STARRED REVIEW:  “Well-rounded characters match the finely crafted plot. Cozy fans will want to see a lot more of Charlotte and friends.” — Publishers Weekly 

“Plenty of mysterious circumstances and quirky characters are spiced with a romance that hints at future complications.” — Kirkus Reviews

“Reserved For Murder moves at a steady pace and is an excellent choice for a beach read or an airplane ride. It is easy to put down and pick back up without losing track of the storyline or confusing the characters. Any reader who prefers cozy fiction will likely find this a well-written, enjoyable book and if they like series reads, this offers them the opportunity to experience the books from the beginning and follow along as new books are written.” — Mystery and Suspense Magazine

“This was exactly the kind of mystery I want to read as I while away a few hours relaxing in the garden. It reminded me of the feeling I get when reading an Agatha Christie. It was the perfect small-town mystery, with enough twists and turns and a myriad of suspects, to keep my brain trying to work out whodunnit.” — Kitty Cat’s Book Review Blog
