Review for Murder Most Welcome

Still getting some great reviews for Murder Most Welcome which came out last May. This one is from the Historical Novel Review.

Nicola Slade
Charlotte Richmond is an outwardly grieving Victorian widow who comes to live with her husband’s family. Her husband’s apparent death in India came as a welcome relief to Charlotte, and she hopes to settle down to a quiet life in an English village after her own rather shady upbringing. When her husband returns unexpectedly he puts the house in an uproar. It is when he is murdered for a second time that the fun starts and Charlotte’s own past threatens to catch up with her. Villains and fainting Victorian ladies--this book has it all. Nicola Slade’s attention to period detail and fast action with a mix of romance makes this a worthy successor to those 19th-century sensation novelists. It is a well paced and witty read from start to finish, and one of the most entertaining books I have ever read.

Congratulations, Nicola. It's good to get a review for a book that's been out for a while. A few days ago I was pleasantly surprised to get a review of my psychic spy thriller 'The Prague Manuscript' in a local monthly magazine.
