"A delightful cocktail that mixes elements of the Bridgerton series, Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice and Agatha Christie's Miss Marple mysteries . . . the payoff is a wealth of wit, hilarity and suspense."--People Magazine

"Without exaggerating, it's one of the funniest cozy mysteries I've ever read."--Bookriot, "15 of the Best Cozy Mysteries Coming Out in the Second Half of 2023"

"A Most Agreeable Murder begins as social satire and ascends into deadly knockabout farce. . . . There are dotty eccentrics, secret passageways, false identities, a rumored ghost, three acts' worth of delicious banter--and an irrepressible heroine born from the ashes of her own trial by fire."--The Wall Street Journal

"An utterly delightful murder mystery, A Most Agreeable Murder reads as if a giggly Jane Austen dipped her pen in blood. (Not too much blood, mind you; it's all quite decorous.) I loved every page of this very silly romp."--Seattle Times

"A delightfully entertaining debut that kept me engrossed from the beginning right through to the satisfying end . . . Witty and clever, it's like something Agatha Christie and Jane Austen might have created were they able to collaborate, only with its own wonderfully unique spark. Be prepared to laugh out loud at the comedy, gasp at the murder mystery, and have a thoroughly great time!"--India Holton, author of The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels

"I adored this: a comedy of manners meets murder mystery, just as thrilling as it is gorgeous."--Sophie Irwin, author of A Lady's Guide to Fortune Hunting

"The book is an entertaining and witty tale that combines elements of Jane Austen's world with the intrigue of an Agatha Christie mystery. . . . Readers can expect a delightful blend of comedy, suspense, and the pursuit of justice. . . . [Seales] leads readers on a thrilling adventure filled with twists and turns that will keep them guessing until the very end."--Blogarama

"Absurdly entertaining, with twist upon twist upon twist, A Most Agreeable Murder is a most agreeable read! Jane Austen fans will appreciate the insightful observations as well as the wry humor that pokes fun at certain well-known characters and tropes."--Mia P. Manansala, author of Arsenic and Adobo

"An utter delight . . . a fast-paced mix of marriage plot and manor-house murder mystery with something for everyone: a scintillating romance, an intricate puzzle to solve, and layers of snarky, pointed wit that would make Austen proud. I snorted and swooned my way through this book in record speed--it's some of the most fun I've had reading all year. Cozy mystery fans, this is a must."--Ashley Winstead, author of The Last Housewife

"Irreverent, satirical, and oh so much fun!"--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"[An] exceptional debut . . . The intricate plot races along at a sprightly pace, and Seales delights with her sharp humor and accomplished sense of narrative control. Jane Austen fans will be enthralled."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
