Praise for Murder, Magic, and What We Wore:

“A cross between Jane Austen dramas and Harriet the Spy, this delightful strong female–led title mixes historical fiction and spy mystery with a touch of magic to produce a story filled with adventure. Jones infuses her female characters with boldness, intelligence, and wit. Refreshing.” —School Library Journal, starred review

Charming in a way that feels as sweetly ingenuous as its heroine.” —Christian Science Monitor

Murder, Magic, and What We Wore blew my bonnet off. Kelly Jones has found a fresh way to share the delights of the magical regency. I truly love this book!” —Caroline Stevermer, coauthor of Sorcery & Cecilia, or the Enchanted Chocolate Pot
A deliciously enchanting adventure full of magic, mystery and delight.” —Stephanie Burgis, author of Kat, Incorrigible

“A great deal of fun, one stitch at a time.” Kirkus Reviews

“A touch of Jane Austen, a dash of adventure, and just a hint of magic make it shine.” —Booklist

Funny and thrilling. A great choice for those who love Regency romances and adventurous heroines.” — VOYA

“More than a clever homage to Jane Austen, this novel plucks characters from history, legend, and contemporary middle-grade and YA Regency novels, dropping Easter eggs right and left for readers to discover on their own before finding their sources cited in the author’s note, which forms a must-read list for fans of the period.” — Bulletin

“The heroine’s interests prove that bravery and style can go comfortably hand-in-hand.” —The Horn Book
