"When Miss Beatrix Waterbury's Chicago-bound train ride is interrupted by a heist, Mr. Norman Nesbit, a man of science who believes his research was the target of the heist, comes to her aid. Despite the fact that they immediately butt heads, they join forces to make a quick escape.
Upon her arrival in Chicago, Beatrix is surprised to discover her supposedly querulous Aunt Gladys shares her own suffragette passions. Encouraged by Gladys to leave her sheltered world, Beatrix begins working as a salesclerk at the Marshall Field and Company department store. When she again encounters Norman on a shopping expedition, he is quickly swept up in the havoc she always seems to attract.
But when another attempt is made to part Norman from his research papers, and it becomes clear Beatrix's safety is also at risk, they soon discover the curious way feelings can grow between two very different people in the midst of chaos."
Storing Up Trouble (American Heiresses, Book 3), by Jen Turano, is an absolutely delightful novel from beginning to end! This distinctive story is not to be missed! Generously overflowing with charm, humor, and romance, this utterly engaging novel is intriguing, uplifting, and thoroughly entertaining.
With refreshingly original characters, uniquely memorable plot points, and historically appealing settings, Ms. Turano has crafted a book that is wonderfully endearing. It is certainly a pleasure to spend time with the unforgettable characters featured within this novel. They are thoughtful, interesting, and undeniably likable. And the situations in which they find themselves are unexpectedly funny and truly unconventional. Whether in a grand home, a retail store, a train car, or even a jail cell, the characters never fail to captivate and surprise the reader page after page.
With her remarkable talent for masterfully weaving a flourish of words as an expert designer of sentences, Ms. Turano has once again fashioned a story that is dressed in the beauty of language, embellished with the allure of whimsy, and adorned with the promises of romance. Storing Up Trouble is a genuinely special novel that welcomes the reader to discover inspiration within the joyful comfort of its pages. I recommend it wholeheartedly.
