My Thoughts: A new author and a new series for me.
Such a fun and quirky read! This author has quite a sense of humor.
Poor Hamish DeLuca and his insecurities and to be a lawyer too! Can one be insecure and a lawyer? Well, Hamish is both!
When Hamish meets his cousin's "right hand man" he is fascinated with Reggie. It turns out that Reggie is Regina Van Buren . . . a lovely lady.
As Reggie and Hamish work together they find a much darker side to the glitz and glitter at the Flamingo Club. Not all that glitters is gold or even bronze it's a much lighter shade of darkness.
Remember that the year is 1937 in Boston so when a dead body is found at the Flamingo Hamish and Reggie begin to see a whole different side of life. A life where the have nots really don't have anything like the haves. The glitter is tarnished.
Such an interesting case...a hint of romance, glittering night life and well, insecurities.
