Editorial Reviews

Review

"Boyarsky's weightless complications expertly combine menace with bling, making the heroine's adventures both nightmarish and dreamy." -- Kirkus
 
"The second book in the Nicole Graves Mystery series is a fast-paced, roller-coaster mystery filled with corruption at the highest level. Characters are shifty and secretive, yet they are also lovable in their own ways. The plot is filled with twists and turns and red herrings. Boyarsky is a creative author and uses this skill to grab fans and not let go until the last page." --
RT Reviews
 
"A charismatic heroine, suspenseful scenes, and a budding romance make this easy going mystery light enough to take to the beach and engaging enough to keep the reader on their toes, generating excitement for the next installment." --
Foreword Reviews
 
"What a 
roller coaster of a ride! Found myself turning pages late into the night as heroine Nicole Lewis fights for her life (and finds romance) in this gripping story of corruption in the highest echelons of Los Angeles's power elite. Loved it!" --Laura Levine, author of the popular Jaine Austen Mysteries.
 
"
The Bequest is a compelling mystery that has well-developed charactersfast pacing, and a fascinating plot. This is a book that could only be set in Los Angeles, and Boyarsky writes with knowledge and insight about the city's politicians, media, and obsession with glitz and glamour. A great read!" -- Miles Corwin, best-selling author of The Killing Season and Homicide Special
 
"
The Bequest is even better than The Swap,Boyarsky's previous book, which was itself a great read!" -- Charles Rosenberg, Best-selling author of Death on a High Floor

Nancy Boyarsky is the bestselling author of the award-winning Nicole Graves Mysteries.

Reviews compared The Swap to the mysteries of Mary Higgins Clark and praised Nancy for contributing to the "women-driven mystery field with panache" (Foreword Reviews) as well as for their "hold-onto-the-bar roller coaster" plots (RT Book Reviews). Kirkus had special praise for The Bequest, concluding, "Boyarsky's weightless complications expertly combine menace with bling, making the heroine's adventures both nightmarish and dreamy." Her most recent mystery, The Entitled, fifth in the series, received praise from Foreword Reviews for "vibrant street scenes, swift pacing, and Nicole's steely nerve." It was chosen by Apple Books as one of the most anticipated books of the fall.

Before turning to mysteries, Nancy coauthored Backroom Politics, a New York Times notable book, with her husband, Bill Boyarsky. She has written several textbooks on the justice system as well as articles for publications including the Los Angeles Times, Forbes, and McCall’s. She also contributed to political anthologies, including In the Running, about women’s political campaigns. In addition to her writing career, she was communications director for political affairs for ARCO.

The first book in the series, The Swap, won a gold medal Erik Hoffer Book Award. In response to the controversial and incendiary themes explored in the third Nicole Graves mystery, Liar Liar, Nancy Boyarsky was invited to present at the American Library Association Annual Conference in 2018 on "Women-Driven Mysteries in a Post #MeToo World."

Each book of the Nicole Graves mystery series can be read as a stand alone. Readers are invited to connect with Nancy through her website at nancyboyarsky.com.
