Rules of Civility, by Amor Towles

1938, Manhattan.  A cool time and place to write a book about.  Two young women, who share a room in a boarding house, meet a young banker in a jazz bar and their lives change forever.  Kate, the granddaughter of immigrants, has brains, ambition, and drive.  Eve, from a well-to-do Indiana family, wants a life bigger than Indiana can offer.  Tinker has a good heart, sense of responsibility and secrets.  I know a few people I should send Washington's Rules of Civility to.
