    Before reading this book I had never heard of the Ziegfeld Follies. The way Sarah Barthel writes about the glamorous and not so glamourous parts of The Ziegfeld Follies lives is intriguing and makes me want to do some serious research! This books captures a lot of things I look for in ...

    I received this ARC from Netgalley. This book was about Suzanne and Jada and their achieving Suzanne?s dream of becoming a Ziegfeld girl. Jada was Suzanne?s assistant. Suzanne achieved her dream of being a Ziegfeld girl and achieves her dream of acting with Bert Williams, an Africa...

    Zigfield Girls gives the reader a ticket to the development and rehearsal of a new Flo Zigfeld show. The author's depiction of cast jealousies and tension felt spot on, but I longed for a look at the colorful costumes and sets the shows were famous for. The pizzaz that made Zigfeld's s...

    Perfect for fans of historical fiction. This tale of two women who start out as friends (as much as an employer and employee can be friends) but turn into rivals is set among the jazz clubs and dance halls of 1914 New York. There are family secrets, there is a threat of violence, but a...

    There was a potentially interesting opportunity here to explore racism in a unique venue: early 1900s showgirls. Unfortunately, the writing was so stunningly bad that there was no hope from page one. How does this get past an editor? How does this get published at all? The worst I'...

    Sarah Barthel transports you to the behind-the-scenes glamorous and not-so-glamorous world of the 1914 Ziegfeld Follies... and throws in some racial tension, family secrets, mystery, danger, and a touch of romance. After reading this book, I definitely want to learn more about the Foll...

    I like the idea of the story, but the rising action was just so weak. The dialog was awkward too - very unnatural and hard to imagine any of the characters speaking that way. Very quick read, though. ...

    Thanks Kensington Books and netgalley for this ARC. Fun, flirty, and just the right combo of jazz age and modern. With a murder to solve, this novel has a serious side that makes it more than a dance rivalry. ...

    Before reading this book I had never heard of the Ziegfeld Follies. The way Sarah Barthel writes about the glamorous and not so glamourous parts of The Ziegfeld Follies lives is intriguing and makes me want to do some serious research! This books captures a lot of things I look for in ...

    I received this ARC from Netgalley. This book was about Suzanne and Jada and their achieving Suzanne?s dream of becoming a Ziegfeld girl. Jada was Suzanne?s assistant. Suzanne achieved her dream of being a Ziegfeld girl and achieves her dream of acting with Bert Williams, an Africa...

    Zigfield Girls gives the reader a ticket to the development and rehearsal of a new Flo Zigfeld show. The author's depiction of cast jealousies and tension felt spot on, but I longed for a look at the colorful costumes and sets the shows were famous for. The pizzaz that made Zigfeld's s...

    Perfect for fans of historical fiction. This tale of two women who start out as friends (as much as an employer and employee can be friends) but turn into rivals is set among the jazz clubs and dance halls of 1914 New York. There are family secrets, there is a threat of violence, but a...

    There was a potentially interesting opportunity here to explore racism in a unique venue: early 1900s showgirls. Unfortunately, the writing was so stunningly bad that there was no hope from page one. How does this get past an editor? How does this get published at all? The worst I'...

    Sarah Barthel transports you to the behind-the-scenes glamorous and not-so-glamorous world of the 1914 Ziegfeld Follies... and throws in some racial tension, family secrets, mystery, danger, and a touch of romance. After reading this book, I definitely want to learn more about the Foll...

    I like the idea of the story, but the rising action was just so weak. The dialog was awkward too - very unnatural and hard to imagine any of the characters speaking that way. Very quick read, though. ...

    Thanks Kensington Books and netgalley for this ARC. Fun, flirty, and just the right combo of jazz age and modern. With a murder to solve, this novel has a serious side that makes it more than a dance rivalry. ...

    (1.5 stars) ...

    Thanks Kensington Books and netgalley for this ARC. This is a novel of friendship, loyalty, and making it as a dancer in the still segregated states. ...

    Thanks Kensington Books and netgalley for this ARC. Fun, flirty, and just the right combo of jazz age and modern. With a murder to solve, this novel has a serious side that makes it more than a dance rivalry. ...

    Before reading this book I had never heard of the Ziegfeld Follies. The way Sarah Barthel writes about the glamorous and not so glamourous parts of The Ziegfeld Follies lives is intriguing and makes me want to do some serious research! This books captures a lot of things I look for in ...

    I received this ARC from Netgalley. This book was about Suzanne and Jada and their achieving Suzanne?s dream of becoming a Ziegfeld girl. Jada was Suzanne?s assistant. Suzanne achieved her dream of being a Ziegfeld girl and achieves her dream of acting with Bert Williams, an Africa...

    Zigfield Girls gives the reader a ticket to the development and rehearsal of a new Flo Zigfeld show. The author's depiction of cast jealousies and tension felt spot on, but I longed for a look at the colorful costumes and sets the shows were famous for. The pizzaz that made Zigfeld's s...

    Perfect for fans of historical fiction. This tale of two women who start out as friends (as much as an employer and employee can be friends) but turn into rivals is set among the jazz clubs and dance halls of 1914 New York. There are family secrets, there is a threat of violence, but a...

    Before reading this book I had never heard of the Ziegfeld Follies. The way Sarah Barthel writes about the glamorous and not so glamourous parts of The Ziegfeld Follies lives is intriguing and makes me want to do some serious research! This books captures a lot of things I look for in ...

    I received this ARC from Netgalley. This book was about Suzanne and Jada and their achieving Suzanne?s dream of becoming a Ziegfeld girl. Jada was Suzanne?s assistant. Suzanne achieved her dream of being a Ziegfeld girl and achieves her dream of acting with Bert Williams, an Africa...

    Zigfield Girls gives the reader a ticket to the development and rehearsal of a new Flo Zigfeld show. The author's depiction of cast jealousies and tension felt spot on, but I longed for a look at the colorful costumes and sets the shows were famous for. The pizzaz that made Zigfeld's s...

    Perfect for fans of historical fiction. This tale of two women who start out as friends (as much as an employer and employee can be friends) but turn into rivals is set among the jazz clubs and dance halls of 1914 New York. There are family secrets, there is a threat of violence, but a...

    There was a potentially interesting opportunity here to explore racism in a unique venue: early 1900s showgirls. Unfortunately, the writing was so stunningly bad that there was no hope from page one. How does this get past an editor? How does this get published at all? The worst I'...

    Sarah Barthel transports you to the behind-the-scenes glamorous and not-so-glamorous world of the 1914 Ziegfeld Follies... and throws in some racial tension, family secrets, mystery, danger, and a touch of romance. After reading this book, I definitely want to learn more about the Foll...

    I like the idea of the story, but the rising action was just so weak. The dialog was awkward too - very unnatural and hard to imagine any of the characters speaking that way. Very quick read, though. ...

    Thanks Kensington Books and netgalley for this ARC. Fun, flirty, and just the right combo of jazz age and modern. With a murder to solve, this novel has a serious side that makes it more than a dance rivalry. ...

    (1.5 stars) ...
