Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Delaney glides between scenes with ease. She uses a bare-bones style, without literary flash, to achieve artistry as sturdy and restrained as a Shaker chair. Warmth and menace, past and present, are nicely balanced, with a denouement that’s equally plausible and startling. This confident performance is sure to win new fans to the series.” Publishers Weekly (starred review) 
“Delany…has created two interesting protagonists in Molly and Winters.” Kirkus Reviews, praise for the author
“Delany effectively combines a cozy tone and a picturesque setting with plenty of action and procedural detail.” Booklist
