5.0 out of 5 stars Brings the 1920s to life
By AliE on 24 November 2020
5/5 Stars ✨ Honestly this book is just what I needed after finishing The Crown and to continue my obsession with Royals! Its so well written, and I love where it was set - the fun and entertainment of the 1920s and how London comes alive! I also love how Pamela captures the characters and how well their emotions are shown - I really felt like I was part of the story. I would highly recommend if you are a fan of jazz, the west end, fun or Royals!
We follow Kit Scott, an Australian trying to chase her dreams on the West End and falling into London high society. She dances the Charleston with the Prince of Wales and Lord Henry Carleton (and a group of others) and the next day it’s front page news, which leaves the royals scrambling for damage control.
This is the first novel I’ve read of Pamela’s and I will definitely go back for more! Swipe across on this picture for the full synopsis.
Thank you again #hachetteaus #netgalley
