MEET Astrid:

Bright Young Things
by Anna Godbersen
excerpt

From bestselling author Anna Godbersen comes the Bright Young Things series set in the last breathless days of Gatsby’s Roaring Twenties.

The year is 1929, and New York is ruled by the Bright Young Things: flappers and socialites chasing their dreams. Letty Larkspur and Cordelia Grey have escaped their small Midwestern town for the glittering city. Letty wants to see her name in lights, and Cordelia is searching for the father she’s never known. But overnight, they enter a world more thrilling, glamorous and dangerous than they ever could have imagined. It’s a life anyone would kill for . . . and someone will in this thrilling, romantic, page-turner.

MEET Cordelia

Beautiful Days
by Anna Godbersen
excerpt

In this second installment, flapper Cordelia Grey and aspiring Broadway star Letty Larkspur spend their days at the lush long island estate of Cordelia’s notorious father, and their nights at Manhattan speakeasies. With socialite Astrid Donal by their side, their lives are as breathless and thrilling as the last brilliant days of the Roaring Twenties, but the games they play are getting dangerous.

MEET Letty

The Lucky Ones
by Anna Godbersen
excerpt

Follow a gangster’s daughter named Cordelia Grey just as her high-flying romance with celebrity aviator Max Darby hits some nail-biting turbulence. Feel the heat of the spotlight as triple threat Letty Larkspur becomes the most gossiped about ingénue in Hollywood. And walk in the perilous stilettos of socialite Astrid Donal when she finds herself spending more time with her bootlegger husband’s henchmen than with him.

As the sizzling summer of 1929 reaches its hottest peak, these sun-kissed girls will find out if their luck can last . . . or if the dark clouds on the horizon are about to rain on their anything-goes parade.

  4. So much fun.

    The boozehound was such a boob, hopefully a stay in the big house would sort him out.
