    Enjoyable

    This is a quick and easy read. This novel interesting but only 58 pages. Wish it were longer. The story portrays a young woman who is looking for a husband and a young mzn who in love with her yet afraid to tell her.

    Delightful novella, witty writing and fun, though predictable, characters. Great prelude to the author's upcoming debut, full-length novel. Excellent introduction to her writing. I look forward to reading more by Jen Turano.

    This was so cute. Charlotte is a riot and that she wanted to cat

    This was so cute. Charlotte is a riot and that she wanted to catch Mr. Hamilton Beckett and the way she tried were hilarious to me. I loved how Henry tried to help her and put aside his own feelings for her to try to help out, but that Charlotte’s family and even the servants knew Henry was more suited to her and were rooting for him. I rooted for him too. Such a nice guy and it was wonderful that they figured it out eventually. 
    It was so fun and I know it was a prep or a teaser for the Change of Fortune coming out soon I loved her style of writing I’m definitely going to get it soon.

    Short, sweet, and adorably funny, Gentleman of Her Dreams is a companion novella for the full length novel A Change of Fortune. However, it is not necessary to read one to understand the other. They are both fine on their own.

    This quick read was an absolute delight and just what I was looking for. I love historical fiction, and every now and again I feel the need to get away from all the paranormal and adventure and just read a good clean romance. This short christian romance was exactly what I wanted. It was humorous, witty, and super cute. It was squeaky clean, too!

    Charming, but too short

    The characters were entertaining and the writing was good. I was just disappointed to discover it was only 57 pages long, short even by novella standards. The female lead character came alive but was a bit too immature to be real, even for her young adult age.

    This novella is a fantastic introduction to a new author.

    Jen Turano has a wonderful talent for developing colorful and memorable characters. She has written an incredibly amusing story. There is a nice flow to the plot. I enjoyed it very much and look forward to reading more about these characters in the rest of the books she has and will write in this series.

    Fun clean romance

    I thought this book had a great story line! I loved being able to laugh at all of the circumstances the main character finds herself involved in. Because of this book, I actually bought the author's other two books. Needless to say I have not been disappointed!

    A good read!

    This was a good read. It never got boring, and it was well written. I liked how it showed her trying to do God's will even when she was miss reading the signs.

    Old saying proved true that grass looks greener on the other side and what you are looking for across the fence is in your own back yard. Good read.

    Good thing it was free.

    The main character is really to childish. The man in love with her must really love her to be completely blind to her annoying nature. I only read two chapters before i couldn't read it anymore.
