She and two of her friends decide to run away from home to New York. One friend wants to design clothes, one becomes a waitress at a speakeasy hoping to snag a wealthy yank, and they meet a third girl enroute, rescue her from an abusive situation, and take her aboard ship as their maid. Meggie gets a job at the speakeasy singing, and catches the eye of Harry Dempsey, the manager. When her third roommate gets a job as a maid to a wealthy man who turns out to be a sex trafficker, Meggie tries to raise money to buy the girl’s contract, and gets involved with the bootleggers who killed Harry’s father. He can’t exactly blow up their ship with Meggy as a witness, and she’s not a “loose end” he’s willing to “tie up.”
Again, Ms. Wheeler writes a page-burning story, with great characters, but she really needs a better editor. I found her bad grammar—misused words, mixed tenses, etc., very distracting. If you’re not a grammar stickler, you’ll probably enjoy it.
Lady Margaret decided she wasn’t going to live the life her mother had planned for her. She and three friends ran away from England to America to make a new life. Lady Margaret had always dreamed of singing and acting and her adventures began once she found a job singing in the 501 Club. She dreams of Harry, the man sitting at a corner table watching her every night and Harry has a few dreams of his own where Lady Margaret is concerned. Harry is looking for the killers of his father and brother, which result in Harry and Margaret ending up together on quite the adventure with some very bad guys.
This book’s setting of the 1920’s was different from what I usually read but I really enjoyed this book and the author had a way of telling the story which made me imagine all the sights and sounds of that era. A great read, check it out!
