GIVEAWAY: Tiffany Girl

GIVEAWAY: Tiffany Girl

This is the last week in my month of giveaways in celebration of my birthday and I've had such a blast sharing these books with you! Thank you to everyone who's entered and hello to all my new readers following along, I'm so glad you're here! Without any further ado I bring you this week's giveaway....

An impulsive heroine, the literal boy next door, and loads of fascinating historical details all come together in Deeanne Gist's Tiffany Girl!

Last summer I had the privilege of interning with Dee as a Social Media Assistant, and she is just as sweet and spunky as the heroines in her novels! Her books are always incredibly well-researched and she writes characters like no one else I know. After seeing all the work that goes into her books, and the heart behind her writing I have so much respect for her, not only as an author, but as a person.  Her latest book, Tiffany Girl, released last May and I'm so excited to get to share it with one lucky reader!

Here's what you have to look forward to:
As preparations for the 1893 World’s Fair set Chicago and the nation on fire, Louis Tiffany—heir to the exclusive Fifth Avenue jewelry empire—seizes the opportunity to unveil his state-of-the-art, stained glass, mosaic chapel, the likes of which the world has never seen.
But when Louis’s dream is threatened by a glassworkers’ strike months before the Fair opens, he turns to an unforeseen source for help: the female students at the Art Students League of New York. Eager for adventure, the young women pick up their skirts, move to boarding houses, take up steel cutters, and assume new identities as the “Tiffany Girls.”

Tiffany Girl is the heartwarming story of the impetuous Flossie Jayne, a beautiful, budding artist who is handpicked by Louis to help complete the Tiffany chapel. Though excited to live in a boarding house when most women stayed home, she quickly finds the world is less welcoming than anticipated. From a Casanova male, to an unconventional married couple, and a condescending singing master, she takes on a colorful cast of characters to transform the boarding house into a home while racing to complete the Tiffany chapel and make a name for herself in the art world.
As challenges mount, her ambitions become threatened from an unexpected quarter: her own heart. Who will claim victory? Her dreams or the captivating boarder next door?

I love when authors give you a behind the scenes glimpse of their writing process, and Deeanne was the first author I knew who did that. Check out this post to see which celebrities inspired the characters in each of her novels, and this video gives a fun peek into her glamorous life as an author!

The giveaway runs from now until May 31st at midnight! One random winner will be drawn and announced next week on the blog. Thanks so much to everyone who has participated in my month of giveaways!
