Beautiful Days (Bright Young Things #2)

Beautiful Days (Bright Young Things, #2)
"For the bright young things of 1929, the beautiful days seem endless, filled with romance and heartbreak, adventure and intrigue, friendship and rivalry.

After a month in New York, Cordelia Grey and Letty Larkspur are small-town girls no longer. They spend their afternoons with Astrid Donal at the Greys’ lush Long Island estate and their nights in Manhattan’s bustling metropolis. But Letty’s not content to be a mere socialite. She is ready at last to chase her Broadway dreams—no matter the cost.

Cordelia is still reeling from the death of her father at the hands of Tom Hale, the man she thought she loved. Now she is set to honor Darius Grey’s legacy . . . and take her revenge.

Promised to Cordelia’s half brother, Astrid is caught up in a world of dazzling jewels and glittering nights—and the sparkle is blinding. Charlie Grey is a gangster playing a dangerous game; and for Astrid, Cordelia, and Letty, the stakes could be deadly."

I enjoyed Beautiful Days way more than Bright Young Things and I think that is because I got tad more of a taste of the roaring 20's. I noticed the story is structured in a more natural and realistic way... Almost "real time"... so, sometimes we don't get resolutions to events that took place, until the next book. I don't know how better to explain it. Beautiful Days delivers in glitz, glamour and drama!

I adore Cordelia, Astrid and Letty! Each girl brings something to the table and their strengths and weaknesses, only make them as a group stronger and a plus, I don't find any of the girls annoying. I find Charlie to be the perfect representation of men back in the day and even though he can be stubborn. I really do like him. While Flyboy, drives me crazy, I still have a soft spot for him.

Fast paced, fun and a perfectly reflects 1920's New York. 

Too Short, just wanted a little more.

Anna Godbersen does such a great job at writing Historical Fiction and getting me to get involved in the characters lives. I am still on guard after The Luxe Series, but I do believe the Bright Young Things Series will make up for it! I cannot wait for the plots to pick up just a little more and for the love and drama to unfold.
