"Gentleman of Her Dreams" by Jen Turano

About this book:

  “When Miss Charlotte Wilson asks God for a husband, she decides He must want her to pursue Mr. Hamilton Beckett, the catch of the season. The only problem? She's never actually met Hamilton. Fortunately, one of her oldest and dearest friends, Mr. Henry St. James—who has returned to New York after a two-year absence—does know Hamilton. Much to Henry's chagrin, Charlotte immediately ropes him into helping her meet Hamilton. However, none of her plans to catch Hamilton's eye go as she expected, and she is even more confused when her old feelings for Henry begin to resurrect themselves. In the midst of the mayhem Charlotte always seems to cause, she wonders if the gentleman of her dreams might be an entirely different man than she thought.”

My personal Rating-

“Gentleman of Her Dreams”’s ending is about a chapter or so in to “A Change of Fortune”’s storyline; it would be helpful to read this novella before reading book one, “A Change of Fortune” (review on Monday!). I thought “Gentleman of Her Dreams” was probably one of the best novellas I’ve ever read—it wasn’t too short and was just long enough.
{Also, this is a Free Kindle book! Click Here! to get it.}

See y'all every weekday next week with more reviews!


*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
