Fabulous Jazz Age historical romance
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Any book which references the 1897 St Helens Challenge Cup team’s front row as inspiration for the name of one of the characters is a winner in my book.
Rugby League is often overlooked by its posher big brother so this made me very happy.
That it comes along with a superbly plotted historical romance set against the backdrop of anarchist plots in London in the late 1920s can only be a bonus.
Everything about this book just worked for me and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
