This was fantastic as always. There is always such wit and humor. Then you get romance and a little suspense. I love Harriet Peabody and Oliver Addleshaw. They work so well together. It was so much fun to read. I received a copy of this book from the author and from the Book Club Network. I so look forward to her next book.
After years of working in a millinery shop, Miss Harriet Peabody dreams of the day when she’ll open up her own shop and sell re-fashioned gowns to independent working women like herself. When a delivery errand goes sadly awry, her job–and her chance at saving enough for her shop–is at stake all due to a rather unfortunate misunderstanding with a customer.
Mr. Oliver Addleshaw enjoys a certain position in society, but his real aim is to follow in the footsteps of men like Cornelius Vanderbilt. On the verge of his biggest business deal yet, he learns his potential partner prefers to deal with men who are settled down and respectably married. As matters stand, Oliver’s ex not-quite-fiance recently became unhinged and lost a poor shop girl her job. Oliver feels bad for the hapless Harriet and, hoping to kill two birds with one stone, asks for her help in making a good impression in his business deal.Jen Turano, author of five books, is a graduate of the University of Akron with a degree in clothing and textiles.
