Book blurb: Miss Temperance Flowerdew is on her way to work when a stranger suddenly grabs her off the street and sends her on a Chicago-bound train before she can figure out what happened.
When Mr. Gilbert Cavendish is called upon to rescue a missing woman, he follows the trail to Chicago only to discover that the woman is his good friend Temperance. Before they can discover who was behind the abduction, they’re seen alone together by a New York society matron, putting their reputations at risk.
Gilbert is willing to propose marriage–except Temperance will have none of it. She’s finally stepped out of the shadow of her relations and won’t give up her independence. But when it becomes clear the misunderstanding in Chicago has escalated into a threat on her life and followed her to New York, accepting Gilbert’s help in solving the mystery may lead to more than she ever could have dreamed.
Review: CAUGHT BY SURPRISE is book three in the Apart from the Crowd series by Jen Turano. Jen has outdone herself again. She has written another book that will have you in stitches. I love the laughter, determination, suspense and much more. Miss Temperance Flowerdew is a hoot. So uniquely herself doesn’t give a hoot what others think. I loved her so. Mr. Gilbert Cavendish like a knight and shining armor. A wonderful cast of characters that will have you wanting more and more. I couldn’t turn the pages quick enough. Be sure to grab your glass of sweet tea and kick back with this most delightful book. Be sure to get your copy of CAUGHT BY SURPRISE today. It would also make a great gift. I received a complementary copy of this book. This review is my honest opinion. 5 stars! I would give it more if I could.
