A Talent for Trouble by Jen Turano

Cover Art
About the book:

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 review:

This is such an amusing story!  Felicia is so crazy and unpredictable and I loved Grayson, also, along with the other characters.  They were a fun, close-knit group to hang out with.  I really enjoyed the banter and clever conversations they engaged in.  There was excitement and danger, but also wonderful romance, humor, and hilarious antics.  I liked the themes of being yourself and accepting forgiveness from God because there's nothing you could do that He won't forgive you.  I haven't read Jen Turano's other books yet, but I'm really looking forward to it, especially since those characters were featured prominently in this book as well.  The story does work great as a stand-alone, however.  I highly recommend it if you like historical romance or humorous stories.

I received this book free from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
