Publisher's summary

As the new secretary to a private investigation firm, Ella Quick expects to spend her days making coffee and filing paperwork, so it’s a pleasant surprise when her boss, Josie Desroches, takes her on assignments that not only open her eyes to the world but also teach her a thing or two about herself.

A sapphic historical mystery series.

Set in New York City in the Roaring Twenties during a period of social revolution for women everywhere, bringing about significant change from fashion to suffrage to sexual expression, Sapphic in the Shadows follows Ella’s adventures as she and her feisty boss solve mysteries, get entangled with drugs, prostitutes, and the mafia, and encounter the biggest, most ingenious crime organization the city has ever known.

Does it complicate things that Ella seems to be having romantic feelings for her boss? Certainly. Will it confuse matters further when Ella discovers her boss is a lesbian? A flirtatious and outlandish lesbian who regularly uses sex to get what she wants? Definitely.

Has Ella bit off more than she can chew by taking this job, or would she have been better off staying at home, hoping to snag a rich husband?

Sapphic in the Shadows - 20 bite-sized episodes of 1920s private investigator mystery.
