Jasmine “Jazz” Cross is an ambitious 21-year-old society reporter for the Galveston Gazette who wants to be taken seriously by the good-old-boy staff, but the editors only assign her fluffy puff pieces, like writing profiles of bathing beauties. But she’d rather help solve the murders of young prostitutes who have been turning up all over town. After Jazz gets to know some of the girls, she realizes there’s a lot more going on with the beauty pageant and its somewhat shady business sponsors. This is 1927 Galveston—the “Sin City of the Southwest,” with speakeasies, handsome Prohibition agents, gangsters and, as promised in the title, bathing beauties competing in the Miss Universe contest.

Bathing Beauties… is the sequel to Flappers, Flasks and Foul Play, the first in the series. Ellen will be on hand to meet the public and sign copies of both books.
