About the Book
Lily and Rose, daughters of an empire coming of age in the roaring twenties, can have anything they want ... except freedom.

Expected to marry well and to take the reins of the empire, they have their lives planned out for them. But, Lily, Esme's daughter longs to return home to Montana, to adventure outside the confines of New York City. And Jinx's daughter Rosie dreams of the bright lights of the newly emerging silver screen. But following their dreams - from avant garde France, to Broadway, to the skies in the world of barnstormers and wing-walkers will take all their courage.

And if they find love, will they choose freedom or happily ever after?

My Thoughts
I knew when I started this book that I was a fan of Susan May Warren. After reading Baroness, though, I'm a bigger fan than before! The second book in the Daughters of Fortune series, Baroness tells the story of Lily and Rose, high-society cousins rebelling against everything they are supposed to be. Their family fortune assures them of every material thing they could ever want, but they each want to strike out on their own and gain something even more valuable—independence. Lily turns to flying, wing-walking, and the circus. Rose turns to one lover after another, finally escaping to the world of baseball. When they have what they think they want, they begin to realize that they still need each other.

So much more than a story about flappers, Baroness introduces readers to another side of the Roaring Twenties. Warren takes readers on a journey across Europe and the US—from Paris to New York to the wild west—on one adventure after another. By page three I was so hooked that I didn't want to stop reading—even for sleep or work! In addition to the fast-paced plot, I was impressed with the author's ability to make me care about the characters—even when I initially thought them annoying or spoiled. An interesting cast of supporting characters—from mobsters to pilots to flappers to baseball stars—allowed the readers to really see a variety of lifestyles. It's obvious that Warren did her research as I felt like I could be living in the 20s!

I can't wait to read the conclusion to this thrilling series! [5 stars]

I received a free copy of this book from Summerside Press and LitFuse Publicity in exchange for my fair and honest review.
