Each novella focuses on one of four roommates living in New York City in the 1920s. Charli is a lithe, green-eyed, strawberry blonde. Born in England as Lady Charlotte Leighton, Charli ran away after her parents introduced her to the man they'd selected to be her husband. Now working as a barmaid in a speakeasy, she struggles to keep her dream alive. She wants to run a bakery. Her roommates live on Charli's delicious scones.
When her fiancée shows up in New York, the rendezvous whirls out of control. This leads to a tense meeting with Detective Felix Noble, an honest cop with an eye for Charli. He's smitten, and the dance begins.
After this, the story is told from both points of view, which serves to enhance the romance. It's a short book, so I don't want to say any more except I love this line: "A cell door closed on her short lived freedom." I was happy to find that I didn't have to take that line literally.
Read the book and you'll see what I mean. If you like historical romances set in the Prohibition era, you'll love this one.
