Publisher's Summary

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.

A good, clean and entertaining story.

I have enjoyed all of Jen Turano's books. She does a good job weaving a little mystery with some humor to create a nice story.
The only complaint that I have is with three over-used phrases:

1. "What with" - If I had to count the times the characters said these two words together I would guess it would be in the thousands!
2. "That right there" - It just sounds odd to me. I could understand it if one odd character used this phrase, but it was not limited to just one, many of them used it. :(
3. "Too right you are" - I understand that people did use this phrase, but did they really use it that often?

Also, some of the other phrases and wording are much more current, so they don't ring true in the story.

But overall, I still enjoyed it. The narrator did a good job with most of the voices, though I was confused at times with some of the "Southern" accents, at least I was able to keep track (most of the time) of the characters.

A wonderful thought provoking book, Saint Maries Idaho

I loved how Norman was able to.look at himself and change some of the behavior patterns that were getting in his way. This story made me look at myself for the things I need to change.
Yet the author was able to weave humor through these lessons that made this story most delightful!

Loved it!

I am a huge fan of Jen Turano, and for the longest time her books weren't available on audio. I am so glad that they are now! I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The narrator did a lovely job conveying the personalities of the different characters, and it was incredibly entertaining to listen to as I worked on making fabric face masks.

Funny and Exciting

I love the humor of every book in this series. Miss Jen takes the imperfections of the heroines of each book and makes them the defining characteristics that we all adore. Making those of us who have the aptitude for certain blunders in life to laugh with familiarity. Thank you Miss Jen for writing from your heart. Your books are refreshing, and I look forward to each one! :)

❤️ Beatrix and Norman❤️

All the stars! This is such a fun and entertaining book to read or listen to. I highly recommend it!
Meeting during a train robbery does not set Beatrix and Norman on a very good path but it is so much fun seeing them travel it together. I loved how they bickered and spent most of their time annoyed with one another. While at the same time feeling a bit of an electrical spark between them.
I absolutely loved all the side stories throughout the book too. Especially Theodosia's.
Aunt Gladys, her cats, and the group of women that live with her are a hoot!
The cameo appearances of Izzy, Poppy, and Murray were fun to see as well.
The epilogue is a wonderful end to this story and the series. Do know that you can read each book as a stand-alone, it's simply more fun to read them all.
Jen Turano has yet again given me a story that I will enjoy repeatedly.

Delightful story

Another great story by Jen Turano. Beatrix gets a job to learn about what it’s like for working women and grows into her potential in this delightful read.

The audio narration was well done as well.
