    Fascinating heroine

    Vera Garland is one of the best characters I’ve read about in a long time! While holding up her place in NY’s society as the daughter of a very successful department store owner, she is also undercover as a reporter covering many of society’s ills in the early 1900s. With the hope of an expose of the rumors about the Hope diamond, Vera gets involved in more than she had anticipated. This book shows the issues of the era, many of which are still relevant today. It is also a very fascinating commentary on women’s issues of the times, of how far we’ve gone and yet how far we have to go. I highly recommend this book!

    Intriguing

    A masterpiece of historical fiction with history thrown, immerse the reader in New York City in 1910. This is the first book I have read by this author, but definitely will not be the last. Her detailed settings and character building is amazing as we follow the heroine trying to eek her way as an outstanding journalist, when it was still hard for women to step out of the household. Cartier, a name that is synonymous with brilliant jewelry, seeming mainly for the wealthy and the Hope Diamond take center stage. Bring in corruption, intrigue, greed and a woman's fight to seek justice for her father's death and her own career and there are many twist and turns on the journey to the end and a satisfying ending! Don't miss this one! I read this via NetGallery and the publisher!
