Gentleman of Her Dreams by Jen Turano

About the Book
When Miss Charlotte Wilson asks God for a husband, she decides He must want her to pursue Mr. Hamilton Beckett, the catch of the season. The only problem? She's never actually met Hamilton. Fortunately, one of her oldest and dearest friends, Mr. Henry St. James--who has returned to New York after a two-year absence--does know Hamilton. Much to Henry's chagrin, Charlotte immediately ropes him into helping her meet Hamilton. However, none of her plans to catch Hamilton's eye go as she expected, and she is even more confused when her old feelings for Henry begin to resurrect themselves. In the midst of the mayhem Charlotte always seems to cause, she wonders if the gentleman of her dreams might be an entirely different man than she thought.This novella is a companion to A Change of Fortune, Jen Turano's full-length debut novel, available fall 2012!

My Thoughts
I loved this novella! I originally got it simply because it was free for Amazon kindle and the plot sounded kinda cute. Then I discovered that it was connected to her novel that I had received for review. So being the crazy must-read-books-in-order person that I am, I decided to quickly read A Gentleman of Her Dreams fiirst. And I was so glad I did! The story is filled with humor that had me laughing out loud several times and is written in a fresh entertaining way. I loved the characters and the love story, and pretty much everything about this book! I love the fact that the dinner party, during which the last scene of this story is set, is where the novel, A Change of Fortune, begins. And we also got to meet the main characters of that book! I highly encourage you to go grab Gentleman of Her Dreams (it's still free!) and enjoy and quick fun read and then, if you like that be sure to read A Change of Fortune! I can't wait to start it!
