"A joyful thing to behold. Set in Victorian England, this mystery gleefully overturns sexist norms and celebrates independent women of intellect, with Myrtle Hardcastle leading the charge."
—Booklist, starred review
"Humor and wit make the narrative sparkle, and, happily, Myrtle is as irrepressible as ever.”
EMLA will be closed from Dec. 23 through the New Year's weekend so Joan and I can relax, enjoy our families and friends, and read read read! (We might also be preparing a New Year's surprise for the agency, but shhh, don't tell.) We hope the rest of 2010 is warm and bright for all our clients, editors, colleagues, readers, and all, and we look forward to many happy things to come in 2011!
