Champagne Haze: Historical Fiction set in 1927 Paris Paperback – June 8, 2009
Elegance, class and style abound
Just as he masterfully describes the imagery of architecture, scenery and the era of Russian Czars in Crimson Snow, so likewise he captured my interest in Champagne Haze.
Historical Novel Society
Champagne Haze provides a fascinating nostalgic look at members of "the lost generation."

From the Author
Worthy Reader! Why did I write CHAMPAGNE HAZE? Blame my Mother. She worked as a housekeeper for a wealthy but aging socialite who possessed a striking resemblance to the late Grace Kelly. Her name was Marilyn Obolensky but I called her Mrs. O. To me, Mrs. O always reminded me of the sad Miss Havisham figure out of Charles Dickens's Great Expectations.
Jilted by time and a lost love, the widow passed her days in her grand but decaying Grosse Pointe Farm home gazing up at a life-size portrait of her dead husband a Russian noble named Prince Serge Obolensky. Prince Serge wore his imperial Russian uniform well; tall, pencil-thin, he radiated such confidence.
Seeing it, I often asked myself what went so wrong in Russia that poor old Serge ended up in a room full of dust. The answer, in part, is CHAMPAGNE HAZE.

Gwen and Serge were my favorite characters, but I must admit I was enthralled by Grekov who leads a very interesting life. The characters in themselves are worth the read and you will find the ending a bit surprising. Fun to read and I can assure you won't want to put the book down once you start reading it!
