After the luxurious first novel of the series, things begin to heat up and become deadly serious in Beautiful Days. With family wars, speakeasy openings and relationship problems, there is never a dull moment and this novel will definitely impress, whether or not you liked the first!
I hardly want to spoil anything for you because so many intriguing things happen that will send you into a tailspin. As always, Godbersen transports us into the wonderful 20th century and shows us the real world of that time. If you've read Bright Young Things, you know that the different relationships are plentiful. Each and every one develops more in this book and provides that extra little bit of mystery. How exactly will things end for our three starlets? Will they get everything they wanted? Less? More? Something they never expected? Oh, at times I felt like crying and at others, squealing, but what did you expect? These characters grow greatly and will have affected you by the end! I can't pick a favourite.
While the first book concentrated more on the friendships and growth of the girls, Beautiful Days is action-packed and much more exciting. If you love deception, high-speed car chases and kidnappings mixed amongst your romance, this is the book for you! I absolutely loved the conclusion of this series. It was perfect and made me feel like reading the last few chapters over and over. A sense of contentment and complete fulfilment will wash over you as you bathe in the happiness of Letty, Cordelia and Astrid. Three girls with wild dreams have finally grabbed onto their desires and have no plans to let go. A sensational novel!
