Publisher's Summary

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.

Fabulous

Full of humor, an amazing cast of characters including a collection of lovable animals, a mystery, danger and a villain, this goes down as one of my favorite audible books this year! Heck the entire series is not to be missed! Of course Jan Tirana has become one of my favorite authors and Nancy Peterson is beyond compare with her A-1 narrations!

Seriously do not miss this series! You can thank me later! The only complaint I have is that I wish it could continue on!

Good but not my favorite

Jen Turano is one of my favorite authors but I must confess this narrator isn’t my favorite. I don’t care for her with this style. Nancy Peterson is good in more dramatic stories and she doesn’t pull off the humor.
Saying all that I did enjoy the book, it just wasn’t my favorite.

❤️❤️❤️

This is my favorite of Jen’s books so I decided to purchase the audiobook so I can listen on the go. Nancy did a great job with the pacing and various voices, bringing Jen’s awesome characters to life.

Nice story with excellent narration

While I didn’t enjoy this story as much as I did the others in this series, it was still an enjoyable read and a book that I would recommend reading.

The audio narration was excellent and truly brought the story to life.
