I have about a dozen or so go-to authors that I wouldn't hesitate to buy before reading or previewing and Tracie is one of them. Her stories always make me think and her characters are always so real with the quirks and personalities that come to life off the page. Everlasting Love, the third novel is the Brides of Seattle series is available now to finish out the series started with Steadfast Love and continued with Refining Fire this past summer. This is my favorite cover in the series yet! Grab your copy now!

Jen Turano is an author that makes me smile and I just delight in falling between the pages of her creatively witty stories set in the regal 1880s New York. These feminist creatures are intelligent and fun and I'd love to know them in person, but on the page is the second best. I cannot wait to see what happens next and then head back to catch the stories I've missed.

Jen is such a humorous author and I love the witty characters that jump off her pages. I am soon to read After a Fashion as I some how missed getting myself a copy of that one (had a baby or some such life chaos). I delighted in every page of In Good Company. It is a different stream than her Ladies of Distinction series, but I get the feeling that the series of A Class of Their Own is going to be just as entertaining.
Millie is an awesome, yet slightly complicated character. She reminds me of a character named Sarah from another book I read, but only faintly. Millie is more of what would happen to Sarah later type of situation. Yet, there is also a slight bit of Eliza in her, yet different. I really liked getting to know her on the page. I'm eager to read more about her friends in the rest of the series.

Since then I have been delighted with all the stories in the Ladies of Distinction series and now I'm finding myself to have the same opinion of the A Class of Their Own series. Through a fluke I actually was able to read In Good Company (my review), the second in the Class of Their Own series before I finished After a Fashion and while they can easily stand on their own as independent reads, they do build the story with friend (and friendly!) characters. In November 2012, I was given the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance Best Tour Review for the first Ladies of Distinction novel and prequel from Jen Turano in A Change of Fortune and Gentlemen of Her Dreams. You might want to see that review, back here.
Every page turned entertained me with witty humor and amusing characters as well as a bit of mystery. I wouldn't hesitate to buy more of Turano's books title unseen and recommend them to friends. Hopefully I can express my opinions without giving too much away of the plot; however, I would love for you to know how this story is an excellent storytelling of an orphan romance. Every girl imagines if she was without parents to be a princess. Whether one falls into a pretend life of a princess, or perhaps becomes one, or perhaps discovers she is in fact a missing one... It's a magical tale of romance, mystery, and intrigue in a fun and attractive package.
If you enjoy the time frame of novels such as this, you might find another recommendation of note in my list of early 20th century romance titles in the picture lists.
I love Jen Turano's books. She has a way of keeping me turning the pages and wishing there were more when the book is done. She's a fantastic storyteller and I look forward to her next book!
