Praise for the Edgar(R) Award-Winning Myrtle Hardcastle Mysteries:

"Another thrilling mystery from our young Victorian sleuth... Enthusiastically, chaotically delightful." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review (In Myrtle Peril)

"Comical footnotes pepper the text, adding wit to prose which is already dryly funny. Clues abound, giving astute readers the chance to solve the mystery along with Myrtle. Another excellent whodunit with a charming, snarky sleuth." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review (Cold-Blooded Myrtle)

"[How to Get Away with Myrtle] will delight young Sherlock Holmes aficionados. This deeply plotted sequel is an additional purchase for collections serving the most precocious readers who long for a fast-paced mystery where women shine." --School Library Journal (How to Get Away with Myrtle)

"A joyful thing to behold. Set in Victorian England, this mystery gleefully overturns sexist norms and celebrates independent women of intellect, with Myrtle Hardcastle leading the charge." --Booklist, starred review (Premeditated Myrtle)
