A Talent for Trouble

About the Book
Miss Felicia Murdock firmly believed her destiny was to become a minister's wife. When the minister on whom she had set her sights marries another lady, Felicia is forced to take a close look at her life and comes to a few uncomfortable conclusions. 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.

Intent on remaining independent, Felicia is reluctant to accept Grayson's help, especially as she finds herself developing feelings for him. However, just as Grayson decides he's had quite enough of her antics, his past comes back to haunt him and his presence in her life has endangered Felicia. Will Grayson and Felicia decide they want to spend the rest of their lives keeping one another out of trouble?(Goodreads)
My Review
I am a huge fan of Jen Turano, her past two books have been excellent, so of course I was excited to read this one!
While I still think the first book is my favorite, this book is full of great humor, history, and fun characters. Talent for Trouble takes a historical romance out of the ordinary and helps land proper young women in jail, opium dens, pubs, and a dark past. I love how the author ties her stories together, while you don't have to read the books separately, it's recommended in order to understand the story fully. 
Felicia irritated me at first but I came to enjoy her character and Grayson is one of my favorite characters Jen has written about. 
In any case if you love a bit of humor and historical romance this is the book for you!!
"I received this book from Bethany House for free in exchange for an honest review." 
 Check out my reviews on the first two books: A Change of Fortune and A Most Peculiar Circumstance.
