A Change of Fortune by Jen Turano

A Change of Fortune by Jen Turano
*I received this book from the publisher in return for an honest review

Stunning. Absolutely stunning. How could I enjoy a book like this any more than I already do? The answer to that is simple. I can't. I laughed and giggled and smiled like crazy. I also sighed, bit my nails, and covered my eyes in embarrassment for the characters. I don't normally enjoy books where one of the main characters already has children, but Ben and Piper were delightful. I could not keep myself from laughing at their antics.

Zayne had to be one of my favorite characters. While he was not the main character, he was very important to the plot, as the brother of Hamilton. His humorous and dry comments had me throwing my head back in laughter.

Eliza, who was the main character, had my shoulders shaking with giggles I couldn't quite contain. She was a breath of fresh air, and her temper reminded me somewhat of my own.

Hamilton, also the main character, was charming and almost as humorous as his brother. He had the perfect quantity of flaws and brilliance. He jumped from the page and became real.

Agatha, though not a main character, was perfect. At first, I assumed she was deceitful and uncaring, but her true nature showed as the pages turned. She's daring, witty, and charming. I loved getting to know her. I certainly hope the next book in the series is about her.

The rest of the cast was terrific as well. I could not have been more pleased with this book. It has found itself on my favorites list, as I knew it would from the minute I started reading. It gripped me from the first page.

Very enjoyable and very funny, with just the right touches of suspense. You will not be sorry you read the book!
