on their adventure as they fought their attraction and worked on solving their mystery.

One of my most favourite books in this series. I loved Wilhelmina and Reese's story. She didn't want a husband, especially one that didn't value her skills. And he didn't want a wife he'd have to look after - boy was he in for a surprise.
I love how they interacted and how Mina kept surprising Reese all the time. She sure didn't let him get away with everything.
I totally recommend this book! It's cute, funny with good clean romance and a sizeable dash of mystery.

Wilhelmina had received the proper training and wanted to be a Pinkerton Agent more than anything. She waa even willing to marry a complete stranger to become a Pinkerton Agent. Would this marriage last after the case waa solved? Another great novel by Sophie Dawson with well developed characters and beloved ones from her other novels making their appearances. It is just like making new friends while keeping the old ones which makes her novels extra special and a joy to read.
While each book in the series can be read as a stand-alone and they are not required to be read in order; they do each have the same origin story and it appears that they have not employed a continuity reader to ensure that the origin of each book are the same. There are small but quite noticeable differences in each of the books I've read so far. They don't detract from the overall story but I do find them distracting.

Reese and Wilhilmina

Reese and Wilhilmina Galway I now pronounce you man and wife. Neither were in favor of this marriage, but both wanted to be Pinkerton Agents and this was their only way. Their assignment was to investigate a jewelery theft in California. This is a fun and interesting story and you will enjoy reading it very much.

Awesome detective book

Love it. Strong woman, who knows her worth and a strong man not afraid that his masculinity suffers when proven wrong. Too it off with a jewel heist, romps around 1880s San Francisco, including mysterious Chinatown, and a cameo of the wonderful Nugget Nate. Writing, characterization, and dialogue are wonderful.

Intriguing Series

I love these stories. They grab your interest and keep you reading to find out what happens next. Sweet clean love stories wrapped in colorful characters and awesome Pinkerton assignments. It was thrilling to get a visit from Nugget Nate and Penny, warm, colorful characters from a previous series. You will enjoy this series. I am off to read book 3.

I love this new genre for Sophie! It's still historical romance, but more detective/suspense than pure Western romance. An excellent story! This beautiful Pinkerton Agent is a relative of the infamous Nugget Nate! So it connects with many of Sophie's other series! Which is a bonus in my opinion!

Another enjoyable read. So far, the series is good fun. The characters developed enough to engage with. The whole scenario is interesting and keeps you reading. The individual "quirks" of each case and characters just adds to the fun. Waiting to read the next one

An Agent for Wilhelmina(The Pinkerton Matchmaker)

Excellent read. Second in this series. I laughed as Reece and Mina went through their get to know time and Nugget Mate added to the humor of the story.
Wonderful book! There were surprises in this book that made me smile! Relatives and hiding places caught me off guard. It was also great that there was a bit of a crossover into another book. A wonderful book in this series that it not to be missed.

While these books are stand alone books, this book referenced some characters and events from the previous book in the series, so it’s nice reading them in order. I’ve really enjoyed getting to know all these characters. Another fun fast read in the Pinkerton matchmaker series.

This was a good as the first book!
It held my interest throughout. I did skip through some of the descriptions of the dresses and rooms. That doesn't interest me, but they weren't long which was nice. I'm on to the third book. Happy reading!

Having been a costumer for over 50 years I was intrigued by the cleverness of all the secret pockets the heroine made to hide her weapons!!! A woman after my own heart.
