    1 thought on “The Brink of Fame”

    1. First Line: When Emily Daggett Weiss boarded the Twentieth Century Limited in the spring of 1914, bound for a brief sojourn in the West, one or two old biddies gave her the hairy eye.Women just don't travel without a chaperone in those days, so Emily gets more than two hairy eyeballs looking in her direction along the route. Her husband has been out in Flagstaff, Arizona, scouting for a location to shoot their next picture and trying to locate some camels to use in the movie. When Emily inquires [...]

    2. “The Brink of Fame” by Irene Fleming, published by Minotaur Books.Category – Mystery/ThrillerIn 1913 Emily Daggett Weiss and her husband Adam were owners of a prosperous motion picture studio in Fort Lee, New Jersey. Emily is on her way to Flagstaff, Arizona where she is to meet her husband who is working on a picture.Arriving at their hotel in Flagstaff she finds that her husband has left and lost their business in a poker game, and to make matters worse he has run away with the star of t [...]

    3. While I only gave the first book 3 stars, it has remained in my memory so I was delighted to discover there was a sequel. I found the book to be a bright and entertaining read up until the last few pages when it felt like the author rushed to wrap it up. Too many things were left unfinished. When I like a character I want to know how that character's life is progressing as much as or more than I want to see the mystery solved. The period color and clothing descriptions were well done and I liked [...]

    4. What happened? The first book in this series - The Edge of Ruin - was a fun historical mystery with a plucky heroine (who didn’t read like a modern woman dropped into 1909). I adored it.The Brink of Fame has all of the same pieces that made the first book fun, but it's not good. Poor writing, weak characters I can sum up this book in one question: how is it possible to make 1913 Los Angeles and Hollywood boring?As bad as this book was, if there is a third book in this series (and given how b [...]

    5. This was a quick read but I was still entertained. I liked the characters and the setting (Flagstaff and Hollywood). I enjoyed the first book in the series - The Edge of Ruin - and it was great to read the further adventures of Emily Daggett Weiss.

    6. Poorly written mystery that takes place when talking movies are just beginning. Time period is interesting and that is it. Book by New Jersey author.

    7. I think these Irene Fleming stories are charming and fun. If you're in the mood for some light entertainment, these are worth a try.
