Book Review: Playing the Part

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

About the book:

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.

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 Opinion

Jen Turano is known to make humorous, funny romantic books and she brings that again in Playing the Part.

Playing the Part is the 3rd book in the A Class of Their Own series. I have read the other two and enjoyed them as well. This is a stand alone book but it helps to understand the other characters in the book if you have read the first two books.

This book is full of humor and is fast paced with lots of characters. Sometimes it did seem to get a little overwhelming and move so fast that the characters and the plot seemed a little over the top.

I still really like the story line but I think the books need to slow down a little. If you like funny situation, fun characters and lots going on in the book, you will LOVE Jen Turano's books!
