Summary

The year is 1923. The Santa Rita No. 1 has hit the pay in West Texas, and San Angelo is becoming an oil boom town. Prosperity is flowing, and Miss Pearl's Parlor is open for business! Thirteen women have come to work at Miss Pearl's Parlor. How did they get there? What challenges did they have to overcome? Why did they make so much money? Why did they have so much business? Why San Angelo? In 1904, fate has brought Victoria Pearl McDougal to live in the adventurous West Texas frontier. In 1921 she has opened Miss Pearl's Parlor, a profitable business on the Concho River in San Angelo where she has incorporated her experiences working as a courtesan at the famous Everleigh Club in Chicago. Just like her mentors, Minna and Ada Everleigh, Victoria Pearl is an expert on men and allows only a select, gentlemanly clientele. The historical facts are true and the stories are real. Wait until you read about Suzy Poontang!

I love that it's about San Angelo

I had to finish the last 2/3rds of the book via Kindle because the narration bothered me. It really took me out of the moment.
