First off, I loved the first two books! It was amazing! It was totally different from any other book I ever read. I was really happy when this book was on NetGalley. I want to thank the publisher for letting me review this!
The beginning starts off with Jerome. He went to a club to get a job, but of course everyone didn't want him to sing because he was black. After that happened, Jerome met Gloria's father outside the club. Nothing can go right when your fiancée's father go find you.
Gloria was in jail for three weeks. Suddenly Hank went to talk to Gloria. Hank made a deal with Gloria to go find out how Forrest got all his money. And if Gloria does find out, Hank will set Gloria free from jail.
Lorraine and Clare are jealous because Marcus is getting married to a girl he haven't even known for 2 months. Clare still is in love with Marcus. Lorraine still likes him a lot. When Lorraine and Clare bumped into each other many things went wrong.
There's a lot of twist and turns. I can never get bored with the different point of views. I exceptionally love Gloria's chapters, they were so interesting! There wasn't much of Jerome in this book which I hate. But the new characters in the book made up for it.
I love Gloria and Jerome's long distance relationship. Even though they haven't seen each other in weeks. They still have a really strong relationship which I love. Another couple I really love is Lorraine and Melvin. There relationship is just so cute! I love them :) Even though they only hung out with each other a few times, I can feel the connection between them.
All the main character got their happy ending. Gloria, Jerome, Lorraine, Clare, and Marcus are all happy at the end. The only bad thing that happen was someone getting shot.
Overall, I love all three books. This is such an amazing trilogy. I can't wait to read other books from this author. The writing was so beautiful. I exceptionally love the way the author describe the clothes they were wearing. It makes me feel like going into a time machine, so I can try on those clothes.
"She wore a full-length burnt-orange dress with Grecian-style beading on the shoulders, and diamond earrings dangled from her ears."

The Flapper Series is one trilogy that will remain locked in the imagination and on bestseller lists for a good, long time to come. Which is why the release of this book is both fantastic (because we get to read more about the amazing group of girls created by Larkin), and also heart-wrenching…because readers are told that this is the last we will see of these incredible characters.Was this review helpful?

The three girls these books orbit around are still as noteworthy as they were when first introduced in Vixen. And with the second novel, Ingenue, readers were taken even further into their lives, as an unforgettable tale of enemies, friends and circumstances created an unforgettable tale.
With this gift, we return to the Roaring 20’s with Clara Knowles, party girl and friend of Gloria Carmody; Gloria, who was a girl brought up in luxury and was just about to become engaged when she went to a jazz club, sang to a very handsome man, and ended up running away with him; and last, but certainly not least, Lorraine Dyer, who has alienated the other two girls, gone to New York and become a reporter for a scandal sheet called the ‘Manhattanite.’
As the series comes to an end we begin in the big city where each girl has been sent down a new path - from promising singing careers to careers in journalism. Gloria has narrowly escaped going to prison after shooting someone who was after her fiancé. She’s now helping out a government agent in order to get ‘something’ on a family who live high on the hog on Long Island. Lorraine is trying to break into Broadway and help out a true friend who simply won’t listen to her. And Clara’s writing becomes even more popular as she struggles in her personal life to win back the true love she’s lost.
This final dramatic episode offers a very interesting climax. As the girls have grown up and are getting together to get what they all want, the action becomes seriously intriguing. The author has created a riveting, titillating, romantic and extremely cool end to an extremely cool series!
Quill Says: Goodbye to The Flappers. Hopefully, Jillian Larkin will come up with another series that is just as fascinating very, very soon.
