    Mystery/romance 260 pages

    This mystery/ romance was set in 1928. It has about 260 pages long. There were a few editing problems, but nothing major. I enjoyed reading the details of what life was like during this era. I knew about Speak Easies, but had never heard or read about Blind Pigs before. There is quite a bit of graphic violence and cursing in this book. There is a good flow to the story. I am so grateful for the freedoms women have today, when compared to those of almost 90 years ago, as dipicted in this novel. This is a book for adult readers.

    Jewell did an amazing job capturing the audience's attention fro

    Jewell did an amazing job capturing the audience's attention from the first to the very last sentence of Shine On. There is a perfect balance of a budding romance, raw emotions, and drama. Ladies will be swooning over Silas McDowell :) It is evident that Jewell did her research prior to completing her first novel set in the 1920'
    s. This meticulous fact reveals that we have an authentic, talented, and dedicated author on our hands! Although there is mild cursing, a little violence, and a few editing issues, it is nothing that cannot be overlooked for a great read. Look out Hallmark and Lifetime, I see a movie in the future! Beautiful start to the Shine On romance series!

    This was a page-turner;  however , there are some major editing problems.  
    Many words are left out , the wrong word is used, or a word ending is left off.  One example
    of a problem is the saying "it is what it is".  That is a 21st century saying.  Emmie was "pilfering" through her drawers.
    Pilfering is small time theft, not rummaging through your own drawers..  
    Despite these distractions, I enjoyed the plot and am curious to know how Emmie and Silas can possibly stay together.
