Book Review: Gentleman of Her Dreams, by Jen Turano
When Miss Charlotte Wilson asks God for a husband, she decides He must want her to pursue Mr. Hamilton Beckett, the catch of the season. The only problem? She's never actually met Hamilton. Fortunately, one of her oldest and dearest friends, Mr. Henry St. James—who has returned to New York after a two-year absence—does know Hamilton. Much to Henry's chagrin, Charlotte immediately ropes him into helping her meet Hamilton. However, none of her plans to catch Hamilton's eye go as she expected, and she is even more confused when her old feelings for Henry begin to resurrect themselves. In the midst of the mayhem Charlotte always seems to cause, she wonders if the gentleman of her dreams might be an entirely different man than she thought.
This novella is a companion to A Change of Fortune, Jen Turano's full-length debut novel, available fall 2012.
Short, sweet, and adorably funny, Gentleman of Her Dreams is a companion novella for the full length novel A Change of Fortune. However, it is not necessary to read one to understand the other. They are both fine on their own.
This quick read was an absolute delight and just what I was looking for. I love historical fiction, and every now and again I feel the need to get away from all the paranormal and adventure and just read a good clean romance. This short christian romance was exactly what I wanted. It was humorous, witty, and super cute. It was squeaky clean, too!
It is FREE right now on Amazon. Definitely worth the read.
