Advance praise for Don’t Make a Scene
“Don’t Make a Scene is a frothy, witty delight that stealthily delivers some very healthy ideas about love, real estate, Cuba, and the movies, and surprises you into frequent sharp fits of laughter. Valerie Block is that comic sensibility for whom fans of Mitford, Spark, and Waugh have been waiting!”
–Alice Elliott Dark
“An entertaining winner.”
Praise for Was It Something I Said?
“A true comedy of bad manners . . . An infectious celebration of neurotic love. Hands down irresistible.”
“Block slyly chronicles the neurosis, annoyances, and chemistry that bind this unlikely, likeable duo.”
“Three parts humor to one part horror, Was It Something I Said? considers the perils and possibilities of personal and professional compromise. And it barely misses a beat.”
–The Washington Post
None of Your Business
“Not only is None of Your Business a terrific mystery story, but it’ll also be the funniest book you’ve read all year.”
“Doesn’t Valerie Block know that mystery dialogue isn’t supposed to sparkle? . . . . A magnificently dry social commentary, cunningly smuggled inside a meticulously researched, perfectly paced police procedural.”
“A delightful and original romp.”
