About the Author

Always in the mood for a good scare, B. R. MYERS spent most of her teen years behind the covers of Lois Duncan, Ray Bradbury, and Stephen King. She is the author of the international bestseller, A Dreadful Splendor, winner of the Mary Higgins Clark Award, as well as numerous YA books. When not putting her characters in precarious situations, B. R. Myers works as a registered nurse. A member of the Writers' Federation of Nova Scotia, she lives in Halifax with her family--and there is still a stack of books on her bedside table.

Reviews

"A spooky gothic romance with impeccable vibes. I loved this!" -- Erin Sterling, New York Times bestselling author of The Ex Hex and The Kiss Curse

"A Dreadful Splendor is a delightful mix of gothic, mystery, and romance. Con artist heroine Genevieve is a memorable addition to literature's gallery of charming rogues. I had such fun reading this book." -- Gwenda Bond, New York Times bestselling author of Not Your Average Hot Guy

"This gem of a book sparkles with wit and originality. . . . There is no shortage of tricks and feints in this excellent novel and Genevieve is a delightful character."
-- The Globe and Mail

"An intriguing whodunit . . . Myers nicely couples an unlikely and unethical sleuth with an atmospheric puzzle. Fans of roguish investigators will be delighted." -- Publishers Weekly

"Remember Penny Dreadful with Eva Green? Me too, and this book promises to fill the Victorian-era-séance-shaped void the show left in my heart. It's also bound to satisfy fans of other amateur Victorian sleuths, like in A Curious Beginning, with the added bonus of Genevieve's roguish ways -- which obviously only make the journey more fun." -- Book Riot, The Best Books Out this Week

"A perfectly splendid novel . . . It can be easily read and relished by anyone ages twelve and up, as it is devoid of both crude language and explicit sex scenes. It is an attention grabbing, vividly imagined, suspenseful Victorian gothic mystery romance which this reader found impossible to put down! . . . The writing is fresh, original, full of surprises and features a captivating heroine in Genevieve Timmons. It's a gem!" -- Booktrib

"A page-turner . . . combining mystery, romance and spiritualism in a Victorian London setting full of secrets and seances."
-- Saltwire (Halifax, Canada)

"Breathtaking, puzzling and spine-chilling all at once. A spectacular, haunting mystery with a touch of romance and twists galore. Absolutely brilliant!" -- T.A. Willberg, author of the Marion Lane Mysteries

"Thrilling, atmospheric and propulsive, with healthy doses of heart and humor thrown in for good measure, A Dreadful Splendor is a cleverly crafted mystery with an irrepressible heroine you won't soon forget. I can't remember the last time I had this much fun reading a book!" -- Tom Ryan, International Thriller Award-winning author of Keep This to Yourself

"Delicious double crosses, a haunted estate, and a heroine who might just lose her heart -- if she can keep her neck out of the hangman's noose. A Dreadful Splendor will keep readers guessing." -- Kathleen Peacock, author of You Were Never Here
