Review From User :
There is more than trouble in store in the third book of The American Heiresses series by Jen Turano. There is comedy galore.
Beatrix Waterbury, one of the New York City elite, has been shipped off to Chicago to visit her Aunt Gladys. She seems to get into trouble at the drop of a hat on behalf of the Women Suffragettes movement. On the journey to Chicago during a train robbery, she encounters wealthy, eccentric inventor, Norman Nesbit. They spend a lot of time trying to find out who wants Norman's research papers and doing their best to thwart the thieves.
I love the quirky characters and signature animals that are featured in Ms. Turano's stories. This one includes a mule named Mort and a herd of cats owned by Aunt Gladys. Norman Nesbit may be eccentric but he is lovable and sometimes clueless, which gets him in trouble with his collaborator in all things scientific a girl named Theo.
The quirkiness is not to be outdone in Beatrix, who is outspoken but doesn't want anyone to know she is an heiress. Especially since her aunt has secured her a position in Marshall Fields Department Store. Let the fun and trouble begin.
My love of all things historical extends to the hilarious books of Jen Turano. I especially loved the covers of this series. They are beautiful and evoke the time period perfectly.
