Did reading The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald leave you yearning for a little more time in the world of the Jazz Age--decadent parties, liberated ladies and handsome millionaires? Look no further than the Flappers series by Jillian Larkin. I leaped into the third novel in the series--Diva and enjoyed every page in the same way I would enjoy a lavish dessert. No deep messages here, but plenty of action and bold characters.You'll get to know the three principal heroines, Clara Knowles, a columnist for the social rag the Manhattanite, Lorraine Dyer, a socially disgraced, but nonetheless spunky student at Barnard College, and Gloria Carmody, a talented and romantic singer. All three young women have been friends but have lost touch due to romances gone array and unfortunate lapses in judgment. The author gives us detailed descriptions of the designer dresses the women wear. In fact, I googled flapper fashions while reading to get a sense of the style. The Flapper series is a colorful and detailed snapshot of the era. If the roaring 20's continues to draw you in and you want something meatier, dive into another classic F. Scott Fitzgerald, This Side of Paradise. This book is described as the first to capture the Jazz Age and it captures it well. And to further develop your interest, two new novels set in the 1920s have also recently burst into the scene: Silhouette of a Sparrow by Molly Beth Griffin which approaches the era with a lesbian theme and The Diviners, by Libba Bray which injects the 1920s setting with a touch of the occult. Historical fiction has never been more entertaining.
