Review of A Talent for Trouble by Jen Turano


Book Blurb

For years, Miss Felicia Murdock's every thought and action have been in pursuit of becoming a minister's wife. When the minister she'd set her sights on has other ideas, she decides something in her life needs to change--and soon--before she wastes any more time pretending to be someone she's not. If that means spreading her wings and embracing a more lively way of life, who's to say nay?

Grayson Sumner, Lord Sefton, has had more than enough of spreading his wings and only hopes to settle into the life of a respectable New York gentleman. Prompted by some friends to lift the spirits of the disappointed-in-love Miss Murdock, he is surprised to encounter an adventurous young lady with an unfortunate knack for stumbling into troublesome situations.

Just as Grayson decides he's had quite enough of her antics, his past comes back to haunt him and his presence in Felicia's life endangers her. As they work together to extricate themselves from this latest complication, will Grayson and Felicia decide they want to spend the rest of their lives keeping one another out of trouble?

My Thoughts

After a summary like that, there's not a lot left to say about the book! I can tell you that Felicia and Grayson take us on a wild adventure in A Talent for Trouble. It’s amazing how much mischief one woman can get into but she certainly has a gallant hero watching over her.  

One thing is for sure, Jen Turano knows how to write some fast and feisty dialogue, which is actually much like Felicia’s character. She’s not fast in a bad way. She doesn't seem to slow down and think long before she acts and that irritated me after a while. I thoroughly enjoyed Grayson’s character, though. He’s a noble man, full of good intentions and faithful in his regard for others. 

There’s much to keep up with in this book and a few of the twists and turns were quite surprising. It’s the least realistic of the three so far but if you enjoy historical fiction packed with fun and faith, then you will probably enjoy A Talent for Trouble. Be sure and grab the earlier books so you can get to know the carryover characters. You’ll be in for hours and hours of fun! I'm looking forward to reading Agatha's story this year. Who is Agatha, you ask? Well, you'll just have to read the series to find out!
