Second in the Velvet Shoe Collection, AN UNLIKELY BEGINNING is a romantic mystery that got me thinking, laughing, sighing and crying. They say that a good mystery should leave you anticipating with each page turned. This one certainly did not disappoint. And they say a good historical writer can take you back in time. Well, I was hereby transported to another place and time. Set in 1920's crime-ridden Detroit, a blue feather leads seventeen-year-old Ruth Squire on a search for her missing fiancée, Peter Kirby. She cleverly disguises herself as a seductive jazz singer in order to gain entrance into the seedier side of town. Mobsters and Riff-Raffs fill the pages as Ruth pursues her rescue mission. She follows one telling clue after another. Back-history is trickled in, which makes the story even more interesting. Overall, AN UNLIKELY BEGINNING is a fabulously entertaining read worthy of five gold stars. Having already read the first in the series (An Unlikely Arrangement), I'm now ready to dive into Book three.
