Sweet, fun little story with a strong, spunky heroine. This one is a bit old fashioned and dated but it is authentic to the time it was written (1924). There is a little mystery to be solved which reminded me of an older Nancy Drew. In this book Julie is 23.

I did enjoy this book and give it 3.5 stars.

I have been humming the George Harrison song since I started this book. While I do like the song and enjoyed Abbey Road, it's time for the song to get out of my mind!

This is not one of my favorite Emilie Loring books, but it's still enjoyable. If the smuggling plot is not particularly well done, I still appreciate Loring's attempt to point out the seriousness (in those days) of turning a blind eye--or even participating in--bootlegging. I also appreciated the political race that figures into the plot and that the hero is determined to run his campaign for state senator without digging up dirt on his opponent. He makes the point that good people stay out of ...more

Recommends it for: fans of old/ old-fashioned romances with suspense
This is a sweet book. All Emilie Loring's book are almost overwhelmingly sweet and wholesome, with prose that is just WAY TOO descriptive. However, the basic story structure is fun, in the dated, contrived "oh, your honor has compromised. let's get married in name only, and redeem it". always a set up for romance in books, and usually a good payoff for the reader. Like this one. It's a good, sweet, fun read. Read it when you want to just relax and enjoy a book that's not too demanding.

It was pretty good. some parts were very boring, but the climax was exciting and i couldn't but the book down.
Julie was supposed to be a strong and tough character but at times seemed very whiny.
