At what my awesome friend Lois Kasznia just did! Not Just an Act, now available. If you haven't read her books
yet, you really should!
Deanna Titone, New Jersey native, has just inherited Hideaway Villa—an
upscale B & B right outside Branson, Missouri—from her cousin. This
stroke of good luck allows her to quit her stressful job and start her
life over. Running this business should be easy, right?
No one warned Deanna about the bizarre demands guests could make
while booking reservations, or staying overnight, nor about the quirky
staff—including the handsome handyman, Gus Swenson, who mysteriously
showed up on her first day. After a couple of trying days, Deanna is
ready to give up.
Chet Lancaster is one of Hollywood's famous actors. Recently, Chet
has watched his career, and his life, tailspin into tabloid fodder.
Reluctantly, he accepts the role of an ex-con turned handyman for his
next movie in the hopes of reviving his career. In order to research his
upcoming role, his agent sends him undercover to Hideaway Villa as Gus
Swenson. The catch—no one can know his true identity.
Keeping the truth from Deanna is harder than Chet could have
imagined, especially after the sparks fly between them. Can he convince
her that his love is true, and not just an act?
