A Change of Fortune: A Book Review

About The Book:

Rollicking Debut from an Exciting New Author
Lady Eliza Sumner is on a mission. After losing her family, her fiancé, and her faith, the disappearance of her fortune is the last straw. Now, masquerading as Miss Eliza Sumner, governess-at-large, she's determined to find the man who ran off with her fortune, reclaim the money, and head straight back to London.
Much to Mr. Hamilton Beckett's chagrin, all the eyes of New York society--all the female ones, at least--are on him. Unfortunately for all the matchmaking mothers and eligible daughters, he has no plans to marry again, especially with his hands full keeping his business afloat and raising his two children alone.
When Eliza's hapless attempts to regain her fortune put her right in Hamilton's path, sparks instantly begin to fly. The discovery of a common nemesis causes them to join forces, but with all their plans falling by the wayside and their enemies getting the better of them, it will take a riot of complications for Hamilton and Eliza to realize that God just might have had a better plan in mind all along.
When all of Hamilton's and Eliza's best-laid plans fall by the wayside, it will take a riot of complications for them to realize that God just might have had a better plan in mind all along.

My Review:
A Change of Fortune is the second of this author's books that I have had the privilege of reading. It was a fast read with lots of adventures, mostly surrounding the fun, witty, main character, Lady Eliza. With each chapter read, I felt myself laughing at the many predicaments she found herself in and love that the theme of following God's plan for us, rather than our own, was seen throughout the book.
If you are looking for a great historical fiction, that includes humor and romance, to add to your to-be-read in 2013, I highly recommend A Change of Fortune!
I give this book a huge thumbs up!
