Publisher Description

A short story set in the roaring twenties by the author of the deliciously evocative love story A KISS FROM MR FITZGERALD.

It's 1922 in Concord, Massachusetts, a time when women are expected to do nothing more than marry as well as they can, as soon as they can. And whether she likes it or not, this is exactly what Evelyn Lockhart's conservative parents expect of her. While Evie's waiting for her handsome, wealthy neighbour Charles to propose, she has convinced her parents to let her study literature at college.

But when a chance meeting leads to a day of exciting adventure, Evie begins to realise that there could be so much more in her future than marriage, if only she dared imagine it . . .

If you loved THE PARIS WIFE and Z: A NOVEL OF ZELDA FIZGERALD, you will devour this short story that takes place before the full-length novel A KISS FROM MR FITZGERALD.

A lovely prelude to an excellent story!

I just finished “A kiss from Mr Fitzgerald” which I thoroughly enjoyed and was delighted to read this little starter.

Very disappointing

This isn’t a short story, really just a free ‘taster’ for a novel. I was very disappointed in the author.

Heidi Catherine ,

Loved it

I was already excited about the upcoming realease of 'A Kiss From Mr Fitzgerald', but after reading this prequel I’m counting down the days. Perhaps it should be renamed ‘A Beautiful Tease’.
