Waiting On:
Title: Caught by Surprise
Author: Jen Turano
Publisher: Bethany House
Publication Date: July 31st, 2018

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. 

Why I'm Waiting:
Jen Turano is just an author who I can always go to, to feel happy after reading. I just recently devoured the first two books in this series and I honestly can not wait to read the third! There is just so much whit and humor and a sweet storied mixed in. The stories have a wonderful feel of an old 1950's rom-com.

What are you waiting for this week?


  1. Jen's covers are always SO darn cute! Whoever designs them does a splendid job with the "feel" of the story in the concepts. :)

    1. Rissi, I completely agree! The designer really does capture the story so well in this one picture. I just started reading this title, YAY, and the cover fits perfectly!


Thanks for stopping by. Leave a word, leave a line, I would love to hear what you have to say.
