Ida Kate Deming’s mama died when she was just a little girl. Now her Papa is getting a mail order bride, which will make her family complete. Ida will get a mama, friend, and baby sister all in one. She loves the cheery woman who has come to live them and thinks life is perfect. Then one day, Ida finds a piece of paper that begins to make her suspicious of their new family member. With only her wits to help her, Ida must find out what secret her stepmother is keeping before it’s too late.
This book was very entertaining. I loved the fact that they set the mystery in the time of cowboys and prairie towns. If you liked Circle of Fire you’ll enjoy this mystery.
