She left criminal life behind. Will her new business venture send her to sleep with the fishes?
Florida Coast, 1932. Edith Duffy might be grieving her gangster husband’s death, but she’s no damsel in distress. Leaving the sordid world of Philadelphia bootlegging, she settles in a small town outside Miami and buys a speakeasy. But when she launches a lucrative rum-running operation, indignant locals conspire to destroy her.
Edith lands squarely back in gangland culture, with a Bible-thumping preacher campaigning to shut her down and smugglers resentful of her skill. And now she must forge alliances and make unlikely allies just to survive. Luckily, her mentor is none other than the wife of the notorious Al Capone…
Will Edith’s fondness for underworld profits lead her to a dead end?
Gathering Storm is the first book in the Rum Runners’ Chronicles, a fast-paced historical women’s fiction trilogy. If you like atmospheric settings, mob stories, and independent heroines, then you’ll love Sherilyn Decter’s Prohibition-era adventure.
Wow!!! Gathering Storm is an incredible story that isead by a strong woman who never stands down and fights her way to her goals. Sherilyn Decter has written a novel that I could not get enough of. When I finished reading, all I wanted to do was pick the book up and read it again!
I haven’t read a ton of books about mobsters, but man was this compelling! I was drawn right into this world. Everything felt authentic and realistic. I was fascinated and could not read fast enough.
I cannot wait to read more from this author. I am so impressed. I don’t always mention the cover, but what I love is how fitting it is. Fabulous..highly recommended!!
