Review of Playing the Part by Jen Turano

Spring is here!!  If you are looking for a great read. . . here is one . . . .

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?


I was privileged to review Jen Turano's new book,Playing the Part. Jen Turano is one of my favorite authors and I have been anxiously awaiting the third book in her series A Class of Her Own.  Playing the Part did not disappoint as I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. 

 Playing the Part is part romance, part mystery, part adventure and filled with comic moments.  I laughed out loud throughout the book. Playing The Part has rich interesting characters who were extremely fun to read about.  Lucretta Plum, the main character, is a lovable character.  I imagine her being someone whose hair is never out place even in the most crazy of situations which there were many in this book.  In Playing the Part we learn more of Lucretta and her interesting past.  I felt like I was learning more about a friend I had only known on the surface from the other books in this series. 

It is the third in the Class of Her Own series, but you do not need to have read the first two books to enjoy it.  I highly recommend Playing the Part.

I was given this book by Bethany House to post an honest review.
