After Fashion by Jen Turner Turano

Thursday, March 26, 2015

22504489Miss Harriet Peabody dreams of the day she can open up a shop selling refashioned gowns to independent working women like herself. Unfortunately, when an errand for her millinery shop job goes sadly awry due to a difficult customer, she finds herself out of an income.

Mr. Oliver Addleshaw is on the verge of his biggest business deal yet when he learns his potential partner prefers to deal with men who are settled down and wed. When Oliver witnesses his ex not-quite-fiance cause the hapless Harriet to lose her job, he tries to make it up to her by enlisting her help in making a good impression on his business partner.

Harriet quickly finds her love of fashion can't make her fashionable. She'll never truly fit into Oliver's world, but just as she's ready to call off the fake relationship, fancy dinners, and elegant balls, a threat from her past forces both Oliver and Harriet to discover that love can come in the most surprising packages.

"Incorporating a bit of mayhem, a modicum of charm, and a dash of skullduggery into Harriet and Oliver's love story, Turano creates an engaging tale with a delightfully unexpected twist at the end."

My Thoughts:

This book is a wild ride from beginning to end, with jumping out of a moving carriage, coaxing a dog out from under tables, defining large words, and secretly being engaged. Harriet and Oliver, and the cast of characters in this book are bright and vivid. I was pulled in from  page one and read as slowly as possible as to savor each word. Jen became a quick favorite of mine and I wait patiently for her next book and move it up on my reading pile. 
This book is a must read for every historical romance fan and anyone who enjoys laughter as they read. I highly recommend it!
