America in the 1920s was a country alive with the wild fun of jazz, speakeasies, and a new kind of woman—the flapper.
Vera Abramowitz is determined to leave her gritty childhood behind and live a more exciting life, one that her mother never dreamed of. Bobbing her hair and showing her knees, the lipsticked beauty dazzles, doing the Charleston in nightclubs and earning the nickname “Dollface.” 
As the ultimate flapper, Vera captures the attention of two high rollers, a handsome nightclub owner and a sexy gambler. On their arms, she gains entrée into a world filled with bootleg bourbon, wailing jazz, and money to burn. She thinks her biggest problem is choosing between them until the truth comes out. Her two lovers are really mobsters from rival gangs during Chicago’s infamous Beer Wars, a battle Al Capone refuses to lose. 

The heady life she’s living is an illusion resting on a bedrock of crime and violence unlike anything the country has ever seen before. When the good times come to an end, Vera becomes entangled in everything from bootlegging to murder. And as men from both gangs fall around her, Vera must put together the pieces of her shattered life, as Chicago hurtles toward one of the most infamous days in its history, the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre.

My thoughts: 

It’s the year of Gatsby so my obsession with the Twenties goes into overdrive! 

What’s everyone else waiting on?

  1. Ohhh I love your pick. I might actually give this a read the whole flapper 20s era has always been an interest movie wise so maybe this could work for me!

    I’m excited for the new Gatsby movie BUT I will admit I’ve never been a huge fan of Leo DiCaprio but I still want to see it!

    Great pick Danielle 🙂

  2. Interesting choice. I’m not a big fan of the 1920s (although I seem to be the only one who isn’t), but I do hope you enjoy this one. 🙂
