After a Fashion by Jen Turano is the first book I've read by the author. The book is the story of Harriet Peabody, a young lady trying to support herself by working in a millinery shop, while trying to get to the point where she can open her own clothing store. Mr. Oliver Addleshaw is a well-known, extremely wealthy man. The unlikely pair meet through even more unlikely circumstances and are thrown together when Oliver makes Harriet an offer she can't refuse.
Oliver strives to make a good impression on his potential business partner through his alliance with Harriet, but she quickly learns that she can't fit into his world. A series of surprising events changes the relationship between Harriet and Oliver and into something neither one could have imagined. This historical fiction novel is fast-paced and fun as well as full of mystery and storyline twists and turns. I'd recommend it to anyone that enjoys historical fiction, especially those that are quirky and a little out of the ordinary.
I received a copy of this book from Bethany House in exchange for this review; all opinions are my own.
