This was one that caught my attention since it takes place in the twenties. I will say that the depth of explanation as the writer tells you about the scenes, clothing, etc make you feel as though you are right there. You can easily since yourself standing in a speakeasy. While this is a romance it does have a touch of mystery to it that I enjoyed.
This is the second book in the series and while I hadn’t read the first I would recommend it as this one takes up just after that one. Betty and her sisters would sneak out to visit a speakeasy called the Rooster’s Nest. It is there that she meets Henry, a FBI agent.
Henry is a bit of a loner and Betty leaves him very confused. He never expected to become involved with her. I feel a little for Henry in this one since he goes from working alone (the way he likes it) to having a team of flappers and a newspaper agent. I mean that sounds like a comedy in the making.
This is simply a wonderful story! It has poor Betty agreeing to marry the man her father arranged for her. W are left (as is Betty) hoping and praying that Henry will recuse her from this farce of a arrangement. She loves Henry and he loves her but there are issues to deal with and a case to solve.
