For the bright young things of 1929, the beautiful days seem endless, filled with romance and heartbreak, adventure and intrigue, friendship and rivalry. After a month in New York, Cordelia Grey and Letty Larkspur are small-town girls no longer. They spend their afternoons with Astrid Donal at the Greys’ lush Long Island estate and their nights in Manhattan’s bustling metropolis. But Letty’s not content to be a mere socialite. She is ready at last to chase her Broadway dreams—no matter the cost. Cordelia is still reeling from the death of her father at the hands of Thom Hale, the man she thought she loved. Now she is set to honor Darius Grey’s legacy . . . and take her revenge. Promised to Cordelia’s half brother, Astrid is caught up in a world of dazzling jewels and glittering nights—and the sparkle is blinding. Charlie Grey is a gangster playing a dangerous game; and for Astrid, Cordelia, and Letty, the stakes could be deadly. From the New York Times bestselling author of The Luxe comes the second book in an epic series set in the dizzying last summer of the Jazz Age.

I miss the scandal, the sneaking around, and the nightlife!I was looking forward to more of this......and instead I sat around waiting for things to happen.Now, don't get m...
Just as good as the first one. I love watching these three girls come in to there own.
So by now it's pretty clear that Cordelia's going to die, Letty will be famous, and Astrid is well, married. Also, Charlie reminds me of Henry from the Luxe series... which I have to reread...
Well, that was one big BLAH. Definitely calling it quits with this series.
