Out of the Ordinary

When shipping magnate Harrison Sinclair’s mother catches Gertrude Cadwalader, paid companion to the light-fingered Mrs. Davenport, returning a pilfered item, she comes to the wrong conclusion. However, Harrison is eager to mend fences once he realizes the error. After a real thief starts preying on society, can Gertrude and Harrison catch the culprit?

All right. Time to be honest here. I didn’t exactly enjoy this book. It seemed kind of “dry.” I really enjoy Jen Turano’s books, Playing the Part being my favorite, but this one didn’t hit the spot. It isn’t that I didn’t like the characters or anything like that. (Okay, I might not like Mrs. Davenport, but everyone else was great!) I feel like there wasn’t enough to keep the story going. The first third of the book was one night. And, there wasn’t a lot “chemistry” between Gertrude and Harrison. It was mostly their friends telling them that they should be together.

I feel horrible giving this book a bad review because I really enjoy Jen Turano as an author. Unfortunately, however, I can’t recommend this book with five stars.

The cover fit the genre and type of story—the whole yacht plot. I am going to give the cover 4 stars.

As for the book, I can only give it 2 stars. I wish I could give it a higher rating.
