Review: A Change of Fortune (Ladies of Distinction #1) by Jen Turano

A Change of Fortune (Ladies of Distinction, #1)


Lady Eliza Sumner is on a mission. Her fortune was the last thing she had left after losing her father, her fiancĂ©, and her faith. Now, masquerading as Miss Eliza Sumner, governess-at-large, she's determined to find the man who ran off with her fortune, reclaim the money, and head straight back to London. 

Mr. Hamilton Beckett, much to his chagrin, is the catch of the season, and all the eyes of New York society—all the female ones, at least—are on him. He has no plans to marry again, especially since his hands are full keeping his business afloat while raising his two children alone. 

Eliza's hapless attempts to regain her fortune unexpectedly put her right in Hamilton's path. The discovery of a common nemesis causes them to join forces and, before she knows it, Eliza has a whole retinue of people helping her. Eliza's determination not to trust anyone weakens when everyone's antics and bumbling efforts to assist her make her wonder if there might be more important things than her fortune and independence. 

When all of Hamilton's and Eliza's best-laid plans fall by the wayside, it will take a riot of complications for them to realize that God just might have had a better plan in mind all along.


I loved it <3 It was a delightful read, I don't remember laughing so much while reading a book. Miss Eliza and Agatha both are lovely characters. Mr. and Mr. Beckett are no less interesting. There is so much going on that it was difficult to keep up with it and that just made it so much more fun to read. A lot of twists and turns and fun moments which kept me interested through out the book. I enjoyed reading it and would recommend to anyone who enjoys a good historical fiction.
