Book Review: Behind The Scenes
Author: Jen Turano
Release Date: April, 2017
Genre: Inspirational Historical Romance
I have always sung the praises of Jen Turano. Her poise and the graceful way she brings about the characters with just enough intrigue, mystery, and romance always make for interesting books. When I saw that I would have the opportunity to once again review her story I was beside myself with joy. I waited by the mailbox with unfettered joy and counted down the days until I could read this story.
Behind The Scenes is the story of Permilia Griswold, a timid wallflower that is ever accustomed to hiding behind anything in the available vicinity and watching others at balls, parties, and pretty much anything in the name of society. Her one problem? She can't seem to speak when she gets around most men.
Permilia is the epitome of a successful woman. She owns a newspaper column under the pseudonym "Miss Quill." The interesting thing is that no one knows she owns this column, or so she thinks. In enters Mr. Asher Rutherford. He owns a very high-scale and influential new department store. When Permilia overhears something distressing fixing to come upon Mr. Rutherford's person she can't help but intervene.
I won't say anymore, because I want to give you a chance to actually read it for yourself. You can purchase it here. on Amazon, orrrr you can win it in this GIVEAWAY! along with a 25$ gift card to Barnes and Nobles, and a few other things.
My personal thoughts on the book: It was interesting. Hilarious. Something I've come to expect from Turano. She has a way with words, no doubt about it. Every other sentence will probably have you doubled over from laughter. The only thing I didn't enjoy was the way it seemed to be like any other regency era novel. It seemed as though she ran out of ideas in which the way the story should go. I'll let you read it for yourself though and let me know what you think in the comments below. :)
I would give it a four out of five stars. Simply because even though it wasn't my most enjoyable read of the season they certainly were some of my favorite characters. I will say that this wasn't one of these books that I cried when it ended. I laughed all the way until the end. Let me know what you think!
