It’s 1923 and London is a whirl of jazz, dancing and parties. Violet, Daisy, Poppy and Rose Derrington are desperate to be part of it, but stuck in an enormous crumbling house in the country, with no money and no fashionable dresses, the excitement seems a lifetime away.
Luckily the girls each have a plan for escaping their humdrum country life: Rose wants to be a novelist, Poppy a jazz musician and Daisy a famous film director. Violet, however, has only one ambition: to become the perfect Debutante, so that she can go to London and catch the eye of Prince George, the most eligible bachelor in the country.
But a house as big and old as Beech Grove Manor hides many secrets, and Daisy is about to uncover one so huge it could ruin all their plans—ruin everything—forever.
Cora Harrison has once again sucked me into the past with the worlds she creates in her novels. It was a stunning read, the writing was brilliant and the detail and fact were flawless!
An enjoyable delightful story, the characters were engaging and I soon was enthralled with them!
My only niggle was that it seemed a little young for me but that's not really a problem, just I know who to recommend it too!

Stand by as Riley prepares to kick some serious demon butt for the last time in this thrilling, dramatic and sexy conclusion to The Demon Trappers series.
Riley’s always known that Beck had a chequered history, but she’s not prepared for what it actually means to be in love with a guy with this many dark secrets. Now that he’s finally admitted to himself that he’s in love with her too, there’s no more hiding the truth about his past. And as it turns out, fending off a demon apocalypse is nothing compared to what’s to come...
As per usual, Jana Oliver has kicked ass with her AMAZING finale to the Demon Trappers Series.
I love how this book focused more on the relationship between her and you know who, and how they fought to the end! I also enjoyed seeing how things had changed because of how Riley dealt with things in the last book
Writing was, as always, brilliant and easily accessible, the story was unputdownable and the characters, well I've been in love with most of them for a long time, and have watched them grow and learn, so I was sad to see it ending but still loved it!
Great read, read it in a day, and totally recommend the entire series to everyone!
Lots of Love
