Product Description

Determined that something needs to change--and soon--Felicia discovers she is finally ready to spread her wings and embrace life the way she's always wanted.

Grayson Sumner--or Lord Sefton, as he's officially known--has had more than enough of spreading his wings and only hopes to settle into the life of a normal, respectable New York gentleman. Prompted by some well-meaning friends to lift the spirits of the disappointed-in-love Miss Murdock, he is surprised to encounter a young lady who seems to have become quite adventurous and quite determined to get herself into all sorts of troublesome situations.

Publisher's Description

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?

    For four years Felicia Murdock has believed that God has ordained her to be Reverend Frasers' wife. With that goal in mind she sets about to become the perfect ministers wife changing everything about her from her personality to her wardrobe. However when the good Reverend weds another and her mother invites Lord Grayson Sumner to escort Felicia to an event, Felicia begins to wonder if God doesn't have another path for her life.

    With a horrifying past that he feels no woman should have to endure, Grayson Sumner, Lord Sefton, has sworn off women. That is until he meets Felicia. With her endless energy and adventurous spirit, Grayson begins to feel the ice that has encased his heart begin to thaw and feelings that he thought he buried long ago start to resurface.

    Truth be told, I wasn't really impressed by Grayson when we read about him in the authors previous books but I actually enjoyed the character in this book. The backstory and the strengths and weakness that the author choose to for him worked extremely well. He turned out to be quite the unexpected hero.

    I thought that Felicia and Grayson worked well together. They were believable as a couple and it was amusing to read about them. I also enjoyed the scenes with Grayson's adopted daughter Ming. Being three years old, I thought her character was written as a real three year old would be, which made the scenes she was in very authentic.

    The story overall was well written and great fun to read. There were many place that I found myself laughing out loud. But I also found a couple of places in the story that were a little over the top. The social issue that the author chose to include in her story was something I have not read in too much Christian fiction. The author was both honest and real about the effects that it had on the people of the time.

    This author has quickly become one of my favorites. She has a great flair for the dramatic which is can be a great change of pace. If you like historical fiction I believe that you would enjoy this book.

    This book is part of a series. You do not have to read the others but I would recommend it as they are all similar. The characters are enjoyable! I liked how the conversations were written, they flowed well and all made sense! I gave this book 5/5 stars. The setting is so well written! I loved how the descriptions were so simple yet you really could see the buildings and outdoors. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys historical Christian fiction and those who enjoy series by the same authors.

    I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.

    This review was written for A Talent For Trouble - eBook.
    All the other reviewers on my blog were gaga over Jen Turano's writing. Felicia and Grayson are adorable together. Quirky lovable characters, quick-paced storyline, wonderful love story--you'll be thumbing through this story as fast as you can read it just to find out what happens next! You'l be holding your breath as you wonder if the characters will be able to get in and out of the opium dens, they are investigating, okay. Highly recommend! My only complaint is that in paperback the print is rather light. I'd recommend ebook version if you have eye problems.

    Jen Turano has written another fantastic story! With lovable characters, witty dialogue, and an interesting plot, this story has it all. The story was humorous. The mystery surrounding Grayson's past added excitement to the story.

    I loved Felicia's character. A lot of people can relate to her story. She is a strong woman with a deep faith and a "talent for trouble." The circumstances she finds herself in are hysterical. Grayson adds mystery to the story. He is compassionate and gruff at the same time. The romance that blossoms between them is sweet.

    The message of the story is two-fold. Make sure you pray and listen for God's direction in your life. Second, God will forgive all sin, big or small. It's all equal in His eyes. If He forgives you, you can most certainly forgive yourself.

    Overall, I highly enjoyed this story and look forward to reading more!

    A TALENT FOR TROUBLE by Jen Turano is another wonderful Inspirational Historical Fiction set in 1881 New York City. #3 in the "Ladies of Distinction" but can be read as a stand alone. See,"A Change of Fortune", and "A Most Peculiar Circumstance".

    This is the tale of Miss Felicia Murdock and Grayson Sumner, Lord Sefton and what a tale. Fast paced. Filled with faith, healing, forgiveness, adventure, romance, trouble, danger, and love.

    With strong characters and an interesting storyline, you will not be disappointed with "A Talent for Trouble".

    Received as a gift.
