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.
Playing the Part by Jen Turano was a great conclusion to her latest series A Class of Their Own. Lucetta Plum is a great character and it's great finally getting to read her love story. Bram is also a very fun character to follow around. I mean the first time Bram and Lucetta meet Bram's wearing an eye patch for no apparent reason at all! Who wouldn't be intrigued by that? Playing the Part is a wonderfully humorous story filled to the brim with mystery and romance. If you've ever read any books by Jen than you can look forward to the same wild ride you get with any of her books! Pick up Playing the Part, you won't be disappointed!
5 out of 5. A playful Afternoon Snack!
I received a copy of this book from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
