Yesterday's Stardust by Becky Melby

Yesterday's Stardust is the second book in the Lost Sanctuary Series, with the first being Tomorrow's Sun. In this book, Dani Gallagher, a journalist, is trying to write some articles about a local gang, and decides to essentially go undercover to get the real scoop. In the process she finds an old diary from the 1920's that contain clues to a lost treasure. Dani doesn't know enough of the history of the people to figure out these clues on her own, so she enlists a local chef and her neighbor, Nicky Firorini, to help her, as Nicky's family is mentioned in the diary. But things are just not as easy as Dani hopes. 

I enjoyed reading the book, and loved the history of the characters from the Roaring Twenties. In fact, I enjoyed reading the diary portions of the book more than the rest of the book. But I found Tomorrow's Sun, the first book in the series to be more interesting overall. I give this book 4 stars.
I received this book from the author herself for this review.
