Give me a delightful heroine, an engaging journey of self-discovery, and a healthy dose of romance and I’ll give you my undivided attention. That’s exactly what happened when I picked up Angela Terry’s new novel, The Trials of Adeline Turner.
The Trials of Adeline Turner introduces us to the warm and witty title character as she navigates her career, a new city, and her love life. Thirty-three-year-old Adeline has always played it safe, from her nose-to-the-grindstone career as a corporate attorney to her stable, secure life in Chicago. When a competitive project at her firm transplants her to San Francisco, Adeline seizes the opportunity to break out of her comfort zone—meeting new people, forging friendships, and possibly reconnecting with her high school crush. But between a potential saboteur at work, the awkward roller coaster of online dating, and the old wounds she has tried her best to move past, a fresh start may prove to be more challenging than this overachiever expected.
I’m always craving those delicious slice-of-life tales of women finding their way through new friendships, work drama, and the complex world of dating, and The Trials of Adeline Turner perfectly satisfied that sweet spot. Angela Terry’s writing is fresh, funny, and sharp, and in Adeline, she has created a character that I not only rooted and felt for, but that I wanted to hang out with. Like Adeline, I never knew what was going to happen, and through all of the ups and downs, I just loved being along for the ride.
If you’re looking for a book about finding your way, coming to terms with the past, and braving the way towards a new future, don’t miss out on The Trials of Adeline Turner.
