A Most Peculiar Circumstance | Book Review

Arabella Beckett is a head-strong, opinionated, young lady who is a fighter for women’s rights which take her down a path she never expected.  She is also the sister of Hamilton Beckett, the wealthy aristocrat from Jen Turano’s previous book A Change of Fortune. 

In her new book A Most Peculiar Circumstance, Jen Turano continues her entertaining historical romance with a continuation of the Beckett family story, but this time, focusing on the younger sister Arabella.

We first meet Arabella while she is sitting in a jail cell because she got caught up in a problem that turned out to be more than she thought.  Entering to be her savior is the noble, but aloof, Theodore Wilder.  He has been sent to find Arabella so that she may attend her brother’s wedding, but he never expected the wild ride it would be just to track her down. 

Arabella is always ready to help a suffering woman but this time she may have bit off more than she can chew.  She innocently fell upon a prostitution ring and thought that when she left Gilmon Ill that it was left behind also.  Little did she know that some things would follow her all the way home. 

I have to say that I am in LOVE with Jen Turano’s books.  They are filled with romance, twists and turns and even some laughs here and there.  They are very well written and I can fly right through her books.  There are a few books for me that I am sad when they finish and Jen Turano’s books are one of the few. 

I was so happy to see that she had the same characters as A Change of Fortune because I enjoyed watching them develop and evolve as the story went along and this book was no different.

 Turano is an amazing writer and I can’t wait till her next book.
