Book Review - A CHANGE OF FORTUNE by Jen Turano

A Change of Fortune
Five stars.

This is a delightful romance! Humor, suspense, and pathos combine to make this a real seller, in my own oh-so-humble opinion.

How much trouble can one British heiress cheated out of her inheritance get into?

I'm not far into this book, but let me tell you a little of what has happened so far: (1) Lady Eliza has disguised herself as a pudgy, stodgy governess in colonial America; (2) the disguise fails when the additional padding she puts under her dress comes loose and drops around her ankles as she exits a formal dinner she shouldn't have been at to begin with; (3) she gets thrown in jail after she breaks into a house.

Is that the end of her troubles? Oh, no. Not nearly.

I have spent my time, book in hand, alternating between holding my breath and chortling quietly so as to not wake my sleeping hubby.

What a fun book! Available November 1 from ChristianbooksAmazon, and Barnes and Nobel.
