Genre: Historical Romance
Monica Bisbaine loves being a modern girl in the Roaring Twenties. Her job writing a gossip column allows her access to all the local speakeasys in Washington, D.C., where she can dance the night away—and find fodder for her next article. But when the owner of the Capitol Chatter newspaper passes away, Monica wonders what will happen to her job, and the lifestyle she loves.
Max Moore may hold the title of editor-in-chief for evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson’s paper, The Bridal Call, but Aimee calls all the shots. So when Max learns that his great-uncle has passed away, leaving him all his earthly possessions, Max resigns and heads to D.C. Determined to take over the Capitol Chatter, infuse it with his values, and turn it into a respectable paper, Max is soon bumping up against the equally determined Monica Bisbane.
Under Max’s direction, Monica embarks on her most challenging assignment yet: infiltrating and reporting on the Anti-Flirt Society. Though reluctant at first, as Monica meets and mingles with the young women of the club, she begins to question the innocence of her flirtatious lifestyle. And when romance begins to blossom between Max and Monica, she must choose where her loyalties lie: with the young women of the society or the alluring pull of the speakeasy and its inhabitants.
I just love Allison Pittman's books and always look forward to the next. This book is in the same era as All for A Song, but reads fairly well as a stand alone book. I will say that I loved the first book but this one was slower for me to get into but I did enjoy the story and looked forward to the next book in the series, All for A Sister.
I will say I found Monica hard to relate to. A girl determined to do as she wants and go against what she is told to do. She is very resistant at first to anything that affects her lifestyle but over time will she come around? She has a lot to learn and very stubborn just hard to relate to for some.
