Review of "Diamond in the Rough" by Jen Turano

Over my winter break, I have been enjoying Diamond in the Rough by Jen Turano. The second book in her American Heiresses series, this book is about a woman named Poppy Garrison, who leaves her farm life in Pennsylvania to go to New York for the social Season. Her grandmother is determined for her to become the diamond of the first water, but with her constant mishaps, that dream her grandmother has for her seems impossible to achieve. Meanwhile, Lord Reginald Blackburn has arrived in the city from London to help his cousin find an American heiress. Due to the proper manners he possesses, Poppy's grandmother pays him to teach said manners to Poppy. But with Poppy always landing herself in trouble, and with his heart also included in that trouble, the task is proven to be more than what either of them bargained for. Jen Turano certainly did not disappoint in her book. From the very beginning, the readers find Poppy already involved in some sort of trouble. During a Quadrille, Popp
