Summary from HarperCollins:

The year is 1929. New York is ruled by the Bright Young Things: flappers and socialites seeking thrills and chasing dreams in the anything-goes era of the Roaring Twenties.

Letty Larkspur and Cordelia Grey escaped their small Midwestern town for New York's glittering metropolis. All Letty wants is to see her name in lights, but she quickly discovers Manhattan is filled with pretty girls who will do anything to be a star. . . .

Cordelia is searching for the father she's never known, a man as infamous for his wild parties as he is for his shadowy schemes. Overnight, she enters a world more thrilling and glamorous than she ever could have imagined—and more dangerous. It's a life anyone would kill for . . . and someone will.

The only person Cordelia can trust is ­Astrid Donal, a flapper who seems to have it all: money, looks, and the love of Cordelia's brother, Charlie. But Astrid's perfect veneer hides a score of family secrets.

Across the vast lawns of Long Island, in the ­illicit speakeasies of Manhattan, and on the blindingly lit stages of Broadway, the three girls' fortunes will rise and fall—together and apart. From the New York Times bestselling author of The Luxe comes an epic new series set in the dizzying last summer of the Jazz Age.

My Review:

     This was such a lively and fun read! The hustle and bustle of New York City in the Roaring Twenties was portrayed in the most intricate and fashionable way.
     I was a bit hesitant to read this one, I admit, since I usually go for books with more fantasy and mystery to them but I decided to give this one a try and I loved it!
     The journey that Letty and Cordelia make from Ohio to New York was thrilling to experience while reading. Every page striked a new question for me. The inside world of famous bootleggers was glamorous and sinister at the same time. I always like watching movies set in the 1920's and it was even more enjoyable to read about the speakeasies and cigarette girls from their points of view.
    Anna painted such a beautiful world brimming with secrets and poise. Behind all of the fashion and partying lay a world full of questionable motives and schemes of betrayal. This was all really enticing for me because we always see the Roaring Twenties as a time of parties and boundless style, but there is an entire world hidden beneath.
