    About this book:“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 socia...

    The second installment of Turano's Apart from the Crowd series is laugh-out-loud enjoyable. The foibles of the characters, balanced out with a light-hearted yet meaningful love story, is a true treat. Gertrude has a great head on her shoulders, and even though her sensible ways are foiled at each turn by her impetuous boss, she keeps a cool countenance (even when in some rather unimaginable situations). It's great that all of the threads are tied...

    Full review and q&a on Faithfully BookishTurano delivers a subtle faith message in a universally appealing, inspiring, and delightfully entertaining tale of Gilded Age wallflowers and their dashing gentleman counterparts. Gertrude, Harrison, Asher, Permillia and their band of misfit friends, family, and acquaintances keep the story hopping with romance, mystery, and all-out shenanigans! The Apart from the Crowd series is one of the few which my ...

    This book is a lot of fun. This is my first book by this author and although it's not my favorite genre it was a great read. The characters are pretty far fetched but it is fiction so I use my imagination. Lots of silliness going on which led me to smiles and giggles. I compare this read to a little treat, a cupcake with fluffy buttercream frosting!

This new story carries her signature style of writing throughout the book. The names of her heroines are amusing, heroine Gertrude Cadwalader has her job as companion keeps her ...

    Reviewed at The Power of Words: http://bit.ly/2mhNjF6Sometimes nothing else will do but a Jen Turano book. Jen excels at witty dialogue and has the ability to turn the simplest of situations into laugh-out-loud humor. I’m not sure, but suspect that Georgette Heyer is somewhere in her ancestry. I enjoyed every minute spent reading this delightful story.Out of the Ordinary can stand alone, but it’s so much fun to see characters grow throughout ...

    Out of the Ordinary is the second book in the Apart from the Crowd series and I absolutely loved that this book included the original cast of characters from book one. I love it when a cast of characters are developed and then they are carried through a series, it just adds to the overall story for me. This story though was focused on the relationship between Gertrude Cadwalader and Harrison Sinclair. I definitely enjoyed how things played out be...

    I just fell in love with Jen Turano's books with her very first and right then and there determined to be a forever fan of her work. My opinion has only been further cemented with each book. She is a riot!Miss Gertrude Cadwalader works as a paid companion to a very eccentric Mrs. Davenport, a society matron fond of lifting items of value from houses she visits. Miss Cadwalader then must sneak back and return them all with no one being the wiser. ...

    Out of the Ordinary by Jen Turano was an absolutely hilarious book. In fact, this may be her funniest book yet. Which is saying a lot.Gertrude was such an original, engaging character and her relationship with Harrison was laugh out loud funny. I liked that they had a mutual respect for each other, despite the fact that they kept finding themselves and each other in embarrassing situations. I really liked Harrison, he was down to earth and humble...
