A nice review of PAGAN SPRING appeared recently in the Denver Post:
"Pagan Spring" is sure to appeal to fans of mysteries done in the grand old style."
And the Richmond-Times Dispatch loves Pagan Spring, Fallen Women (Sandra Dallas), Poisoned Prose (Ellery Adams), and Duck the Halls (Donna Andrews). Of Pagan Spring, they write: "(Malliet's) readers can hope that summer is not too long a-coming in."
Thanks to friend Ellery for bringing this review to my attention. And thank you, Denver and Richmond! You were always two of my favorite towns, even before this!
Many thanks to Kirkus for this lovely review of the new Max Tudor mystery, PAGAN SPRING:
"A well-told tale whose greatest beauty, its charming cast of characters, binds together two generations."
Delighted by this reception for the third Max Tudor from Publishers Weekly.
The review opens: "Contemporary cozies don't get much better than Agatha-winner Malliet's third Max Tudor mystery." It ends "she's created well thought-out characters who are much more than stereotypes, and has added plenty of wry humor to boot."
The book is available for pre-order now, wherever you buy books.
They have gone for the whimsical look with these books, which I love. That is Max's dog Thea on the cover of WICKED AUTUMN. I predict she will be pleased by her starring role. Both books are available for pre-order now.
Isn't this color amazing? I can't wait to see the real thing. Now available for pre-order.

My article on "7 Things I've Learned So Far" about writing appears today at Writer's Digest. If you sign up to comment, you are entered for a free hardback copy of my most recent book, A FATAL WINTER.
Please note that while my advice is sometimes tongue-in-cheek, some of it involves things I've learned the hard way. I hope you will take a look and that you will enjoy reading it.
A nice review of A FATAL WINTER appears in the latest Crimespree Magazine (Issue 49):
"Well crafted and entertaining, this is a superb winter read."
