Book Review - Behind the Scenes By Jen Turano

Behind the Scenes
By:  Jen Turano
Publisher:  Bethany House

Disclaimer:  I received this Book from the publisher, Bethany House, for free to read and review through the blogger review program at Netgalley. I was not required to give a favorable review only an honest review, nor was I compensated for my review.  All thoughts and comments in this review are my own.

Even though Permilia Griswold had been introduced into high society in New York, she was destined to be a wall flower.  However she didn’t let that deter her from writing an anonymous gossip column under the name of Miss Quill.  While at Mr. and Mrs. William K. Vanderbilt’s ball Permilia overheard a conversation threatening Asher Rutherford, a gentleman despite the fact he was the owner of a department store.  Permilia decides it is her place to find and warn Mr. Rutherford about the threat.  He refuses to believe her and dismisses her warning.  Permilia realizes he is not taking it seriously and decides to take matters into her own hands and protect him again his would-be assassins.

In this delightful story, Permilia and Asher are forced to work together.  Their journey is filled with twists and turns and Permilia’s perception of “high society” will keep you laughing.    Although she is considered a wall flower, she certainly isn’t afraid to go after what she wants.  Poor Asher doesn’t have a clue how to deal with her, but finds himself falling for this very unconventional young woman.

This is a great entertaining book.  Once you start it, you won’t want to put it down until you’ve finished the last page.  Once again Jen Turano gives us another great book!
