TIFFANY BLUES

MJ Rose broke this reader’s heart and then, as though using the ancient art of Kintsugi, healed me by sealing the future with golden veins of hope." —Randy Susan Meyers, International Bestselling Author

"Loved it! This was a fun one. Each night after work, I wanted to throw on a kimono, make myself a gin rickey, and read, read, read this book by the light of a Tiffany lamp. There were just a ton of atmospheric details in this book that made it a compelling read...Tiffany mosaics, the mansion, the artistic use of light and shadow, Ouija boards, opium addiction, prohibition, and peacocks! Really enjoyed it!" Rebecca Rittenour, BEXTER BOOK AND COPY (MILACA, MN)

"Tiffany Blues is one of M.J's best! I love the way she is so descriptive, allowing the reader to feel as though they are there! And her masterful talent for breathing life into her characters is extraordinary!" Cheryl Kravitz, MURDER ON THE BEACH MYSTERY BOOKSTORE (DELRAY BEACH, FL)

"I absolutely loved that Tiffany Blues breaks the mold for historical fiction novels centering around artists, which usually follow a story line that tells the tale of the woman behind the great artist and one of his famous masterpieces. Instead, we get a talented strong female lead intent on pursuing her dreams of being an artist... Jenny Bell proves to be a protagonist we want to see succeed.

"Ms. Rose also does a tremendous job, with her lyrical and enchanting prose, recreating the now-lost Laurelton Hall. It's as if we're walking the halls and strolling the grounds, experiencing Tiffany's estate as once was in its glory." Meaghan Beasley, ISLAND BOOKSTORE (KITTY HAWK, NC)

"e;Tiffany Blues is fabulous! Prepare to be swept away to a time and place that will thrill all the senses. Young Jenny Bell is an unforgettable character full of heart and tragedy. Author M.J.

Pour yourself a glass of champagne and raise a toast to one of the best books of 2018." Pamela Klinger-Horn100, EXCELSIOR BAY BOOKS (EXCELSIOR, MN)

"Painter Jenny Bell is young and has her late mother's talent.

Paula Longhurst, THE KING'S ENGLISH (SALT LAKE CITY, UT)
