Loraine4 Stars Out Of 5Great chemistry and laugh out loud situations.February 6, 2019LoraineGreat chemistry and laugh out loud situations fill the pages of this story. If you have known quirky people in life, you will love these fictional ones. Permilia and Asher first meet in the novella At Your Request and sparks fly. What fun it was to watch that continue in their story here. Full review is at my website.
Sandra Burson5 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful ReadAugust 8, 2018Sandra BursonQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I love Jen Turano. She has to be my favorite author. My daughters too. I can't wait for her next book, and this one was no exception. She grabs my attention and I hold on until the last page. I find myself, several times laughing until tears come. My daughter and I often challenge to see who can finish her book first. My only complaint, there is too many months until her next release. ;-)

Behind the scenes is the first book in the Apart from the crowd series.
Wealthy Permilia Griswold has now found a productive way to satisfy her step mother's attempts to get her to fit into New York society and to fund her favorite charity. She has taken a writer's position on a prominent New York paper as a society columnist. Using a pen name, her column has become widely popular because she has intimate knowledge on many of her subjects. But when her "nose for news" leads her to overhear a plot to harm local businessman Asher Rutherford, that's when the fun really starts. Asher doesn't believe Permilia, so she does the only thing she can, she follow him on his day to day activities to make sure that no harm comes to him.
It was hard for me trying to picture Asher and Permilia fitting together as a couple until about the middle of the book. Once they found their footing with each other, the book just flew by. They worked well together to solve the mystery. I loved the cover of this book. It was so elegant. Although this is a light read, I would not hesitate to recommend this book.
KimP5 Stars Out Of 5A Delightful ReadJanuary 30, 2018KimPQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Behind the Scenes by Jen Turano is the first book in the Apart from the Crowd series. Jen has created another laugh-out-loud masterpiece. Miss Permilia Griswold is one of the ladies of the wallflower section. Not having been taken in by high society Permilia listens for tidbits of information that she can use in her Miss Quill society gossip column. Overhearing a murder plot is not what she had in mind and losing her slipper only puts her in more danger. Since, Mr. Asher Rutherford isnt taking her warning seriously she takes it upon herself to watch his back. This book was a delight to read. You get a glimpse of the 1880s high society, with a light touch of romance and suspense. The storyline keeps moving until the very end. I cant wait for the next one!
I received this book from Bethany House publishers in exchange for my honest review.
Debbie WilderSalinas, CAAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A laugh-out-loud funny historical romantic comedy!December 27, 2017Debbie WilderSalinas, CAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This wonderful book is filled with an incredible cast of quirky characters! I love both of the main characters especially. Many of the names are so unusual that just saying them out loud put a smile on my face. I have no idea how the author came up with them.
Miss Permilia Griswold has found her own way to make her life more tolerable. She has even found a way to feel that she is contributing to the world. I was extremely amused by her antics. It was very clear from the beginning that she was in a very real sense a fish-out-of-water. As the story progressed more and more information is revealed as to how she was thrust into such an awkward position.
Mr. Asher Rutherford is truly considered one of the highest level of those in high society. He is keeping his own secret that he feels would ruin that standing if it ever got out. I think that his choice of who to have as his closest friend brought me much amusement.
The plot of the story is delightful. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this marvelous story. I was kept guessing about many aspects of the suspected danger Asher was in simply because of the twists the story took.
