The previous book I read by Jen Turano was good, but not great. However, reading "Behind the Scenes," I could not put the book down. Even with a great portion of the book taking place in one evening, the story went at a quick pace. I loved the struggle behind a woman balancing her faith with the strength and ideals of a "modern" woman. Permilia Griswold secretly writes a society column for a major newspaper, using her wallflower status to her best advantage. But how does romance fit in with independence? Especially when death threats collide the two. Although the resolution to the thrilling page-turner was a bit odd and a slight let-down, Turano created likeable characters and ridiculously fun situations that most readers will love.
