A Talent For Trouble
Ladies Of Distinction book 3
by Jen Turano
-From the back cover-
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 his fill of spreading his wings and and only hopes to settle into the the life of a respectable New York gentleman. Prompted by 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 each other out of trouble?
This series just keeps getting better and better! The comedy, the romance, the historical settings! I have read quite a few historical fiction books over the last few years and I have to say that Jen Turano's style of writing is like a breath of air. It's fresh, it's funny, and yet it stays true to the best in Christian historical fiction. I started reading this series with book 2, A Most Peculiar Circumstance, and each lively story is eagerly anticipated and thoroughly enjoyed.
This Book earned a 4.5 Bark rating.

But it all comes crashing to an end with the sound of bells. So she decides to change not only her wardrobe but her entire life. The world doesn't quite know what it is in for... and Grayson is starting to find out.
Grayson's life is pretty orderly now, his adventures behind him. He suffers from a heavy load of guilt and is trying to atone for his failings. Along comes Felicia and turns everything up-side-down. He is no longer sure if he is coming or going. The only thing he does know is, that girl's driving skills terrify him!
