“Playing the Part” by Jen Turano

27 Jul

About the book:

Lucetta Plum is an actress on the rise in New York City, but is forced to abandon her starring role when a fan’s interest turns threatening. Lucinda’s widowed friend, Abigail Hart, is delighted at the opportunity to meddle in Lucetta’s life and promptly whisks her away to her grandson’s estate to hide out.

Bram Haverstein may appear to simply be a somewhat eccentric gentleman of means, but a mysterious career and a secret fascination with a certain actress mean there’s much more to him than society knows.

Lucetta, who has no interest in Abigail’s matchmaking machinations, has the best intentions of remaining cordial but coolly distant to Bram. But when she can’t ignore the strange and mysterious things going on in his house, it’ll take more than good intentions to keep her from trying to discover who Bram is behind the part he plays.

My Thoughts:

I have to admit that the plot line for this book was a little unbelievable for me, but I didn’t care because I enjoyed the book. This was an easy read, the characters were silly and I found myself laughing throughout the book. Bram came off as a bit odd, but so did Lucetta and I enjoyed the banter between the two. I didn’t really know what to expect from this book, but I enjoyed it so I would definitely read another book by Turano.

Many thanks to Bethany House for providing me with a free copy of this book for me to review. All opinions expressed are mine and mine alone.
