Playing the part by Jen Turano

Playing the Part
Playing the Part (Bethany House, March 2016)
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.
My opinion: I had read some of Ms. Turano's books in the past and was not a huge fan, but I was willing to give her another try and I am glad I did. This book was a charming, it had just enough mystery and intrigue to keep it interesting and I liked the characters who were kind of quirky but very enjoyable. This book was much better than I was anticipating and was a good read. I received this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
