by Jen Turano
Oh my goodness! It’s been a while since I wanted to cry when a book ended!!! What a great read! This is the first book that I have read by Jen Turano. I absolutely recommend this book.
Harriet (I am sorry, but that is the most dreadful name!) finds herself in quite the pickle when she, as a hat lady, delivers some to a spoiled family. After multiple series of unforeseen events, she finds herself engaged to the richest man in New York. Of course, it is just an arrangement and not a real engagement. You can probably guess the rest of the story from there (;
I found Jen’s insertion of funny characters (people and animals) to be amusing and a fun part of the story. It was definitely ridiculous, but in a great way!!!! You find yourself lost in the story and the characters are absolutely lovely. Often times when reading, I find that I am only attached to one or two, at most. Each character was interesting and had their own storyline that I cared to learn more about.
I want to add that there is not a strong Christian storyline. God is mentioned and prayed to, but that isn’t a huge part of the story. That would be my only recommendation for future books.
When I told Jen that I had not read any of her books before, she replied, “Before you check out any of my other books, if you have an e-reader, there is a free prequel novella out there – Gentleman of Her Dreams – it’s short, but a complete story and introduces you to characters from the first series – The Ladies of Distinction.”
