Out of the Ordinary, #2 Apart from the Crowd by Jen Turano

***** 5 stars

Hilarious Look at 19th Century High Society

Jen Turano has outdone herself in presenting a hilarious look at high society in the late nineteenth century. Out of the Ordinary is a tale that is just that: out of the ordinary. "Wallflower" young women attracting the most eligible bachelors in society; a wealthy kleptomaniac; the Pinkertons; and clueless men who think the path to chivalry is portrayed in dime store novels. Ooh, la, la! This book was a laugh a minute as the mystery was untangled. All the characters are so much fun to get to know, I couldn't help wishing they were real people that were truly my friends. What a riotous adventure Out of the Ordinary is.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Netgalley. This in no way influenced my opinions of the book, nor was a positive review required.
