Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Quickly paced and so clever, Burke’s debut is a winning semi-cozy caper, perfect for movie fans. She never misses a beat with her light rom-com banter, multigenerational ensemble, and sense of fun.” Library Journal (starred review)
“Impulsive Annabelle, speaking her mind sometimes in CAPS, is a winning protagonist, and this smart, snappy, whirlwind romantic mystery kicks off what promises to be an entertaining series.” Booklist
“Mystery meets romance meets noir meets caper…Burke’s debut features an appealingly offbeat set of characters.” Kirkus Reviews
“A hilarious romp through ‘Sin City’ and San Francisco by a shiny bright new pair of sleuths, Annabelle and Mickey. Movies, old and new, crooked cops, cats, and suspicious deaths combine to drive this first in what one can only hope will be a very long series.” Frederick Ramsay, author of the Ike Schwartz mysteries
