TIFFANY BLUES Synopsis:
New York, 1924. Twenty‑four‑year‑old Jenny Bell is one of a dozen burgeoning artists invited to Louis Comfort Tiffany’s prestigious artists’ colony. Gifted and determined, Jenny vows to avoid distractions and romantic entanglements and take full advantage of the many wonders to be found at Laurelton Hall.
But Jenny’s past has followed her to Long Island. Images of her beloved mother, her hard-hearted stepfather, waterfalls, and murder, and the dank hallways of Canada’s notorious Andrew Mercer Reformatory for Women overwhelm Jenny’s thoughts, even as she is inextricably drawn to Oliver, Tiffany’s charismatic grandson.
As the summer shimmers on, and the competition between the artists grows fierce as they vie for a spot at Tiffany’s New York gallery, a series of suspicious and disturbing occurrences suggest someone knows enough about Jenny’s childhood trauma to expose her.
Supported by her closest friend Minx Deering, a seemingly carefree socialite yet dedicated sculptor, and Oliver, Jenny pushes her demons aside. Between stolen kisses and stolen jewels, the champagne flows and the jazz plays on until one moonless night when Jenny’s past and present are thrown together in a desperate moment, that will threaten her promising future, her love, her friendships, and her very life.

❤️ MY REVIEW:
I love this author’s beautiful writing! The pictures she paints with her words are stunning and simply marvelous. The world created in this vibrant tale of talented artists, young lovers, horrific tragedy and a time of yesteryear is like none other. I love the factual history of Tiffany and his estate for artists. This held a special interest for me since I once created stained glass art and emulate Tiffany’s exceptional techniques for my works. Her vivid descriptions of the sublime Tiffany culture, the estate and the group of artists ensconced there in the 1920’s are superb.
The characters are wonderfully layered and uniquely different, each with their own story amidst the camaraderie, romance and secrets. The heroine, Jenny, is harboring a secret that could be life altering if exposed. Her story is revealed in a flip between the past and present. As it unfolds, Oliver is there to support her and his love for her is wonderful. If only the young lovers could withstand the drama and intrigue .
Exceptional storytelling with elements of darkness, danger and mystery that flash with the creativity of the characters leaves me supremely satisfied as a reader. Just fabulous! Five star and more.
