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.

Publisher's Description

Lady Eliza Sumner is on a mission. After losing her family, her fiance, 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.

"Set in New York City circa 1880, Turano's historical romance has witty dialogue, a spunky heroine, a bounty of humor, and a fast-paced plot. There are wonderful secondary characters, too, including an ankle-biting boy, a relentlessly matchmaking mother, and a full cast of despicable villains. A Change of Fortune will make a delightful addition to any library." --Booklist (starred review)

"Turano's charming story of losing and gaining both wealth and love in 1880s New York City will certainly please fans of witty and classic romance stories."--RT Book Review

"[A] delightfully lighthearted debut novel."--Desert News

    This review was written for A Change of Fortune.
    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.

    This review was written for 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.

    This review was written for A Change of Fortune.
    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.
