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.
    A Change of Fortune is the first book in Jen Turanos Ladies of Distinction series, but definitely isnt the first book Ive ever read by her. In fact, Ive already read both this novel and A Most Peculiar Circumstance, the second book in this series. But, since that was a couple of years ago and I had never picked up the third and fourth books, I decided it was finally time to finish the series, and I knew I should read the first two again just to refresh my memory, and because I love them. And I have to say, I had forgotten how fantastic this story is!!! I just finished Jens most recent seriesA Class of Their Ownearlier this year, and I have to say, I think her older series is even better than the new!

    Lady Eliza Sumner is just the cutest character! I feel so bad for her because of all that has transpired leading up to this novel, but I couldnt help loving her through the twists and turns her unfortunate circumstances took her. She is bright, spunky, and just the sweetest little thing, and I love the way she faces every challenge head on. She embarks on so many wonderful adventures throughout the course of this novel, the most important being the one that leads her to Mr. Hamilton Beckett, because after that, the rest is history.

    Hamilton Beckett is such a fun character to get to know! He is such a perfect gentleman, yet at the same time the most wonderful father and friend in the whole world, and I just loved getting to watch his feelings for Eliza grow and thrive. Besides that, I absolutely loved seeing him interact with his perfectly adorable children, as it was one of the sweetest parts of this book. His little daughter and son were a great source of merriment for me throughout this story, and I loved watching him be a doting father to them.

    All in all, I really loved this book, possibly even more than the first time I read it, and I stand by my decision to give it all five bookshelves. It has had a place on my all-time favorites list for quite some time, and I dont think it will be leaving anytime soon. Plus, Im super excited to re-read the second book in the series, and to read the third and the fourth for the first time! And, I highly recommend this series, and really any of Jens novels, as they are fantastic and always a wonderful source of laughter, adventure, and romance!

    "A Change of Fortune" is a romantic comedy set in 1880. The main characters were nice, interesting people with a good sense of humor. The hero, heroine, and friends end up in a series of silly situations during which they get to know and care about each other. There were some phrases that were too modern and some behavior that was improbable for the time (which created humor). But since it's a comedy, I don't tend to care.

    There was no sex or bad language. Overall, I'd recommend this humorous novel.
