In Behind the Scenes, Miss Permilia Griswold has been cast aside as a wallflower at the society events during the social season. But she really doesn't mind since she doesn't care to become a part of the fashionable set. When an opportunity comes to use her anonymity at these fashionable events, she jumps at the chance. Her job is to write a column for the New York Sun and detail events that the public would love to know about that happen behind the closed doors of society. In order to maintain her cover, she writes under the assumed name of "Miss Quill." Of course this creates quite the stir in society, and if anyone where to find out, she would certainly be cast out of society and possibly bring her family to ruin. But when Permilia overhears a murder plot to harm Mr. Asher Rutherford, a local department store owner, she is determined to intervene and notify him of the danger that lurks ahead.
Jen's books have a way of making me smile as I read them. The main characters in her books have such a quirky personality that lead to some hilarious scenes. And it really doesn't take much imagination to envision these scenes since Jen's use of words paints a clear picture of the comical situation the characters have found themselves in. This book is just fun to read and I would definitely recommend it to pick up for your summer reading. I was hooked after the first few pages and had a hard time putting the book down. Be sure to watch for the next book in this series, Out of the Ordinary, coming out November 2017.
