IMG_5748My Review of “Tiffany Blues” by M. J. Rose  Atria Books  August 7, 2018

Bravo to M.J. Rose, Author of “Tiffany Blues” for the captivating, intriguing, mystical, mysterious, enthralling, artistic gem that she has written. The Genres for this novel are Historical Fiction, Fiction, Mystery and Suspense, and Romance. It is amazing how the author layers and combines History, Fiction, Art, Magic, and Music to illustrate truth and love.  I love the author’s vivid description of the landscape, nature, and the colorful cast of characters. The timeline of the story is 1924 and 1957 in New York. The story goes to the past when it pertains to the characters or events in this story.

The author describes her characters as complex and complicated, perhaps due to the circumstances of the events or  times in the story.  The story revolves around historical characters, and those made up in her imagination to  fit in.  M.J. Rose writes about Louis Comfort Tiffany, the esteemed Artist know for his elaborate and elegant stained glass window, and owner of “Tiffany”, the store  known for  jewelry, silver and other prestigious gifts,  Louis Comfort Tiffany was also known to sponsor an Artistic foundation for artists to come to his Long Island Paradise  at Laurelton Hill, his mansion on the elite North Shore.

Twenty four year old artistic Jenny Bell arrives at  Laurelton Hill, with her best friend Minx Deering, a  socialite, sculptor and artist. Jenny Bell  has deep dark dangerous secrets that she has buried.  Jenny shows exemplary talent in her drawings using black and showing light, but avoids color. After meeting with Louis Comfort Tiffany and his grandson Oliver, Jenny is encouraged to paint in color.  Jenny has a unique ability to see things by color.

There are twists and turns, betrayals, murder, and danger that seem to revolve around Jenny. There is theft and arson.  This is in contrast to truth, art, natural beauty and love. I received a copy of this ARC from NetGalley for my honest review. I highly recommend this novel to readers who enjoy suspense, mystery, fiction and historical fiction. I loved everything about this story!.
