    One thought on “Jake & Clara: Scandal, Politics, Hollywood, and Murder”

    1. Jake & Clara is based on a true story. It has all the elements that are guaranteed to keep the reader riveted to their story . scandal, politics, corruption, sex, murder.Jake Hamon was a rich and powerful man in Oklahoma who deposited millions of dollars in Warren Harding's coffers when he was elected president. Harding was set to make Jake even more powerful than he already was. But there was a glitch Mrs. Harding, who was extremely straight-laced, let it be known that the much-married Jak [...]

    2. The story of Jake and Clara is a juicy one. Jake, a married oil tycoon, woos young Clara into a relationship. His megalomania is out of control. He wheedled his way into Warren Hardings pocket, and dreamed of living in the White House. His relationship with Clara stands in the way. Enter murder, newspapers, national headlines, scandal, and Hollywood. A crazy story that would only happen in America. I liked it, I stuck with it till the end. Too bad there isn't a non fiction account, historical fi [...]

    3. (1 1/2). Historical fiction? More like historical dysfunction. Based on a true story, this one reads like an overly long, blue movie episode of Hart to Hart or one of those 80's TV shows. Politics, romance, big money, bad morals, lots of lying and even more whiskey; all during prohibition. Oklahoma is the base but this one is all over the map. Easy to read, but very unimpressive.

    4. AWesome!!Although fiction, based on true accounts. I knew about Fatty and the rape scandal. Never heard of Clara and Jake. Really interesting. Enjoyed immensely!!

    5. This review originally published in Looking For a Good Book. Rated 2.5 of 5Jake Hamon was known as “The Oil King of Oklahoma" and like a lot of very wealthy men, even today, got very involved with politics. Hamon supported Warren Harding for the presidency and in turn, Hamon hoped for a cabinet post. But Hamon, also like a lot of wealthy men, even today, also dabbled with affairs of the heart. Despite being married, Hamon traveled with his mistress, Clara (who was legally named Hamon in order [...]

    6. Wow!! What a fantastic novel. This is the story of Jake Hamon and his longtime mistress Clara Smith Hamon. Clara was a young girl of 17, working as a clerk in a store when Jake, the older, sophisticated oil man strolled in. Immediately sparks flew and she quickly became his lover and mistress and would continue so for the next 10 years. Everyone in the town of Ardmore, Oklahoma was aware of this situation, even Georgia Harmon, Jake’s wife but all chose to turn a blind eye. Then Jake rose in th [...]

    7. At its core, Jake & Clara is the true story of the murder of Jack Hamon, a powerful oil man and politician with ties to the Harding administration. This book tells the story with embellishments, which makes it more of a historical fiction. However, those embellishments included dialogue that at times was distractingly shallow with a tone that was almost bubbly. The author provides just enough context to anchor the story, but not enough to bore the reader. The celebrity name-dropping—Dashie [...]

    8. This is a novelization of a true crime that took place in the early 20th century. There’s the runaway romance, the “other” woman, love, lies and scandal. It would have been enjoyable if it hadn’t been true, but the truth always hurts those caught in the middle. It’s a quick read about a little known crime, but crime it was! Stokes fills in the missing gaps with plausible conversations and missed connections. Who can be trusted? Who is working the system? And was justice served? Overall [...]

    9. I enjoyed this book, but thought the Shooting Salvationist one was better. This book is about a big Oklahoma oilman, Jake Hamon and his mistress, Clara. The standard love triangle turns deadly and Clara is tried for murder. The story of their stormy relationship is the first part then Clara's fugitive run and the trial round out the tale. The author does a good job of tracing Clara's run from justice and also giving the reader an inside look at law enforcement and newspaper journalism at this ti [...]

    10. An interesting story that has a little bit of everything. Politics, murder, scandal, sex and mystery. Writing and plot was good. Definitely made you feel like you were there with the characters. Stories about old Hollywood is a fun escape and this one is definitely one of those.I received a free copy for an honest review.

    11. Reviews were intriguing, but the book didn't live up to my expectations. I learned a bit about the time period, but wish there had been more descriptive writing. It was just dialogue.
