Out of the Ordinary by Jen Turano ~ Review

Out of the Ordinary (Apart From the Crowd, #2)Lucie's Review:

I thoroughly enjoyed this book from beginning to end, a fun-filled, fast-paced read, full of humorous situations.

Gertrude Cadwalader is the most patient and long suffering lady's companion ever. Her employer, Mrs. Davenport considers herself a fashion designer and dresses Gertrude in her overdone and impractical creations. Gertrude does her best to keep Mrs. Davenport out of trouble, but her employer can be sneaky. While Gertrude and Mrs. Davenport are on Harrison Sinclair's yacht to celebrate Permilia and Asher's engagement, Gertrude goes looking for Mrs. Davenport who has disappeared again, when her impractical dress gets stuck and Harrison Sinclair comes to her aid.

Gertrude makes a memorable first impression on Harrison, he admires the grace with which she handles the situations that she is thrust into by Mrs Davenport. He himself has a unique sense of style, and even though Asher keeps suggesting to him that he and Gertrude would be great to together he keeps insisting that they are only friends, even though he keeps coming to her aid.

I love Gertrude, she holds her head high in awkward situations that would completely destroy a lesser woman. She is a great friend and an encourager to her friends, she is quick to forgive and to run to her friends' aid. She is kind and thoughtful towards others, but also has a backbone.

This book is full of colorful characters, with delightful interactions and comedies of error. I loved the larger than life characters, revisiting old friends and meeting new ones. The pages flew by and I couldn't keep a smile from my face. A fantastic read from beginning to end!
