Nothing says "fresh start" like a birthday. But sometimes the past won't let you go...
With her thirty-mumble-birthday on the horizon, amateur sleuth and fashion expert Samantha Kidd is determined to get her life under control. Her steady job at Retrofit Magazine comes with a paycheck, medical benefits, a 401K, and an assignment to dive into seventies style.

Kept reading till over
I couldn’t stop reading the book by the time I got to the middle. Every page had something going on. I admit staying up till 3-3:30am two nights running was difficult for me, but I couldn’t stop reading it. So leave yourself plenty of time, and snacks.
