Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Well-drawn characters and a perfect plot make this historical mystery a winner.” Nancy Haddock, national bestselling author of Basket Case
“Clever and witty. Wilde artfully portrays Regency London, from its ballrooms to Bow Street, in all its glory and hypocrisy, and provides readers with a heroine worthy of our attention. With its colorful cast and scandalous intrigue, A Useful Woman would surely have set the famed patronesses of Almack’s atwitter.” Anna Lee Huber, national bestselling author of the Lady Darby Mysteries
“Wilde brings the haute monde of early nineteenth-century London to vivid life.” Publishers Weekly
