Playing the Part by Jen Turano
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.
About the Author:
Jen Turano, author of the Ladies of Distinction series and the A Class of Their Own series, is a graduate of the University of Akron. She is a member of ACFW and lives in a suburb of Denver, Colorado.
My Take: I really enjoy Jen Turano's books. She always has fun and unusual characters that make the story interesting and a page turner. This book is no different. This book has a mystery to it and it is what is keeping you guessing and turning the pages. The main character Lucetta has to leave New York city and her friend sets it up so she can stay at her grandsons estate. This is where the mystery is as strange things are afoot and Lucetta becomes involved. Also Lucetta's friend wants to set up Lucetta and her grandson. Mystery and romance how can you miss. Great story and fun.
