Reviews

"Lady Be Good is a fascinating, endlessly entertaining romp through the 1950s through the eyes of a clever, complicated socialite. Funny and incisive, richly detailed and full of unexpected twists, this novel is a delight from the first page to the last."
--Anton DiSclafani, author of The After Party

"Brock (Fine Imitation, 2016) uses descriptions of the glamour of 1950s New York, South Beach, and Havana to add sparkle to this quick-paced period novel about a spoiled heiress who slowly learns to see beyond her own privilege."
--Library Journal

"An exciting romp through 1950's Manhattan, Miami, and Havana... a spellbinding story complete with captivating characters, sweet romance, and fascinating female friendships."
--Bustle

"Satisfying and heartwarming...a solid choice for historical fiction fans interested in the 1950's as well as readers who enjoy tales of women becoming empowered, taking control of their lives, and learning true friendship."
--Booklist

"Amber Brock's Lady Be Good is a charming, effervescent romp through 1950's New York, Miami, and Havana. But underneath the glitz and glamour of this fun and flirty page-turner is something deeper and far more important: a woman learning to see beyond her own life of privilege in order to find real love and lasting purpose."

Ariel Lawhon, author of I Was Anastasia

"Kitty Tessler, a headstrong glamour girl determined to move up in the world, steals the spotlight in Amber Brock's latest, a tour-de-force filled with intrigue and surprises."
--Fiona Davis, bestselling author of The Address and The Dollhouse

"A delicious slice of mid-century Americana--stylish, sexy, and bursting with color and sound. From the glittering skyline of Manhattan to the club scene in pre-revolutionary Havana...Brock has created a fascinating journey of self-discovery as Kitty searches for love and the strength to forget all she once believed was true, and embrace the new and modern woman she wants to be."
--Karen White, bestselling author of The Night the Lights Went Out
