Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

A thoroughly enjoyable adventure with both historical texture and emotional depth. Anne Perry, New York Times bestselling author on A Fatal Waltz
Alexander's sweetly choreographed plot dances between her wonderfully drawn sleuth, Lady Ashton, and Victorian high society. Julie Spencer-Fleming, Edgar Award finalist and author of All Mortal Flesh on A Poisoned Season
Alexander excels in depicting the social mores of a society uncomfortable with the independence of women, and deftly allows the plot to develop in tandem with Emily's growth. The Baltimore Sun on And Only to Deceive
[Tears of Pearl] will please readers of Anne Perry, Laurie R. King, and Deanna Raybourn seeking a new fan-favorite author. Library Journal on Tears of Pearl
Infused with wit and charm, with just the right amounts of danger, romance and detection blended in. Denver Post on Tears of Pearl
“Author Tasha Alexander is one to watch--and read. . . . despite her cliffhanger climaxes and witty repartee, there's a depth of sensitivity which sets her apart. The Huffington Post on Dangerous to Know
With wisps of darkness, shadows of a ghost story and embers of heightened Freudian themes, Dangerous to Know is the perfect novel to curl up with and chase away the world. Examiner.com
“This long, delightful series…continues with the lush detail, beautiful surrounding, sparkling personalities and the great mystery readers have come to expect. The Victorian details are engaging. Secondary characters are wildly entertaining.” RT Book Reviews (Top Pick)
“This tenth entry in Alexander’s historical series offers important character development, while giving the reader the feeling they’ve also been on holiday on the Riviera—minus the dead bodies. An enjoyable historical murder mystery that will please existing fans, while being very accessible to new readers.”
