As usual, a lovely, lively, and entertaining confection of a read from Jen Turano. I would compare this novel to "Divinity" which is a fantastic delightful candy. Like Divinity, this read is a frothy, light, slightly nutty, and an altogether enjoyable treat! I love forward to Jen Turano's next hi...

This book is a fun frolic in Gilded Age New York City. I have thoroughly enjoyed each of Jen's books that I've read, and this one continued in the same vein. Crazy heroines who don't fit into the Gilded Age aristocracy and heroes who aren't quite sure what to make of the heroines. Miss Permilia G...

Another laugh-out-loud read!! I don’t always find authors to be humorous, but Jen Turano has it down. I got many strange looks from my family when I just couldn’t hold back a giggle (or ten). I would say that Behind the Scenes is definitely a character-driven novel. I fell in love with Permilia,...

When Jen Turano is at the helm, you can always count on much laughter. She spotlights the already-extreme quirks of Gilded Age high society and turns them into the most outlandish tongue-in-cheek version of themselves. Her writing is a mix of Georgette Heyer and P.G. Wodehouse but set a bit on it...

I really enjoyed this newest book by Jen Turano. With her consistent style of almost slapstick humor and the ever present mystery, you'll laugh your way through this book and sigh with contentment when you are done. Miss Permilia Griswold is a delightful character with a healthy dose of common sen...

For Permilia Griswold, being a wallflower is not a bad thing. She stays on the fringes of society. She shows efforts to be a lady to her stepmother and she gets the information she needs to write her society column for the newspaper. It is usually a safe position to be in, until she overhears the...

I've generally enjoyed Jen's books, they are unique and she has a writing style like non other. I feel disappointed though with this book. Tedious and one of the slowest moving plots I've read recently, I had no desire to pick it up. Hence taking me over a week to finish. Several times I consider...

I had high hopes for this book but it really let me down. I always hate to give less than three stars, but the writing was poor, the dialogue was stilted, and the characters were flat. Permilia's awkwardness was really exaggerated. Asher irritated me - considering that he was only meeting her for...

Since this book was my first by Jen Turano, I didn't quite know what to expect. I'll be honest. I still don't. Let me explain why. First, I’ll start with the plots. Turano began with a discreet gossip columnist at society functions and built upon that. At the event that opens this book, you see Pe...

About this book: “After spending the last six years banished to the wallflower section of the ballroom, Miss Permilia Griswold has finally figured out a way to pass the time at all the New York high-society events she attends. Under the pseudonym "Miss Quill," she is the author of society gossip c...
