A Talent for Trouble - by Jen Turano
Felicia Murdock thought she'd been called to marry a minister; until she attends his wedding to someone else. She then comes to the realization that not only was this man not for her, but she had turned herself into someone else completely while she was trying to capture his heart. Slowly, she rediscovers who she truly is, and finds that maybe being herself is what she's been meant to be all along.
I love this author, I loved this book, and I love this series. I love the quirky, spunky, adventurous heroines, and I love the men strong enough to handle them. I love that the women frequently find themselves in jail for all sorts of ridiculous reasons. Even while these books are amusing and enjoyable, however, the author embeds truth throughout. Felicia thought that being a pastor's wife, and turning herself into what she thought that looked like, was the only way to truly serve God and His people. Yet, as she rediscovers herself as God made her, she finds that there is more than one way to look while serving God, and it doesn't mean what she thought it did. I loved watching her see others' reactions as she cast off the disguise she'd put on during her infatuation with the pastor. Even Felicia hadn't realized how much of her true self she had put aside to please others.
I give this book 4 stars. I really hope the author continues this series, because I am not ready to be done with these characters.
