A Change of Fortune by Jen Turano

It's been a while since I've read a book that I just could not put down, but Jen Turano's novel was one of those kinds of books for me. I think it took me all of 5 days to read the book.

The main character Lady Eliza Sumner is hard not to like. The book is full of intrigue, adventure and action. By the second page, I knew it would be hard to put down.

If you have any interest in European aristocracy, you should like this book. Although I'll warn you that it is not set in Europe, but rather New York City when social standing was of the utmost importance.

The main characters fall into many mishaps while trying to reclaim Eliza's fortune, which had me giggling and thinking of them as a sort of sophisticated "Apple-Dumpling Gang". There is a very definite charm to the main characters.

I enjoyed this novel very much and highly recommend it.

Bethany House Publishers provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
