Caught by Surprise by Jen Turano

Posted on

I’ve just finished reading Caught by Surprise by the lovely Jen Turano and I loved it! For historical fiction fans who like a touch of humor, Jen’s your girl. I read this book while traveling and found myself laughing out loud while sandwiched between people on a plane, and then while riding in the backseat of my aunt’s Mazda. I’ve been a fan of historical fiction for years, but Jen’s use of humor sets her apart in my book. I became a fan when I first read her book A Change of Fortune, and honestly, I grabbed that one because I loved the cover so much. Then I loved the story so much. Now I’m hooked on Jen’s thYKRVVTNCwriting. Here’s a tidbit from Caught by Surprise:

Dear Miss Quill, or should I say, Miss G.?

I’m returning your shoe to you as a warning. Your identity has been compromised–your eavesdropping on a conversation you should not have overheard is now known to me–and you’d be well served to get out of the city as soon as possible.

Sincerely,

A dangerous gentleman

You’ve got to love a note that sends a shoe as a warning and is signed “A dangerous gentleman”! Such fun writing.  Hop over to Amazon to read more about this clever story.

Also, it looks like Jen’s got a novella for free on Kindle right now! Quick! Download!

ABOUT THE BOOK

Kariss meets Dr. Amy Garrett, who survived a brutal childhood attack in which the assailant was never found. Now Dr. Garrett wants her story written in a novel. Kariss wishes she could seek the advice of Special Agent Tigo Harris, but she broke off the relationship a few months prior and seeing him again would be too painful. She interviews Amy and conducts her own research, stepping unaware into a viper’s pit of danger. Tigo misses Kariss and wants her back, but he understands why she broke off their relationship. Instead, he concentrates on solving a car bombing and bringing the killer to justice. As Kariss’s new story attracts an onslaught of danger that she never expected, can Tigo save the woman he loves and find who wants her dead for writing about an unsolved cold-case?
