Setting: Modern Day
The inheritance of a condominium in New York, along with a considerable amount of money, brings Betty and Jenny Carr from the small town of Carrsville, Missouri, to the glamorous big city. Betty, the younger of the two sisters, has dreams of becoming a famous dancer. Their sole contact in New York is their unsavory cousin, Colin. Soon Betty takes up with Colin's equally dubious friend, the sleekly sophisticated, middle-aged Antonio Braselmo. Jenny knows little of Betty's affair with Antonio, nor that after months of rejection and disappointment
I loved this book. My only complaint is I wish it had been longer! Fans of vintage gothic romance will love this story. Also makes for a great, exciting cozy mystery and is a great mystery, in and of itself. Highly recommend!
