About the story:

Black Tuesday, October 29, 1929, the day the stock market crashed. And the day Evelyn Ford will never forget.

With the untimely death of her parents and the mysterious disappearance of her brother, bare cupboards force Evelyn to seek employment anywhere she can get it—even if that means becoming a bootlegger and illegally running hooch. Too bad her new boss ends up being none other than Don Vincent Giovanni, a Kingpin in city of New York. Thrown into the world of the mob, she finds herself drawn to Max Catalano, the only man she believes she can trust.

Unfortunately, the family’s Consigliere has secrets of his own. Secrets that could get him and those he’s protecting killed. The last thing he needs is a beautiful young woman messing with his well-laid plans—especially when her foolish choices get entangled in the middle of the mafia crime wars.

Can he keep her safe? Or will both of their deceptions catch up with them in the end?

My review:

I loved reading As The Liquor Flows! It is a novel set in 1930 during the stock market crash. Evelyn Ford needs to find a way to survive the depression – and it’s just her luck that she’s pretty enough to be a show girl. It’s the classic story of a girl taking her life into her own hands after the world has fallen apart, but this one has quite the edge. It is there that she meets a very dangerous man and she comes face to face with a life that she never imagined she would have. I loved the book’s film noir-esque vibes & the blonde heroine’s moxie. This story is complete with gangsters, suspense, and a budding romance that will force you to keep turning the page to see what happens next. It is everything that I hoped it would be – and gosh the cover is just beautiful, too. Keep writing, Ms. Archer! I love your books.
