Finding Margo

GIVEAWAY

TURANO, JEN
FINDING MARGO

Off the charts and on the run.

International pop star Margo Hartman could use a night off. A grueling tour and overbearing entourage have sent her over the edge. It's time for this diva to disappear. And who would think to look for the superstar in a small town in Ohio?

Sheriff's deputy Brock Moore is undercover as well. He knows Margo isn't who she appears to be, but her uncanny resemblance to a local Amish woman is raising all sorts of questions...the kinds that maker her a target for a killer.

Both are determined to find answers, but their mutual attraction stands in the way of either of them doing it alone. Is finding Margo the solution to Brock's problem or just the beginning...?

My Review:

Love Jen Turano's historical books? Well....suspend any preconceived notions you might have of her writing style and story telling technique and prepare to be entertained in an entirely new way! Still good...but different! So don't let that discombobulate your book karma, okay?

Campy and quirky with the occasional over-the-top slapstick, this book is comedy at its finest. Love the ridiculous in some scenes, the pithy dialogue and tongue-in-cheek humour. And the Amish angle? Sublime! Not quite suspense, not quite mystery -- somewhere in the middle maybe? With a generous side of laughter. And a duck. Gotta love a strong duck character in the middle of all that romance and mystery, right? Book One of the Coming Home series and I'm eagerly anticipating Book Two's release this coming winter. Woot!

    1. Snort! Or should I say Quack? Very clever, Trixi. And the duck is memorable so it's no wonder you've been hearing chatter about her. Good luck!

  18. Great review! I'm excited to read the book. I'm glad you mentioned the slapstick. That part seems similar to her historical novels, but I'm also looking forward to the different setting.
