A budding artist with a dark past. A wealthy socialite with a penchant for trouble. A living legend’s charismatic grandson. The three of them are brought together because of one shared passion. But will buried secrets shatter their jazz-kissed lives and destroy the bond they share? Find out in M.J. Rose’s beautiful and mysterious new novel, Tiffany Blues. 


Atria Books

During the midst of The Roaring Twenties, Jenny Bell arrives in New York City to accomplish the feat her parents never could: to become a successful painter. She’s prepared to do whatever it takes too, even if that means living in a tiny flat in Hell’s Kitchen and working long hours to afford art classes and the required accoutrements needed to bring her dreams to fruition.

Thankfully, she doesn’t have to go it alone. For when she meets the worldly Minx Deering, another talented pupil in her class, Jenny’s new friend takes her under wing and soon they are roommates as well as classmates, even though they are as different as night and day. Minx is eternally optimistic and adventurous, while Jenny is studious and serious about her art. Minx pushes Jenny to experience all that life has to offer, but Jenny has other ideas, troubled as she is by a past she can’t completely forget.

When the duo heads to Long Island to spend the summer at Louis Comfort Tiffany’s prestigious artist colony, Jenny becomes even more determined not to let anything distract her from her art. But then she meets Oliver, Tiffany’s handsome grandson, and soon her resolve slips as she falls under his spell. Meanwhile, visions of murder plague her thoughts and it appears that someone who knows her long-buried secret is determined to expose her and thereby threaten the very future she has worked so hard to build.

With Tiffany Blues, M.J. Rose has delivered a novel that is as gorgeous as the art Tiffany created. (If you’re not familiar with it, be sure to check out the video below.) Each page of this delicious novel lures readers deeper into the mystery surrounding the protagonist, sweet but haunted Jenny Bell, even as it explores the history of Louis Comfort Tiffany’s artist colony and what happened to his sumptuous estate, Laurelton Hall.

Rose deftly weaves together strands of history with romance, mystery with art, until she ultimately creates a tapestry as dazzling as the Jazz Age itself. Hypnotic and rife with passion, this story is both meticulously researched and impossible to put down, making for a story that does Tiffany’s remarkable life justice. Each page of Tiffany Blue is as luminescent as the art Tiffany was known for, and will undoubtedly become a favorite of readers for years to come.
