Praise for Jessica Ellicott's Beryl and Edwina Mysteries

"With its strong sense of place and time in post-World War I England, this will be welcomed by fans of Frances Brody's Kate Shackleton mysteries." --Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW on Murder in an English Village

"A spectacular series launch." --Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW on Murder in an English Village

"Firmly set in the post-WWI era, this historical cozy will appeal to those who enjoy Frances Brody's Kate Shackleton and Kerry Greenwood's Phryne Fisher series." --Booklist on Murder in an English Village

"Very much an English cozy mystery!" --Historical Novel Society on Murder in an English Village

"Ellicott's delightful third whodunit set in post-WWI England...Witty prose, distinctive characters, and an enchanting setting all make for a winner." --Publishers Weekly on Murder Cuts the Mustard

"Captivating...Ellicott smoothly injects such serious issues as the impact of WWI on its survivors and the restrictions of the English class system into a light whodunit." --Publishers Weekly on Murder Flies the Coop

"Edwina and Beryl are flawed but determined women whose quirks and differences make them sympathetic." --Historical Novel Society on Murder Flies the Coop

"[A] heaping helping of period English country charm." --Kirkus Reviews on Murder Cuts the Mustard

"This English cozy is perfect for fans of female detectives and mysteries set in quaint English villages." --Library Journal on Murder Comes to Call

"This is a treat for readers who enjoy following the adventures of disparate yet complementary sleuths." --Publishers Weekly on Murder Comes to Call

"In this clash between conscience and convention, hilarity wins." --Kirkus Reviews on Murder Comes to Call

"Lighthearted...The two women provide a welcome humorous touch as they guide us through their world." --New York Journal of Books on Murder Comes to Call

"Jessica Ellicott takes readers on a fantastic step back through time to a tumultuous post-WWI England where her strong, avant-garde sleuthers both entertain and inform the audience...The pair shines in Ellicott's series, which is also notable for its attention to period dialogue, dress, and mannerisms." --Mystery Scene Magazine on Murder Comes to Call

"Delightful...Ellicott does a good job conveying the fluidity of the British social order after WWI and how the paucity of men opened many opportunities for women. Downton Abbey lovers should be pleased." --Publishers Weekly on Murder in an English Glade

The very British Edwina and the too American Beryl are a wonderfully mismatched pair who will keep you turning pages until they solve the crime." --Victoria Thompson, bestselling author of Murder in the Bowery

"Absolutely delightful. Readers will fall in love with this intrepid new pair of sleuths as they sniff out the secrets hiding just beneath the surface of even the most unassuming English village." --Anna Lee Huber, bestselling author of the Lady Darby Mysteries
