Book Review: Storing Up Trouble (American Heiresses Book #3) By Jen Turano

Storing Up Trouble (American Heiresses, #3)


When Miss Beatrix Waterbury's Chicago-bound train ride is interrupted by a heist, Mr. Norman Nesbit, a man of science who believes his research was the target of the heist, comes to her aid. Despite the fact that they immediately butt heads, they join forces to make a quick escape.

Upon her arrival in Chicago, Beatrix is surprised to discover her supposedly querulous Aunt Gladys shares her own suffragette passions. Encouraged by Gladys to leave her sheltered world, Beatrix begins working as a salesclerk at the Marshall Field and Company department store. When she again encounters Norman on a shopping expedition, he is quickly swept up in the havoc she always seems to attract.

But when another attempt is made to part Norman from his research papers, and it becomes clear Beatrix's safety is also at risk, they soon discover the curious way feelings can grow between two very different people in the midst of chaos.

This is the 3rd book in the American Heiress series. While this is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone. There are so many reasons to love this book. Let's start with the cover. It is beautifully done with such a striking woman in the center. The author is known for quirky, loveable characters. This book is no different. Beatrix might be my most favorite main character as of late.  Beatrix Waterbury has been sent to Chicago to stay with her aunt. On this train ride - it is interrupted with a train heist - and due to this Beatrix meets Norman. Beatrix is outspoken and a strong female. Norman and Beatrix butt heads - but the book follows their journey - with many laughs along the way. Jen always writes such amazing, original stories. This is set in 1886 - in a time where women did not have much of a voice. The author always writes memorable characters and storylines. I received a copy of this book through the author -- all thoughts are my own.
