“This series is inventive and delightful. I truly enjoy reading the humorous prose, written in an enchanting Victorian dialect.”


“I fear that I am in danger of developing a serious crush on Mrs. Beatrice Knight, the fierce and funny heroine."


“As always, there is a lot of humour in this book. The author has a really great turn of phrase that just tickles me.”


“I loved the first book in this series and I was captivated by the second right away. Beatrice Knight is a force to reckon with, and the characters populating her stories are both delightful and maddening, but always interesting. As for the first book, I truly enjoyed the witty and engaging narrative style, the exotic setting, and the plot that had me devouring pages to get to the end of the story.”
