I loved the story-line from beginning to end. It had everything I loved about an era full of fancy dresses, speakeasies, gangsters, and bootlegging. I could actually picture this story unfold in my mind and I couldn't help but stop and daydream about the events as they unfolded. The characters were phenomenally vibrant, colorful, and so much fun to get to know. I really didn't want this story to end. I am actually craving to know more and will be impatiently waiting on the edge of my seat for the next book to come out. This book has left an everlasting impression on my mind and soul and I find myself wanting to go back and get lost in this story all over again. I highly recommend this story to all adults to read and enjoy.
Ms. Kelly as always does a great job I do believe this might be her best work. She gives you a smooth clean and clear audio that pulls you in painting a picture you have no trouble picturing the danger as it unfolds. I really enjoyed her character voices, you have no trouble knowing who is talking and what they are feeling. The confusing and excitement along with the anger comes through very clear. Her tones are even, there was no background noise or any places where the volume changed it one steady listen. Her male voices are just as good as her female ones. She really has come a long way from the first audio I have listened to of hers. I had no trouble picturing and feeling Masie anger, hurt, sorrow and excitement at finally getting her father’s attention. It really was a great listen with powerful emotions.
I liked a few of the characters and a few not so much. It was very easy to get the feel of Masie since the book is mostly about her. I could really feel her pain over her mother and really felt sorry for her. I understood that she just wanted to make her father proud and wanted his love. Her old love is a mix of let’s do it to let’s stop her father wouldn’t be too happy and he does want to keep his job. This story reminds me a lot of a mob but I do not get the feeling it is as of yet. I thought it has a good plot with a good writing style. This is a cliffhanger which I do not care for, I think it could have all been put in one book. The story held my attention and at times very exciting, there is passion and a few little hot scenes. I did enjoy it enough to want to read the next in the series. It is very short but I think worth the listen. I know when the book ended I just put my head in my hands and as OH Masie what have you done….
It was a quick read. I purchased this novella two days ago, and now I find myself talking in 1920’s speech and wanting to open up my own speakeasy but without the hitches.
I will say this much, "The beginning of this series will transport you back in time."
Masie has infected me so much that I'm there, right beside her. I close my eyes and see her on the stage. Feel the emotional tear between family loyalty and weaving her web of lies into the rope that will pull her out. Picturing the torn complexity of Vinny’s and Masie’s relationship.
Here’s one of my favorite quotes from Masie to Vinny. “This stupid business isn’t worth your live, Vinny. It’s not worth your soul.”
But unfortunately, in the end, she will always remain; 'Daddy’s girl,' and that bond will keep this songbird in her cage. I can’t wait for the next novella … five stars from me.
I read through this novelette fairly fast and could not believe when I got to the end. I was so disappointed only because I wanted more! The book is about Dutch Scholtz daughter Maisie. It gives just enough character backstory to keep you invested without going overboard. I'm told this is just a preview of the full length novel. I hoe the book comes out soon because It's a great story. Sherry describes the emotions without having Maisie hysterical. Great description of the clothes and clubs especially when trying to describe New York in the 20's. I strongly recommend this novelette!!
