After a Fashion by Jen Turano ~ Review

After a Fashion (A Class of Their Own #1)Review:

Harriet Peabody works as a hat girl, but she has a dream of refashioning dresses to sell at a reasonable price. But after an incident delivering a hat to a customer, she finds herself without a job.

Oliver Addleshaw is a rich businessman from one of the oldest and wealthiest families of the community. He doesn't want to marry, and is tired of the women who chase after him, trying to entrap him into matrimony. So he devises a plan, but he needs Harriet's help. Oliver Addleshaw tries to help Harriet by offering her a job, but he doesn't tell her what that job entails. Harriet is hesitant at first, but eventually accepts.

Will Harriet and Oliver find, what they didn't even know they were looking for?

This is an absolutely delightful read from beginning to end, and I knew I was in for adventure, that would have me grinning ear-to-ear, and I was right! I loved the full cast of fascinating characters, like Millie, who is trying to improve her vocabulary by reading the dictionary and trying new words, which leads her to say some downright funny things!

Harriet is a strong young woman, with a dream and a will not to be dependent on Oliver. She won't cow-tow to his every whim and challenges him at times. She won't be party to her aunt's crazy schemes, and she knows that she wants to help people, not just make money. I loved seeing the change in Oliver, and how having Harriet around made him rethink how he was running his business.

Overall, this was a wonderful book from beginning to end, filled with humor and memorable characters who brought a smile to my face. I don't want to give too much away, because somethings are best let wonderful surprises. I loved this delightful read, full of great characters, humor, action, and wit. Highly recommend!

Thank you to Ms. Turano for letting me read fabulous her book in exchange for an honest review!
