A Talent for Trouble book review

A Talent for Trouble (Ladies of Distinction Book #3) by Jen Turano BOOK GIVEAWAY #BlogHop

Title: A Talent For Trouble

Series: Ladies of Distinction

Number in series: 3

Author: Jen Turano

Genre:  Christian Historical Fiction

Felicia Murdock , a caring, but mischievous young woman, believes God has called her to be the wife of a minister. The only problem is that the Minister Felicia thinks she is in love with marries someone else.
  Felicia  feels all alone and doesn't know what she wants out of life.
Grayson Sumner is thrown into Felicia's life despite of each other.
Can they make things work- even when danger tries to tear them apart?

What I liked about this book:

This is one of the most humorous books I have ever read!!!!
There are some extremely comical scenes that had me laughing out loud often.

I really enjoyed that some characters form previous books in this series played an important role in this book.

What I didn't like about this book:

The only thing I didn't like about this book is a cliche' I have noticed in a lot of Christian romances-

The main male character has given up on God because of his past, but he soon falls in love with a Godly woman who helps him realize his need for God's grace. The reason this bothers me is that I am convicted that a Christian should be in a relationship with another Christian. I am not trying to preach, just sharing what I feel is Biblical.

My rating:  3


  1. I like books that make me laugh out loud :)

    1. Then would would enjoy this book I think.
      Jen Turano, the author of this book, has a free e-novella on Amazon.com called 'A Gentlemen of Her Dreams' that is very funny too.

  2. I really want to read Jen's books because I have heard they are great to read when in need of a laugh! I have this one and the second one, but haven't read them yet! Thanks for sharing! I don't really like the cliche thing either.

    1. Thanks for commenting Laura!!!
      I hope if you read any of her books you will enjoy them. They are grear feel-good books:)
      I am glad to know I'm not the only one that doesn't like that type of cliche' either.
