Rollicking Debut from an Exciting New Author

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.

A pleasant holiday read
5 stars By Nicole, Jul 12 2017
A friend recommended this author so I decided to give her first book a go while on holidays. It was a perfect beach read. Enjoyable storyline, bit of intrigue, lovely romance and satisfying ending. I'll be checking out other books she's written as well.

a quirky, fun book.
5 stars By Ibu Guru, Apr 01 2017
Most of the time, there were plenty of laughs to be had in this book.  The negative things were not major, so the final feel of it is good, unlike the sequel, a Most Peculiar circumstance, that has some unpleasant insanity at the end which leaves a "bitter taste".

Jen Turano's debut, "A Change of Fortune: Ladies of Distinction", follows the lives of  Eliza Sumner and Hamilton Beckett in New York City. I really enjoyed reading this book and getting to know Turano's characters. If the first book in Turano's "Ladies of Distinction" series is anything to go by, I can't wait to read the rest!
