I received this book as an ARC from Reading Addiction PR on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
This was certainly an interesting introduction to Sherry D. Ficklin’s new series.
Set in New York in the 1920s it follows Masie Schultz, the daughter of bootlegger Dutch Schultz, and her struggle to find a place in a world built on money earned on smuggled alcohol. The novella is quite short and fast-paced – and as it is the introduction to this series you don’t get much in way of character development, relationships or world building, but you do get some, just enough to wake your interest and make you think “hm, this series might be interesting”.
Due to that I’m giving it a 3 star rating. Once we have the first proper novel for this series I’ll probably give it a go as well.
