Yesterday's Stardust

Journalist Dani Gallagher finds a tattered diary written in the Roaring Twenties—and clues to a lost treasure. Chef Nicky Fiorini helps unravel the clues, and attraction ignites, but Dani is hiding her own secret. In hopes of a great story, she’s using questionable means to gather information on a local teen gang. Just as she and Nicky are on the verge of solving the mystery, internal fighting breaks out in the gang. Dani is caught the middle, and Nicky is furious. Then the diary leads to a hidden room and a shocking discovery, but have they missed the real treasure?

Yesterday's Stardust is a great story with themes of gangs, the roaring twenties, farm anf city life, old and new. I am typically not a fan of books that jump time between two stories but this one is so riveting I could not resist. Francie is the girl of the 20's while Dani is the girl of present day. Both leads some pretty exciting lives from farm girl to gangsters girl/designer for Francie and Journalist to non profit work for Dani. It really is a great tale of two lives and the changes they go through. 

Each girl has a love in her life, a side to it that involves gangs both past and present. It is so fun to go along and learn a bout that life. In the end though the love story is what melts my heart and the surprise characters that come toward the end of the book. actually all of the surprises.. won me over! If you looking for the story of love and passionate career, a little fear and drama, this is your next must read!
