    Passing Fancies features a remarkable protagonist in stylish, smart, and compassionate Julia Kydd, and I was riveted by her story and by the mystery that unfolds Highly original characters and a fascinating time and place of Jazz Age New York pulled me in and kept me turning pages Underlying social issues evoke some strong parallels to today, making this a must read novel.

    Thoughts After reading the first book with the character, I was eager to read this second book Our hopeful printer is moving in dangerous circles these days She s moving with the mixed racial set in Harlem and listening to jazz music She s making friends with people that pass and she doesn t understand just what the price could be for them or for her These are the days before ci

    This is second in the Julia Kydd series although I m not clear whether there arebooks about Julia coming or not In any case, it s another interesting and atmospheric period mystery, this time primarily set in Harlem, with lots of black artists, authors, and musicians Not an own voice story, but I thought she did a good job of describing a white person discovering the challenges o

    There are some pretty big themes in this book including racism, rape, and sexism It is historically accurate but can make for some heavy reading There are also some points that drag in the middle ish part I didn t love the way the story arc ended nor am I sure that I like how the overall story line moves forward at the end of the book I ve pondered it for a couple of days and still

    A Novel That Should Have Been Better Ugh Although I learned to enjoy the first book in this series, I struggled trying to complete this second installment Even though the novel eventually finished much stronger than I anticipated, the author simply tries to do too much and accomplishes too little with her disjointed storytelling Ouch Still trying to figure out why the author wrote thi

    Last year I read the first book in this series and I thought it was a promising start and was eager to see how this book would be I remember that the first book was a little on the slower side but I loved Julia the heroine and that s what made me want to read this one.One of the things that always caught my attention was that one of the featured characters was a black singer, so right

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I fell in love with Julia Kydd in the first book of this series, and overall was pleased with this book Benn does her research both in the aesthetics of the time period and the social and political issues I think she struck a fine balance between Julia s relative progressivism and her sort of oblivious privi
