About Flights of Fancy
Miss Isadora Delafield may be an heiress, but her life is far from carefree. When her mother begins pressuring her to marry an elderly and uncouth duke, she escapes from the high society world she’s always known and finds herself to be 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 on his own merits. 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 mysterious incidents on the farm and the truth of Isadora’s secret threaten those they love, they’ll have to set aside everything they thought they wanted for a chance at happy-ever-after.
It always makes me happy to find new authors! So when a follower on my Instagram page suggested I read Jen Turano’s books, I happily complied. I grabbed one of them on my Kindle and got started.
This author writes in a way that is really readable. The reader gets wrapped up in the story, that is not at all stuffy. I loved the way the author included bits of humor. Funny things happening to the heroine made the book that much more likable for me.
Miss Isadora Delafield is the main character. She’s a young heiress who has had the misfortune of attracting a duke from England. This duke is not a likable fellow. In fact, he’s downright scary. So Izzy and her butler come up with a plan to get her away. That plan being for Izzy to get a job as a housekeeper. That is just crazy! Here’s a young society miss trying to work at all. There was much humor in those parts!
Then there’s Ian. I loved the way he didn’t really think Izzy would work as a housekeeper. But he really had no other choice. So he left her in charge. I loved the way what was important to Ian changed throughout the book. He became the man his adoptive mother knew he could become.
This is such a great book! It’s full of humor, love and great writing.
I borrowed Flights of Fancy using my Kindle Unlimited subscription. All opinions are my own.
