Review: A Change of Fortune
Author: Jen Turano
Rollicking Debut from an Exciting New Author
Lady Eliza Sumner is on a mission. After losing her family, her fiancé, and her faith, the disappearance of her fortune is the last straw. Now, masquerading as Miss Eliza Sumner, governess-at-large, she’s determined to find the man who ran off with her fortune, reclaim the money, and head straight back to London.
Much to Mr. Hamilton Beckett’s chagrin, all the eyes of New York society–all the female ones, at least–are on him. Unfortunately for all the matchmaking mothers and eligible daughters, he has no plans to marry again, especially with his hands full keeping his business afloat and raising his two children alone.
When Eliza’s hapless attempts to regain her fortune put her right in Hamilton’s path, sparks instantly begin to fly. The discovery of a common nemesis causes them to join forces, but with all their plans falling by the wayside and their enemies getting the better of them, it will take a riot of complications for Hamilton and Eliza to realize that God just might have had a better plan in mind all along.
When all of Hamilton’s and Eliza’s best-laid plans fall by the wayside, it will take a riot of complications for them to realize that God just might have had a better plan in mind all along.
I loved this one. It was a captivator for sure. Funny and serious at the same time.
This is one of my favorite quotes:
“He released a breath and made for the door, pausing in the hallway when he couldn’t find a trace of her.
“She went that way,” Piper said from the stairwell, pointing down the hall.
“Thank you, Piper, but I must remind you that you are not allowed to eavesdrop on people”
“What does eavesdrop mean?”
“Listening in on conversations you’re not meant to hear,” he said before setting his sights on the corridor.
“But you weren’t saying anything,” Piper called after him.
Hamilton swallowed a laugh and continued forward….”
(I just loved that.)
I really enjoyed reading this book and I hope you do to, of you decide to read it.
