Caught by Surprise (Apart from the Crowd #3) Reviews
'You're not going to shoot your relatives. You don't have the stomach for that nasty business.'
I am absolutely a forever fan of Jen Turano's work! When I read her first book, I was just captivated. She has the most wonderful and dry sense of humor, which is evident in abundance in her books. This sense of humor will have you rolling in the floor laughing. I have honestly laughed so much reading one of her books, it scared my dog, who was sitting with me in the chair. He got up and left.

*** 4.5 stars***
Jen Turano is a master at creating stories with great plots, humor, eccentric characters, and romance. Oh my goodness, it was hard to put this book down!
From the moment that Temperance Flowerdew is kidnapped and awakens in a coffin, traveling by train, you know that you are in for a unique and amazing read. Temperance has a fantastic outlook on life and gives everyone the benefit of the doubt. She is spontaneous, artistic, and a great friend.
Gilbert, her friend since childhood, i ...more
FANTASTIC – TOO MANY ADJECTIVES TO LIST!
With some despair, I write this is the final book in the series. I believe it is Jen Turano’s best book yet! I had so many emotions. I was completely hooked from the page one kidnapping of Miss Temperance Flowerdew (Jen does have a way with names) in 1883 – New York.
She is whisked off to Chicago by two bumbling criminals.
Ch. 2 They were sitting at a small table covered in fine linen, slurping their way through steaming cups of tea held in delicate china ...more
Love! Love! Love! I am obsessed with Jen Turano's characters in this series!
I can't choose a favorite but I absolutely love Temperance Flowerdew! "While she'd embraced the idea of living a less-than-adventurous life, she'd sacrificed her true sense of self, becoming a woman she didn't even recognize." Seeing her reclaim her true self was so much fun to read. The way she spoke to her captors as if they were not truly of the "criminal persuasion" was a hoot. The story is well balanced with comedy ...more
With frequent adventures, plenty of laughs, and a vibrant spectrum of character personalities, Caught by Surprise is an exhilarating conclusion to the Apart From the Crowd Series.

The ensuing adventure has her facing danger and intrigue, all with the aid of Gilbert Cavendish, her childhood friend. To further complicate matters, she ...more
I loved, loved this book. I am recuperating from surgery and staying with a friend. Every time I laughed out loud, which I did often. my friend would ask what I was reading. Miss Temperance Flowerdew is on her way to work when a stranger suddenly grabs her off the street and sends her on a Chicago-bound train before she can figure out what happened. When Mr. Gilbert Cavendish follows the trail to Chicago he discovers that the woman is his good friend Temperance and soon they're seen alone togeth ...more
It is a well-known fact that when a Jen Turano book shows up on my kindle or in my mailbox I drop everything and hide away to read it and woe betide anyone who tries to take said book away from me. (Just kidding, mostly)
Oh, my goodness, Caught by Surprise is my new favorite! Temperance is one of my favorite characters in this series, she is determined to reclaim her former feisty self, and I think it is something I can relate to. As you get older, and life wears you down, you sometimes have to r ...more
