Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Jennifer Niven is a stunning talent. Like Elmore Leonard, she’s such a sneaky good writer that you might not notice what she’s up to. On one level, American Blonde is a crackling thriller that will keep you up all night until the pieces of the plot come together. At the same time, it’s an elegantly written, impressively researched novel that makes idealism, heroism, and a romantic era come to life. Either way, it’s a total knockout.” Jonathan Eig, New York Times bestselling author
“Returning home a hero after her exploits as a WASP during WWII, gutsy Velva Jean Hart is ready for her next adventure…Fans will relish this latest installment in the adventures of Velva Jean.” Booklist
