Vixen
by Jillian Larkin

SummaryIt’s the Roaring Twenties; the time of flappers, bobbed hair, speakeasies, jazz music, and dancing the Charleston until dawn.  Gloria, her goody-two-shoes cousin Clara, and her scheming best friend Lorraine are swept away by the glitz and glamour of the times and nothing is ever going to be the same.     

ThoughtsGossip Girl meets the 1920s!  What could be more fun!  I loved this juicy, fast-paced novel by new author Jillian Larkin.  Miss Larkin skillfully recreates the excitement and intrigue of the flapper lifestyle; I was completely pulled in and ready to donn my dress & learn the Charleston!  The characters and storylines in Vixen are realistic, compelling, and full of surprises.  I can hardly wait for the sequel, Ingenue!  Fans of novels full of romance and drama, such as The Luxe:  this new series is for you.   

Notes:  Last week I had the opportunity to attend a dinner with the author of this new series.  What a treat it was to meet the lovely Jillian Larkin!  She is such a delightful, accomplished lady... already a published author at 22!  The dinner was hosted by Meg O'Brien of Random House at the hip, chic Dragonfly restaurant at Hotel ZaZa.  It was the perfect setting to celebrate this new author and her exciting series.
