This series starts off with a bang and end with a wimper Gloria has been front and centered with her story full of angst pain love danger and betrayal Clara had her moments and was coming in to her own in the second book Lorraine is a train wreck who is trying to repair her image Marcus has his heart broken and then gets engaged too uickly In this book Gloria is in jail and uickly freed to spy on a con man Clara is just hanging out being a socialite Lorraine is in school leading a boring life This book was just flat and went nowhere to a conclusion that happened very awkwardly In one page Marcus wedding is turned upside down Lorraine is forgiven Jerome reappears and Clara is just there

L as Clara thought And if she has to be unhappy she's going to drag everyone else down to the depths of despair right along with herBeing a Barnard girl is the stuff of Lorraine Dyer's dreams Finding out that Marcus is marrying a gold digger who may or may not be named Anastasia A nightmare The old Lorraine would have sat by and let the chips fall where they may but she's grown up a lot these past f. This book wants to be a grownup It wants to have lyrical language and characters stumbling through adult problems and relationships Unfortunately it doesn t come close to living up to this The characters are no well developed than they were in the last book and perhaps even so they tend to act out to drown their problems While that s certainly one approach to take it s certainly not one that makes the character grow Nor does it manage to engage me as a readerthere s only so many times you can tell me the characters are drinking too much before I just don t care any The attempts to shock the reader by the behavior doesn t uite make it either since the actions are normal for the time period they are in I think the attempt to make this a YA novel just doesn t workthe improper balance of adult settings and scenes with teen reactions causes both audiences to be short changed from what could be a good story The dual personality of it is frustrating and exhausting and I wish the author had been given editorial guidance on writing appropriate to a specific genre for marketing purposes because as written it s very hard to place in the hands of the correct readerARC Galley Proof

If you love The Great Gatsby you'll want to read the Flappers seriesJoy and tragedy collide in DIVA the riveting conclusion to the Flappers series set in the dazzling Roaring Twenties Parties bad boys speakeasies life in Manhattan has become a woozy blur for Clara Knowles If Marcus Eastman truly loved her how could he have fallen for another girl so uickly Their romance mustn't have been as magica. Similar Books The Debutantes by Cora Harrison Parlor Games by Maryka Biaggio Bright Young Things by Anna GodbersenI ve really enjoyed reading this series and I m sort of sad it s over Jillian Larkin is very similar to Anna Godbersen in the way she tells a story and I love a good historical But while I liked the final installment in the Flappers series I thought it didn t uite capture the magic of the first bookHonestly Larkin could have ended this series at book 2 Everything was wrapped up not necessarily in a happily ever after sort of way but in what I felt like was a satisfying ending Book 3 then had to launch a lot of new plotlines which were interesting but otherwise unnecessary This resulted in what I thought was some rushed plot threads that were tied together too uicklyFor one Lorraine and her new boy Now I LOVE Lorraine She was my favorite character throughout the series She has a wonderful amount of character growth and she made me laugh constantly Her chapters were always my favorite And while I liked her new guy I thought the development of their romance was too fast I wish I could have seen him throughout the series and watched their relationship build But on the flip side I thought he was PERFECT for her Love Larkin s choice hereClara s plotline felt continued from previous books and I thought her story in this book was believable But Gloria s felt tacked on like it was added because Larkin ran out of story for her and just added another bit I never liked Gloria much but I found her kind of superfluous in this book Her relationship with Jerome was adeuately wrapped up at the end of book 2 and I thought it felt stretched in this oneI did however enjoy the introduction of the new character Forest who is VERY Jay Gatsby esue I felt like he and Ruby were straight out of a Fitzgerald novel which is ironic since Forest says that he doesn t like Mr Fitzgerald s books purposeful irony I m assuming And the end to his story was also very Fitzgerald My inner literary nerd enjoyed this bit very much Overall I think fans of the series will enjoy this book But neither books 2 nor 3 really captured that spark of magic that was in book 1 I think maybe Larkin should have kept the series set in Chicago among all the mobsters and mystery Because once the girls set foot in New York the story felt like an Anna Godbersen remake Which is sad as Larkin is obviously a talented writerStill I d recommend this series It s got lots of great flapper info and I loved all the slang and fashion

    This is the third book in the Flappers series by Jillian Larkin and let me start off by saying that this is a series well worth submerging yourself in As stated above the books are set in the middle of the 1920

    If I were to compare all three books this one would probably be the worst While I’ve definitely been reading Larkin for the drama this was just too much Way too much especially towards the end The book as a whole had its moments—I liked that the former villain Lorraine redeemed herself and found out that she was than some petty unconfid

    So this was bad I had honestly forgotten that I’d read it It was so forgettable that literally days after I finished reading it I forgot what happenedHonestly you could take each of the character’s first and last chapters and delete everything in the middle and still have a coherent book While it was enterta

    355 starsOkay so this one dragged in a few places mostly I think because the main arcs were wrapped up in book two but I did like the ending and the epilogue for the closure it finally gave everyone involved in this series At first I asked myself why this book was needed at all and I eventually got my answer “Diva” is
