The 20’s Girl, The Ghost and All That Jazz by June Kearns

The 20's Girl, the ghost, and all that jazzThe 20’s Girl, the ghost, and all that jazz by June Kearns

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was delightful, I read it in less than 24 hours. Set in 1924 the book covers two extremely different settings. Firstly the English Shires, lush, green, damp and a place short of men after the War and the Flu epidemic. Secondly Texas, vast, hot and dry, full of rough men and cattle.

Gerardina Chiledexter has been left a bookshop and a heap of debts by her flamboyant aunt. When a complete stranger announces that she has been left half a Texas ranch by a man she’s never heard of, a chance to pay off all her debts looks hopeful. But Aunt Leonie left a letter asking Gerry to visit Texas before she sells her half.

On a whim, Gerry travels thousands of miles to Jericho Wells and the Circle O Ranch. But Coop and everyone there make her feel very unwelcome. She struggles to fit in and when Doc Hyde reveals that Coop can’t pay up, Gerry hot tails it back to England.

With no nest egg and the bookshop falling down around them, it looks like Archie’s offer of marriage is the only way out, unless the ghosts that surround Gerry finally get their way. looking forward to reading more by this author.

  1. Rosie, another great review. You’ve caught the very essence of 20’s girl. My only complaint (ahem) about the book is that it ended too soon. Loved it.

  2. I have recently read this book too and loved it. You can almost feel the wind and the Texas heat wafting out of the book, can’t you? The main character, Gerry, is instantly likeable and I was rooting for her throughout the novel. Like you Rosie, I am looking forward to reading more from June Kearns too.
