To Disguise The Truth By Jen Turano

To Disguise the Truth
by Jen Turano
Publisher: Bethany House
Series: The Bleecker Street Inquiry Agency
ISBN: 9780764235337

I'll never be able to resist a Jen Turano book. Ever! As much as I'm sad that this is the last book in the series, I was excited to read Eunice's story because she's intrigued me since book one.


When a man arrives at the Bleecker Street Inquiry Agency, anxious to hire them to find a missing heiress, Eunice Holbrooke realizes her past has finally caught up with her . . . and that she may no longer be able to hide under the disguise that has kept her safe for so long. 

Arthur Livingston's goal in life is to make his mark on the world as a mining industrialist, but after the man who could help him achieve his goal is murdered, Arthur feels compelled to seek justice for the family--but he's left with more questions than answers after the eccentric Bleecker Street Inquiry Agency refuses to take on his case. 

Desperate to conceal her real identity and avoid the irritatingly handsome Arthur, Eunice takes on a different case that requires her to go deep undercover and entangles her in one troublesome situation after another. When other secrets come to light, Eunice has no choice but to confront her past, hopeful that it will set her free but knowing it could very well place her life--and the lives of those she loves--in jeopardy.

My Review:

Once again Jen Turano has given us a fun story and fun characters in To Disguise the Truth. I've been excited to get to know Eunice since we met her in book one. She was such a mystery and I was glad to find out all of the complex reasons why she was such an enigma.

The first line of the story had me chuckling and pretty much the first part of the book. Arthur has one job when he gets to the Inquiry Agency and he does a miserable job of it! The ladies were all a hoot with him, and I loved every moment of it.

Eunice's story didn't let me down. Her purposes for wearing widows weeds makes sense and sets up the rest of the story for us. In her attempt to NOT help Arthur out, she ends up in quite the sticky situation. It's in this situation where I realized I wanted to grow up to have the skills she has!

As we get to know Arthur better we see that he has redeeming qualities and that we may have judged him too harshly in the beginning. Maybe. The way his story unfolds and we get to know his family better, I start to like them all a lot! I have to say, I could handle a story with Grandfather Lloyd and Eunice's Aunt Hazel. HA!

There are lots of twists and turns in the story, which is to be expected when there's a mystery at hand. There's a lot I can't say because so many things come to light in the end. It's wrapped up nicely and I definitely loved the entire series!
