Product Description

After years of working in a millinery shop, Miss Harriet Peabody dreams of the day when she'll open up her own shop and sell re-fashioned gowns to independent working women like herself. When a delivery errand goes sadly awry, her job--and her chance at saving enough for her shop--is at stake all due to a rather unfortunate misunderstanding with a customer.

Mr. Oliver Addleshaw enjoys a certain position in society, but his real aim is to follow in the footsteps of men like Cornelius Vanderbilt. On the verge of his biggest business deal yet, he learns his potential partner prefers to deal with men who are settled down and respectably married. As matters stand, Oliver's ex not-quite-fiance recently became unhinged and lost a poor shop girl her job. Oliver feels bad for the hapless Harriet and, hoping to kill two birds with one stone, asks for her help in making a good impression in his business deal.

Publisher's Description

Miss 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.

    Jen Turano's books are ones I really enjoy reading. This book is full of charm, romance and the twists and turns.. they make me smile and keep guessing how it's going to turn out. A fake relationship, fancy dinners, elegant balls, a threat, I never would have thought a love of fashion could be so dangerous to a sweet hat girl just trying to do her job. I put this delightful historical fiction on my favorite list! I received a copy of the book from bookfun.org for my honest opinion.

    Jen Turano is one of those authors whom you go to when you need a good laugh. Her writing style is funny and though sometimes the characters go a bit overboard, you will never leave without cracking a smile. After A Fashion is the first in a new series, A Class of Their Own, and I found it delightful.

    Harriet is a young lady who I would have loved to know. She is fun, an entrepreneur in her own right, and just happens to catch the eye of a businessman with plenty of means. Of course, they strike up a deal that might end up in both of them falling in love! Oliver, the hero of the story, is quite intriguing but I have to admit, one of the reasons I loved this book would have to be Buford, the gigantic dog of Oliver's! A big baby but he sure comes in handy at times :)

    Again, an entertaining novel that I enjoyed. Thank you Jen for a good laugh when I needed it!

    After a Fashion is a fun and quirky book. It is an easy and enjoyable read. The story-line is believeable and the characters engaging. There are twists and turns, humor, romance and fun along the way. I enjoy Jen Turano's books and this one did not let me down.

    Oh, my goodness--Jen Turano is at it again. Another rollickingly humorous historical romance. Ms. Turano definitely loves the twists and turns in life and throws them hither, thither, and yon into her books. The experts tell authors to give their heroes and heroines a few faults--but Jen, you need to remember--only a few. It seems Harriet Peabody and Oliver Addleshaw wound up with more than their fair share.

    Due to circumstances beyond her control, Harriet winds up agreeing to be Mr. Addleshaw's temporary fiance'e in order to impress the Duke of Westmoore, but all the problems to overcome might instead overwhelm them. A temperamental former almost-fiance'e, a conniving parental aunt, a disgruntled fired employee, and a cowardly dog might just undo the whole plan. Not to mention Oliver's slightly shady past business dealings is making Jen's touchy temper get away from her.

    It could take a miracle or two to get our characters through this mess.

    I chortled and smirked my way through this book, and I think you will too.

    I received this book free in return for an honest review.
