Flapper at the party: Josephine

Fellow blogger, Giada of Dr. Stravagante’s Traveling Book Circus, exits her breezer and rushes over to greet the spiffy dame by the fountain, Josephine.

MEET Josephine here...

by Janet Fox

Two girls. One gangster. A deadly secret.

When Josephine's father ships her off to live with her rich cousins on the glittering island of Manhattan, he says it's to find a husband. But Jo knows better--there's trouble brewing, and in 1925, all that glitters is not gold.

Caught up in a swirl of her cousin's bobbed-hair set--and the men that court them--Jo soon realizes that this world of jazz and gangsters and their molls hides a nest of lies. But when she befriends the girlfriend of one of the most powerful and dangerous gangesters in town, Jo begins to uncover secrets--secrets that threaten an empire and could destroy everyone she loves.

Jo is faced with a choice: hang on to her soul, or lose herself in the decade of decadence.
