*I received a copy of The Canary Club in exchange for an honest review.*

I’ve had the pleasure of reading each of The Canary Club novellas while waiting for the release of this novel. I loved each of them and really felt like I got to know the characters, but each novella was leading up to something bigger…this novel!

Masie is the golden girl daughter of a mobster. Benny is just trying to get by and do whatever it takes to help his family. Each of them are pawns in the fight for power that has gripped the city, and tossed Masie’s family into chaos.

With rival gangsters, Prohibition agents, and even a murderer in the mix, Masie and Benny may be pulled apart just as they’ve found each other.

I can’t tell you how much I love this novel. Sherry Ficklin has done an amazing job of fully immersing readers in the time period. The music, the clothes, & the dialogue: everything seems so authentic to the period. The excitement of the jazz age just jumps from the pages. The Canary Club is equal part sweet romance and gritty gangster-era drama.

The characters are unique and interesting and I found myself rooting for (almost) every one of them. I finished the book wanting more and I hope there are sequels in the works, because I need to know what happens to them all.
