Felicia has spent the last 4 years of her life reinventing herself into a woman that she feels would be the perfect minister's wife. Unfortunately when the minister she has set her eyes on marries another woman Felicia believes that she will now become an old maid at the ripe old age of 24. Felicia is determined that if there is ever to be a man in her life he must accept her as she is.

Grayson has spent many years in China dealing in the opium trade. When a rival family murders his employer and family Grayson escapes with his daughter to America. Not able to forgive himself for being a part of the opium trade he believes also that God will never forgive him.

When Felicia and Grayson meet there is an instant attraction. But Felicia has a talent for getting into trouble and Grayson is leery of becoming involved with any woman. When curiosity about Grayson's past has Felicia visiting an opium den to dig up answers Grayson is less than happy to have to rescue her. When his past catches up to him will it put both of them in danger?

I found A Talent for Trouble to be an entertaining read. Felicia's character had me laughing out loud at some of her antics. With humorous dialogue and a bit of danger and romance thrown into the mix A Talent for Trouble was enjoyable to read. This is book #3 in the Ladies of Distinction series. I haven't read the first two books. While I did enjoy the humor of the story I did find a couple of things that were a bit over the top. Having the characters cross-dress to disguise themselves while visiting an opium den was a bit much for me. While it did lend some humor to the situation I just found it a bit false to the story. Other than that I enjoyed the romance between Grayson and Felicia and liked their characters very much.

Thanks to Bethany House publishers through NetGalley for my review copy of A Talent for Trouble. This review is my honest opinion.
