New Release: Playing the Part

(a paraphrased quote from Playing the Part by Jen Turano. designed by Rebecca Lynn)

Book Title: Playing the Part
Author: Jen Turano
Publication Date: March 1, 2016
Publisher: Bethany House

Description:
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:
Lucetta Plum is a woman of many talents; one of which is to make me laugh. The author of this book, Jen Turano, writes characters with a sense of humor, penchant for trouble, and comical personalities.

I think what I liked most about this book are the hilarious and slightly far-fetched situations the characters find themselves in. Well, that and the witty conversations shared. You are guarantied to laugh or at least chuckle throughout this book.  

Playing the Part is the last book in the series, A Class of Their Own and while I'm sad to see this series end I look forward to the start of a new one. I've thoroughly enjoyed each book by Jen Turano and this one was no exception.

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Note: I received this book through NetGalley. http://netgalley.
