    In Relative Fortunes, we meet Julia Kydd, a woman who is just shy of 25 but wise beyond her years Julia encounters an acquaintance named Glennis who discovers her progressive sister has died..supposedly under some rather mysterious circumstances Despite Julia s hesitation, she soon becomes engrossed in a very complicated plot The book was very historically accurate it was centered around the early 1920 s when women had yet to vote I felt as though the book was a bit plodding at times but ov In Relative Fortunes, we meet Julia Kydd, a woman who is just shy of 25 but wise beyond her years Julia encounters an acquaintance named Glennis who discovers her progressive sister has died..supposedly under some rather mysterious circumstances Despite Julia s hesitation, she soon becomes engrossed in a very complicated plot The book was very historically accurate it was centere...

    I gave this three stars because for about the first half of the book I thought this book would never get going and almost stopped reading it But eventually I got caught up in the story I ll probably read future books of the series now that the probable recurring characters have been established.

    I could not put this book down Especially at the end The characters were wonderful and even though I totally thought I knew what had happened, there were twists that I totally did not see coming I cannot wait to see what Julia gets into next

    Very much a story of two halves this one One half was engrossing and atmospheric and the other was disjointed and felt very thrown together and almost bolted on to the tale First off, the good bit Julia s life has been rather charmed, admittedly she has lost both her father and her mother but she has enough wealth to live her own life and is even dabbling in her own printing imprint Capriole is very much a dabble at this point in time, no matter what Julia seems to think As her 25th Birthd Very much a story of two halves this one One half was engrossing and atmospheric and the other was disjointed and felt very thrown together and almost bolted on to the tale First off, the good bit Julia s life has been rather charmed, admittedly she has lost both her father and her mother but she has enough wealth to live her own life and is even dabbling in her own printing imprint Capriole is very much a dabble at this point in time, no matter what Julia seems to think As her 25th Birthday approaches she has to return to the States as her half brother is disputing that she is entitled to the money left her under her father s will and she desperately needs to salvage her route to independence Julia is fiercely independant but doesn t really see herself as that, she just sees herself as a modern woman living life on her terms This is related so matter of factly that it does feel natural and sets the character well on the page.The backdrop for the story is Prohibition New York, but it is...
