Thanks to Author Jen Turano and Paula, we are able to offer a #GIVEAWAY of TO DISGUISE THE TRUTH paperback!
In the conclusion to the series we finally get to find out why Eunice dresses in all black with numerous veils to hide her identity. All is revealed when Arthur Livingston hires Eunice to find a missing heiress. When she vehemently discourages him, the fun is non-stop especially with her eclectic group of inquiry agents, a bodyguard and a Pinkerton helper.
Originally wanting to marry Eunice “for her own good”, Arthur changes his opinion of Eunice: “she was a delightful mix of practical, whimsy and dry wit, with her admission about having a romantic nature adding depth to her he had not realized existed.” And what could be more romantic than a man who gifts her with Pride and Prejudice, reads it to her and “knows his way around a good kiss.”
Then there is narrowing down the list of suspects in the murder of her grandfather. “Vincent should go on the list simply because there is something shifty about a bookstore owner who doesn’t sell Jane Austen.”
What happens when Eunice decides the truth will set her free? You will have to see for yourself as you read this delightful, comedic book. You will want to read the whole series!

"Considering she'd once shot the man sitting across from her, Eunice Holbrooke was beginning to get the sneaking suspicion her past had finally caught up to her."
Thank goodness, she was completely covered in layers and layers of black fabric, complete with triple weeping veils and a disguised voice. . . . Eunice could only hope and pray that Arthur Livingston wouldn't recognize her. Not now, not ever. The exasperating man wanted to hire the Bleecker Street Inquiry Agency (her agency!) to locate a missing person, only Eunice could vouch for the fact (on a stack of Bibles, if asked) that the young woman in question wasn't missing at all, but rather hiding in plain sight. His plain sight.
Dashing off to go undercover in an attempt to avoid Mr. Livingston, Eunice finds herself in an even deeper predicament, when what to her wondering eyes should appear in her moment of need (though she would refrain from admitting it) but Arthur Livingston.
This story was absolutely delightful from beginning to end, for there is certainly no lack of entertaining conversations combining with a massive number of underlying conundrums that have more layers that Eunice's widow's weeds. Would anyone figure out anything? The crux of the matters have lain hidden under disguises for way too long; the question being, can the truth find a way to set them all free? And doggone it, Eunice and Arthur need to merge their "romantic sides" in more ways than one.

“Considering she’d once shot the man sitting across from her, Eunice Holbrook was beginning to get the sneaking suspicion her past had finally caught up with her.”
From the first sentence, I knew I’d be hooked by Jen Turano’s newest book, To Disguise the Truth. I’ve been eagerly awaiting Eunice’s story since I began reading this series, and I was definitely not disappointed. Eunice is courageous, intelligent, creative, and keeping herself hidden behind her “widow’s weeds” and “weeping veils.” When Arthur Livingston appears at the Bleecker Street Inquiry Agency wanting to hire them to find a missing heiress, he’s met his match with the mysterious Eunice—in more ways than one.
Filled with Turano’s signature humor and dry wit, this tale is a delightful and captivating adventure from start to finish. Turano is a master at creating colorful, intriguing characters and plopping them down in amusing, intriguing situations. She then proceeds to extract them from those situations with hilarious results. With adventure, suspense, a dash of romance, and a whole lot of humor, this book was a delight to read and a wonderful conclusion to the series.

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.
