Playing the Part
By Jen Turano

Lucetta Plum is an actress on the rise in New York City, but must abandon her starting role when a fan's interest turns threatening. Lucetta's windowed 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 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?

Jen Turano is the author of seven books, including the Ladies of Distinction and A Class of Their Own series. Her novel, After a Fashion, is a Booklist Top 10 Romance of 2015 and a nominee in the 2015 RT Book Reviews Reviewer's Choice Awards. She makes her home in Denver, Colorado, with her husband and son. 

I'm always interested in a historical romance, but sometimes they can get to be a little bit of a drag. You always see what's coming, and it just isn't interesting. Playing the Part is different. Jen Turano does a fantastic job of making the story jump off the page, and you can't help but love the main character Lucetta. While there is a bit of romance going on the whole book is fun and there's some mystery too. If you like Change of Heart or The Jazz Files you'll love Playing the Part.
