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 Thoughts

What a super fun and engaging read! Jen Turano knocked this story out of the park. I have been eagerly awaiting Eunice’s story since book 1, and I can say To Disguise the Truth was well worth the wait. I loved everything about this book: the plot is highly engaging and fast-paced, the characters are FANTASTIC, and the themes are quite timely and relatable. I like that my emotions went all over the place with this book. When Eunice is undercover in the asylum, I was terrified. When she takes an entire group of abusive nurses on, I was cheering out loud! The romance that blossoms between Arthur and Eunice is slow-going, but so satisfying and made my heart SO super happy. And there are tons and tons of moments where I laughed out loud. Truly, this book had me feeling all the feels.

Eunice is one of the coolest heroines I’ve ever read. She is SO capable. Yes, she is impressively beautiful and intelligent, but her most impressive quality is her James Bond-like ability to take care of herself. And Arthur is a great hero. I love how clueless he is about his feelings until they wallop him in the face. I love how big and strong he is, and how this gives Eunice a sense of safety that she really hasn’t ever felt before. It makes me weak in the knees when a hero is a protector! Lastly, I love the many excellent themes weaved throughout the storyline. My favorite is the discussion in regard to disguising ourselves in order to feel a sense of control. We all wear different masks throughout our lives for many unique reasons. Some of us, however, wear masks when we really shouldn’t. When we get too comfortable in our masks all we’re really doing is isolating ourselves from real love, friendship, intimacy, and/or help. It is pretty important for our mental and emotional well-being to learn when to mask and when to trust those around us. What a really timely reminder for us all!

To Disguise the Truth by Jen Turano is an excellent read. I loved every minute of this storyline and will miss spending time with these characters. What a great end to a truly delightful series! I highly, highly recommend this fantastic story, and cannot wait to see what Turano has in store for us readers.
