Waiting on Wednesday #10

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.
Today I’m spotlighting Sirens by Janet Fox, which is due out on shelves everywhere on November 8th from Speak Publishing.

When Jo Winter’s parents send her off to live with her rich cousin on the glittering island of Manhattan, it’s to find a husband and forget about her brother Teddy’s death. But all that glitters is not gold. Caught up in the swirl of her cousin’s bobbed-hair set—and the men that court them—Jo soon realizes that the talk of marriage never stops, and behind the seemingly boundless gains are illicit business endeavors, gangsters, and their molls. Jo would much rather spend time the handsome but quiet Charles, a waiter at the Algonquin Hotel, than drape herself over a bootlegger. But when she befriends a moll to one of the most powerful men in town, Jo begins to uncover secrets—secrets that threaten an empire and could secure Jo’s freedom from her family. Can her newfound power buy her love? Or will it to ruin Jo, and everyone around her?

My thoughts:
Flappers. Gangsters. Romance. Secrets. I’m so hopping on this 20’s bandwagon.
