Jen Turano's Playing the Part is an entertaining story where you just never know what will happen next.
Everything -- from the characters to the setting to the plot of the story -- is engaging and often unexpected. Practically all the characters have secrets or hidden stories that come out in unexpected and very often humorous ways.
I did not notice ahead of time that Playing the Part was book #3 in a series. It was not until near the very end of the story that I even realized there was a back story to some of the characters. Reading the earlier stories in the series would be interesting, but this book worked fine as a stand alone.
I would recommend Playing the Part if you're looking for fun, mystery, romance, and the unexpected.

About the Book:
Can they accept who they are behind the parts they play in time to save the day?
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.
