Review: A Talent For Trouble by Jen Turano

About the book:

A Talent for Trouble by Jen Turano
Ladies of Distinction: Book 3
Bethany House

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:

For the past several years, Felicia Murdocch has been queen of the fashion faux pas after receiving a misguided compliment from a certain minister she had set her sights on. When the previously mentioned minister marries another lady Felicia decides she has had enough ribbons and feathers to last her a life time. With a new wardrobe and attitude in tow she is ready for a fresh start.
Lord Grayson Sumner has already put his wild days behind him and is looking to settle down. So when he is recruited to left Felicia’s spirits by his sister he isn’t entirely too pleased by her new found ability to create trouble, but he is unable to deny his growing attraction to her just the same.
 I was hooked on this author’s work once I started A Most Peculiar Circumstance this summer and have been looking forward to Felicia’s story. I instantly fell in love with her sass and fashion woes, although I was happy to see she actually did have a good sense of fashion. Mrs. Murdoch was also a favorite character as I always enjoy a good, matchmaking mother. Grayson was a cool and collected hero who was perfect to offset Felicia.
 The books in this series have been fun, light hearted reads that I have thoroughly enjoyed! I absolutely recommend them. While these books can be read as standalones, reading them in order really gives the full effect of the story.
