Twenties Girl: 08/06/13
Twenties Girl is by Sophie Kinsella is the story of a ghost, Sadie, trying to get her stolen pendant back. She only has the help of her great niece, Lara.
Lara Lington is also the niece of a coffee baron — a self made millionaire who is now traveling the British isles (and quite possibly the world) hocking his "two coins" approach to success. Lara's side of the family, though, is rather average and Lara is sick to death of always being asked if she's one of THE LINGTONs.
Lara is also struggling to keep her newly started agency afloat. She's left in a lurch with her cofounder missing and no good leads coming in. So the last thing she wants to have is the now flapper fashioned twenty-something ghost of her recently buried (at age 105) great aunt yelling at her day in and day out to find her pendant.
It takes a while for the book to settle into itself as Lara and Sadie come to an understanding. Lara learns about her great aunt's extraordinary life, uncovers the truth behind a well known (but little understood) painting, and ultimately finds the pendant. There are other surprises along the way, making the initial slow start well worth the effort of listening to.
