Love in Disguise
Can she solve the crime before they uncover her true identity?

Jobless and down to her last dime, Ellie Moore hears about a position with the Pinkerton Detective Agency and believes it’s the perfect chance to put her acting skills and costumes to use. Reluctantly, the agency agrees to give her one assignment, one chance to prove herself. Disguised as Lavinia Stewart, a middle-aged widow, Ellie travels to Arizona to begin her investigation. When the need arises, she also transforms into the dazzling Jessie Monroe, whose vivacious personality encourages people to talk.

Mine owner Steven Pierce is going to lose his business if he can’t figure out who’s stealing his silver shipments. In his wildest dreams, he never expected to receive help from a gray-haired widow . . . or to fall in love with her beautiful niece.
Then the thieves come after Lavinia and Jessie. Ellie isn’t safe no matter which character she plays! Should she give up and reveal her true identity? What will Steven do when he realizes the woman he’s falling in love with doesn’t really exist? Purchase Love in Disguise here. 

When warm weather comes along, it’s time to fire up the grill! This recipe is one my family discovered recently, and it has already become a favorite. I love the simplicity of grilling the main course of a meal and rounding it out with a simple salad and a steamed vegetable. It makes this a perfect choice when a deadline is looming, and I’m under time pressure. (Especially if I can get my husband to man the grill!) This recipe serves three, but it’s easy to adjust the ingredients to suit your own needs.

Pineapple-Curry Grilled Chicken
3  chicken breasts (or thighs, if your family prefers dark meat)
6 T. mayonnaise
¾ tsp. curry powder
1 15 oz. can pineapple chunks, drained

Preheat the grill to a medium temperature.
Set the chicken pieces on a sheet of heavy-duty foil. Combine the mayonnaise and curry powder, then spread over the chicken. A silicone basting brush works well for this. Arrange the pineapple chunks over the chicken. Move the chicken to the grill. Cook approximately 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken is done

If you’re in a hurry and forgot to thaw the chicken, you can start with frozen chicken pieces. Proceed in the same manner as above, but extend the grilling time to 40-45 minutes. As a variation, add diced green peppers along with the pineapple chunks for a splash of color and some extra Vitamin C!


  1. This looks soooooooo yummmy! I'm going to have to try it and soon :) Thanks for sharing! The book is going to be great too. I'm putting it on my TBR pile :)

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Rhonda. This recipe does look good. And I'm eager to read Carol's newest release! It sounds like a winner!

  2. Thanks, Rhonda! I love quick and easy! (And I hope you enjoy the book. )

    1. Thanks for sharing your recipe with us, Carol. I'm looking forward to trying it. And I'm eager to read your new book. Have a blessed week.

    2. Thanks for having me here, Deborah! I love browsing through your site!

  3. This recipe looks amazing! Have you tried it with fish? My husband is allergic to chicken so I think I will try it over fish. Thanks for the idea. I am super excited about your book, it is definitely on my TBR list!!

  4. Oooh, that sounds good! I think it would work beautifully with fish. Our family loves grilled mahi, so guess how I'm going to fix it next time? :-)

  5. I thought Robyn's idea about substituting fish for the chicken in the recipe sounded so promising that I tried it out the other day. I started out with frozen mahi fillets, prepared them as per the recipe directions, and grilled them for about 25 minutes. Delicious! So glad Robyn posted that suggestion!!
