Murder at the Flamingo: A Novel (A Van Buren and DeLuca Mystery) by Rachel McMillan

Book Description:  Hamish DeLuca has spent most of his life trying to hide the anxiety that appears at the most inopportune times -- including during his first real court case as a new lawyer. Determined to rise above his father’s expectations, Hamish runs away to Boston where his cousin, Luca Valari, is opening a fashionable nightclub in Scollay Square.  When he meets his cousin's “right hand man,” Reggie, Hamish wonders if his dreams for a more normal life might be at hand.

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.
