There's nothing better than a funny, book of romance that's not really about romance! When I received the book, Playing the Part by Jen Turano, I examined the cover first; that's what I do. The rich red of the stage drapes, the wha- periwinkle of Lucetta's jacket- I loved. It was easy on the eyes and held me captive. Even her smirk, as though she knew something I didn't - the joy within the pages were for me.
Two chapters into this book and the main character is already on the run from men. A few men! It's both hilarious and dangerous for Lucetta Plum's livelihood! Her stepfather's gambled her away after trying to hand over her mother's home, while the owner of her current residence, Ms. Hart (a beloved friend) continuously tries to 'hook her up' with eligible bachelors! All Lucetta wants is to be on stage with her fellow performers and stay a woman of her own right. So to stay in control, she leaves New York.
I am crazy about this book! You know there's something about a story when you can sit down and before you know it, be 100 pages into the story, in one sitting! That was me with this book Saturday morning. From being chased by Geoffrey the goat (he hates dresses), having a cannon shot at you for trespassing, hiding out in a
supposedly haunted castle, to being proposed to just to throw another man off your trail- this book has fun written all over it.
I also love that it carries Christian qualities without preaching to you. Just thinking that God has a plan for you, and places obstacles in your life for another to help you overcome them is perfect. The story is comedy, romance, mystery and more than excellent. I finished the book in a couple days- which was easy to do since it's dimensions (5.4 X 8.4) allow the book to sit open softly without destroying the spine. It's one of those paperbacks that's light, easy to hold and read.
I'm telling you, you will love this book. It's a gothically, hilarious advenventure!📚
