About this deal

These papers aren't just any old papers though; she realizes that they are old scavenger hunt clues, which she thinks may provide the location of the missing pink diamond once owned by Henry Frick. Veronica had stumbled upon the clues as she was fumbling her way around in the dark, slipped, and saw pages sticking out of organ pipes. Mother always said Lillian had marvelous luck, from being plucked from the chorus line to becoming muse to the greatest artists of this century.

FIONA DAVIS is the New York Times bestselling author of seven historical fiction novels set in iconic New York City buildings, including THE SPECTACULAR, THE MAGNOLIA PALACE, THE ADDRESS, and THE LIONS OF FIFTH AVENUE, which was a Good Morning America book club pick. Inside the apartment, the soup roiling in her gut, she filled a glass with water and sat down at the tiny table in the kitchen. College intern and budding art curator Joshua Lawrence has also been locked inside with Veronica and to pass the time they start a scavenger hunt.I was so caught up in this Old Hollywood feel, never before thinking about sculptures revealing their own legacy of people and their past. While the statues are praised, the beautiful Lillian is judged negatively, as the model who poses partially nude to create them.

I always enjoy books by Fiona Davis as I learn about NYC’s historic landmarks while reading a well written historical fiction. Many thanks to Dutton / Penguin Group, NetGalley and the author for the opportunity to read this engaging book prior to its January 25, 2022 publication date. She brilliantly embraced the history of the Frick and portrayed it as another character in her novel as she revealed its charm, secrets and extravagance throughout its pages.The Magnolia Palace was an enjoyable read and gave me the opportunity to learn about the Frick family.
