(The second book in the Emily Daggett Weiss series)

Mar 23, 2014

What a fun book to read; especially if you like old Hollywood [silent era.] The mystery aspect was really good. One small critique is that the book opens with & refers to, several times, Billie Burke disguising herself blah blah blah... Billie Burke played Glenda the Good Witch in the Wizard of Oz and that voice! She used that voice in all of her pictures. There'd be no pretending not to be Billie Burke with that voice.
