After a Fashion by Jen Turano

Harriet Peabody always prays for a birthday wish.  This year she has left it up to God, and just asks for something wonderful.   Now can she survive the journey and find out what it is he has in mind for her?

I always enjoy books written by Jen Turano, and this book is no exception.  Harriet is a very likable character.  She is surrounded by a cast of characters that is both fun and crazy.  Harriet is a very strong woman.  She has plans and dreams and is going to make them happen.  Oliver is a very nice, if somewhat crusty gentleman.  It is fun to watch the relationship develop between them.  I also enjoyed watching Oliver develop his relationship with God. 

Books by Jen Turano are always a fun, light read.  The characters find themselves in impossible situations but they always manage to come out on top.  I would give this book 4/5 stars.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House.
