    I agonised over which book to read first in 2017, given the multitude options I m glad to report I ve picked a very enjoyable novel, that I gobbled up over two days.Young, feisty Evie Lockhart, wants to do with her life than just be a wife and a lady of society There weren t many options for well to do girls in the 1920 s America Fate has a way of showing Evie what she should do with her life With the help of her nice neighbour and potential mother in law, Mrs Whitman, she ends up going to New [...]

    What a wonderful story A story I didn t want to end Once you start reading you will not want to put this book down From the manors of Concord to the speakeasies of Manhattan, Evie dances her way to a doctor s degree She was doing what she wanted to do, living the life she chose to live, not the life someone else had chosen for her But could a spurned suitor take everything she had battled for away from her This is a story of high society, secrets, lies, blackmail, misunderstandings and deathly t [...]


    Amanda - Mrs B"s Book Reviews

    Since reading A Kiss From Mr Fitzgerald, I have been trying to gather my thoughts together to write a review that will do this book justice As the year draws to a close, I would have to say that A Kiss from Mr Fitzgerald is my top pick for the best historical fiction novel of 2016.Why do I rate this book so highly Well it has a lot to do with a combination of the book s features that click together in such a fashion that it just works so well The main character of Lester s novel is perhaps the o [...]

    4.5 sA Kiss From Mr Fitzgerald is the third book by Australian author, Natasha Lester Evelyn Lockhart has finished college Well, as much college as her parents believe appropriate for a woman, as much college as her father is willing to fund After all, it s 1922, and Evie s ambition should be to find a husband, be a good wife and bear him children It has been assumed, since they were both little, that Evie will marry Charlie Whitman, heir to the Whitman banking empire, so literature and embroide [...]

    Some of the world s most famous women movie stars, celebrities, writers and intellectuals were born out of the upheaval of the women s rights movement in the 1920 s women such as Coco Chanel, Zelda Fitzgerald, Marlene Dietrich, Edith Wharton, Amelia Earhart and Florence Sabin In A Kiss from Mr Fitzgerald, author Natasha Lester introduces us to yet another Evelyn Lockhart who is about to prove that she s not your average 1920 s young woman.Although only a figment of Natasha s imagination, Evelyn [...]

    I wish I could give this book 6 stars, or even 10 When Evie Lockhart set her mind to becoming an obstetrician, despite the scruples of mid 1920s New York telling her it wasn t possible, she also set off on a journey which I think will capture the hearts and imaginations of all readers Evie is a true heroine determined, self reliant, unapologetic but kind hearted While love may be in the cards for her, Evie s happily ever after is of her own making, and after closing this book I find myself wishi [...]

    Loved it.From the time I opened and started reading A Kiss From Mr Fitgerald, I was enchanted and found myself returning to the book every moment I could I loved it.It is set in the 1920 s when to be a woman was a matter of making a good marriage and then raising children, attending the right parties and embroidering at home Imagine However Evie dreams bigger than that An incident close to home, a very sad one, leads her to her chosen path She decides she wants to be an obstetrician A very unusu [...]

    A delightfully delicious love story set in decadent 1920s New York Headstrong, feisty Evie Lockhart faces certain social ruin when she chases her dream of becoming a doctor during a time when societal ladies were expected to be satisfied within the confines of the home Even shocking, is Evie s desire to become an obstetrician.In pursuit of her dream Evie faces challenges that cut to the very core of her being Lester has delivered an inspiring tale of tender love and lays bare how difficult it w [...]

    This was excellent, but not what I expected First, for some reason I wasn t expecting what was essentially, a love story Second, it was far graphic than I d anticipated in terms of the obstetric discussions.I haven t read Natasha Lester before, but I had heard a lot of the hype when this book came out and I have a lot of friends who read it and loved it.I can definitely see why it was a hit.The writing style is very approachable The research to me felt impeccable It got all the feels from me, t [...]

