MEDIA REVIEWS
Ms. Swee has created a formidable heroine in Abigail, who has both the courage and the intelligence to pursue her investigation to its locial ends. She is one of the most attractive and enterprising detectives to date in the genre of historical mysteries. * The Dallas Morning News *
Engaging first novel...[that] should draw an army of historical mystery fans...Promises to be a fine series. * Publishers Weekly *
Entertaining...Swee evokes the bitterness of a Northern winter during a time of great turmoil and danger when everyone is suspect and conflicting loyalties can turn a world upside down. A very credible debut. * The Tampa Tribune *
Deft..Solid work in a debut better than the cutesy title suggests. * Booklist *
The solution is staisfying, the chracters interesting, and the intrigue-laced lot...is wekk conceived. * Home News Tribune *
A fine, tense portrait of the times...[with] an appealing, intelligent heroine. * Portsmouth Herald Sunday *
Authentically detailed whodunit [and] feisty heroine. * Lima News *
The details and manners are accurate...Thos of us who love this period rejoice that an author chooses it for a good mystery. * Historical Novel Society *
This is an impressive debut. An imaginative plot, compelling central character, and lucid prose should place it in the top ranks of the year's best historical mysteries.
