Don Graves of Canadian Mystery Reviews is a big fan of the new Sherri Travis Mystery: "This is by and far the best book by Phyllis Smallman I've read to date. All of her novels show professional control over the devices ... but Martini Regrets simply took a good story line and rode it to a great ending. This should be a breakout book for her..."
"The fourth Casey Holland Mystery is an enjoyable tale starring a caring, nice (perhaps too nice) heroine who suffers bumps and bruises while working two violent cases. Harder for Casey than the assault on her body is the "attack" on her mind by her ward. Readers will dive into The Deep End even with no water in the pool." —Harriet Klausner on Debra Purdy Kong's newest mystery
"With a room full of suspects and clues hidden in the minutiae of what surrounds them, this is a fantastic piece of work that begins and ends with a throng of life being held in one’s own hand" —Drusbookmusing.com on Cathy Ace's new Cait Morgan Mystery, The Corpse with the Platinum Hair
