    READ ¹ A Girl Like You A Girl Like YouThis book was hard to review On one hand I wasn’t entirely in love with it but on the other hand I was invested enough to want to unravel the mysteryI really enjoyed the authentic historic feel of the book and I also liked that the author decided to go with a little ‘seedy’ feel to the novel It wasn’t a typical murder mystery for me which kept things interestingThe whole prostitute ring and the dance hall darlings felt like a 1930s Law and Order SVUI really really liked how the author went in a different direction than a traditional mystery novelAs for the characters it was kind of a mixed bag for me O

    READ ¹ A Girl Like You A Girl Like YouTime travel does exist I know this to be true because author Michelle Cox’s A GIRL LIKE YOU is a portal that transports readers back to the Chicago underworld of 1935 So authentic so well written my eyes stung from the blue haze of smoke hanging low in the dubious joint—the Marlowe—where Henrietta’s agreed to work undercover for Inspector Howard And while her body's in physical danger of falling into the hands of gangsters her heart's in emotional danger of falling in love with the inspector I can hardly wait for the next installment—A Ring of Truth

    READ ¹ A Girl Like You A Girl Like YouHenrietta Von Harmon was 18 years old She was the oldest in a very large family and needed a job Long story short Inspector Clive Howard asked her to assist the police in a murderprostitution ring bust They had previously met when she was a taxi dancer and he was working undercover I gave a wide berth to the multisided plot and then once ignored realism for the sake of entertainment Like some other reviewers pointed out this historical mystery was hard to review On the one hand the feel of the era was mesmerizing I felt I was in the 1930’s Henrietta was very naive but I liked her grit Though Inspector Howard was in his mid 30s I thought he should have used better judgement asking Henrietta to work for him The downside view spoilerThe

    READ ¹ A Girl Like You A Girl Like YouI've been having a run of bad luck when it comes to books recently I wanted to like this one as the lead character sounded interesting a 30's woman that works as a dancer to support siblings and mother and would be helping solve a murder mystery Unfortunately Henrietta turned out to be far from the spunky and smart woman I had imagined and the added romance was not really believableSPOILERSConsidering how long she's been working and as a super gorgeous girl in sketchy places so she should be aware Henrietta is ridiculously naive Early on it sets her up as having discovered a small talent for acting from one of her jobs I did not see any evidence of this though other characters claimed she had fooled them into thinking she was experienced In actuality she bumbled around being super obvious in her investigation and blabbered about working undercover for the cops to several different people until it nearly got her and everyone else killed H
