Praise for Viviana Valentine Gets Her Man
"[A] sprightly debut . . . Edwards writes with flair."
--The New York Times

"A snappy valentine to a bygone era . . . [with] a raft of twists and complications."
--Kirkus Reviews

"A solid debut . . . For fans of hardboiled PIs with hearts of gold."
--Library Journal

"Edwards nails the tone, with dialogue and milieu evocative of classic noir."

"A delightful historical treat . . . Charming with headstrong women, suspense, humor, and plenty of twists."
--Portland Book Review, 5-star review

"[An] old-fashioned New York gumshoe detective novel, but brought up to date and given a very feminine spin . . . A pleasure to read."
--Historical Novel Society

"A riveting, pulse-pounding, compulsive page turner of a novel."
--Midwest Book Review

"Everything a novel needs to have, a strong female character, a gumshoe P.I., a great setting in New York City, fun story, and strong supporting characters."
--Red Carpet Crash

"A must read for fans of historical cozies."
--Gumshoe Reviews

"It's the steamy NYC summer of 1950, and Viviana's boss is awol, there are unpaid bills, a tricky case, and an unconscious galoot on the office floor. She steps over the broken glass, touches up her lipstick and gets to work. A delightful PI romp that takes you back to when men were men, and girls wore strappy espadrilles and the perfect sundress and didn't take crap from anyone. Viviana Valentine is a keeper. Can't wait to read the next one in the series!"
--Iona Whishaw, award-winning and bestselling author of the Lane Winslow series

"Edwards' clever, highly enjoyable debut is a love letter to the old-school private eye, starring a street-smart secretary who finds herself suddenly tasked with solving the cases of New York's rich and famous. With a stellar cast of supporting characters and a 1950s setting that drips with life, Viviana Valentine Gets Her Man unfolds a fun, twisty mystery before sticking the landing for a satisfying final reveal. This firecracker of a series opener will leave readers ready for more Viv!"
--Allison Epstein, author of A Tip for the Hangman
