Storing Up Trouble by Jen Turano | Book review by Loraine Nunley #bookreview

What is this book about?

After Miss Beatrix Waterbury suffers multiple mishaps due to her involvement with the suffrage movement, her mother decides a change of scenery is in order for her incorrigible daughter. Banished from New York, Beatrix is sent off for an extended stay with her Aunt Gladys.

Mr. Norman Nesbit, a gentleman and a brilliant man of science devoted to his work, doesn’t have time to be distracted with members of the feminine set. When robbers descend on the train, intent on divesting him from his important research papers, Norman is thrust into Beatrix’s company when she has the audacity to interfere—leaving him no choice but to try to save her from herself.

When Beatrix’s life is put at stake after her arrival and employment as a salesgirl in Chicago, they find themselves propelled into each other’s company again and again. With danger and intrigue dogging their every step, they become surprisingly drawn to each other—until information comes to light that threatens to crush this relationship that’s barely had a chance to blossom.

My review:

Just what I’ve come to expect from this author—Sweet romance, quirky characters, and funny situations. There was so much to love about this story. I found the interactions between Beatrix and Norman amusing and fun. I loved that Beatrix’s character made Norman examine himself and become a better person. My heart melted along with Beatrix when he made the gift for her aunt’s employee.

One of my favorite things about reading this author’s stories is that, not only are the main characters so much fun, but the entire cast of characters she throws into the mix are just delightful. From Norman’s friend Theo and his family, to Beatrix’s Aunt Glady’s and the women she was helping, everyone was just so entertaining.

Another fun thing that always ends up in the stories are the animals. I can count on at least one special animal. I always wonder what will show up and was excited to be introduced to Norman’s noble steed in this story.

The romance was very sweet and I loved that Beatrix and Norman’s relationship grew on mutual affection and respect.

What I enjoyed most about this book:

I loved the dynamic between Norman, Theo, and Beatrix. So much fun there.

What I didn’t like about this book:

This is the final book in the series. I enjoyed the return of the characters from the prior books but I did find the epilogue a little lengthy closing up the series.

Would I recommend this book to others? Yes. This story was so much fun with the quirky characters and amusing situations the author throws them into. This is the third and final book in this series. It can be read as a standalone.

Note: I received this book complimentary as a member of the author’s launch team. I was not required to give a positive review. All of the opinions I have expressed here are honest and my own.
