This book carries on from Tiger Bay Blues, and the Finders and Keepers series before that. However, you could read this as a stand alone book.

Set in Tiger Bay, Wales, this follows several people during the late 1920's/early 1930's. Edyth is trying to keep her relationship and bakery going, while Judy wants to realise her dreams as a singer. And David just wants to be near Edyth. Enter Aled James, who promises to wreak revenge...

*Possible spoilers*

I enjoyed this as a light, simple read with likeable characters. I thought Aled's character had the potential to be a lot more menacing than he was. The ending seemed to be a big event, then everything quickly tied up. I don't know if the author plans a sequel, but she could go either way with this ending. ( )
