{REVIEWS}

"Curtain Call is another clever, fast-paced romance from this talented writing team. The intriguing plot is driven by two interesting lead characters -- one-legged opera singer Emily Forbes and the distinguished Dr. Samuel DeKlerk, who specializes in treating the mentally ill (of which there are plenty in post Civil War New York City). As with the first two books in this marvelous series, I was totally engaged in the mystery and drama and was ultimately inspired without feeling like I was being preached to. I highly recommend and hope there's more to come. Well done!" ~ Jean Wells of Curtain Call

"Fans of Nancy Drew are going to love this tale of an aspiring author who finds herself thrown into a mystery all her own. Ms. Richardson kept Gemma and me both on our toes! I’ve read other books by this author and loved them, so I’m definitely looking forward to more from this series." Nathan Daniela Silva of The Counterfeit Clue

"Nancy Drew started me on my way as a lover of mysteries, especially the cozy variety, and I thoroughly enjoyed The Counterfeit Clue and its references to the famous girl detective. Aspiring author Gemma and her friend Carol, with whom she had been a member of the Olentangy Heights Girls' Detective Society (otherwise known as the Nosy Parkers), renew their friendship only to have it cut short when Carol is killed in a hit and run. Gemma gets entangled in the mystery that ensues and is instrumental in discovering Carol's murderer and the events that led up to that fateful day. In addition, there might be a romance beginning! I look forward to following how the characters develop in future books. This story is well written and paced to keep my interest. A truly refreshing premise added to my reading enjoyment as it is a long time since I have thought about all the Nancy Drew books that I have read in the past. I look forward to the next Nosy Parkers Mystery!" Karen Marks of The Counterfeit Clue
