Product Description

Lady Eliza Sumner is on a mission. Her fortune was the last thing she had left after losing her father, her fiance, and her faith. 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.

Mr. Hamilton Beckett, much to his chagrin, is the catch of the season, and all the eyes of New York society--all the female ones, at least--are on him. He has no plans to marry again, especially since his hands are full keeping his business afloat while raising his two children alone.

Eliza's hapless attempts to regain her fortune unexpectedly put her right in Hamilton's path. The discovery of a common nemesis causes them to join forces and, before she knows it, Eliza has a whole retinue of people helping her. Eliza's determination not to trust anyone weakens when everyone's antics and bumbling efforts to assist her make her wonder if there might be more important things than her fortune and independence. 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.

    This is my first book by Jen Turano, but it will not be my last. It was a fun book to read and I enjoyed the humor immensely. The dialog was great, though perhaps a bit modern in a place or two. The beginning and end of the book were very fast-moving and interesting. I thought the story bogged down a bit in the middle, but that could have been just me.

    I love the characters. Both the major and many minor characters were interesting and seemed liked real people. They often reminded me of people I have met along my path in life, so I thought they were very relatable. The plotline was a little far-fetched in places, but that added to the fun of the novel, rather than detracting from it.

    This is a story of the upper class in New York City in the 1880s. If youd like a fun, historical book, I recommend A Change of Fortune.

    Ms. Eliza Sumner traveled from Britain to American, chasing a man who stole her family fortune. Eliza comes from an aristocratic family whose name has been tarnished by the man whom stole her fortune. She has disguised herself as an unattractive governess for Mrs. Watson in order to track this man in efforts to restore her familys name. In her efforts to do so, she would form an unlikely friendship with Ms. Agatha Watson, an older daughter of the Watsons. Their fates would soon be intertwined with those of Mr. Hamilton Beckett and his brother Zayne. The mysteries would begin overlapping leading their searches in similar directions. Will these cases bring them closer together or have their pasts made it so they truly can trust no one and only hinder each other?

    Delightful read! I am thankful that this book is part of a series, because I cannot wait to read her next book. Gentleman of Her Dreams (the novella that starts this series) gives an amazing insight into this world and brings us into the opening of this book. This book dives right in and sets a fast pace right from the start. It is full of wit a charm with strong characters and a plot that does not disappoint.
