Determined to make enough money to raise her unborn illegitimate child independently of the child's father and her family, socialite Pepper Schuyler auctions off a restored 1936 Mercedes Roadster. Buyer Annabelle Dommerich, who owned the car from 1936 to 1938, purchases it back, and the two women become friends, rescuing each other from complicated situations as their very different lives collide in surprising ways. Alternating between the stories of these two strong women from different generations determined to do the right thing, Williams's (The Secret Life of Violet Grant) suspenseful mystery and romantic historical fiction swings from 1930s Europe to 1960s Florida. Kathleen McInerney's smooth, nicely paced, emotive narration draws listeners into the riveting account of past and current lives.
VERDICT Will appeal to Williams's fans and those interested in historical fiction, the 1960s, pre-World War II, mystery, romance, and suspense fiction. ["The swift pacing and emotional twists and turns…will leave readers guessing up to the final pages": LJ 9/1/15 review of the Putnam hc.]
