A Talent for Trouble

GIVEAWAY

TURANO, JEN
A TALENT FOR TROUBLE

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 Review:

Madcap, outrageous and funny! Lots of laugh out loud moments. A Talent for Trouble is a rollicking read that kept me grinning right to the very end. Turano has her own unique formula for delivering romantic comedy and I love it!

There's a great juxtaposition between serious and ludicrous -- especially in heroine Felicia. And I just love how the outrageous bits about her character are what Grayson appreciates the most. The two of them bring every scene they are in crackling to life. They just seem to feed off each other -- Turano has created great dynamics between the two!

A secondary plot filled with danger and a few surprising twists balance out the comedy. A thrilling, light-hearted read that comes alive with love and laughter.
