A Surprising & Entertaining Series Conclusion | Caught By Surprise by Jen Turano


After years of hiding her true nature, Miss Temperance Flowerdew is finally enjoying freedom outside of the shadow of her relations, so the last thing she expected on her way to work was to be grabbed off the street by a stranger and put on a train bound for Chicago.

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 her abduction, they're spotted alone together by a New York society matron, putting their reputations at risk.

Even though Gilbert is willing to propose marriage, Temperance is determined not to lose her newfound independence. But when the misunderstanding in Chicago escalates into a threat on her life, accepting Gilbert's help in solving the mystery may lead to more than she ever could have dreamed.

Jen Turano’s Apart From the Crowd series comes to a surprising and entertaining conclusion with Caught By Surprise, as Temperance Flowerdew is kidnapped and sent to Chicago. And because the risk to her life is just not enough drama (ha!), her reputation (and subsequently, her independence) comes under attack when Gilbert Cavendish rescues. The pair has a number of obstacles to overcome, to be sure.

It is always a pleasure to read one of Turano’s novel, of course. Plenty of humorous moments, quirky antics, and just over-the-top, dramatic fun can be found in the pages of Caught By Surprise. Knowing Temperance from previous novels (and catching up with this series’ characters) just made it even more enjoyable. I definitely recommend this book (and series!) to readers in need of a pick-me-up sort of historical read.

Thanks to Jen Turano and Bethany House, I received a complimentary copy of Caught By Surprise and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
