Also Available In
Miss Temperance Flowerdew is on her way to work when a stranger suddenly grabs her off the street and sends her on a Chicago-bound train before she can figure out what happened.

When Mr. Gilbert Cavendish is called upon to rescue a missing woman, he follows the trail to Chicago only to discover that the woman is his good friend Temperance. Before they can discover who was behind the abduction, they're seen alone together by a New York society matron, putting their reputations at risk.

Gilbert is willing to propose marriage--except Temperance will have none of it. She's finally stepped out of the shadow of her relations and won't give up her independence. But when it becomes clear the misunderstanding in Chicago has escalated into a threat on her life and followed her to New York, accepting Gilbert's help in solving the mystery may lead to more than she ever could have dreamed.

Book 3!
4 stars By Rochelle, NSW, Oct 31 2018
As with Books 1 and 2 Jen Turano has woven humour, friendship, support, Suspence and falling in love together to create a great reading experience.
Temperance Flowerdew finally has the sun driving away the recent pain and loss in her life and filling it with love and restoration.

I'm usually a huge fan of Jen Turano's witty dialogue and bordering-on-ridiculous plots. But Caught by Surprise didn't work for me. It has many strengths: strong characters who are definitely individuals. Quirky individuals. A romance plot. A mysterysuspense subplot. Plenty of humour. A Christian message that's clear yet understated and not at all preachy. All delivered in Jen Turano's unique writing style.


I found the breakneck pace and non-stop dialogue left me feeling as though there was never time to breathe. 

Things kept happening. 

This is a novel,so things happening is good. But there was never a chance to have a break and gather my thoughts and decide if Temperance and Gilbert were really meant to be together. They both seem to have come to that conclusion, as does everyone of their (fictional) aquaintance, but I'm not convinced.

Their budding relationship was buried beneath that non-stop dialogue and breakneck pace. Not to mention plenty of misunderstandings and bullets.

Those who haven't read and loved Behind the Scenes and Out of the Ordinary will probably prefer to begin at the beginning. Otherwise they have very little chance of following the quirks of the many characters in Caught by Surprise.
