Summary

A hooker. A mistress. A murder. This town was built on sin. The town of Trinidad, Colorado was a tough place to be a woman in 1913. But it was the best place in the West to find one, if you had the cash. Honeyville, they used to call it.

A murder throws Inez and Dora together - two women from opposite sides of town, in a town built for men. Against all odds, the well born girl and the high class hooker are drawn together in friendship…But this is a town that is rotten to the core, and beyond the rustling of silk skirts, the dancing and laughter, deadly unrest is building…

Welcome to Honeyville - a town living by its own rules, where nothing is quite as it seems. A story inspired by a lost chapter in American history.

Critic reviews

Praise for Melting the Snow on Hester Street:

"unputdownable" (Daily Mail)
"The delicately constructed plot keeps you guessing until the end … Waugh creates the early Hollywood world with verve and conviction in this taut, clever and moving novel" (TLS)
"dazzlingly evoked" (Sunday Times)
"A lubricious new novel … period charm and sexual intrigue" (Tatler)
"A dizzy tale about greed, love, fame and money. ****" (Heat)
"Gripping, glamorous and poignant, it's a cracking tale that will keep you hooked from beginning to end" (Hello!)
"Sunset Boulevard meets Nancy Mitford" (Red)
