Bobbed hair. Short skirts. Cool jazz. Dark speakeasy. Anything goes. Meet the flappers, Gloria, Clara, Lorraine... and the rich young boys who love and loathe them.
From the Hardcover edition.
I posi-lutely love this series! When I read the first book, I had a hard time getting into it until Gloria and Jerome started falling for each other as well as Clara and Marcus. I found the whole rich lifestyle and stuffy, grandiose parties boring, but this book had so much more!
Gloria's life has totally changed from when she lived in Chicago. She now lives in New York with Jerome and all the while she has to steal and hide to make it. Lorraine is now in charge of a speakeasy in New York called The Opera House. Clara lives in New York in Brooklyn Heights and she's working hard to stay away from her old flapper ways while Marcus lives in Manhattan wishing she would move up there near him. Vera and Evan come to New York to find Jerome and Gloria to warn them that a murderer is on the loose looking for them!
Jobs are what causes monumental changes in the characters' lives. Lorraine is actually working for Macarelli and trying to lure Gloria and Jerome into an act that may be their last. Clara starts working for the Manhattanite- a magazine where she is a gossip columnist, this thrust her back into her old flapper ways and breaks Marcus' heart. Jerome and Gloria take a job at the Opera House with no idea that they have walked right in a trap!
On Gloria's debut night, will it be curtains for her and Jerome?
