Flights of Fancy

Flights of Fancy
by Jen Turano

I am always excited to hear that Jen Turano has a new book, and Flights of Fancy introduces a whole new series, American Heiresses! I have no idea how Turano continues to come up with incredibly creative and humorous characters, but each book is better than the one before. Flights of Fancy brings a whole new level of fun.

Isadora Delafield has been trained all her life to become a respectful wife to a high society gentleman. When her mother discovers a widowed duke from England who is interested in her daughter, she will go to all lengths to see them wed. Never mind that the duke is a lecherous old man whose two former wives died in suspicious circumstances. To save her future, Isadora is whisked away from New York to the outskirts of Pennsylvania to answer an advertisement requesting a maid.

It is soon obvious that Isadora is not capable of such a job, but through a series of hilarious mishaps she is hired to help a household that includes an older woman with a broken leg, an older man who seems just a bit crazy, and four orphaned children. The home is, of course, also the childhood home of the hunky and important businessman, Ian MacKenzie.

Turano's books are always a whirlwind of activity, intrigue, and laughs. They are fast reads because I just can't seem to put them down -- I'm so fascinated to see what incredible situations the heroine will find herself in next! If you like books that take you away from the stress of everyday life and make you laugh, I highly recommend this book!

Miss Isadora Delafield may be an heiress, but her life is far from carefree. When her mother begins pressuring her to marry and elderly and uncouth duke, she escapes from the high society world she's always known and find herself an unlikely candidate for a housekeeper position in rural Pennsylvania.

Mr. Ian MacKenzie is known for his savvy business sense and has built his reputation and fortune completely through traditional hard work. But when his adopted parents are in need of a new housekeeper and Isadora is thrown into his path, he's unexpectedly charmed by her unconventional manner.

Neither Isadora nor Ian expected to find the other so intriguing, but when a chain of mysterious incidents on the farm point to a larger threat, they'll have to set aside everything they thought they wanted for a chance a happy-ever-after.
