Reviews

Deliciously complex, immensely readable, & completely un-put-down-able. If you’re looking for an intelligently written and skillfully crafted historical mystery look no further than Deadly Peril. I promise you won’t regret it. —Caz Owens All About Romance, rated a DESERT ISLE KEEPER

My first encounter with her work was mere months ago, and I’ve now read all her full-length books. Every one is worthy of five stars, but I think Deadly Peril is possibly the best yet. It is, quite simply, a perfect combination of mystery, romance, and history. — Lady Wesley Romantic Historical Reviews, rated 5 STARS
