Praise for Dangerous and Unseemly, book 1 of the Concordia Wells Mysteries and winner of Library Journal's "Best Mystery of 2015: SELF-e"
"Concordia Wells will delight fans of Laurie R. King's 'Mary Russell' or Charles Todd's 'Bess Crawford' series, and similarly to those works, the book contains many subplots just as compelling as the primary mystery. A fun historical whodunit with a delightful background of the early days of women's collegiate education." ~Library Journal --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

KB Owen knows her 19th c. American history and has crafted an engaging cozy thriller. I loved the period details. Did you know, for instance, that at late-19th c. women's colleges, they could play basketball in bloomers but they couldn't perform Shakespeare in men's clothing?
Period authors often give their heroines unrealistically modern sensibilities. But Concordia Wells comes across as a real woman passionately engaged in the tumultuous changes that led to women's suffrage. She's thankfully not "spunky," but curious, thoughtful, and brave.
The murder mystery itself is well-plotted, gives nothing away too soon, and comes to a satisfying conclusion. The subplot involving Concordia's sister is thoughtful and harrowing. The "romantic interests" had me wondering...who's the good guy, who's the bad guy?
If you like mysteries that sweep you into another era and keep you wondering whodunit, you'll love 'Dangerous and Unseemly.'
While the school staff is trying to figure out what has happened to suspected missing funds, the school's financial officer is found to have committed suicide. Concordia is engrossed in her classes and the students' dramatic pranks but her newly married sister is seriously ill, taking Concordia away from school for days at a time. But her imagination and mind are drawing her into the mysteries at the college. She finds help from a strange detective source at the school. She also gets herself into dangerous, nearly deadly situations, as the mysteries get solved.
I highly recommend this series to all history cozy lovers. Concordia is a great new character! The facts and literary quotes make great additions to the mystery. Great start to this new series!
