Vixen by Jillian Larkin


Four stars.

Vixen follows the point of views of three characters as they live in 1920's Chicago- Gloria, Lorraine, and Clara. Each of them has their own hidden secrets and agendas, and there's more than meets the eye. Gloria is a socialite who's the talk of the town, after all, she's engaged to the Sebastian Grey. Life should be perfect. Marrying him promises an easy life of money and glamour, but is she really willing to settle for such a mundane life? Lorraine is Gloria's best friend, a not-so-modest flapper to be who is eclipsed by Gloria no matter how hard she tries. Her time has come, and for once, all eyes will be on her, and not her doe eyed friend. And then there's Clara, her cousin. She's come to "help prepare the wedding", and has more skeletons in her closet than her family realizes. If she doesn't take precautions, people could see through her innocent ruse....

Over all, I thought this book was alright. I liked reading about the speak-easy scene. The first part of the book was a bit boring to get through, but the ending made up for it. It put me in mind of something like Gossip Girl, but with a better cultural back drop.
