Oh my! Jen Turano has done it again. Somehow she always manages to combine a truly memorable romance with one hilarious, witty scene after another, as well as inject just the right amount of mystery. I love her characters with the delightfully quaint names given the heroine and other females. Heroes are always swoon-worthy and readers will usually find at least one thoroughly detestable person in the mix. The addition of charming children and rambunctious pets sends the story over the top.

I loved everything about Flights of Fancy. It was such fun observing pampered heiress Isadora pretend to be a housekeeper. As readers can imagine, her chores were filled with mostly humorous mishaps that were often witnessed by the handsome hero Ian. Witnessing Isadora’s transformation from a spoiled, self-absorbed lady to one who cared about others and learned to depend on the Lord was very gratifying.

Flights of Fancy is a fun, romantic tale devoid of objectionable scenes or language. I would not hesitate to allow a teen daughter to read it.

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book provided by the author through Bethany House Publishing. A favorable review was not required. All views expressed are my own.


Miss Isadora Delafield may be an heiress, but her life is far from carefree. When her mother begins pressuring her to marry an elderly and uncouth duke, she escapes from the high-society world she’s always known and finds herself an unlikely candidate for a housekeeper position in rural Pennsylvania.

Mr. Ian MacKenzie is known for his savvy business sense and has built his reputation and fortune completely through traditional hard work. But when his adopted parents are in need of a new housekeeper and Isadora is thrown into his path, he’s unexpectedly charmed by her unconventional manner.

Neither Isadora nor Ian expected to find the other so intriguing, but when a chain of mysterious incidents on the farm point to a larger threat, they’ll have to set aside everything they thought they wanted for a chance at happy-ever-after.
