A delightful, well-done slice from the past
Like many starry-eyed young woman, Kit Corrigan dreamed of dancing it big in the Big Apple and having her name splashed all over Broadway. Yet life isn't the grand adventure that she imagined it would be after running away from home. When her ex-boyfriend's father finds her in NYC and offers her a hard-to-resist deal, Kit takes it without fully realizing what it entails beyond free rent, free clothes, a job recommendation, and an attempt to make amends with her ex-boyfriend. What girl can turn down such an offer? Well, if it leads deep into the trenches of the mob world, the price may actually be more dear than Kit had originally realized.Was this review helpful?

Judy Blundell has once again proven herself in bringing history to life and engaging readers with a story that steeped in intrigue and noir-inspired romance. It was very easy to fall into the time period of Strings Attached, and I found Kit's hard-knocked life very mesmerizing to watch. I thought I knew what had happened between Kit and her ex-boyfriend, but apparently I misread the between-the-lines! The ending felt a little too neatly-tied, and I wished that it had left more things unresolved - if that makes any sense. Considering all the tumultuous feelings and misgivings, I didn't expect it all to be wiped clean in a very convenient way.
