    1. Delightful!I have heard several wonderful things about Ms. Leo's debut novel, so I quickly agreed to read her newest novel. I was not disappointed. Leo instantly transports her reader to the Jazz Age in Chicago, a time of speakeasies, flappers and gangsters. It is a time filled with high spirits and optimism just before the Stock Market crash of 1929. I found Dot to be an endearing heroine, who is trying to extricate herself from a tarnished past. Will she be able to find peace with God, forgive [...]

    2. Engaging!!!Ain’t Misbehavin’ is the sequel to You’re the Cream in My Coffee. Sequels are not always easy to write, and they need to be every bit as good as the first one. I found Ain’t Misbehavin’ as engaging as the first book. I loved looking back to a by gone era. Jennifer Lemont Leo has sprinkled tidbits of culture, inventions and history throughout the story of Charlie Corrigan and Dot Rogers. We were introduced to them in You’re the Cream in My Coffee. The characters struggle wi [...]

    4. What a wonderful book about the roaring twenties in Chicago. I received a free copy but never realized how delightful this book would be. The characters are so well suited that you feel as if you are there, especially Dot. Don’t miss out once it’s released.

    5. What a great way to experience the Roarin' Twenties! Leo does a bang-up job of setting the reader into the thick of gangster-ridden Chicago at a very volatile time in U.S. history. It's a roller coaster of ups and downs that will keep the reader turning the pages.Dot Rodgers hasn't been a poster girl for propriety since she fled her family and moved to Chicago, but she's not apologizing for it exactly. Charlie Corrigan may have been scarred by the Great War, but he's still got ambitions. Recapt [...]

    6. I don't read too many stories from the 1920's. I enjoyed this one. I like Dot and Charlie. They are both quietly struggling with self-esteem issues. Charlie was injured in the war and his fiancée broke their engagement when he came home injured. Dot doesn't think she is good enough for Charlie. She works hard and is trying to get away from her former friends. I will have to go back and read the first book in this series.

    7. This was a fun story taking place in Chicago during the roaring twenties. Gangsters, speakeasy, the Valentine's day massacre and the stock market crash. I enjoyed getting to know Dot and her struggles with her family relationships, her faith, Charlie and her determination to make it in the big city.
