Find this and other reviews at flashlightcommentary NOTE This review contains spoilers Please take heed and proceed at your own risk.I often refer to myself as a cover slut so what I m about to admit may come as something of a shock, but I hate the artwork on Deeanne Gist s Tiffany Girl The dress is entirely unsuitable for the Flossie s occupation, she works on windows not lamps, and the model s pose is laughable to say the least The Gibson Girl bouffant isn t bad, but nothing about this jacket [...]

    4. larmstrong73With this book, Ms Gist is officially one of my favorite authors One that I will wait impatiently for and preorder books months before they re released This was not luck this was not lightning striking twice This was carefully researched, lovingly crafted Though it saddens me that I can only expect one of her brilliant novels per year, as this book points out, quality is worth waiting for.In my opinion, there is a large gap between the style of books that she used to write and the on [...]

In 1892, as the World Fair was coming to Chicago, Tiffany as in glass, not diamonds was preparing to enter gorgeous, stained glass windows and other displays The men were on strike, so Mr Tiffany decided to hire women, for the first time in history These women endured mistreatment, groping, being spit at and a number of other atrocities They were not considered women of good repute if they had jobs, so men figured that they didn t have to treat them as ladies.Much to her parents dismay, Flossie [...]

This my first historical fiction This isn t the first time I am reading something historical, it is just that the other have had magic, a supernatural element, or has been a straight up biography This story begins in 1892, with the main character Flossie being told that her parents couldn t afford for her to continue going to the art institution Her mother is a seamstress to the rich families of New York and her father is a barber Money has been tight since her father has started using their wag [...]

    14. 3.5 stars Good I admit, I had my qualms about reading any new Deeanne Gist novels after It Happened at the Fair felt so laughably below par compared to the Bethany House published novels that launched Dee s career I also admit that I skipped Fair Play for that very reason But this premise about women working for Tiffany Glass was just too compelling for a history nerd like me to ignore So, with not a little fear and trembling, I dove into Tiffany Girl And now, 86 chapters no, that s not a typo l [...]

    15. I totally enjoyed this book I was very drawn into the characters, especially Flossie the main character, but the historical info was also very engaging I really liked that Flossie was determined to move out of her parent s home and out on her own, so that she could be in control of the money she earned ,instead of handing it over to her father, who had taken to gambling I enjoyed the info about the world s fair, and the Tiffany Glass company, and the social norms of that era.The romance for Flos [...]

    16. TIFFANY GIRL is Ms Gist s newest historical romance I love her historicals, but the last book of hers I read went over the top in titillating ways I heard she was going ABA and I thought probably I wouldn t read her books any since I try to stick to strictly CBA books When TIFFANY GIRL came available from a publisher I know and trust, I opted to review it I have read other reviews about this book and some have complained about certain scenes, but they didn t bother me in this book Yes, sexual t [...]

    20. From the moment I reached the end of the prologue, I knew this was going to be an extraordinary read Even though it clocks in at 500 pages, Tiffany Girl absolutely flew by for me Though set during the 1893 World s Fair in Chicago, most of the action in this book takes place in New York.Flossie Jayne lives at home with her parents and follows her passion of studying art However, when money for her art lessons runs out, Flossie scandalizes her traditional parents by taking a job in Louis Tiffany s [...]

I think that Deeanne Gist s books keep getting better and better, and I loved this story of Flossie Jayne, who became a Tiffany Girl I didn t know anything about the Tiffany Girls, so this book was very interesting and eye opening for me I enjoyed the storyline that revolved around Flossie being one of these glass working girls, and I really liked her character The book had plenty of other good characters, and Reeve was the best of these He made a great love interest for the intrepid Flossie Tha [...]

What an engaging read I have long enjoyed Deeanne Gist books although I didn t love It Happened At The Fair It really did capture my attention for the entire book It had a wonderful depth that I did not expect The characters were very well rounded and both main characters seemed to undergo a transformation The history was seamlessly intertwined within the story and did not detract from the story line at all Very much recommended

    26. Although this is a historical romance set in 1893 New York City, there is also a lot of historical fiction as well In fact, I d say a good portion of the very long book highlights what life was like working for Tiffany Glass company as a New Woman at the end of the 19th Century Flossie Jayne didn t mean to become a new liberated woman the opportunity presented itself and she took it She moved out of her parents house and moved into a boarding house so that she could be closer to work and not hav [...]

    28. I really enjoyed this story a lot The Tiffany stuff is interesting but by far my favorite parts of the story revolved around the boardinghouse I would love to see historical romances utilize this setting I loved that the heroine never fell into a Mary Sue trap in other words, not everything she touches turns to gold and I really liked how both the hero and heroine grew up over the course of the story The slow build of their romance is great, and I loved how much tension and chemistry the author [...]
