The Bookpushers, 28 Feb 2010, reviewed by E. 4.5 Stars. “I was immediately drawn into the world of speakeasies, and undercover agents… I could feel Kate’s struggles and frustration with her brother, her intense attraction to Mica, and her determination not to lose her family business by mixing business with pleasure – or by meekly giving into the local gangster’s demands.”
