ESCAPE TO ANOTHER ERA
Escapist fiction for me is a story so atmospheric that long after closing the book I can still visualize the scenes. Ms. Meyers' debut of Greenwich Village bohemian Olivia Brown and her motley crew of characters does just that. Yes, Olivia is shallow and self-absorbed, but, hey, she's only in her 20's. If this series is ever interpreted as a movie, buy stock in tobacco. Every other page someone was lighting up a cigarette, to the point, unfortunately, that it was a distraction. Did they really smoke non-stop in the '20's? We'd have no 85-year olds alive today! That aside, this entertaining mystery has me primed for the second in the series, Murder Me Now.
