From the Back Cover
Miss Arabella Beckett, defender of the down-trodden women of America, is returning from her travels in support of the women’s suffrage movement when she makes a simple offer of assistance to a young woman in need. But things go sadly awry, and both ladies soon find themselves in dire need of rescue. Arabella, always loath to admit she needs help, is particularly reluctant to receive assistance from the arrogant, narrow-minded knight in shining armor who shows up just in time.
Private investigator extraordinaire Mr. Theodore Wilder is on an assignment that began as a favor to his good friend Hamilton Beckett, but swiftly evolved into a merry chase across the country. He is already in a less than pleasant mood, and when Hamilton’s sister turns out to have radical ideas and a fiercely independent streak, he’s at his wit’s end.
Much to their chagrin, Theodore and Arabella’s paths continue to cross when they return home to New York, but the most unusual feelings beginning to grow between them certainly can’t be anything serious. When the trouble Arabella accidentally stirred up in her travels follows her home and threatens her very life, the unlikely couple must face the possibility that they might have landed in the most peculiar circumstance of all: love.
Jen Turano, author of A Change of Fortune, is a graduate of the University of Akron with a degree in Clothing and Textiles. When she’s not writing, Jen can be found watching her teenage son participate in various activities, taking long walks with her husband and dog, socializing with friends, or delving into a good book. She is a member of ACFW and lives in a suburb of Denver, Colorado.
I am a big fan of Jen Turano’s writing.
All of her books read like a Three Stooges comedy skit, and I only say this with the utmost appreciation. In A Change of Fortune, we are introduced to the most delightful and hilarious characters, and I am so glad we get to revisit them again in A Most Peculiar Circumstance. In my mind’s eye, I can see the fast dialogue, slap stick action, and funny faces I’m sure the characters are making on a repeated basis. Just a whole lotta fun.
This book covers a lot and had many interesting layers to pick through. There is a bit of a mystery to delve into along the way, while our main characters are also digging a little deeper into themselves. Sometimes self-evaluation is a painful learning process, but the inner discoveries usually only make us better human beings in the long run. Many times we get in our own way the most, with our preconceived notions and short-sightedness. Bigger things await Annabella and Theodore then they could have ever imagined or dreamed.
Thankfully, I don’t have long to wait for the mayhem and merriment to continue. A Talent for Trouble (check out this gorgeous book cover!) comes out in October 2013, and that is not a moment too soon for my tastes. Keep up the good work Jen Turano, and I can’t wait to see the motion pictures that come out of this thing. We’re in this together, girl!
