About the book:

Playing the Part (Bethany House, March 2016)

Can they accept who they are behind the parts they play in time to save the day?

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. Lucetta'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 Review:
I am a huge fan of Jen Turano's books as they are full of humor, romance, and wonderful characters.  Jen's latest book is no exception, and "Playing the Part" immediately drew me into the story and into Lucetta's life.  Lucetta must escape her life for a bit when there is a fan who becomes too intense and her friend takes her to her grandson's home.  Bram is not who Lucetta expected and thought he was at first.  This just adds to the story complete with individuals at his home whom are a little odd and of course funny!  Throw in suspense and this story is a winner!
Jen's books are such a great escape from everyday day life and take the reader on an adventure.  I love how she is able to bring the time period alive in this book as well as each of the characters.  I have really enjoyed this series and this could be read as a stand-alone novel, but I highly recommend reading the other books and quite honestly Jen's books are not to be missed!