    It s been weeks since I finished this and I still can t find all the words I d been waiting for this book to come out since the middle of last year, since I discovered the inspirational Natasha Lester s blog and maybe, perhaps, began to slightly stalk her online Natasha has heaps of writing advice to share and I couldn t wait to see how she applied it all in her historical fiction novel Wow.Natasha s writing is a bridge between literary and commercial fiction There is romance, mystery, medical d [...]


    Vanessa Carnevale

    It s difficult to find the words to convey how exquisite I think this book is The compelling characters captured my heart from the first page and did not let go of me until the end I was left thinking about the main character of this novel for days Meticulously researched, with a Jazz Age setting that felt so authentic, I loved every page Not only is Natasha Lester s transportive writing captivating, the story itself, which follows a determined young woman with her heart set on becoming an obste [...]


    Michelle

    What an exciting, heart breaking and devastating story of life in 20s, what an inspiring woman our heroine is.Historical novels aren t always my thing and generally when I think historical I head back to the 18th and 19th centuries rather than the early part of the 20th.A Kiss From Mr Fitzgerald is set in the middle of the 1920s, with prohibition in force and a major change brewing Lester has painted a vivid picture of a New York life in the 20s that makes me look at all the things we take for g [...]


    Charlotte

    I loved this book


    Adora Herveaux

    If Lizzie Bennett had been born in the 1920s I imagine she d be just like Evie Lockhart determined to be than just someone s wife The love story was a little lacking at times but overall an inspiring read that ll make you want to visit a speakeasy If you enjoyed Jane Austen s Pride and Prejudice, you ll love this.


    Kerran Olson

    4.5 some spoilers Absolutely love this book I love the glitz and glamour of anything Fitgerald esque, and I like how this book portrays Evie s struggles as she is not supported by her family when she starts to move towards modern, scandalous goals The contrast between Evie s proper upbringing and family and the decadent 1920s lifestyles portrayed in many other books Fitzgerald in particular is really well done I also love Tommy, and think that Evie and Tommy s relationship progressed well, as t [...]


    Carolyn

    A Kiss from Mr Fitzgerald by Natasha Lester, I fell in love with.It is a captivating, tragic love story set amid the fragile hearts and glamour of 1920 s New York.The story of Evelyn Lockhart with her dreams and emotions captured my heart.I was there, I was a Ziegfield Follie, I was the obstetrician I was the one longing for The Kiss.Set in a world of Manhattan, gin, jazz and speakeasies, sequins and feathers on costumes.I moved through this book like I was on a filmstrip.A novel filled with ima [...]


    Marie McLean

    There were so many things I loved about this bookThe backstory about women having to fight to be treated as equals in the 1920 s especially when it came to education and careers the luscious setting of New York jazz, speakeasies, Ziegfeld Follies, fashion and fabulous architecture I only wish I had read it while I was in New York earlier this year the description of obstetrics in the 1920s I m really happy to have given birth in the current era the love story between Evelyn and Thomas and also b [...]


    Rebecca

    A complete and utter crock of shite and clunky writing Please please please remind me not to be sucked in by obviously rigged reviews on recently released titles I should know better I can t even say I got past 20 pages Nooooooooooo


    Kathy

    Well Natasha Lester has become one of my fav authors What an absolute gem She has the ability to take you to a time and place and make you feel as if you are there The characters are friends that you feel you actually know and you are effortlessly swept away to another time and place This is now my second Lester book after a than 5 star Her Mother s Secret and I can just say I LOVE this writer Evie Lockhart was an amazing character, strong, brave and ahead of her time as she decides she wants t [...]


    Joy

    I really enjoyed this book Natasha obviously researched extensively to include facts and information about landmarks around the City, the trials and tribulations of a woman in a man s world in medicine and the nightlife of a Follies Showgirl.I was drawn into the story, and really wanted Evie to have her Happy Ever After with Thomas.A beautifully written tale.


