Great fun.... Maclean has done a wonderful job of capturing Alcott's voice and style.... I suspect the real Alcott would have liked it and wished she had written it herself.
"A historically accurate and entertaining mystery series."
"It was perhaps inevitable that Louisa May Alcott, the pseudonymous author of so many blood-and-thunder tales, would, herself, take up sleuthing. This tale of dark secrets, mysterious men, and heiresses in distress will please any reader who has longed to pursue Jo March's 'sensation stories,' those lucrative tales that allowed Beth to go to the seashore, but of which the good Professor Bhaer so stoutly disapproved. As Jo herself might say, a thumping good read."
