Very good. Follows four women in 1920's Manhattan. The women are all real historical figures which gives the story a good grounding and dosen't disappoint. Full of twists and turns.

Very good. Full of historical details and facts. Even though the time jumps were a bit disjointed at first I soon got used to it. Another great book by Gill Paul.

What was it about her that caught at his soul, when he no longer had one? What was it that fascinated him, weakened him, made him start believing in things that didn't exist? She was just a girl. A woman of courage, determination, and astonishing sangfroid, who could skewer a man without fainting, who could stand up to Killoran himself- who had terrified far braver creatures.
She was just a girl.
And he wanted her.

I'm not going to waste anymore time on this when I can be reading something else that I can get into, so I'm bailing on this because I'm just not into it. 🤷‍♂️

It's dated and slow-paced...so seeya! 👎

This was a cover buy because it's colourful, pulpy and I thought she looked like Jane Fonda 🙃

LeahBergen But ... she‘s a nine-foot heroine! 😆😆 2y
TheNeverendingTBR @LeahBergen Certainly sounded like a cool story when I read the back cover but it was a tedious read. \😏/ 2y

HeyT This totally looks like a cover Paperback Paradise would use in their work 2y
Palimpsest The retro cover is cool at least, but sometimes you just have to bail. 😊 2y
bookishbitch Life is too short to read bad books. 2y
Bookwomble Another vote for the fantastic cover! 2y
TheNeverendingTBR @Leftcoastzen Yea I saw that, I'll need to check one of them out sometime! 😌👌 2y
TheNeverendingTBR @HeyT I want all these retro covers! 😍 2y
TheNeverendingTBR @Palimpsest Agreed, it's rare for me to do that; but this one didn't capture my attention. 2y

Very good. Another great book by Gill Paul as you are made to think you are witness to history as you feel that you are there with these historic people going through all their lives and the historic moments that they went through especially with Jackie during her first husbands death in Dallas. ⬇️

Birdsong28 Even though the author makes you aware that many of situations she has either invented or manipulated to help her story it doesn't take away how wonderful she crafts her story. 2y

Thanks to #netgalley and #avon books uk for the ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review. It kicks off with the murder of the huband and his current and ex wife are both discovered with his body. We always know the wife did it, but in this case which one did it, ex or current?! Suspensefully written with some plot twists I did not anticipate, a great read.
