Read in July, 2012

** spoiler alert ** I unapologetically loved this book. I'm reading it 'cause I'm writing a book set in the gilded age, featuring society girls (and werewolves), but I really dug the tension Godbersen infused in this book. She certainly made things worse for her characters at every turn. Betrayals, affairs, all manner of scandal happens here. She started the book with the protagonist's funeral, then went back in time a bit: I was chomping at the bit to know how the characters got from point A to point B. I guessed the end right off the bat, (Spoiler: When there's a funeral and there's no body, you KNOW the character isn't really dead.) But I tore through it, and really had a good time reading.
