From bestselling author Kathleen Y’Barbo comes Millie’s Treasure, the second book in The Secret Lives of Will Tucker series, a new set of novels involving romance, adventure, and hidden identity.
Memphis 1890—Bookish heiress Millie Jean Cope is as clever as she is beautiful. Unfortunately, though adept at solving puzzles and cryptograms, she doesn’t realize her new fiance isn’t who he claims to be, but instead is a charming scoundrel. The infamous Will Tucker is presenting himself as a British gentleman, Sir William Trueck, though in reality he is a crafty criminal looking for a hidden map to a secret treasure.
Pinkerton agent Kyle Russell has been on Tucker’s trail for years. At last Kyle believes he has Tucker cornered, but he is uncertain whether the lovely woman on the con man’s arm is an unsuspecting victim or willing accomplice. Finding reasons to spend time with Millie is easy. Keeping himself from falling in love with her is another issue entirely.
A fun and entertaining story of how God can shine the light of truth on the most cryptic circumstances. 

My Review:
Millie's Treasure, book #2 in The Secret Lives of Will Tucker by Kathleen Y'Barbo takes us on an adventure with Kyle Russell and Millie Jean Cope.  Kyle is an inventor and Pinkerton agent.  Millie is a very forward thinking young lady who loves reading, science and things frowned upon for a young lady in the late 1800's.  On New Years Eve Millie goes up on the Cotton Exchange roof and comes across a mystery man who is testing his flying machine.  He quickly realizes that Millie is not an empty headed female and is drawn to her.
  Millie's adventures begin when he takes her for a ride on his flying machine.   

 I do not write spoiler reviews so I will let you read this highly entertaining book for yourself. You will be very glad you did.  I give this book 5 stars and plan to read book #1 in the series.

I was given an ebook of Millie's Treasrue by Harvest House and Netgalley for my honest review.  I was not paid in any way for this review.
