    Great Follow Up to the First Book!

    The second book in the Bright Young Things series is a breath of fresh air! Typically I read YA / Urban Fantasy work (Cassandra Clare, Chloe Neill, etc.) but I read the first book in this series and had to immediately pick up the second book. What I love most about this book is that it is such an escape from the darker books I usually read, as well as reality. There is a completely different vibe when you aren't worried about vampires eating your favorite character(s). I adore these characters, these young women who are all strong in their own ways. I can relate to Letty well and long to be more carefree like Astrid and able to control my emotions like Cordelia. Read the book... you will want to sneak into a speakeasy, wear beaded gowns and dance the Charleston, no matter your age (if you don't know what the Charleston is, YouTube it!)!

    This book really took off! Set in one of my favorite times, Beau

    This book really took off! Set in one of my favorite times, Beautiful Days is great read.

    What I enjoyed most about this book is the plot. Cordelia, Letty, Astrid lives have taken some unexpected turns. I like that in this book the reader still gets each point of view from the girls. Being in their shoes is fantastic. I enjoyed the parties, the clothes, and also the music.

    All of the girls face some hard times in the book. There is also something that starts to form, a woman's movement. Women are becoming more independent. I like that the story is also integrated with real history. It has so many aspects of what it is like to live in that era it's like your really there.

    The love interest for each women played out as expected. Cordelia is learning more about her father and his company that he left heir to her. She is also learning more secrets about her brother and her love of her life. Letty is sort of hanging in the midst. The reader doesn't see much of her. She is great help to Cord and Astrid. And Astrid. This girl got in to so much trouble! Her love is strong but trust has not been built. I am glad though near the end, she learns to trust him.

    Beautiful Days takes one a whole new meaning of beautiful. Striking and highly entertaining, Beautiful Days is moving. The vibrant city and speak easy clubs, it's no wonder it beautiful.

    Continues the tradition of the first book.

    Another well written historical piece of fiction. I can't wait for the 3rd installment, but who knows when that will come as this one was just released.
