This book was a bit of a mixed bag for me. Frasier kept my interest, and she did have unique twists throughout. The story overall, however, was simply good, not great. It’s definitely worth the read, but somewhat predictable at times. I’d give it slightly under 4 stars as I would have liked to know more from the lead character’s kidnapping, rather than her life afterwards.
Beatrice planned on a quiet summer, studying for her medical school entrance exams at her uncle’s home on Long Island. Little did she know her cousin Hero has been running a failing speakeasy out of the basement with the help of a handsome bartender, a talented blues singer, and a strangely enticing novelist.
Daring car chases, underhanded dealing with seedy crooks, and lavish parties are daily occurrences in the reckless underground world of 1920’s prohibition. And with a rival gang gunning for them and the cops close on their heels, it’ll be the most dangerous summer of their lives.
But there’s always time for a little romance…
This sparkling retelling of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing is an uproarious battle of wits with a 1920’s twist.
Pick up the new book from, McKelle George.
