Playing the Part – Book Review


Playing the Part 

Author: Jen Turano

Hardback: 352 Pages

Publisher: Bethany House Publishers (March 1, 2016)



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?


My Review:

This is the first book that I’ve gotten to read by Jen Turano and I cannot say that she disappointed in in the slightest. I very much enjoyed this book! The characters were so well developed that I enjoyed getting to know each and every one of them. Nothing like fantastic characters to make up one fantastic book.

I found that this book had a great mix of humor and mystery to keep me interested until the very end. This is a fun book and is fast paced so before you know it you’ll be at the last page wishing for more. I look forward to reading more books by Jen Turano but, until then I highly recommend this novel to y’all.



I received this book free from the publisher through the Bethany House bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Happy Reading!
