    ?The Heart of an Agent? is one of those books that makes one wish for a kinder, gentler world than the one we now live in. Of course if you actually think about it, the world probably wasn?t quite as kind and gentle as it seemed or there would have been no need for the Pinkertons...

    Look, the truth is that I often get excited about ideas and then discover they aren?t as wonderful as I hoped?and you know what? In a very small way, this book is no exception. But for the most part, I actually did love most of it. First, characterization: Tracey Lyons created ...

    The Heart of an Agent was simply a delightful read about a young woman who formerly had an unusual career, that of a Pinkerton agent. Lily just wants to start a new life and be herself, no more going undercover and masquerading around as someone she is not. As this takes place in the 1...

    An endearing mix of bittersweet and funny. Owen's grieving is heart-wrenching...but I'll admit to being a wee bit impatient with him too. I know that sounds awful - it's just that he has been wallowing for a long time with disastrous results. He hasn't turned away from God, but he does...

    The story is surrounded with historical facts that make it become a visual literary gem. I loved learning about the camps that housed people and was a welcome treat for guests. I could see the beautiful landscape that surrounded the camp and the welcoming smells of fresh bread cooling ...

    This was a lighthearted, sweet romance that I enjoyed reading. Rebecca, the main character, impressed me with her can-do attitude. She also had refined tastes and a clear sense of propriety and etiquette. The many experiences she had had as a Pinkerton agent had shaped her, but her des...

    "The Heart of an Agent "by Tracey J. Lyons is the second book in the "The Adirondack Pinkerton" series. I think a reader would enjoy this book as a standalone, even though we meet the heroine Lily in the first book. "The Heart of an Agent " is a story about second chances at life a...

    3.5 "Lily knew she should look away, but she couldn't." The scene out her window was heart breaking, one solitary man grieving vigorously over a loved one's gravesite. "She knew sorrow could bring even the strongest person down", having lived it firsthand. Lily Handland had overc...

    The second book in The Adirondack Pinkertons series, The Heart of an Agent, is centered around Pinkerton agent Lily Handland who was one of the most interesting side characters in the book one, A Changed Agent, so I was interested to see where her story would lead. Very little of the P...

    This is book two of a series and while some characters are the same, there is enough background given that you can read this without reading the first one, if desired. This is Christian historical romance. There was not as much suspense in this one as the first of the series but that d...

    It's always nice to read a good historical romance novel now and then, with a moral code. Tracey is a Christian writer and I don't have to grimace when unpredictable scenes occur like so many romance novels provide. I found this one interesting as I am not familiar with the Adirondack ...

    This was my first read by this author but it definitely won't be my last. This is the second book in the The Adirondack Pinkertons series and while I haven't read the first book, and I definitely need to the book was self explanatory in mentioning past events to catch readers such as ...

    I got through 2/3 of this book and then just thought it was going too slow and I wanted to read something else. I might have been more into it if I had read the first book in the series first. In her job as a Pinkerton agent she did something that she didn?t want anyone to know about...
