★★★★★   The Roaring 20’s can be murder, 2 July 2014

“A fun mystery sent in 1921 in England with Posie Parker (or Nosy as she is called by one friend) a Private Detective. Her friend Rufus is accused of murder and Posie must help find the killer…and while she does, she discovers a whole other crime being committed and everything isn’t as it seems.

I always enjoy mysteries set in a time without modern conveniences. I thought the author did a great job of utilizing what technology they did have in the early 20’s which included some telephones and of course the telegraph. I did wonder how a photo got to England from Belgium overnight though.

The ending wrapped up the crime but left enough of a tease for the next book. Can’t wait to see what trouble Posie gets in to or if her love life takes off!”

★★★★★   A First Class Cozy Worthy of Agatha Christie, 1 July 2014

“Posie Parker is a struggling Private Eye in the 1920s when a retiring investigator asks her to team up with his son who has a good business tracking and spying on people for attorneys.This leaves Posie free to handle the higher profile cases. On Valentine’s Day, there’s a murder centering around a fantastic stolen diamond with a dark past, and one of Posie’s friends is accused of being involved. Much of the action centers around a theatre where the diamond thief worked. Posie has to hob nob with the rich and famous at a secret private club to follow the leads that keep dropping into her lap. It’s a great story, with interesting characters set in a great time period, and a plot sufficient to keep you guessing. The owner of the stolen diamond forces Scotland Yard to work with Posie to find the diamond and clear his son of any involvement in the murder. There’s a villain who is sure to show up in future novels as Posie’s nemesis. There are several great women characters in this first of a series, and I look forward to seeing them in action again. This novel is well-written, well-edited, a first class cozy worthy of Agatha Christie.”

★★★★★   A Sticky Tricky Posie Cozy, 12 December 2014

“When Alaric Boynton-Dale, the famous explorer and honey farmer disappears, his family calls astute investigator Posie Parker in to investigate and try to find him, dead or alive. Then, when the murder of a famous mystery author occurs at their home while Posie is visiting, she is tasked with finding the murderer as well. Did Alaric kill her and run away? Did a family member set to inherit a fortune kill them both? If so, why would they kill the mystery author? And, when Posie finds a mysterious very valuable coin at the scene, known to always have been worn around Alaric’s neck, what does it mean? Does it implicate him as guilty? So many questions posed by Posie that you think they’ll never get sorted out. A very sticky plot glued together with honey. The author takes readers on a leisurely international ramble through 1920s England, France, Italy, Egypt and back again. Again, it seems the spirit of Agatha Christie is sitting on Hathaway’s shoulder. The transition to Egypt could have been smoother, and I hated the destruction that occurs in Egypt. It saddened me. But, all in all, I couldn’t put it down.”
