Funny, Delightful, Romantic Suspense (5 Stars)
A Most Peculiar Circumstance by Jen Turano
Beautiful, strong-willed Arabella Beckett has landed herself in jail! Of course, it was all an innocent mistake, but jail nonetheless. She has been traveling across the country speaking at women’s suffrage conferences, and she was delayed by an unexpected side trip. Her family back home was very concerned, so they got their son’s friend, and famous private detective, Theodore Wilder, to go on a search for her. It took him quite a while and when he did find her they butted heads quite frequently. It was so comical reading about all their conversations and sometimes, lack there of, and then there was all the other trouble that Arabella kept getting into! It was driving Theodore crazy!
Arabella was intent on helping women get their rights and helping them improve their lives, only later did she realize as she was sitting in jail again, that her attempts were totally off base. She was accused of being judgmental and that hurt and brought her back to God asking for His help in changing and truly helping the women that needed it most. Of course, she has a crew of men out to do her harm and it’s almost more than Theodore can do to keep tabs on her while trying to track down the criminals. I’ll not say anymore, other than you’ll love this book!
This is wonderful mixture of several genres that the author brought together beautifully. It’s historical, suspenseful, romantic, and funny! I can’t wait to read other books by this author.
