A Change of Fortune~Review

Bonjour Bloggettes and Bloggies!! 

Today I am letting you in on another fun book sent to me to review!  It is "A Change of Fortune" by Jen Turano (a new author to me!)  I am by no means picky about the types of books I will read, it can range from Historical NonFiction to Little House on the Prarie (reading with my darling Callie who is 5) and everything in between.  However I must say my feminine genes favor reading romances, so I was very excited to read another one!  I have to say I loved the beginning of this book!  Unlike most novels that can be slow to start, this one started of sprinting, and you have no problems jumping right in!  The backstory: It is 1880 in New York, and Lady Eliza Sumner has encountered some unfortunate luck in her life in England, so she has traveled to America to try and fix her present/future situation.  It follows her journey to find her faith, fortune, and maybe even a fiance?! <3  This is a very enjoyable clean romantic story with a light touch of mystery.  The reason for four stars instead of five is that 3/4 of the way through the story; more characters are thrown into the plot that are unneccessary, and in my mind ruined a smooth running story.  Sometimes its better to have some unanswered questions instead of overtelling.  Otherwise the characters and the plot are extremely fun and you will find yourself laughing over male/female banter that is very relatable to present day!  Overall a great read that is witty and entertaining!  I will definetly consider this author again in the future.
