May I have your attention please?

I’ve just read my first book by Jen Turano.

And, now I must collect everything she’s ever published!!

Flights of Fancy, the first book in Jen Turano’s new American Heiresses series features an heiress in disguise, a quirky elderly uncle, rogue barnyard animals, four adorable ginger-haired children, a slimy villain and one dashing hero!

I instantly loved each character in this book! Isadora Delafield is adorably long-winded and has an explanation for everything. Ian MacKenzie is a gentle giant who’s worked his way to the top but is humble enough to remember where he came from. Every single supporting character from the children, to Uncle Amos and Aunt Birdie, to Beatrix and everyone in between were just so perfectly well-written. (And, I’m seriously hoping that one of the forthcoming books in this series will please be about Beatrix? Pretty please?!?!)

This book had action, tenderness, rich historical details, adventure and humor. This book had a ton of humor – honest to goodness laugh out loud humor!! The balance of the humorous scenes with a heartfelt or adventurous moment was so well done! The plot had several twists and turns to keep my Kindle’s electronic pages flipping! Each scene was so vividly described I felt like I was right there with them!

I can’t say much more, because…well…spoilers. But! One thing’s for sure. After reading Flights of Fancy, I will never look at someone named Nigel or Percival the same way ever again!

Five Well-Deserved Stars! I highly recommend this book…and I would read it again!! Flights of Fancy will be available January 1, 2019. You don’t want to miss this book!

I received an advanced copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers through NetGalley. A positive review was not required. All opinions expressed are completely my own.
