review: ingenue by jillian larkin

The story of three young flappers caught up in a mob murder continues in Ingenue at almost the same point that Vixen left off. Everyone has left Chicago for New York City with Lorraine running a nightclub at Carlito's behest, Clara trying to make a different sort of name for herself as a journalist, and Gloria struggling to make it as a singer. The question at the center is, How far will each go to achieve their dreams? Gloria is excited when she finally lands a job, but it's a setup--Lorraine is the one who hired her so that Carlito can have his revenge on Gloria and Jerome. Ingenue is another fun romp in the flapper world that's filled with romance and intrigue. The downside is that the girls are isolated from each other for almost the entire book; the best part of the first book was the interaction between them.
4/5

  1. Looks like fun! Perhaps the girls will connect more in another story!
