In Jazz Age Chicago, Dot Rodgers sells hats at Marshall Field while struggling to get her singing career off the ground. Independent and feisty, she's the life of the party. But underneath the glitter, she doesn't believe she's worth the love of a good man. Why would a strong, upstanding man want to build a future with a shallow, good-time girl like her?
Small-town businessman Charlie Corrigan carries scars from the Great War. After all he's been through, he wants nothing more than to marry and start a family. But the woman he loves is a flamboyant flapper with no intention of settling down. She's used to a more glamorous life than he can offer. As his fortunes climb with the stock market, it seems he's finally going to win her love. But what happens when it all comes crashing down?
Ain't Misbehavin' by Jennifer Lamont Leo
Jennifer Lamont Leo has done it again! Continuing the characters from her first novel, you find yourself wishing Charlie and Dot would just stop and relax in each other. I loved this book almost as much as the first.
Ain’t Misbehavin’ is a Must-read for Historical Fiction Fans

If you like historical fiction, you’ve got to pick up this book! With intriguing characters, an authentic and captivating setting, and beautiful, truly Christian values, Ain’t Misbehavin’ was a great read the whole way through. I read the first book in the Roaring Twenties series as well, and it seems the supporting character from that book was so popular that the author had to write a story about her too! Dot is sarcastic, hilarious, and spunky, but also had real doubts that I could relate to. I found it a charming, engaging read.
