Jazz. Short skirts. Prohibition.
It’s the Roaring Twenties as we’ve never seen it before in
Jillian Larkin’s debut novel, Vixen, the
first in the new young adult series Flapper.
Gloria plays the perfect daughter of the nouveau riche
Carmody clan—good grades, good looks and a huge diamond on her ring finger, to
boot. Engaged to the most eligible bachelor in Chicago, she has nary a scandal
to her name and can only imagine the seedy underbelly of 1923 Chicago.
The 17-year-old should be all smiles, but she’s yearning for
a life filled with passion rather than duty, and her time to truly live is
quickly running out.
When she and her trio of secret-hording friends stumble into
Chicago’s most notorious speakeasy for one last hurrah, Glo finds herself
loving every minute of it, from the free-flowing drinks to the entrancing eyes
of a handsome young jazz piano player. But will her double life lead to despair
or true love?
Only author Jillian Larkin has the answer. Pick up this
quick read at a bookseller near you. The next installment in The Flapper
series, Ingénue, arrives in September
