Editorial Reviews

Review

An enjoyable murder mystery with engaging characters, nicely observed historical detail and gentle humour. * Tracey Warr, Historical Novel Review * A welcome addition to the genre... I know if the next book in the series had been published I would be reading that now. I'll have to look forward to it but in the meantime, I thoroughly recommend this to all * hairpastafreckle72.blogspot.co.uk * A gripping, atmospheric page turner... The plot itself is extremely clever...The Body on the Doorstep is fresh and exciting in addition to being skilfully written. * The Bookbag * An enjoyable murder mystery with engaging characters, nicely observed historical detail and gentle humour * Historical Novel Review * This is an enjoyable read, lots of interesting historical detail, engaging characters and plenty of twists to the plot. There is definitely potential for a series based on these characters and setting, I would like to read more * A Good Read Blog * This is a most impressive debut from a new writing team. The setting pre-dates most of the war between England and France, i.e.. pre-Bonaparte, but is beautifully realised with lots of understanding of both the politics and everyday life. The plot is cleverly put together with differing explanations and characters and motives that may or may not be true. All in all a terrific book and I want to read more! * Plucked Highbrow * A clever and gripping atmospheric page turner, with engaging and believable characters, plenty of twists and turns, nicely observed historical detail and touches of gentle humour...The characterisation throughout is superb. The artist JMW Turner makes an interesting and sympathetic appearance and even the minor players appear authentic and individual. The background is impeccably presented and the pace picks up as the story progresses. If the showdown owes more to Christie than Le Carre it is nonetheless in keeping with the overall tone of a quite brilliant and traditional period novel * Crime Review Book Blog * Richly atmospheric and wonderfully written, with just the right proportions of domestic and national politics, murder and polite conversation. The ending put me on the edge of my seat. * For winter nights - A bookish blog * The Body in the Ice is an intriguing murder mystery full of twists and turns that kept me turning pages, wondering what happens next. This series will appeal greatly to fans of both historical fiction and mysteries, and I highly recommend it. I'll be looking forward to further installments. * Novel Pastimes * This was an enjoyable and clever storyline, slow suspense with twists and shocks and surprises with great characters, lots of historical detail and even a dog called Rodolpho that was one of the stars of the story. I can't wait for the next mystery with the Hardcastle and Chaytor duo. * Carole's Books * It was a pleasure reading a crime novel that had almost everything; authentic and fascinating characters, a clear writing style that carried me along, a strong plot with a credible and extremely satisfying climax and resolution and a superbly evoked setting of time and place. * Promoting Crime *
