    The interesting and varied characters really stick in your mind

    The interesting and varied characters really stick in your mind long after reading.
    I originally read this story in serial form and highly recommend the paperback to anyone who hasn't read it.
    Charlotte's plight really moved me, caught between a domineering husband, the society expectations of his family and the exploding social mores of the 1920s in NY and my head was spinning right along with hers.
    Rounding out the varied but always human cast of characters are Mae, Charlotte's young and impetuous sister-in-law  and guide the Jazz age speakeasies; Fionna the irrepressible striving, waitress; Boom Boom the imperial club owner; and Amelia Astor, the relic of Victorian society.
    Then there are the male leads competing for Charlotte's attention: Jake, the roguish speakeasy owner and musician, and Rafferty, the always reliable butler and protector.  Jamie Brenner's highly entertaining novel definitely did the most with a colorful and dramatic period not often portrayed in historical fiction.

    The story is interesting and you find yourself wanting to finish

    The story is interesting and you find yourself wanting to finish to see how it all ends. But the ending feels rushed, and there are certain story lines that felt choppy and unfinished. I found myself not being able to understand some of the characters actions and motives, which can be good in certain instances but in this case a little annoying. Its a quick read, keeps you engaged, but the ending was really disappointing. All that build-up and then, meh, I'm done. I got it for $1.99 so I'm not too bummed. Great story line, interesting characters, and a puttering finish.
