Click here to listen to the first chapter of Innocence Lost.

In 1924 Philadelphia, crime rules the city. Notorious bootleggers like Mickey Duffy don’t take kindly to those who get in their way, even if they’re his wife’s best friends. Innocence Lost proves to be a glowing first novel in the Bootleggers’ Chronicles series, setting the reader up for monumental growth, disastrous downfalls, and plenty of secrets to keep you guessing.

The Prohibition era was highlighted in the storytelling as well; I had never thought of the many reasons why so many men easily fell into bootlegging after World War I and how women embraced the freedoms of the era after taking up the men's jobs while they were away.

This book (Innocence Lost) was such a fun read!... Now, let me tell you right away that at first I could not stand Maggie. At first. I wanted her to be this strong, capable woman (which she was), but she was such a…well, to keep this post family-friendly, we’ll just use the word “snob.” It is a sign of a magnificent author, by the way, to be able to evoke emotions towards their characters. And I definitely had some emotions towards Maggie.

Y’all, I could not put this book down! And I am so, so happy that it is only Book 1 in “The Bootleggers’ Chronicles,” because I need more.

(Innocence Lost was) Fast paced and intriguing, I was immediately drawn into the novel and by the time I looked up I was already halfway through the book! I finished the second half in one sitting too. That's how hard it was to put down. Maggie and Frank are a great team!

The Roaring Twenties. It was a decade defined by vitality and violence. The world as they knew it had been blown apart by World War I.

Taking its place were feisty flappers and enterprising bootleggers who lived in a world of back alleys, speakeasies, and smoky jazz clubs. It was a world of elegance and decadence.

Women were voting, getting jobs, starting businesses, and reveling in their new found freedom. Men were finding out how many doors could be opened if you carried a tommy gun.

It was a time of lawlessness and injustice. Prohibition turned America into a playground for bootleggers and gangsters. It’s hard to say what was more dangerous; the evil that thrived there, or people who did nothin’ about it.

Lose yourself in the Bootleggers’ Chronicles, and discover why everyone loves to hate American gangsters, and how the insatiable spirit of the flapper defined an era.

That dame’s glad-rags were the cat’s meow…

Oh, those fringes!

Those feathers!

All those sparkling sequins!
