Playing the Part 
"Playing The Part"
Jen Turano

Can they accept who they are behind the parts they play in time to save the day?
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.

Jen Turano writes a fantastic novel!  I thoroughly enjoyed this book.  "Playing The Part" is not at all what I was expecting, but that's a good thing!  This book had me enthralled from page one!  Just when I thought I had things figured out, the unexpected happened, really, my mouth dropped open of it's own accord because of the turn of events.

However, the fact that the men lingered in their disguises longer than necessary bothered me.  It didn't seem quite normal or realistic.  Strange, actually.  While Jen Turano probably meant it to be funny, for me it was not.

Filled with mysterious characters and happenings, witty and unpredictable circumstances, this book was a joy to read!
