In M.J. Rose’s latest novel, CARTIER’S HOPE (SimonandSchuster), it’s New York, 1910: A city of extravagant balls in Fifth Avenue mansions and poor immigrants crammed into crumbling Lower East Side tenements. A city where the suffrage movement is growing stronger every day, but most women reporters are still delegated to the fashion and lifestyle pages. But Vera Garland is set on making her mark in a man’s world of serious journalism.

Shortly after the world-famous Hope Diamond is acquired for a record sum, Vera begins investigating rumors about schemes by its new owner, jeweler Pierre Cartier, to manipulate its value. Vera is determined to find the truth behind the notorious diamond and its legendary curses—even better when the expose puts her in the same orbit as a magazine publisher whose blackmailing schemes led to the death of her beloved father.

Appealing to a young Russian jeweler for help, Vera is unprepared when she begins falling in love with him…and even more unprepared when she gets caught up in his deceptions and finds herself at risk of losing all she has worked so hard to achieve.

Set against the backdrop of New York’s glitter and grit, of ruthless men and the atrocities they commit in the pursuit of power, this enthralling historical novel explores our very human needs for love, retribution—and to pursue one’s destiny, regardless of the cost.


New York Times, USAToday, and Wall St. Journal bestseller, M.J. Rose grew up in New York City mostly in the labyrinthine galleries of the Metropolitan Museum, the dark tunnels and lush gardens of Central Park and reading her mother’s favorite books before she was allowed. She believes mystery and magic are all around us but we are too often too busy to notice… books that exaggerate mystery and magic draw attention to it and remind us to look for it and revel in it.

Her most recent novel TIFFANY BLUES (Atria/S&S) was chosen as an Indie Next Pick and takes place during the Jazz age at Louis Comfort Tiffany’s Long Island mansion/ art colony.

Rose’s work has appeared in many magazines including Oprah Magazine and she has been featured in the New York Times, Newsweek, WSJ, Time, USA Today and on the Today Show, and NPR radio. Rose graduated from Syracuse University, spent the ’80s in advertising, has a commercial in the Museum of Modern Art in NYC and since 2005 has run the first marketing company for authors – Rose is also the co-founder, with Liz Berry, of

The television series PAST LIFE, was based on Rose’s novels in the Reincarnationist series. She is one of the founding board members of International Thriller Writers.

  1. I’m a historical fiction addict. All The Things We Cannot Say by Kelly Rimmer tops my list. The Lost Wife by Alyson Richman was the book that turned me into a reader. And When We Meet Again by Kristin Harmel is my most recent great one. Rumor has it Kristy Woodson Harvey is coming out with her first historical fiction in 2021 and I’ll be first in line for that.


  2. The Paris Library by Janet Skeslien Charles. It wasn’t my favorite but it was the last one I read.


  3. I haven’t read a historical novel lately that I can recall. Closest would be Recipes for a Perfect Wife by Karma Brown that goes back and forth between past and present.


  4. The Storm Over Paris, The House at Tyneford, All That I Am, and many more. Historical fiction is my favorite novels since they are profound, fascinating and unforgettable. M.J. Rose writes such wonderful books.


  5. My latest historical fiction read that I finished last night-Dream When You’re Feeling Blue-Elizabeth Berg. Yet another winner from an amazing author. I would love to read Cartier’s Hope.


  6. I’ve read many wonderful historical fiction books but my favorite still is All the Light We Cannot See, followed closely by The Nightingale. Thanks for this giveaway chance. Stay safe and healthy. 💕📚😷📚💕


  7. This time period in history is one of my favorites. This story is intriguing.
    Currently reading Beneath a Scarlet Sky.
