A Talent for Trouble (Book 3) by Jen Turano

Jen Turano has written a fun series called The Ladies of Distinction Series.  Book 1--A Change of Fortune, Book 2--A Peculiar Circumstance and Book 3--A Talent for Trouble. 

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 Thoughts:
I really enjoyed reading books one and two.  Jen Turano was funny and clever with her writing.  By the time I got to book 3, I enjoyed the story, but it seemed too similar to the first two books.   This is really my only issue I had with this book.  I loved the characters, especially Miss Felicia.  She is such an odd ball at times and it makes her quite humorous.   I did catch myself smiling several times during the reading of this book. I would definitely recommend reading this series in order so that you can meet each character and understand all of the history between the characters.  So even though this book didn't earn a 5 stars from me, I would recommend picking it up to read.  It is delightful!

***I received this book free from the author and Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.
