Book Blurb

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.

My Review

Storing up Trouble by Jen Turano is an interesting book. It is book three of The American Heiresses series but this can be read as a stand alone even though, I haven’t read the first two books.


The opening pages promised  me of an interesting adventure between the pages.


I love Beatrix Waterbury. She is so lively and funny. I love her spunk and guts!
She is one of the great American Heiresses. My oh my! I love her spunk and bluntness. I can’t stop repeating it.


There is enough humour to enjoy in this novel. I highly recommend this book. Even the book cover is alluring.


I couldn’t stop laughing at Beatrix and Norman ceaseless banters. You will understand the story behind the book Storing Up Trouble.


I love the bible verse Aunt Gladys gave Beatrix. That’s my favourite bible verse given to me by my mother. I could understand the meaning perfectly in this book.


I have read Jen Turano’s books but I laughed and  smiled so well while reading this particular book although I must warn you,Norman is too knowledgeable. You need to bear with him.


I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
