“A Talent for Trouble” is written by Jen Turano, and published by Bethany House. It is the third book in the “Ladies of Distinction” series, with the first being “A Change of Fortune”, the second, “A Most Peculiar Circumstance”, and the fourth, “A Match of Wits” (to be released in July of 2014). This was the first book I had read of this author’s, although I was intrigued by “A Change of Fortune”. I just never got around to reading anything by her before this. That being said, this book did very well as a standalone, and I found the author’s work comically enjoyable. She has a sense of humor, that is for sure! (Side Note again: For a taste of her works, check out her novella, “Gentleman of her Dreams”, which is currently free on Kindle.) While many of the plot points were unrealistic and something that you would find in a chick-flick, it made for a sweet read. There is still plenty of drama in each of the two main character’s lives to keep you hanging, and chemistry to keep you smiling. Overall, while somewhat unrealistic, this was a humorous read that I truly enjoyed. I will look forward to other books by this author.
Thank you to Bethany House publishers for providing me with a copy of this book to read and review. All opinions are my own; I was not required to write a positive review.
