    The second installment of Turano's Apart from the Crowd series is laugh-out-loud enjoyable. The foibles of the characters, balanced out with a light-hearted yet meaningful love story, is a true treat. Gertrude has a great head on her shoulders, and even though her sensible ways are foi...

    ***4.5 stars*** I loved this book cast with eccentrics! There are so many moments that had me smiling/laughing/chuckling. This is fun book to read from start to finish! While this is a fun book to read, there are many serious issues the characters are going through. Jen Turano de...

    Reviewed at The Power of Words: http://bit.ly/2mhNjF6 Sometimes nothing else will do but a Jen Turano book. Jen excels at witty dialogue and has the ability to turn the simplest of situations into laugh-out-loud humor. I?m not sure, but suspect that Georgette Heyer is somewhere in...

    I will say that for the most part, I wasn?t disappointed. There are several things about this book that I much prefer over the first. The opening: So about the first half of the book (almost) takes place in one day. Much like the last one, actually. But unlike Behind the S...

    Out of the Ordinary felt as though it took a long time to get going. It wasn?t that nothing was happening?there was a lot happening. But it all took place in a very short period of time. It starts with Miss Gertrude Cadwalder attending a party on a yacht with her employer, Mrs Dave...

    This was one of the sweetest most sentimental stories. I think I too fell in love with Harrison Sinclair. Gertrude is a true friend and very loyal to her employer Mrs. Davenport. Finally, we find out why she?s a wackadoo. It?s a sad and devastating tale. Most upsetting is how the w...

    This review and others can be found at C Jane Read. This is book two of the series and many characters carry over from the previous book. Book one featured Permilia and Asher with this one featuring their best friends Gertrude and Harrison. Gertrude is the paid companion of Mrs. Dav...

    I have long been a fan of Turano?s books and Out of the Ordinary is definitely one of the best yet! Gertrude and Harrison settled down deep in my heart. They are dear friends and have this quiet yet obvious attraction between them. Watching their ambrosial friendship develop into som...

    Out of the Ordinary by Jen Turano was an absolutely hilarious book. In fact, this may be her funniest book yet. Which is saying a lot. Gertrude was such an original, engaging character and her relationship with Harrison was laugh out loud funny. I liked that they had a mutual respec...

    Ah... Jen's books are always so very fun to read! That's why I like them so much. They're unusual and wholly unbelievable, but they make me laugh and I dearly love a laugh! :) This book was, as I expected, a lot of fun and quite the adventure at times! There are some deeper, m...

    "Out of the Ordinary" is certainly just that--a not very ordinary book! This book is the second book in the "Apart from the Crowd" series, although it can be read as a standalone. This is my first book by Jen Turano and I really enjoyed this hilarious, anything-but-ordinary story. T...

    I just fell in love with Jen Turano's books with her very first and right then and there determined to be a forever fan of her work. My opinion has only been further cemented with each book. She is a riot! Miss Gertrude Cadwalader works as a paid companion to a very eccentric Mrs. D...

    So, embarrassing story. I marked this book as read and stated that a review was coming soon, and then set about scribbling all my review notes down so I wouldn't forget anything, and what did I forget? To actually post it. *eye-roll* I remember well, however, that I thoroughly enjoye...

    This book is a lot of fun. This is my first book by this author and although it's not my favorite genre it was a great read. The characters are pretty far fetched but it is fiction so I use my imagination. Lots of silliness going on which led me to smiles and giggles. I compare this re...

    Adventures, misunderstandings, and crazy attire combine to create a delightful story that will keep you chuckling throughout! Mishaps seem to follow Gertrude wherever she goes, but her sweet spirit makes her a character you wish you could meet in real life. And while Harrison's styl...

    Another winner in the line up of books by Jen Turano! As I've come to expect from her, this book was wonderfully hilarious and warmly romantic. The second book in the Apart From the Crowd series, Out of the Ordinary will keep you entertained all the way through! One of the things I ...

    Unfortunately, this book didn't pan out for me. I've read a few of Jen Turano's novels in the past and liked them - but Out of the Ordinary really didn't have the same type of story structure, romance, or excitement. Which is a bit of a bummer... First off, let's talk romance. Don't...

    I've read many Jen Turano books now, and she continues with 'Out of the Ordinary' in a similar fashion that's very unique to her. The characters are always quirky and fun. The dialogue differs from other books in this genre in that there's always a lot of sparring, with humor. I have n...

    I adore Jen Turano's writing. She creates such realistic historical characters that jump off the page. Her heroines are never the typical women of the time period. They enjoy acting out of the societal norms, which I love. Her writing is crisp and clean with abundant descriptions to k...

    This story is a delight! As always, Turano?s writing is full of humor and historical detail, and the romance between these two unusual members of society is both funny and swoon-worthy. I loved when Harrison matter-of-factly begins calling Gertrude ?Gertie.? Her compassion toward...

    Out of the Ordinary is the second book in the Apart from the Crowd series and I absolutely loved that this book included the original cast of characters from book one. I love it when a cast of characters are developed and then they are carried through a series, it just adds to the over...

    DNF twice! I tried two times to get into this book, but I just couldn't. I made it over 100 pages and didn't care at all about how it might end. Jen has written some great books, but this series just hasn't been as great in my opinion. ...

    I love Jen, and had SO many expectations for this book! I heard it was her funniest book to date, though I did laugh out loud a few times it wasn?t as hilarious as I had heard. That being said, I thoroughly enjoyed Gertie (?) and Harrison?s story!!! I loved the Sinclair siste...
