You’re the Cream in My Coffee by Jennifer Lamont Leo
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
What a fun story! It’s not a traditional boy-meets-girl romance. I haven’t read many stories set in the flapper era, but I really enjoyed this. The writing is fresh and the characters are likable. I’m looking forward to Jennifer Leo’s next book!
Marjorie Corrigan is about to marry a doctor and become an important figure in their small town until she starts fainting at the oddest times. The trip to Chicago to discover the root of her problem opens a whole new chapter in her life. One that may not include a certain small-town doctor. Her new roommate poses nude and sings in a speakeasy. How’s a wholesome girl from small-town America to survive in the fast-paced and occasionally dangerous world of prohibition Chicago?
