Storing Up Trouble


Storing Up Trouble by Jen Turano is a fun historical romance story.

Beatrix Waterbury is an American Heiress sent to live with her suffragette aunt due to all the trouble that she seems to get into. On her way to Chicago she finds herself in the middle of a train robbery. She escapes with Norman Nesbit, who assumes she has an unfortunate background. Beatrix is insulted by his assumptions, and lets him know how arrogant he is. This gets Norman's attention as he discovers how much he has missed in his life.

When Aunt Gladys encourages Beatrix to take a job, things get humorous and tragic. Being  thrown into the world of commerce, she sees first hand how women struggle in the world. 

I loved how Beatrix and Norman learn to like each other, after a poor start. And how Norman becomes a better person from the challenges that Beatrix is not afraid to dish out. 

This is a well written story with great dialogue.

I received a complimentary ebook copy from the publisher, through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
