I enjoyed reading this story set in Eissfeldt's 1940's San Francisco. She was able to paint a great picture of what it may have been like at that time, along with incorporating the jazz scene into the atmosphere of the story. When I think jazz, I normally think the 1920s, Fitzgerald, all that. It was a nice change to move up a few decades. The country changed a lot in that time and you can feel it here. The story was a quick one, and while the two main characters' relationship developed at a similar pace, I liked the way in which it happened. At first I couldn't see how even a spark would fly, but it didn't take long for me to get caught up in their story. Eissfeldt has me throwing on some old jazz and wanting to read more about her version of this time in history. And I don't mind that at all.
