Rollicking new release from humorous historical romance author Jen Turano.
Miss Gertrude Cadwalader hoped her position as the paid companion to Mrs. Davenport would be easy. But as she becomes acquainted with her employer, she realizes the wealthy Mrs. Davenport has a strange tendency to be a bit light-fingered with other people's trinkets. Gertrude is relieved when Mrs. Davenport decides to have a quiet summer away from the social scene - until the woman changes her mind in order to help a young socialite launch into society.
When Gertrude is caught in the act of trying to return one of the trinkets by Mrs. Sinclair, the mother of shipping magnate Harrison Sinclair, the woman jumps to an unfortunate conclusion. Harrison is determined to mend fences with Miss Cadwalader, but he's unprepared for the escapades a friendship with her will entail.

Not for me.

Any additional comments?

The story was OK but it is not for me. I just found it slow going and I lost interest quite quickly. I also did not find it really that funny.

However, others might like it more then I did. It is a clean read with some interesting characters, so it suitable for all.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Delightful clean read

This was a delightful clean listen. I really enjoyed it. it is sorta stand alone but i think i would have enjoyed it even more had i listened to the first book in the series first since the characters are in this story too and i got the impression that the relationship that bloomed in this one, started in the first one.

The characters are well rounded and believable. i would love to read or listen to the other books in this series. The narrator was also easy to listen to.

i was gifted a credit to review this book and give it and honest review, this is my honest review.

Absolutely delightful!

This was a fantastic second book for the, Apart from the Crowd, series. I loved every minute.
Turano, has captured my attention in a big way. Each caricature is well rounded, with strong personalities. As with the first book, this one has a clean love story, strong female caricatures, plenty of things to chuckle about, and a bit of mystery. I will now eagerly await more of her books to be made into audiobook form.
I received this book for free, in return for my honest review.
