“A Most Peculiar Circumstance” is an Engaging Read

I have to admit that it takes quite an engaging story to jolt me out of my “stickler for historic accuracy” mode but Jen Turano manages it quite nicely in “A Most Peculiar Circumstance.” Miss Arabella Beckett is a woman of high society and an ardent worker for the rights of women which was quite a controversial subject in the 1880’s, to be sure. When she narrowly escapes a terrible fate and lands herself in jail, she prays for rescue only to find she doesn’t really appreciate the form that rescues appears in, namely one handsome private detective, Theodore Wilder. Trouble seems to follow Arabella like a lost puppy and her ensuing adventures make for a fun and entertaining read.
“A Most Peculiar Circumstance” is a fun light read. History buffs may cringe a few times at unlikely scenarios or behaviors but, if you can put those aside, the book is entertaining. The characters are fun and though the plot is a bit predictable, it is an entertaining way to pass an afternoon.
This book was provided to me by Bethany House for this review. The opinions, however, are entirely my own!
