Advance praise (Pub date 6/6/17)
- “With its strong characters and vivid sense of place, the novel should draw from both camps… women’s fiction and mainstream mystery.”— Booklist
- “I LOVED this book! Great characters, great sense of place, great suspense. And the doll-making background was fascinating.” — Deborah Crombie, New York Times best selling author of Garden of Lamentations
- RT Romantic Times Book Review
“A uniquely intriguing mystery” “The suspenseful portions are fast paced, and the reader will race to find out how things will play out. The parts dealing with doll making and restoration are fascinating and add a dimension that make this novel different from the rest.”
- “Engaging portrait of three generations of bickering, bull-headed, but loving women challenged to become their bravest and best selves.” — Publisher’s Weekly
