To Spark a Match | Book Review


"Turano takes readers on a lighthearted romp through matchmaking season . . . . This is a delight."
--Publishers Weekly on A Match in the Making

After five unsuccessful Seasons on the marriage mart, Miss Adelaide Duveen has resigned herself to the notion that she's destined to remain a spinster forever--a rather dismal prospect, but one that will allow her to concentrate on her darling cats and books. However, when she inadvertently stumbles upon Mr. Gideon Abbott engaged in a clandestine activity during a dinner party, Adelaide finds herself thrust into a world of intrigue that resembles the plots in the spy novels she devours.

Former intelligence agent Gideon Abbott feels responsible for Adelaide after society threatens to banish her because of the distraction she caused to save his investigation. Hoping to return the favor, he turns to a good friend--and one of high society's leaders--to take Adelaide in hand and turn her fashionable. When danger surrounds them and Adelaide finds herself a target of the criminals in Gideon's case, the spark of love between them threatens to be quenched for good--along with their lives.

Delightfully fun!

Miss Adelaide Duveen has yet to have a successful Season. It seems that her fate is to be a spinster, her time occupied by cats and books. Of course, everything changes when she stumbles across Gideon Abbott engaged in suspicious behavior. Association with Gideon adds an intriguing element of adventure to her life—and threatens to alter the comfortable future she had planned.

As I would expect from a Jen Turano novel, To Spark a Match has quite a few silly moments that made me smile. These moments blend with elements of faith, intrigue, and romance to make a perfectly enjoyable historical romance. I loved following Adelaide and Gideon scene after scene, and their story made me so happy.


I received a complimentary copy of this book 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.
