The Magnolia Palace

BOOK ∙ 2022

Fiona Davis

Two savvy women separated by 50 years ponder the same curious questions in Fiona Davis’ richly detailed historical mystery. In 1919, down-on-her-luck model Lillian Carter gets a job as a private secretary for demanding socialite Helen Frick. Working in Helen’s Upper East Side mansion proves challenging, especially when the wealthy woman’s priceless diamond goes missing. Fifty years later, when Swinging ‘60s fashion model Veronica Weber ends up locked in that same mansion-turned-museum with its handsome young curator, she uncovers clues about the missing jewel…and a possible murder. With her customary lush prose, historical-fiction queen Fiona Davis immerses us in the over-the-top glamour of Art Deco New York. We especially loved Davis’ detailed descriptions of the incomparable art collection that helped found the real-life Frick Museum. A thriller, a romance, and a luscious trip back in time, The Magnolia Palace is an exciting novel that has it all.
