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.

    I'll admit I picked up this book at a bargain price and didn't have grand expectations - but the back cover description sounded like the type of lighthearted Regency-type romance I usually enjoy, with a spiritual dimension that I look for in a good read. I curled up with this book while at home sick with a cold and so enjoyed it: a feisty heroine (and her even more independent friend), a dashing hero (with his own foibles), villains with some depth, a great setting (New York 1880), adorable children (each with their own distinct personalities).. I could go on and on. The story was perhaps a little predictable (if you've read a few Regencies and I have), but the descriptions, the characterizations, and the twists and turns of the lively plot kept me very entertained. I discovered I have read at least one other Jen Turano novel (this being her first with Bethany House) and will now seek out others. Do yourself a favor and pick it up when you see it - I highly recommend A CHANGE OF FORTUNE by Jen Turano.

    Surprisingly enjoyable!

    I know, that my title, 'Surprisingly enjoyable!' does not do a lot to bolster confidence in finding a good read, but... Hey, it's truthful. I wasn't looking for an 1800s period piece, which was good because outside of horse-drawn transportation issues and status-based seating charts, this story isn't very 1880s. The characters' approach toward life would have little trouble fitting into a contemporary-timed novel. For me, that was a good thing because when if comes to fiction, I like books that will either play a romantic comedy movie in my head or transport me to another place, not dark thrillers or heart-wrenching, angst-filled love stories.

    "A Change of Fortune" does a wonderful job delivering romantic comedy. The reader gets to laugh at obstacles and frustration rather than getting sucked into them.
