Turano, Jennifer. A Most Peculiar Circumstance. Bloomington, MN: Bethany House Publishers.2013.
Arabella Becket has a habit of finding herself in sticky situations. Only, this time she has found herself in a dangerous situation that requires a little extra help. A family friend, Theodore Wilder, must repeatedly rescue her much to his great annoyance. Arabella and Theodore must work together to resolve this most peculiar circumstance.
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Arabella Becket is a strong, independent character that the reader will enjoy accompanying through the novel’s excitement. Equally as strong of a character, Theodore Wilder’s annoyance with Arabella Becket will provide ample opportunity for the reader to giggle. The novel is a delightful read that balances the humor with issues that are still visible today. The author’s degree in textiles becomes apparent throughout the novel with excellent descriptions of clothing providing the novel with an extra layer of depth. The novel is part of the “Ladies of Distinction Series”; although not the first book, readers may read the series out of order and equally enjoy all three books.
MY RATING: 4.5 (out of 5) pennies
