A Talent for Trouble by Jen Turano

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 was so excited to read this book and once I started I barely took anytime away from it! Jen Turano never fails to deliver a book that is well-written and extremely funny so it was no surprise that this book was both! I love how all of the characters of the books are all friends with each other so we are constantly getting to see the before and afters of the characters relationships! Felicia and Grayson were both characters that you hadn't gotten to know too well but you could tell they were going to be awesome-and they were!

I loved watching Felicia find her true self after years of trying to make her self into the perfect wife for the pastor she'd set her sights on! I wasn't quite sure what to make of the Felicia we'd met in the previous two books but she was awesome in this one! Her actions had me laughing so much especially when she did things that she claimed her mother said she was good at! And Grayson's reactions were  priceless! It amused me greatly when he always told her exactly what he thought about things even when it could be considered rude and she actually liked it! Speaking of Grayson, he was great! I loved how he was constantly doing things that Eliza wanted him to do that threw him into Felicia's path. And once again all off the minor characters were great fun especially the characters from the first two books, Zayne, Agatha! I can not wait for their book! So in summary it was an amazing hysterical book that I absolutely loved-but then I expected no less from this author!

Jen-Thank you! I can't wait for both Agatha's book and this new series! I can't tell you how cool it will be to have a character named after me! Probably the most awesome thing to ever happen to me! Thanks!!
