Rollicking New Release from Humorous Historical Romance Author Jen Turano

Miss Gertrude Cadwalader hoped her position as the paid companion to Mrs. Davenport would be easy. But as she becomes acquainted with her employer, she realizes the wealthy Mrs. Davenport has a strange tendency to be a bit light-fingered with other people's trinkets. Gertrude is relieved when Mrs. Davenport decides to have a quiet summer away from the social scene--until the woman changes her mind in order to help a young socialite launch into society.

When Gertrude is caught in the act of trying to return one of the trinkets by Mrs. Sinclair, the mother of shipping magnate Harrison Sinclair, the woman jumps to an unfortunate conclusion. Harrison is determined to mend fences with Miss Cadwalader, but he's unprepared for the escapades a friendship with her will entail.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* It's a colossal understatement to say that rich, elderly Mrs. Davenport is eccentric. Gertrude Cadwalader, an extraordinary ordinary young woman, serves as her companion, and whenever Mrs. Davenport has flashes of inspiration, poor Gertrude gets to be her guinea pig. Mrs. Davenport has festooned Gertrude in everything from a hoop skirt made from a real birdcage to orange body dye. Although Gertrude is neither wealthy or fashionable, Harrison Sinclair, one of the most eligible men in New York, has noticed her. He likes her wit and her loyalty to her unconventional employer. He even likes the orange dye on Gertrude's skin. If only Mrs. Davenport would stop stealing things long enough for Gertrude to have a serious relationship with Harrison. Mrs. Davenport; Margaret, Harrison's overbearing sister (and Mrs. Davenport's latest target); and a society woman who will stop at nothing to gain Harrison's affection provide lots of excitement in this fast-paced, festive, funny romance. Out of the Ordinary is the second book in Turano's entertaining, faith-based Apart from the Crowd series, following Behind the Scenes (2017).--Mosley, Shelley Copyright 2017 Booklist"
