Another kudos to Jill Shure! This book was fabulous. I have always been intrigued with novels that take you back in time, especially with a mix of romance and mystery.
Read a Jill Shure book and you will definitely look forward to another. If you haven't read the sequel to Night Glitter, definitely read it also. It's called Night Jazz.
Jill has me hooked! In "Night Jazz", Jeri Devlin is looking for her brother who mysteriously disappeared. She goes to sleep in her hotel room in and wakes up in , somehow transported back in time. You accompany Jeri as she makes a life for herself, finds love, and adapts to living in one of the most turbulent times in American history.
Jeri is broke, hiding from mobsters and living in The Rainbow Brothel in California. Lex is a patient at a sanitarium in New York recovering from tuberculosis. While I don't remember there being many curse words in the first book, there are several in the prologue of the sequel, and lots more scattered throughout the story. If you cannot stand to have curse words in your reading material, even though the story is great, you may want to stay away from this one.
Chapter one takes us back to New York in October so we can experience Jeri's journey from being financially stable and secure to living alone, separated from her husband, with barely any money at a brothel. Lex had known for a while that something serious was wrong with him. Not wanting to infect Jeri, he turned rather cold towards her.
Though extremely close and intimate before sickness entered the picture, they are now beginning to drift apart, just as Lex planned. He is pushing her away, hoping she won't miss him so much when he is no longer around. A final vacation to Havana, Cuba is taken before Lex enters the sanitarium.
Feeling bad for the way he has been treating Jeri, he tells her that she has always been the only one since they met. As he bids her goodbye a wad of money is stuffed in her hands. He tells her to go back home to California, not realizing the California she came from is very different than the one he is telling her to go to.
She settles into The Bayridge House and begins a search for her descendants. An interview with a movie producer is promising, but then the mobsters find her and want to know where Lex is. One of the guys beats her up and is about to rape her when he is interrupted at gunpoint by the landlady of the house. He flees and the landlady helps Jeri escape.
Meanwhile, Lex notices patients keep disappearing at the sanatorium and realizes they are dying. He is so sure that he doesn't have much longer left to live.
Jeri receives a letter from Keely, one of her and Lex's former servants. She was forced to give out Jeri's location by the mobsters who caught up with her, though she did manage to convince them she had no idea where Lex was at. The mystery of how the mobsters tracked her across the country is solved.
Once she leaves Bayridge house, she manages to find her ancestors. They are extremely stuffy, religious people. Young Lorena, Jeri's cousin and madam of the Rainbow Brothel, is the exception. She offers Jeri a room, without any obligation to work there, for a small amount of rent. Jeri gladly excepts and moves out of the dry, stuffy house. Lex's mother pays him a visit.
He gives the arrogant, snobby woman the letters he has written to Jeri and asks her to mail them. She says she will, but instead opens and reads them, then throws them in the fire. She is convinced that Lex has money hidden away somewhere, Jeri has plenty of money and that they have decided not to help her out any at all. Lorena and a male friend take Jeri to a Hollywood party. Jeri isn't really impressed by it - she used to go to them before she traveled back in time.
She meets Franky Wyatt there, the guy she almost had a fling with in Havana before Lex was admitted to the sanitarium. Jeri is separated from Lex only because of the tuberculosis.

She starts a very different life than she had ever imagined herself ever living and makes some mistakes that you will have to read about. Didn't like Jeri in this novel as much as the first one. She seems to have lost her morals a little in this one. But the journey was fun and I hope that Jill Shure continues to right about Jeri's travels throught the past and the future.
Aug 30, Erin rated it really liked it Shelves: I downloaded this one immediately after reading Night Jazz. This was a very good sequel, and I would have given it 5 stars, only I found it quite depressing. I had to keep reading, because I couldn't wait for things to get better. Hey, it was set during the depression, so what did I expect? There were some very uplifting times, too, though. I loved these two books because they don't follow the usual romance genre format. This is definitely a must read read Night Jazz first. I was so glad to co I downloaded this one immediately after reading Night Jazz.
I was so glad to continue Jeri and Dez' story, as well as others from Night Jazz, and meet all of the new characters introduced in this book.

Plus, it does have a good ending, which is a requirement for me! Her finding Dez was, indeed, magical, but it was immediately after Franky had dumped her.

It made her seem a bit It wasn't like Dez was just a substitute for Franky. We always knew she loved Dez. But I really wanted her to get strong enough to dump Franky on her own and be ready to face life on her own for awhile. Even if the book didn't give her any time on her own before she met up with Dez, I really felt like she needed to wise up to Franky, and be the one to dump him.