    Jenny

    A lovely gentle read that comes also with a positive message about following your dreams and working hard to achieve what might seem the impossible The novel was set in her heady and lively days of New York in the 20s, a challenging time for women who wanted to make their way in professions that were not deemed suitable for them For Evie she surprised everyone, in ways than one, which makes for a captivating romance as well as a solid commentary of the times.

    In 2012, Natasha Lester was my guest at one of my early Stories on Stage events Few of the audience had heard of her I was the only one who had read her two books She was polished and professional in fact, she was so well prepared that audience members were left open mouthed at the end of her talk Fast forward three and a half years These days, through a combination of sheer hard work, belief and talent, Natasha is very well known in the Perth writing community She s highly regarded for her writ [...]

    THIS TALE OF a young woman with her heart set on becoming one of just a handful of female Doctors in booming Charleston era America is a stirring, blood pumping, fascinating and highly entertaining way to spend three hours of your life Not only do we get to know, and fall in love with the book s main character, but the reader is blessed with a history lesson on what life was like back when men ruled just about every aspect of western civilisation The first shock of the book, however, comes at th [...]

    A Kiss from Mr Fitzgerald by Natasha LesterI loved this book and don t hesitate to give it 5 stars.It s the 1920s in Manhattan A new era where women enjoy freedom but not without a struggle to achieve it.Evie Lockhart is one of these women Evie wants to follow her dream of being an obstetrician but even in New York with its gin, jazz, glitter and modernity, a woman wanting to become a doctor is all but ostracized After leaving her comfortable home, her conservative family, and Charlie the boy n [...]


    RitaSkeeter

    I enjoyed this a whole lot A backdrop of the swinging 20 s and the Ziegfeld follies was always going to be fun, but add in themes around suffrage and it was a winner for me.Things I really enjoyed about this book Well I already mentioned the backdrop, but I ll mention it again I enjoyed the plot of a young woman fighting against family, society, and patriarchy to become an obstetrician I hadn t expected to enjoy reading about early obstetrics as much as I did Thank you know who not Voldemort tha [...]


    Deborah

    I m not a fan of historical fiction OR romance so I started this book with some reticence figuring I might as well give it a try.And I kept reading and reading because I LOVED it It s the first book I ve read by Lester and she scored on all fronts The characters were great it was eloquently written so effortless reading and the plot itself addictive.It wasn t the dreary historical piece I was dreading and nor was it some Barbara Taylor Bradford like saga sweeping several generations.Much of the [...]


    Nicky Robinson

    Fabulous read Set in 1920 s New York, which seems ridiculously cool and glamorous, this book follows the story of an ambitious small town girl who moves to New York to become the first female obstetrician She was bold and inspiring, and pushed the boundaries of what was deemed socially acceptable at the time While discussing this at a book club breakfast, it became obvious we were all drawn to the strong female lead and her fight against not only male but family and societal judgement and pressu [...]


    Julie Grasso

    Natasha Lester has done a wonderful job of depicting the struggle of a young women named Evie, who after a life changing event that ended in tragedy for a friend, embarks on a journey to go where no woman has gone before To become an obstetrician The fly in the ointment is that she must leave all that she ever cared for, to make it into medical school With no support from her family, she finds herself dancing at the Follies to pay her way Add in a love triangle, with unequal sides of course, an [...]


    Nicki Markus

    It s lucky I ended up reading this while my husband was on night shifts, as once I started, I couldn t put it down and stayed up late two nights in a row to finish it A Kiss From Mr Fitzgerald captivated me from page one Evie is a character who is immediately approachable and engaging Right from the start, I felt I knew her and wanted her to succeed There were some good twists along the way A couple of times, I thought I knew what was going to happen, but then something changed, taking the story [...]


    Lana

    From the moment I started reading this book, I knew that the author had done her homework From the way the characters speak, to what they wear, the setting, and the attitudes of the day I was instantly transported to the roaring twenties Sometimes when I read historical fiction, I find it hard to immerse myself because the world is so different than today But I enjoyed Evie s journey through life, and caught myself quite a few times getting very angry when the men treated her and the women of he [...]
