I have had this book on my TBR pile for awhile now. This is first book in The Roaring Twenties trilogy; and is a cute paranormal romance set in the 1920's. It was a bit too romancy for me at times but I still enjoyed it; it was a nice, light, fun read.
The plot is fairly simple and isn't a huge part of the story; many times the plot is overshadowed by the romance. However, there are some paranormal elements in here too such as Aida’s ability to see ghosts and the Chinese curse put on Winter.
I did enjoy the two main characters and the chemistry they have, they end up in a sweet yet tumultuous romance. The story ties up at a good spot too.
Overall this was a cute paranormal romance read set in the 1920’s in San Fran. I enjoyed the setting and the chemistry between the two main characters. The plot was fairly simple though and the romance definitely overshadowed everything else. I prefer my stories to be a bit more balanced and because of that I don’t plan on reading any more books in this series. Those who enjoy romance heavy paranormal reads should check this book out.

I like Jenn Bennett's Arcadia Bell series very much. So I'm sad to report I didn't like this book very much. The writing is fine, I just felt the plot was a bit thin, a good portion of the book is really just about getting the leads together in bed. I think some people like the romance to be the *A* story line, for me, I prefer the romance to be in the background. I like the idea of the world, I just wish there had been more focus on that.
Amy Landon did a fine job reading.
