Guest Post from Tracey Lyons

My family and I spent a lot of time in the Adirondack Mountains of New York State. When I came up with the idea for the Pinkerton series, I knew the books had to be set in a place that I loved. The Heart of An Agent, book 2 in The Adirondack Pinkertons series takes place at an Adirondack great camp. Imagine a time when people would travel from faraway places to hike the many trails or lounge on a porch in one of the famed Adirondack chairs. These intricate, grand structures, built during the latter part of the nineteenth century are part of the unique landscape and history that makes up the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York. I enjoyed creating the fictional Murphy camp, the setting for Lily Handland and Owen Murphy’s story.

My Review

The Heart of an Agent is the second installment from Tracey J Lyons's series, The Adirondack Pinkertons. I have read the first book, A Changed Agent and liked it, but I thought this book was better1 I found it to be unique to read about a woman to work for the Pinkerton agency. I never though that was a possibility during those times. I just love Lily and admired her strength in trying to settle down to enjoy a peaceful life. I could feel her struggles moving on from her past. I felt a real connection to her. I, also, liked Owen. I was not sure of him at first but he really grew on me. Especially, after I got to know him.

I found The Heart of an Agent to be a pretty good read. I can not wait for the release of the next book in the Adirondack Pinkertons series.

4 stars.

I received this book from the publisher. The review is 100% my own honest opinion.
