A Talent for Trouble by Jen Turano

Title: A Talent for Trouble (Ladies of Distinction #3)

Note: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.

     Another great romantic comedy by Jen Turano.

     Miss Felicia Murdock has spent four years trying to live her life in a way that the minister she believes God wants her to marry will notice her. Of course a minister’s wife must be demure and willing to work hard in the church and in charitable endeavors. When the minister she has set her sights on marries another young lady she must reconsider her whole life.

     Grayson Sumner has had his fill of adventure and wants to settle into the life of a respectable New York gentleman. When he is encouraged to spend time with Miss Murdock in hopes of lifting her spirits he is surprised to encounter an adventurous young lady with an unfortunate knack for stumbling into trouble.

     When Grayson’s past comes back to haunt him while in the presence of Felicia will they be able to extricate themselves from the danger that arises? Will Grayson come to terms with his past and find forgiveness for the mistakes that he believes cannot be forgiven?

     Jen Turano has a remarkable talent for developing great characters. Though many times they do not behave in the manner that I have come to expect high society people in 1881 to behave they are definitely fun and extremely amusing. The friendships that have developed between the characters from the earlier stories in this series are very evident in this book as well.

     After my last review I received a comment from my sister that I seem to rate everything with 5 stars. I would just like to take a moment to explain that I’ve been reading lots of books for so many years now that I’m very aware of the style of books I enjoy. Therefore I do have a tendency to select books to read according to those tastes. This leads me to thoroughly enjoy and want to rate most books I read very highly. Please don’t dismiss my reviews just because most of them (all so far since starting this blog) receive 5 stars.

     Now that I’ve explained that, I again want to give a 5 star rating to this novel. It is a great book to read when you are feeling down and need to have something to smile and even laugh about.
