I generally love Jen Turano books, but Out of the Ordinary fell short for me. I had a hard time staying interested in the story, it was lackluster and dull. The names are hard to pronounce and the normally captivating plot was missing. I made it through chapter ten and decided I'd given it enough time and was done.
I have enjoyed all previous works by this author, not sure why this one was different, but it will not deter me from continuing to read her in the future.
About the 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 socialite launch into society.
When Gertrude is caught in the act of trying to return one of the trinkets by Mrs. Sinclair, the mother of shipping magnate Harrison Sinclair, the woman jumps to an unfortunate conclusion. Harrison is determined to mend fences with Miss Cadwalader, but he's unprepared for the escapades a friendship with her will entail.
