Book Review: Storing Up Trouble

Book Review: Storing Up Trouble

About the Book:

When Miss Beatrix Waterbury’s Chicago-bound train ride is interrupted by a heist, Mr. Norman Nesbit, a man of science who believes his research was the target of the heist, comes to her aid. Despite the fact that they immediately butt heads, they join forces to make a quick escape.

Upon her arrival in Chicago, Beatrix is surprised to discover her supposedly querulous Aunt Gladys shares her own suffragette passions. Encouraged by Gladys to leave her sheltered world, Beatrix begins working as a salesclerk at the Marshall Field and Company department store. When she again encounters Norman on a shopping expedition, he is quickly swept up in the havoc she always seems to attract.

But when another attempt is made to part Norman from his research papers, and it becomes clear Beatrix’s safety is also at risk, they soon discover the curious way feelings can grow between two very different people in the midst of chaos.

My Thoughts:

I don’t know how she does it, but Jen Turano has a talent for writing absolutely ridiculous stories that I still love to read. I suppose it is the foundation of deep truth and real relationship then infused with laugh out loud humor: Comic relief weaving into the threads of real life.

Storing Up Trouble was another delightful tale in the American Heiress series. And while it can stand alone, why would you deprive yourself of the joy of all three books?

I received a free digital copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
