A fearless and spirited pilot conquers Hollywood. Now can she survive movie stardom?

In 1945 Velva Jean Hart is a bona fide war heroine. After a newsreel film of her triumphant return to America, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer promises to make her a star. They give her a new life story and a brand-new name. As “Kit Rogers,” she navigates the movie sets, recording sessions, parties, staged romances, and occasional backstabbing that accompany her newfound fame. She also navigates real-life romance, finding herself caught between a charismatic young writer and a sexy and enigmatic musician from her past. But when one of her best friends dies mysteriously and the most powerful studio in the world launches a cover-up, Velva Jean goes in search of the truth—risking her own life, as well as her heart, in the process.

Set during Hollywood’s golden age and peopled with a cast of unforgettable characters, American Blonde will mesmerize readers of The Chaperone as well as fans of the Velva Jean series.

Quotes & Awards

  • “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 EigNew 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.”
