Empire Girls by Suzanne Hayes & Loretta Nyhan

New York New York...

Ivy and Rose Adams traveled to New York City after their father passed away and left them penniless.  They also had another mission which was to find a brother they never even knew existed and a brother that their father left everything to.

Ivy was excited to go to New York, but Rose was apprehensive because she was one who preferred staying home and taking care of domestic affairs, but was it fate that they went?

EMPIRE GIRLS is a fun, easy, entertaining read.  Ms. Hayes and Ms. Nyhan vividly depicted 1920's New York with its speakeasies, its glitz, and its glamour. The writing is descriptive, the storyline will hold your interest, and the characters are very likable.​

You will love both Ivy and Rose and perhaps see a little bit of yourself in either or both of them.  You will share their feelings and adventures and join them in their fun, their explorations, and their despair. EMPIRE GIRLS seemed to be a lesson about life and family.

​EMPI​RE GIRLS will steal your heart and have you missing the characters after you turn the last page.  The ending is heartwarming as well as a surprise.

Don’t miss reading EMPIRE GIRLS for a glimpse into life in the 1920’s and a reminder of the importance of friendship and family.  5/5

I received this book free of charge and without compensation from the publisher in return for an honest review.
