After a passionate night with Jake, Charlotte can’t help but wish she was a free, unmarried woman. But when a trip to visit her parents reveals a devastating truth about her mother, Charlotte knows she is trapped in her loveless marriage. When Jake confides in her about a risky business deal in the works, he offers her a way out. But will it be too little, too late?

The Gin Lovers is a six part series about life and times of the twenties during prohibition that focuses on the Delacorte family.  During this trying time Charlotte is learning a lot about herself and her relationship with her husband; she doesn’t like what she sees and starts things in motion to do something about it.

Society Sinners picks up right where book two left off.  Charlotte is exploring life outside of her marriage with hottie, Jake.  He makes her realize what it’s like to have someone love her properly and now she can’t look at her husband the same way.  She starts thinking about the future but after an impromptu visit home, things change and she realizes that she may not be able to make the changes that she would like to.

The longer Charlotte stays married to her husband, the more she starts to hate her life.  She starts making small changes to her appearance, first with a shopping spree with Mae and now a trip to the beauty salon.  She is expected to be the role model for their family and her sister-in-law Mae but in truth, Mae is showing her how to live.

Charlotte knows that her husband is up to something and it can’t be good based on what she found in his office.  She is also starting to suspect that there is more than friendship between him and Amelia.  In some respects I think she would be relieved if there was something going on between William and Amelia because it would let her “off the hook” so to speak.    William is a product of the society during that time period.  He believes in trying to protect his family name and image and that women are meant to take care of the home.

It was nice to see the stories of the other characters continuing and I can’t wait to see what is going to happen with the rest of the story, especially how this one ended.   I enjoyed this installment in the series and am looking forward to reading the next installment.  I give Society Sinners 3½ Flaming Hearts.  3.5 Hearts
