Praise for Amanda Flower's Historical Mysteries

"A fresh and engrossing historical mystery with the real-life sister of Orville and Wilbur Wright as its protagonist. Like her famous brothers, Katharine is a woman ahead of her time, intelligent, and keenly observant. Flowers pulled me effortlessly into Katharine's story and kept me turning the pages until the very satisfying end. Looking forward to seeing this series soar!" --Dianne Freeman, author of the award-winning Countess of Harleigh mysteries on To Slip the Bonds of Earth

"Auto-buy author Amanda Flower pens another well-paced, unexpected mystery featuring real-life feminist heroine Katharine Wright as the amateur sleuth, uncovering an exciting part of American history. The nail-biting days around the first successful flight of the Wright Brothers are brought vividly to life in this series starter." --Heather Redmond, author of the Mary Shelley Mysteries on To Slip the Bonds of Earth

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

"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 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
