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.

I have loved Jen Turano's writing since her debut novel a little over three years ago, and she keeps delighting readers with her endearing characters and witty prose. Playing the Part is the third and final book in her latest series about three friends who have been taken under the wing of the widowed Abigail Hart. Although each book stands alone, recurring characters enhance the experience for those who read the entire series. Turano once again blends humor, intrigue, and romance in her unique style, resulting in a charming can't-put-it-down read. I'm now tempted to return to the first book and begin again, reading them straight through without stopping. If you have read any of Jen Turano's previous books, you know this is a must-read. If she's a new author to you, add her to your reading list without delay!
