Bethany House
With the loss of her family, fiancé and fortune, Lady Eliza Sumner heads to New York City and disguises herself as a governess as she tracks the man who stole her family’s fortune. Her very unsuccessful and fairly comical attempts to reclaim her fortune put her in the path of widower and businessman Hamilton Beckett, who is the focus of many matchmaking mothers — including his own mother. But he is unsure of his own heart as his relationship with his wife was shaky before she was found dead.

When Eliza and Hamilton figure out they have a common nemesis and join forces, their plans seem to fall apart every way they turn as complications, including ones of the heart, are everywhere and nothing is as it initially appears.

Fiery Eliza finds herself in several situations that are humorously frustrating as she tries to navigate restoring her fortune, love, faith and the quirky characters in her life in Jen Turano’s delightfully lighthearted debut novel, "A Change of Fortune" (Bethany House, $14.99).

One of my favorite love stories is one men enjoy too: The Scarlet Pimpernel.
