About the Book:
After a childhood as a street thief, Gabriella Goodhue thought she’d put her past behind her until a fellow resident at her boardinghouse is unjustly accused of theft. In the middle of breaking into a safe that holds the proof to prove her friend’s innocence, Gabriella is interrupted by Nicholas Quinn, the man she once considered her best friend–until he abandoned her.
After being taken under the wing of a professor who introduced him into society and named him as heir, Nicholas is living far removed from his childhood life of crime. As a favor to a friend, Nicholas agreed to help clear the name of an innocent woman, never imagining he’d be reunited with the girl he thought lost to him forever.
As Gabriella and Nicholas are thrown together into one intrigue after another, their childhood affection grows into more, but their newfound feelings are tested when truths about their past are revealed and danger follows their every step.
I always love how Jen Turano can make me laugh out loud while reading. This book carries her signature humor.
I did find this particular book surprisingly difficult to engage with at first. I almost felt as if I were being thrown right into the middle of a story and I set the book down and re-started it twice before I was able to immerse myself into Gabi and Nicholas’s world. Once I was engaged, the book flowed and the laughs followed.
If you need some light hearted, humor filled reading I can always recommend Jen Turano. Her brand of ridiculous and extravagant stories are delightful.
I received a free digital copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
