Starred School Library Journal review
From Booklist: "An engaging historical novel, with an unusual, vividly realized setting."
From the Bulletin for Children's Books: "It's effective and memorable...the bleak, soul crushing terror of being surrounded by folks who don't believe your trauma exists is the truest horror Stolarz explores."
“Newman fills her quirky collection with moments of connection as protagonists grapple with loss and longing. With candor, wry wit and memorable details, these stories shimmer.” – Publisher’s Weekly
A Starred Review in the Foreword Review
"Jaxon balances family drama and seasonal joy in her fast-paced fifth Widows Club Regency romance…Jaxon keeps the pages flying by highlighting just how high-stakes marriage and courtship were for Regency-era women. Maria’s plight is sure to resonate with historical romance fans.”– Publishers Weekly
“Hugh is a very appealing hero, and Maria’s friendships with the other widows light up this warm holiday romance with its many surprising turns.” – Booklist
"Smith's first-rate police procedural provides plenty of likely suspects and a clever detective." –Kirkus Reviews
"Forgotten City, Carrie Smith’s gripping follow-up to Silent City, pits the unrelenting detective against a cast of diverse New Yorkers driven by their desires and ambitions and haunted by their pasts. But can she piece together the truth before the murderer kills again?" –Good Reads
"Although the women in each novel are connected, it is not necessary to read them all or even to read them in order. Each book stands on its own. But once you read one, I’m guessing you’ll want to read them all." Read full interview here.
