Behind the Scenes by Jen Turano

Behind the Scenes (Apart from the Crowd, #1)Book Description:
Miss Permilia Griswold, the wallflower behind "The Quill" gossip column, knows everything that goes on in the ballrooms of New York. When she overhears a threat against the estimable Mr. Asher Rutherford, she's determined to warn him. Away from society's spotlight, Asher and Permilia discover there's more going on behind the scenes than they anticipated.

My Thoughts:
This one made me laugh....quite a bit.  Permilia is a wall flower with a 'secret identity'.  She is also a columnist and overhears a plot for murder.  The problem is, the intended target doesn't believe it at all!
Oh my word, I enjoyed every one of these characters.  The author definitely knows how to write people so you want to get to know them.  Asher, yeah, I would enjoy getting to know him.  All the ladies, especially Permilia, who gave me several fits of giggles with her antics, were a joy to read.  There is also a touch of suspense in this with the murder plot.  Overall though, I found it a nice refreshing, clean read.
It was a 5/5 for me and I plan on enjoying more of this author's work.
