Review Diva (Flappers, #3)

L as Clara thought And if she has to be unhappy she's going to drag everyone else down to the depths of despair right along with herBeing a Barnard girl is the stuff of Lorraine Dyer's dreams Finding out that Marcus is marrying a gold digger who may or may not be named Anastasia A nightmare The old Lorraine would have sat by and let the chips fall where they may but she's grown up a lot these past f. This book wants to be a grownup It wants to have lyrical language and characters stumbling through adult problems and relationships Unfortunately it doesn t come close to living up to this The characters are no well developed than they were in the last book and perhaps even so they tend to act out to drown their problems While that s certainly one approach to take it s certainly not one that makes the character grow Nor does it manage to engage me as a readerthere s only so many times you can tell me the characters are drinking too much before I just don t care any The attempts to shock the reader by the behavior doesn t uite make it either since the actions are normal for the time period they are in I think the attempt to make this a YA novel just doesn t workthe improper balance of adult settings and scenes with teen reactions causes both audiences to be short changed from what could be a good story The dual personality of it is frustrating and exhausting and I wish the author had been given editorial guidance on writing appropriate to a specific genre for marketing purposes because as written it s very hard to place in the hands of the correct readerARC Galley Proof

If you love The Great Gatsby you'll want to read the Flappers seriesJoy and tragedy collide in DIVA the riveting conclusion to the Flappers series set in the dazzling Roaring Twenties Parties bad boys speakeasies life in Manhattan has become a woozy blur for Clara Knowles If Marcus Eastman truly loved her how could he have fallen for another girl so uickly Their romance mustn't have been as magica. This is the third book in the Flappers series by Jillian Larkin and let me start off by saying that this is a series well worth submerging yourself in As stated above the books are set in the middle of the 1920 s and follow the lives of three extraordinary Flappers who always seem to find trouble and chaos wherever they go If you follow my blog at all you know that I love stories that follow than one lead character Gloria Lorraine and Clara s stories eventually intertwine and only makes for a interesting storyJillian s writing is the ultimate and her love and interest in the 1920 s really comes through within the pages The audacity of these three women is euivalent to the styles and attitudes carried by women in the Roaring 20 s Each woman is outspoken and genuine is her own way Each chapter is titled with the name of the woman being described and this makes the book so much easier to keep up with Their stories eventually fuse together and a mystery unfolds that sends the girls on a wild goose chaseMy favorite character was Gloria Carmody who had just recently gotten out of jail for killing a man who was trying to in turn kill her fianc This girl has guts I loved her and all the gumption that she brought to the pages Her fianc was actually an African American man who made his money playing in jazz clubs and trying not to get mauled by angry white mobs She toured with him as a phenomenal jazz singer She took a lot of negativity from other people about the man that she chose to associate with especially during a time such as the 20 s but she never slowed down and neither did her love for Jerome This was actually the first book that I have read in awhile that focused on this era and the realism of it made me want to read and From the jazz music and flutes of champagne to the strands of pearls and the seuined flapper dresses I was absorbing every word Larkin provides a well detailed analysis of what life was really like in this decadent time period The plot along with all the wonderful descriptions only added to the romantic aspects of the book and all the relationships that began to unfold and old loves that were made new This is definitely an intriguing read that I would suggest for anyone and I hope that Jillian decides to provide us her readers with a inside view on her favorite eraA copy of this book was provided to me by Netgalley in return for an honest review

Ew months She can't bear to see Marcus lose a chance for true love But will anyone listen to herNow that the charges against her have been dropped Gloria Carmody is spending the last dizzying days of summer on Long Island yachting on the sound and palling around with socialites at Forrest Hamilton's swanky villa Beneath her smile though Gloria's keeping a secret One that could have deadly conseuence. This series starts off with a bang and end with a wimper Gloria has been front and centered with her story full of angst pain love danger and betrayal Clara had her moments and was coming in to her own in the second book Lorraine is a train wreck who is trying to repair her image Marcus has his heart broken and then gets engaged too uickly In this book Gloria is in jail and uickly freed to spy on a con man Clara is just hanging out being a socialite Lorraine is in school leading a boring life This book was just flat and went nowhere to a conclusion that happened very awkwardly In one page Marcus wedding is turned upside down Lorraine is forgiven Jerome reappears and Clara is just there

    So this was bad I had honestly forgotten that I’d read it It was so forgettable that literally days after I finished reading it I forgot what happenedHonestly you could take each of the character’s first and last chapters and delete everything in the middle and still have a coherent book While it was entertaining to read it was just pointlessSomehow though it seemed rushed too The book seemed so short and even though barely an

    355 starsOkay so this one dragged in a few places mostly I think because the main arcs were wrapped up in book two but I did like the ending and the epilogue for the closure it finally gave everyone involved in this series
