"Entertaining . . . composed of large dollops of romance and a soupçon of mystery, this confection will appeal!" --Publishers Weekly Praise for A Girl Like You: "Michelle Cox masterfully recreates 1930s Chicago, bringing to life its diverse neighborhoods and eclectic residents, as well as its seedy side. Henrietta and Inspector Howard are the best pair of sleuths I've come across in ages--Cox makes us care not just about the case, but about her characters. A fantastic start to what is sure to be a long-running series." --Tasha Alexander, New York Times best-selling author of The Adventuress
"Fans of spunky, historical heroines will love Henrietta Von Harmon." --Booklist starred review

"There's a lot to love about the bloodhound couple at the center of this cozy mystery." --Foreword Reviews
