"Brody's third in the series (A Medal for Murder, 2013, etc.) is a perfect fit for lovers of classic British mysteries who'd like to watch a clever, introspective, delightful heroine solve a tricky puzzle."
"Kasasian's debut is an unflinching look at the darker side of Victorian London and a portrait of a heroine strong enough to stand up to a thoroughly disagreeable detective. Clever plotting, morbid humor and colorful characters are a greater treat for the mind than the heart—or the stomach."
A Victorian detective solves a mystery but meets his match in his independent-minded young ward.

"A pleasant addition to Ferris' long string of needlework whodunits (And Then You Die, 2012, etc.) featuring the ebullient Betsy, her gay assistant and her live-in boyfriend. This one is full of needlework lore but doesn't feature much of a mystery."
