Playing a Part – Jen Turano

About this Book


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

At first glance, Bram Haverstein appears to be a gentleman of means–albeit an eccentric one–but a mysterious career and a secret fascination with a certain actress mean there’s much more to him than society knows.

While Lucetta has no interest in Abigail’s matchmaking machinations, she can’t ignore the strange things going on in Bram’s house and the secrets he hides. As the hijinks and hilarity that Bram, Lucetta, and their friends are swept into take a more dangerous turn, can they accept who they are behind the parts they play in time to save the day?


 

My Review

I found this a thoroughly enjoyable story.  The characters were fun and the story was entertaining. The story had humor and it had my favorite thing, mystery. It was a light hearted easy read.

This appears to be a book three of a series, but I felt like the story stood on its own. The way the author focuses was on Lucetta and what she was facing with her step father and unwanted suitor I didn’t feel lost. This story made me want to read the others in the series.

I loved Bram. He was mysterious, yet extremely kind to those less fortunate.  I can imagine him as an extremely handsome man who doesn’t really realize it. I didn’t see his secret before the author shared it.

If you enjoy historical fiction that is light hearted with mystery, love, and some adventure I would recommend this one. This was my first introduction to this author and I look forward to more from her.

I love to read, especially mystery books. Though in the past couple of years I've been a part of the ACFW Book Club and have found some wonderful writers. It's been fun to interact with authors.

Welcome! I appreciate your thoughts!
