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.

For the bright young things of 1929, the beautiful days seem endless, filled with romance, heartbreak, adventure, 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.

    " I was disappointed to the newest addition to the BYT series. The book was boring and I fought to finish the story. I hope the third installment is better because I'm a huge fan of Anna Godbersen. "

    " I am a big fan of Godbersen's stuff - she is one of those authors where I know I can buy the next book in the series confident that it will be a solid, enjoyable read and this one's no different. Really brings the 20s to life and you can almost hear the dialogue being said aloud in that style - her dialogue does a good job of being period-appropriate. Looking forward to the series conclusion!
