"Because I Could Not Stop for Death is USA Today bestselling author Amanda Flower's first foray into historical mystery, and she acquits herself beautifully. She brings beloved American poet Emily Dickinson to life in a nuanced portrayal, giving us glimpses of the brilliant literary mind at work, turning over ideas and phrases, even as she teams up with an able and sympathetic maid to solve a murder. Well-researched, richly textured, and skillfully plotted, readers will fall for Flower's lyrical mystery--word, verse, and stanza." -Anna Lee Huber, USA Today bestselling author of A Perilous Perspective

"Amanda Flower captures the culture of mid-19th century American society in the absorbing and well-written Because I Could Not Stop For Death. Flower adds her plotting and pacing skill to make this book hard to put down."- Charles Todd, New York Times bestselling author of A Game of Fear

"A fascinating glimpse into the life of beloved poet Emily Dickinson as she and her maid solve a murder together. You will be delighted by this clever premise set in a little-explored historical time period."--Victoria Thompson, USA Today bestselling author of Murder on Madison Square

"Historical context adds excitement to the twin mysteries of murder and the poet's hidden life."-Kirkus

"Amanda Flower does an exemplary job of extrapolating from the real Ms. Dickinson's life to construct a clever, socially-conscious historical mystery...It is a superlative effort, and entertaining to boot."-Criminal Element

"[A] sprightly series launch...a good start to what could be a rich historical series."--Publishers Weekly
