Back Cover...

Miss Harriet Peabody dreams of the day she can open up a shop selling refashioned gowns to independent working women like herself. Unfortunately, when an errand for her millinery shop job goes sadly awry due to a difficult customer, she finds herself out of an income.

Mr. Oliver Addleshaw is on the verge of his biggest business deal yet when he learns his potential partner prefers to deal with men who are settled down and wed. When Oliver witnesses his ex not-quite-fiance cause the hapless Harriet to lose her job, he tries to make it up to her by enlisting her help in making a good impression on his business partner.

Harriet quickly finds her love of fashion can't make her fashionable. She'll never truly fit into Oliver's world, but just as she's ready to call off the fake relationship, fancy dinners, and elegant balls, a threat from her past forces both Oliver and Harriet to discover that love can come in the most surprising packages.

What I Loved...

After A Fashion is the reason I will read 10 good books in search of one great book. After A Fashion is one great book. I am a fan of Jen Turano and if you are too, After A Fashion won't disappoint.

Harriet is my kind of heroine. She knows what she wants and takes us along with her on a romantic, hilarious and faith filled journey to get it.

What I Liked...

Oliver isn't my favorite Turano hero, but I liked him alot. He is a mix of confidence, trouble, romance and no nonsense.


LOVE LOVE LOVE the cover. In fact, it is my favorite Turano cover.

While I most certainly loved this book, I did want to mention that I found a few bits of the plot obvious and as soon as I read it, I knew what was going to happen later on. I like surprise and knowing what to expect can make a book drag on and boring to read. However there was enough really other good stuff going on with characters and the plot to make me think of it as a minor annoyance rather than a huge nuisance.

I am most anxiously anticipating the next book in the series.
