Meet Janine Kluckhohn — a local book influencer known as @downtogetthefictionon — who is giving you the 411 on Kansas City-focused literature. From KC authors to books set in the region, consider this your official Kansas City book club. Let’s hand it over to Janine:

Looking to add some romance to your February reading list? “A Blues Singer To Redeem Him” is a historical romance set in Prohibition-era Kansas City, written by Elle Jackson. This fast-paced romance follows Evelyn Laroque in the pursuit of her dream to become a blues singer while also navigating the dangerous racial landscape of KC and her growing feelings for Lorenzo De Luca, the infamous club owner and son of a Mafia kingpin.

Jackson, a Kansas City area native, set out to write stories that showcase underrepresented groups of people while allowing others to see cultures through a different lens. “A Blues Singer To Redeem Him” will give readers an insight into 1920s Kansas City while also telling an unforgettable (and maybe deadly) love story.
