Publisher's Summary

Set during the flamboyant anything-goes era of 1920s America, these three historical romance tales are filled with intriguing characters and rich imagery from the time period - with flappers, jazz music, gangsters, and lavish wealth. Escape to a different decade today with the compelling stories of the Canary Club Anthology.
Gilded Cage
Masie, the flaxen-haired daughter of notorious bootlegger Dutch Schultz, returns home from boarding school to find her family in crisis. Her mother is dangerously unstable, her father's empire is on the brink of ruin, and the boy she once loved has become a ruthless killer for hire. To keep her family's dangerous secrets, Masie is forced into a lie that will change the course of her future and leave her trapped in a gilded cage of her own making.
All That Glitters
A dame with brains, moxie, and killer curves, June West isn't your average flapper. She's managed to endear herself to the son of one of the most powerful gangsters in New York, earning herself a spot in the limelight that she's always longed for. With the infamous playboy at her side, June has become accustomed to living the high life. Lavish parties, expensive clothes, sparkling jewels - nothing is beyond her reach. But when her carefully woven web of lies finally catches up with her, she must make an impossible choice: come clean about her past and risk losing everything, or find a way to bury her demons once and for all.
Nothing Gold
Dickey has been down on his luck since the day he was born. Flat broke and sick of being looked down on, he meets young socialite Lilly Rose at a wild party. The connection is like a strike of lightning. From a wealthy New York family, this debutante is everything he's been told he can never have and the only thing he wants. Determined to win her, he knows the only way is with cold hard cash. So when a shot at the biggest score of his life comes....

Great Anthology!

Great stories filled with the glamorous and not so glamorous roaring 20's. I loved the accent that Meghan Kelly used for the ladies, sounds just like what I imagine. I definitely want to hear more about Masie and what is to become of this lovely canary. JD has me curious to find out if he will be just as ruthless as his father and if he is ever able to marry June. You can't go wrong with these stories filled with lots of intrigue and danger.

Glitter and Golden Era

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

No I do not think I would recommend this book to a friend. While it was okay reading it seemed too predictable for me. Although, the detail to the clothes and times were good reading.


What other book might you compare Glitter and Gold to and why?

Mafia Daughter and this book seemed so close to that.


Have you listened to any of Meghan Kelly’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have listened to many of Meghan Kelly's performances. She always delivers. It is amazing how she can bring the characters to life.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Dicky meets up with Lily after the robbery. I will say no more so I do not spoil anything.


Any additional comments?

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
