Litfuse Review:Playing The Part by:Jen Turano
About the Book:
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. Lucinda'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.
Lucetta Plum has worked hard to earn her worth as an actress. She has many admirers but some are willing to find ways to have her as their own. Her step-father slips up once and now she finds herself in a mix of things that is definitely a threat for her safety. She confides in her dear widowed friend, Abigail Hart, who has the perfect solution.
Bram Harverstein enjoy's his eccentric life in his castle, its quiet and a way from people. So when a bunch of ruckus is stirred up behind a lady claiming she is his grandmother and her odd driver, Bram knows something is up. After a few surprising baths in the moat, he learns that the driver is none other than Lucetta Plum herself. Bram can't believe the notorious actress is at his home, but after her quickly stating how she feels about admirers, he learns that he must hold his excitement in.
Lucetta is quite tired of Abigail's matchmaking plots, but maybe her grandson isn't so bad after all. With a scary man searching for her high and low, Lucetta knows she must get good and settled in at the castle, despite the constant amusing shenanigans.
Playing The Part is book three of the series A Class Of Their Own. I really enjoyed this book. And I definitely loved the part where Geoffrey came in, he is the best! This is the first book I have read from this author and I really loved it. I will be looking forward to reading more of her books.
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author.
