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.

kingsdaughter1611ILAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Enjoyable Start to a New SeriesMay 3, 2016kingsdaughter1611ILAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Jen 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!

Anne Baxter CampbellWillows, CAAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Miles of Smiles in this one!August 26, 2015Anne Baxter CampbellWillows, CAAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5Oh, 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.
