Caught by Surprise by Jen Turnano ~ Review

Lucie's Review:

Miss Temperance Flowerdew becomes a victim of mistaken identity when she is kidnapped and put on a train headed for Chicago.

Mr. Gilbert Cavendish is hired to rescue Miss Flowerdew, but when he finally catches up to her in Chicago, they are seen alone together damaging her reputation. Gilbert proposes, but Temperance is done with being the victim and wants to get to the bottom of the kidnapping scheme once and for all.

Will Gilbert and Temperance be able to untangle the mystery, and get to the bottom of their feelings or each other?

I love Jen Turano's books, and this one was no exception. Fun from the start with Ms. Turano's signature larger than life characters, this was fast paced read that I didn't want to put down.

Temperance was a character in the two previous book sin the series, and she has really started to come out of her shell and into her own. Temperance is clever and creative, and doesn't like the rich lifestyle that she came from. She loves teaching music, and she appreciates the ladies at the school who have become like a family to her.

Gilbert is a man used to strict schedules and protocols, he is very determined, intelligent, and gallant. I like how Gilbert wants to come to Temperance's rescue, he has good friends and isn't afraid to ask for advice. There is a lot of good interaction between him and Temperance as they get reacquainted.

Overall, this is a fun-packed hilarious adventure, with great characters. I liked the mystery, and that Temperance and Gilbert are people of faith who see God working in their lives. The dialog can be a bit wordy sometimes. This book is engaging, entertaining, and I loved revisiting favorite characters from past books! Fantastic read, with a great ending!
