Heartwarming novel

Caught By Surprise Cover

Jen Turano has again written a wonderful story that has captured my imagination. Flights of Fancy, the first in the American Heiress series, is a delightful story about a young socialite during the late 1800's. Isadora Delafield is one of the wealthiest socialites of her time. Because of her wealth and status, she is much sought after. But her parents continue to pressure her to marry a middle aged duke whose reputation is less than stellar. Izzie runs away from the demands the duke makes on her to marry him. Which finds her seeking employment as a housekeeper. But the problem is, she has never had to run a household before. She doesn't even know how to boil water.

When Ian Mackenzie meets Izzie, he is leary of her lack of references and skill. Yet he is in desperate need of a housekeeper to maintain order while his aunt recuperates and he is away on business. When four orphans come to live with them, the adventures will make you laugh out loud. The story is light hearted and full of fun and adventure.

Such a well written story. One that draws you to the characters and the situations they find themselves in. I've read other books by Ms. Turano, but I think this one is the best so far. Delightful and fun.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher. All views expressed are my honest opinion.
