As much as I truly loved this book, I was unable to find the time to write a worthy review of it. It definitely stands up to my expectations of anything with Jen Turano’s name on it! It’s a very fun read that I had a hard time putting down. And I cannot wait to read the rest of the series! 🙂

After A Fashion by Jen Turano is a surprisingly suspenseful, historical romance novel completely worthy of five stars and beyond!! Add a few spunky characters and you have the perfect book! Read more…
~ Nicki @Confessions of a Teenage Bookworm ~
After a Fashion is a fun, quick read that is perfect for all those girly girls, but also for those who are a bit more strong willed and tomboyish…. The story, though somewhat simple, was extremely funny; and Jen’s love for humor definitely shined through the story, and kept it fun. Read more…

~ SOME FAVORITE QUOTES ~
Harriet: I don’t have a desire to find myself in jail, but if I’m forced to continue spending time with you… I fear I might be compelled to do something to you that will certainly land me there.
Harriet: I always forget to breathe when I get nervous.
Oliver: I suppose you should be thankful then that you don’t appear to be the type to get nervous often.
Harriet: I must say, all these compliments you keep sending my way are bound to go to my head soon. Why, I don’t recall the last time I was deemed peculiar and suspicious all in the same day.
Harriet: I’m waiting with bated breath to hear what you’ll say next.
Oliver: Ah, sarcasm, how refreshing, he said pleasantly.
Harriet: He’s very high-handed. Do you know that yesterday he had the audacity to ask me to practice adoring looks while peering into a mirror because he felt I was glaring at him too often?
