Overview

From bestselling author Kathleen Y’Barbo comes a brand-new series of romance, adventure, and hidden identity.

May 1887—Flora Brimm is determined the fifth time is the charm. Back home she has a reputation as “Fatal Flora,” a woman whose previous four fiancés died in untimely accidents. Flora is desperate to marry, because producing an heir is the only way she can keep her family’s estate. She’s confident this visit to Eureka Springs with her grandmother will help her land a husband.

Pinkerton detective Lucas McMinn is hot on the trail of Will Tucker, the thief who broke his sister’s heart. When he discovers the slippery fellow with Flora, he thinks they are in on the devious plot together. Will Flora be able to convince Lucas of her innocence? Will Lucas catch the elusive Mr. Tucker?

And, more importantly, will Lucas survive if he pursues Flora’s heart?

An engaging story of how God can move circumstances to bring love, joy, and lasting fulfillment to the most hopeless heart.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Flora Brimm would be considered a Black Widow—if any of her fiancés actually survived long enough to marry her. Flora must marry to keep her family's estate intact, but men aren't exactly lining up to be betrothed number five. She hopes a visit to her grandmother in post-Civil War Eureka Springs, AR, is the answer. There she meets two men: one a Pinkerton detective, and the other, a cad. A romantic historical series debut by a popular author.
Publishers Weekly
Fans of post-Civil War stories set in the South will find much to enjoy in Y’Barbo’s first in the Secret Lives of Will Tucker series. “Fatal Flora,” called such because of the deaths of four of her fiancés, is eager to marry Will Tucker when she meets up with him in Eureka Springs, Ark. Instead she discovers Lucas McMinn, a Pinkerton agent also searching for Tucker. Their initial meeting results in Flora Brimm of the Natchez Brimms in handcuffs and trying to explain to her proper and formidable grandmother what’s going on. Flora and Lucas seem destined to work together on the case, with Lucas vowing Tucker is guilty and Flora saying he isn’t. As they get to know each other, Lucas discovers Flora is more than a spoiled Southern belle and she discovers Lucas is more than a stubborn Pinkerton. But will Flora marry Tucker to save her inheritance? Historical romance fans will adore this charming story. Agent: Wendy Lawton, Books & Such Literary Agency. (Feb.)
