A Change of Fortune by Jen TuranoOn the heels of her father’s death, Lady Eliza Sumner is jilted by her fiance when her fortune is stolen from her. Scandal surrounds the missing money, as many believe that her father lost the money through gambling, but Eliza knows better and refuses to believe the untruths being spread about her family. Instead she chooses to follow the man her father trusted most and whom she believes betrayed them.

Lady Eliza travels from England and disguises herself as a governess, Miss Watson, so that she can keep an eye out for the thief in New York society. She desires her true identity to remain a secret, but when she is put in the path of Mr. Hamilton Beckett, everything changes.

Hamilton is a widower with two small children who is suspicious that something is wrong in his business. As a wealthy widower, all of society is attempting to match him with anyone of the female persuasion ~ but he has no desire to be trapped by anyone of them. When he meets the governess, ‘Miss Watson’, he is strangely intrigued by her curious nature.

The two discover that the person they are searching for is one and the same, so they work together to uncover the deception he has 

My Thoughts on A Change of Fortune

Set in 1880 New York society, A Change of Fortune is the first in the Ladies of Distinction series - and a wonderful beginning. I am certain that we were introduced to a character {or two in this book that will be seen in future books, and I cannot wait until they are released – definitely ones I will be keeping an eye out for.

A Change of Fortune isn’t a ‘light’ fluff novel, but rather shows a development of the characters both spiritually and relationally. The quirky friendships that grow between characters are enjoyable and the banter between others just makes you smile. There is humor, suspense, romance and more to keep you turning pages until the wee hours of the morning.

If there is one book that you pick up this year {and a new author as well}, A Change of Fortune is one that you should add to your cart right away. Jen Turano’s debut novel, A Change of Fortune, is not only captivating, but one that you will want to pull out to read again and again.
