Publisher's Summary

Set against the turbulent and glamorous backdrop of Prohibition and the rise of the Jazz Age, The Gin Lovers was first published as a six-part e-serial. Now this sensual and romantic story of how one high-society woman's passion and courage lead her to love is available for the first time ever as a complete audiobook.

It's 1925, and the Victorian era, with its confining morals, is all but dead. Unfortunately for New York socialite Charlotte Delacorte, the scandalous flapper revolution is little more than a headline in the tabloids. She lives her rigid and controlling husband, William, but her Fifth Avenue townhouse is a gilded cage. But when William's rebellious younger sister, the beautiful and brash Mae, comes to live with them after the death of their mother, Charlotte finds entrée to a world beyond her wildest dreams - and a handsome and mysterious stranger whom she imagines is as confident in the bedroom as he is behind the bar of his forbidden speakeasy.

Soon Charlotte realizes that nothing is as it seems. Secrets are kept and discovered, loves are lost and found, and Charlotte finds herself on the brink of losing everything - or having it all.

Long time audiobook listener and this is at the top of my list

I find it very hard to find audiobooks that really are capable of pulling me in instantly, this book did that the entire length! I was completely enthralled and felt absolutely connected to each and every character. The main thing that shows me how amazing this book is is the fact that my fiancé actually listened to it and enjoyed it with me and that says a lot!!!highly recommend this title because I know everyone will enjoy it as much as I did!

WOW!

This is a well written and addictive audio book. The narrator's smokey smokey smooth voice takes your experience up a whole another notch.. I was sad when it ended. I will definitely read it again.

Top of my list for great e-books. Excellent

The Gin Lovers is a gripping story
with no shortage of great characters who seize the challenges & illegal opportunities arising from Prohibition. The book brings u to the basements of the Speakeasy , with wild parties, the rise of Jazz, and shady characters that will surprise you. From high society crime to those struggling just to ease the burdens of poverty, I think Jamie Brenner's, The Gin Lovers is one of her best Novels yet. It ends leaving u wanting more. Good news: it’s book 1 of 6. However, Audible doesn’t have the sequels (yet?) Speakeasy. Just listen, you’ll be glad u did!

Great story, horrible ending

I really enjoyed this book up until the very disappointing ending.
I wish the author had provided a
More satisfying closure.

Loved the Imagery

A cliffhanger ending?! Fun to delve into this era, love, and aristocratic lifestyle. More, please!!

A good listen

The voices were well done. The characters were well developed. I really wanted to know what was going to happen next. Good portrayal of the times of prohibition but with fresh characters.
