MY REVIEW

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.

About Lauri Robinson

Lauri Robinson’s chosen genre to write is Western historical, and when asked why, she says, “Because I know I wasn’t the only girl who wanted to grow up and marry Little Joe Cartwright.”

With a degree in early childhood education, Lauri has spent three decades working in the non-profit field for Head Start, Child Abuse Intervention, the March of Dimes, and United Way. She claims the once upon a time and happily ever after premise of romance novels has always been a form of stress relief. When her husband suggested she write one, she took the challenge and has loved every minute of the journey.

Lauri lives in rural Minnesota, where she and her husband spend every spare moment with their three grown sons and their families, which includes three granddaughters, two stepgrandsons and two granddogs. She volunteers for several organizations, including her local library, and spends most fall weekends filling the freezer with homemade foodstuffs from the bountiful harvest of her husband’s green thumb. She’s a diehard Elvis fan (yes, she’s been to Graceland), and loves to spend Sundays watching NASCAR, either live or on TV. However, she says her favorite weekends are spent in the woods of northern Minnesota on the land homesteaded by her great-grandfather.

Most of her childhood was spent in western Kansas, which is the setting for several of her stories. Lauri is a member of RWA, Northern Lights Writers,and Hearts Through History Romance Writers, as well as several online writing groups. She writes for Harlequin, Mills and Boon and The Wild Rose Press.

    I’ve never been one to follow a series. Perhaps I’ve never gotten into a character or setting enough

    I’ve never read a book set in the 20s and involves the FBI so this might be a fun read for me!
