Today on my blog I have The Lost Girl Of Astor Street tour. On my stop there is a spotlight, review, guest post, and giveaway.
Lydia has vanished.
Lydia, who’s never broken any rules, except falling in love with the wrong boy. Lydia, who’s been Piper’s best friend since they were children. Lydia, who never even said good-bye.
Convinced the police are looking in all the wrong places, eighteen-year-old Piper Sail begins her own investigation in an attempt to solve the mystery of Lydia’s disappearance. With the reluctant help of a handsome young detective, Piper goes searching for answers in the dark underbelly of 1924 Chicago, determined to find Lydia at any cost.
When Piper discovers those answers might stem from the corruption strangling the city—and quite possibly lead back to the doors of her affluent neighborhood—she must decide how deep she’s willing to dig, how much she should reveal, and if she’s willing to risk her life of privilege for the sake of the truth.
From the glitzy homes of the elite to the mob-run streets of 1920s Chicago, Stephanie Morrill’s jazz-age mystery shows just how far a girl will go to save her friend.
I love the 1920's so when I saw this book was set in a period of time I love and in Chicago I knew I needed to read this book. I was hooked pretty quickly on the characters. I especially loved Piper I had an instant connection to her. She has been my favorite heroine so far this year. I have to mention Mariano the detective who helps Piper on her quest to find her missing best friend. He is swoon worthy and is definitely on my new book boyfriend list. I loved the chemestry between him and Piper. But as much as I love the characters and the story line what makes this book one of my favorite reads so far is that it's set in the roaring 20's of Chicago which almost becomes a character in the book if that makes since. I am definitely hoping for more books with Piper and Mariano in the future. 5/5 Bloody Fangs
