This was a quick and fun listen. I haven’t read much set in the 1920s but this era is fascinating and the author did a great job of igniting my senses. This is the story of a young woman brought up to be very proper by her strict and controlling Aunt and Uncle. With her 18th birthday approaching she’s bursting to break out of her cocoon and become a woman of her own making. This story was very well written. The character development was so well done that even as the narrator described the blue lines in her Aunts pale hands I could see it vividly and was there. I found the whole story to be enchanting in this way. It’s a story of finding oneself, learning about the world, gangsters and bootleggers, good guys and bad guys, but mostly of love. Romona Master is a new narrator to me and she didn’t disappoint. She performed a knockout job. Her tone of voice was perfectly pitched when need be and not once was I thrown off or pulled from the story. This was a great listen for anyone looking for something just a bit different. Where your imagination can be engaged in a different era with a little bit of mystery and love. I cannot wait to hear more from this author.

This is the story of a young woman (Bethany Robinson) who is on the brink of womanhood. She has lived a very sheltered life and, since she is about to turn 18, she is looking forward to her freedom. There were times I couldn't believe how naive she was (Its been a while since I was 18 lol) but given her sheltered life, it is understandable. From her domineering Aunt, her mischief with some high profile gangsters, and a cute love story, this made a nice beginning to this series. It is a fun story that I wish was was a bit longer. I hope the next books will continue this story. 😁
I enjoyed the narration.....very well done.
Note: No detailed sex, etc.
My thanks to the author, narrator, or publisher for providing me this audio book at no cost in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. 😋
