About the Author

Francine Mathews has spent part of fifty summers on Cape Cod and Nantucket. She attended Princeton and Stanford Universities, where she studied history, before going on to work as an intelligence analyst at the CIA. She wrote her first book in 1992 and left the Agency a year later. Since then, she has written twenty-seven books, including four previous novels in the Merry Folger series (Death in the Off-Season, Death in Rough Water, Death in a Mood Indigo, Death in a Cold Hard Light, and Death on Nantucket) as well as the nationally bestselling Being a Jane Austen mystery series, which she writes under the pen name Stephanie Barron. She lives and works in Denver, Colorado.


Praise for Death on Tuckernuck

"A mystery that's so suspenseful it's hard not to skip a chapter to see if certain deeply likable characters are still alive . . . The novel lives and breathes New England island life, with a plot brimming with the best kinds of rude surprises."
--The Washington Post

"A wedding, a hurricane, and a murder combine in a breathtaking mélange . . . An exhilarating, page-turning blend of mystery, detection, romance, and people-versus-the-elements."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Gripping . . . Readers will keep turning the pages to see what happens next. Mathews once again displays her storytelling powers."
--Publishers Weekly

"Nature's fury and the frantic, batten-down-the-hatches scramble to protect man and beast make for gloriously tense reading . . . the race against the clock is thrilling, and the remote island setting, where everyone knows their neighbors and police must do without state-of-the-art crime labs, makes the title a good fit for fans of rural or small-town police procedurals."

"A striking page-turner . . . Mathews is a gifted storyteller, able to keep both storylines pumping with adrenaline and shreds of hope."
--Kingdom Books

Praise for the Merry Folger Nantucket mysteries

"Wonderful . . . Nantucket and its impenetrable fog and characters come to life."
--Diane Mott Davidson

"What a treat to have a new addition to one of my very favorite series! Francine Mathews's prose is elegant, her heroine appealing, her setting vivid, and her characters shine. For mystery lovers, the Merry Folger books hit every note."
--Deborah Crombie, New York Times bestselling author of Garden of Lamentations

"An admirable, well-written series, with Folger evolving into an ever more complex character as love and loyalty collide with her professional pride and ethics."
--The Orlando Sentinel

"​Mathews is a story teller, and she has a fine sense of time and place. Her descriptions of Nantucket make you taste the salt air, and the drawl of the long-time residents puts you on the island​."​
--The Denver Post ​
