Author(s): 

The last in the Flappers series explores the 1920s with true insight, understanding and exuberance. Where the story falls short is its off-putting juggling of more serious subject matter — like interracial romance during the ‘20s — with other, lighter and puzzling, subplots.

Clara is living her dream, writing for a Manhattan paper. Yet, knowing her ex has moved on so quickly after their breakup is a bitter pill to swallow. Fellow flapper Gloria has been released from jail to help uncover the truth about a young Broadway producer. And the devious Lorraine is ready to make amends with the friends she’s deceived in the past — but will they accept that she’s changed?
