really liked it

I was very surprised I ended up liking this as much as I did. It’s part Mean Girls, part mystery, part romance and everything delicious. The story takes place in late 19th century New York and follows the lives of two top socialites. Of course there is your typical back-stabbing and plotting, but it’s actually a very intricately woven story. Godbersen does an excellent job of transporting her readers back into 19th century. Fortunately, this is a trilogy so I get to go back for more. I can’t wait. I recommend this one to anyone who is looking for a bit of addictive mind candy.

Vicki Jackie this is an addictive series! Hope you enjoy it.

Jackie Thanks! You're right it is addictive. I get annoyed anytime I have to put it down. lol.

Allison (The Allure of Books) woohoo, starting it today! :)

Jackie Oh yay you got it! I hope you love it.

Allison (The Allure of Books) yeah...it would be a mixed blessing, since that would involve tracking down the next one :P lol. I'll make the library ILL them...thats what they get for having a crappy YA section.
