Book delivery!

most people do, I love getting my orders through the post. I ordered a copy of Last Dance with Valentino by Daisy Waugh from last week and it arrived this morning just as I was setting out to work.

Amazon synopsis

One night. One dance. One love to last a lifetime.

1916. Leaving war-ravaged London, Jenny Doyle sets sail for New York where she is to work for the de Saulles family. Their home, Gatsby-like in elegance, is rife with intrigue and madness. Only Jenny’s friendship with dancer Rodolfo offers escape… until, one tragic day, the household is changed forever.

1926. America booms, prohibition rules and Rodolfo has taken his place on the silver screen as Rudolph Valentino. Will the world’s most desired film star and his lost love have their Hollywood happy ending, or will the tragic echoes from their time with the de Saulles thwart them one last time?

I'm really looking forward to reading this - I read a sample of the book online and it sounds like a really interesting read.
I heard about the book when I was watching a video online of a flashmob advertisement of the book that HarperCollins publishers set up:

Just goes to show how well different advertising tactics can work!
