Fiona Davis’ books are a mixed bag for me. I kinda liked The Masterpiece and really liked The Address). Chelsea Girls was good enough that even though I had to speed-read because someone else wanted it from the library and, though it was late and I was tired, it kept me awake and interested. It’s the story mostly of Hazel, but also Maxine, who meet working for the USO. It’s the McCarthy era and Hazel and Maxine’s Broadway hopes and dreams are in peril because of their communist connections. The story is fast-paced and was interesting to me since it’s a topic I don’t know much about. I enjoyed it.
